There are a few loose ends I would like to address following the A-to-Z Blogathon:
First of all, let me offer a heart-felt "THANK YOU!!!" to all who visited, commented, and became a follower of my blog during the A-to-Z Challenge! I will post a more detailed follow-up for the May 7th Feedback Post Day, but I wanted to be sure to let you know how much it meant to me to have your support during that month of insanity and deadlines, lol!
Also, back on S-Day, Lisa Vooght ("Li") at Flash Fiction awarded me a Liebster Blog Award.
During the Challenge, I thanked her in the comments, but I didn't interrupt the A-to-Z flow to do it properly in a dedicated post. So I'm doing it now:
Thank you very much for the Award, Li!
I've done some searching, and while its origins are spotty, evidently this is a blogging award that has been around for quite a while, and is passed on to "new and upcoming" bloggers (those who have less than 200 followers), in order to give them more exposure.
Well, I'm not really blogging to win awards, but I definitely appreciate the recognition, and I gladly accept -- in big part because the "Rules" of the award are that I have to nominate five other deserving blogs, and I'm very happy to pass some recognition on, too.
I have met so many wonderful fellow writers and bloggers, and I would like to nominate each and every one of you, but in keeping with the spirit of the award, I'm limiting it to those who don't already have the award, have less than 200 followers, and have been consistent visitors and commenters on my blog since I've met them (several of whom I've met during this A-to-Z).
So with these guidelines in mind, I would like to nominate:
--> Jessica at A Sort of Mental Squint
--> Susan at I Think Therefore I Am (OK she currently has 203 followers, but she doesn't already have this award, and if I'd passed on the award back on S-Day when I'd gotten it, she might have still been under the limit).
--> Nicole at Write Me A World
--> Gina at Diary of a Writer in Progress
--> Guilie at Quiet Laughter
You each have something unique and awesome to offer the blogosphere, and I'm very happy to help spread the word!
