I’ve been given an award!
Petra of http://www.indivisualism.com has given me a blog award. I’ve never gotten an award. I’m suitably humbled and tickled. Or tickled and humbled. Or tumbled and ….. Okay, I’ll stop. But I must say “Thank you Petra!” and encourage you to visit her blog for some fantastic eye candy and inspiration.
Now, I had to ask what the protocol is after winning a blog award. Petra says one version is that “you have to share seven things about yourself and then pass the award on to seven bloggers. Another one says you have to pass it on to 15 blog(gers) with less than 200 followers. I think the important thing is to be happy about it and pass it on to whoever you think deserves it :)" Or I can do what Petra did and throw out the “rules” and do whatever the hoopity-hoop I want to do. So. Hmmmm.
Okay, I’ll play by the rules for a change. I’m choosing to award 15 bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers. It was really tough to narrow it down to 15! I’ve come across so many enlightening, creative, silly, fun, and inspirational blogs these past few months. But here’s my short list. Check them out. There’s something there for everybody!
