Beautiful Blogger Award

Beautiful Blogger AwardThanks so much to Nezha over at the Arab Writer Chick for nominating me for the Beautiful Blogger award. You made my day. The Beautiful Blogger Award is for creativity, originality, and overall contribution to the blogging community. I am honored.

Okay…so, I’m supposed to offer up 7 Random Things About Myself.

1. In the morning, before I even pour my coffee, I put music on.

2. I prefer shopping for books more than clothes.

3. I caught a squirrel when I was little (with my bare hands).

4. I love the color, blue.

5. I am overly fond of commas in my writing.

6. I love to dance.

7. I’m ambidextrous.

NOW, I’d like to pass on the honor by nominating a few blogs that I love to read.

1. Judy over at Connecting Dots to God for her deep and thought-provoking posts. Absolutely love the one “Would You Recognize a Master?” What a great reminder to stop and PAY ATTENTION!

2. Cara who writes This Little Light is definitely succeeding at spreading joy, light and love. Her posts are alive with wit, beauty and warmth.

3. Tracie over at Tracie Louise Photography who greets me each morning with a wonderfully expansive photograph that reminds me to take a deep, peaceful breath and focus my strength on the day.

4. Pepper Basham who writes of faith and family at Words Seasoned with Salt. She is a beautiful person and wonderful writer…and now, I”m happy to say, a friend. (I first followed Pepper’s blog and then met her at a recent writer’s conference. I am truly blessed to know her.)

5. Sherry over at Fabulous 50’s has explored many-a-country and provides lovely photos and info for anyone who wants to get out and see the world.

6. Katy down under at the Storytelling Nomad. She writes about the incessant need to read, write and travel. What’s not to like?

  1. A BIG congrats to you, Marney, on receiving this award. Your blog is most deserving. And another ENORMOUS thank you for nominating my blog, and all the kind things in which you had to say. I am truly honored . . .

    So, it looks like you and I have quite a bit in common; with the exception of your number 3, (I’ll work on that . . .) I would have to give a fervent nod of assent to the others. At the moment, Norah Jones lulls me awake with her soulful voice, and . . . oh, commas, how I love you, so, so, so much! 😉

    Blessings to you!

    ~ Cara

    • Hey Cara, I noticed we like some of the same authors, too. Diana Gabaldon and Sarah Addison Allen. Music’s…right there, as well. Norah Jones has a new album out, but you probably knew that already.

  2. Oooo! My first Beautiful Blogger award! Thank you Marney, and big congrats to you too. P.S. I’m overly fond of commas in my writing too. Shh! 😉
