A little while ago I was quite humbled that Caffienated Cowgirl thought of me when she was handing out awards. Blogging is addictive, it completely took over when I first started, now it's just part of a routine (that's not a routine if you understand?!). Most people start blogging for themselves and then it's a lovely surprise to meet lovely people, that's just a bonus. I love visiting other people's blogs, it's fun to read other people's ramblings. Caffienated Cowgirl recently started a new blog Just this side of normal an amalgamation of Culinary Cowgirl and Caffienated Cowgirl. Just this side of normal is a great read so get yourself over there and take a peek and thanks CC, it was a lovely surprise!
The Thoughtful Blogger Award is for “those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others’ feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.”
The Power of Schmooze Award is for bloggers who “effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”
I would like to pass on these awards to, in no particular order
Kelly-Jane at Cooking the Books
Fiona at Cottage Smallholder
Asha at Foodies Hope
Nora at Lifes Smorgasbord
Meeta at What's for lunch, honey?
Truffle at What's on my plate
Marie at Marie's Muses
Tanna at My Kitchen in Half Cups
All of the above people have made me feel great with their lovely comments and e-mails. There are others, but I know they've already had awards. It's never good to choose just a handful, I'd like to pass it on to everyone who leaves comments on my blog but not sure I'm allowed. So much for being a rule breaker, eh?
