One Significant Moment at a Time, has awarded me this honor after I responded to both her pleas for advice on a query letter. And both times I picked at something – constructively, I believe – in addition to leaving some positive comments. Because Nicole is a writer who obviously wants to improve her craft, she took all the bloggers’ comments to heart. And so there are awards to acknowledge.
The Sweet Blog award is meant for a blog that you think is so friendly and makes you want to visit it often. I also think it pertains to bloggers who post helpful and kind comments. With this award, I have to pass it on to 10 people and those people need to make a post about the award (including the picture and the person who gave it to you).
Now wait, people. If you’re thinking what I’m thinking, you’re a bit tired of these awards. (It’s okay to admit it.) But the “sweet” side of me sees these as the equivalent of The Screen Actors Guild Awards, where your peers want to give credit where credit is due. It’s not the Academy Awards, but even better in a way because of the confidence these awards inspire.
So my ten blogs to honor as being very visitor-friendly?
1. Courtney Barr at Southern Princess
2. Aleighopolis (since we are members of our own mutual admiration club)
3. DL Hammons at Cruising Altitude
4. Dangerous with a Pen
5. Anissa Off the Record
6. KLM at A Rock in My Pocket
7. Maybe Genius
8. Lola Sharp at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword
9. Elaine AM Smith at Still Writing
10. Roxy at A Woman’s Write
This is not to say that the other blogs I follow aren’t stupendous and friendly. It’s just that in this peer-honoring practice of award giving, I’m trying to be fair and recognize everyone. I really do love you all…in that blogger way ;-)
