Awards and Love

Wow, that dialogue blogfest was amazing - and huge! It took my the entire week to finish getting through, but I made it. Some of the links were broken or the person didn't end up participating, and there were a few I went back to that I had commented on and my comment was gone - I re-commented in those cases. However, if you didn't get a comment from me, it was blogger, I pinky swear :)

Thank you all for the comments on my piece. It made my day to read each and every one of them. I picked up quite a few new followers, too. Welcome to my little corner of Blogville newbie friends. I am astonished that I have over 150 followers!

On the flip side, I ignored my old friends something terrible while I busy reading lots of dialogue. I'll be spotty around here  - probably through the summer - but I will stop by both old and new hangouts whenever I get the chance.

I received that delicious award from the delectable DL over at Crusing Altitude. DL rocks, and so does his blog. DL is also having a blowout contest for having reached 300 followers! I didn't see any instructions attached on his blog, so I'll just pass it on to a few friends. How do I choose? I have so many sweet and kind friends on here! And I'm sure some of these bloggers already have it, but they deserve it again...

Susan Fields - I feel like I have my own personal cheerleader every time I read one of her comments. She's a great writer and has an awesome blog.

Summer - She is just plain sweet. Her blog is upbeat and fun - a great place to visit.

Amalia T - I love Amalia's stories. Each time I read a snippet it's like reading a mini story all in one. So great. And she leaves pretty great comments for me, too.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Have a wonderful week.
