Old School Harlequin nominated me for a Dragon’s Loyalty Award more than a week ago, and I have yet to say thanks. I’ve been busy. So, I’m saying thanks now, and congrats, OSHarley, on getting Liebstered again. Best of luck with your Facebook page, which will soon be added to the feed I use to track blogs with fan pages. I will never not say thank you for an award.
Thanks to Diana for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. She was nominated by E. of The Playground – a blog I heartily recommend. This is one of the first awards I noticed being passed around when I started my blogs, and it’s one I really wanted. I don’t rush to do nominations, but I do say thanks with a link within a day or two of receiving them.
I’ve said some of this stuff on comments threads and on Sourcerer’s awards page, but here is how I feel about awards. I love them. I enjoy receiving them and I enjoy passing them on. I think they are a good way to complement other bloggers on their work. I don’t attach any real status to them, but I do enjoy looking at a blog’s side bar and awards page when I first discover it to see which awards they’ve won.
Raven King nominated me for a Liebster Award last week, and the timing wasn’t so good. Not only had I just accepted a Liebster a couple of days before, (which, if you have ever written a Liebster acceptance post, you will know takes a bit out of you), but this blog is sadly ineligible because it has more than 200 followers.
I appreciate the nod, though.
So here is a thank you. I am not nominating 10 other blogs for a Liebster, but I am happy to have been nominated for it by multiple bloggers.
Here are Raven’s ten questions and my answers. You should read them. By the end of it I am in full interview mode. They are good questions, and answering them was a pleasure.
Nicole Sloan and Kerry from Aspernauts nominated me for a Liebster on Tuesday, but Sourcerer has too many followers to accept, so I Kerry graciously agreed to allow me to passed the nomination on to The Writing Catalog. I answered Kerry’s questions in my acceptance post over there today, but I thought it only fair, since I was nominated for my work here, to answer Nicole’s questions and link to my nominees here, as well. Here are my nominees:
