Tiara TimePosted: July 23, 2013
It’s time to slip into my “diamond” tiara and my purple feather boa for a little celebration. Now, you might think I’m celebrating the Royal Birth, but I’m not. Don’t get me wrong. I am super excited that Baby Cambridge finally made his appearance, but just look how tired I am from being on Royal Baby Watch day and night for what seems like the last two weeks (probably because it has been the last two weeks). No . . . I am dressed in my most festive attire to celebrate something entirely different: blogging awards. I have recently received some very nice awards from my very nice blogging friends, and I am extremely happy to accept those awards and even more excited to share them with others.
At the beginning of July, my blogging friend at Shoeful of Drool presented me with the Sunshine Award. I hope you’ll click here to read about some of her favorite things (we share a fondness for purple and dogs, but not purple dogs . . . that would just be silly!) and that you will visit her other nominees. The Sunshine Award is presented to “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere,” so I could not be happier that this is my second nomination. You can click here to read “You Are My Sunshine,” the post I wrote for my first Sunshine Award nomination. You’ll find a list of my nominees there and you’ll also get to see my human mommy’s favorite puppy picture of me.
Last week I was super excited to receive the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from dogdaz. I hope you’ll click here to read seven interesting things about her (for instance, her dogs get away with much more than she should let them . . . the sign of a really good human!) and for links to her other nominees. This was also my second Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Click here to read “You Inspire Me,” the post I wrote when I received my first nomination. There you’ll learn that I think my human daddy is a treat dispenser. You’ll also find links to my nominees.
At the end of last week, Dogs N Pawz shared the WordPress Family Award with me. This award was created to recognize bloggers who “take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition.” I happily and humbly accept my third WordPress Family Award nomination. I hope you’ll click here to read “We Are Fam-i-ly . . . Get Up Everybody and Dance!” That’s the post that I wrote when I received my first nomination for this award and it includes links to all of my WordPress Family Award nominees. Click here for links to Dogs N Pawz’ other nominees.
Is my tiara still on my head? Good, because I have one more award to celebrate . . . and this one is a new one for me. If you think I’ve had a good month for awards, you need to visit Sand Spring Chesapeakes. In just one day and from just one person she received seven different blogging awards. Wow! And then, just because she’s such a super nice person, she turned around and passed all seven awards on to her nominees, including me. Thank you very, very much. You can click here to see all the awards that Sand Spring Chesapeakes received and to read her responses to the Awesome Blog Content Award.
I was really, really excited that the Awesome Blog Content Award was included in my very generous awards package because this is one that I’ve wanted to do for a while. Here are the simple requirements:
Add the ABC logo to your new blog post. Done!
Write one word or a phrase about yourself that begins with A, B, C, etc. About to be done!
Nominate some blogs. About to be done!
Leave a comment on those blogs to let them know! Will do!
Here are the 26 words that I have chosen to describe me, Little Miss Harper Lee:
WILLFUL…XANTHOUS (that means yellow)…YOUNGUISH…ZANY
And now I am thrilled to presented the Awesome Blog Content Award to the following awesome bloggers:
- Beagles and Bargains The perfect place for humans who are trying to survive pet parenthood without going broke.
- Bluestem Pond Follow life on a beautiful hobby farm and celebrate the joy of living a dream.
- clumsyfool Stop by for a visit to see the world–and I do mean the world–through this blogger’s eyes.
- Things I Want To Tell My Mother This lovely lady created her blog to remember, collect, and record special memories about her mother, who struggles with dementia.
- Wiley’s Wisdom This cute terrier mix has a heart of gold and stories of joy to share with the world.
Oh my goodness, between following the arrival of the Royal Bundle of Joy, thanking my blogging friends for a month’s worth of awards, and thinking of 26 words to describe myself–not to mention balancing this tiara on my head–I am exhausted. Thank you very, very much to the wonderfully creative, entertaining, and informative bloggers who have been so kind in sharing their awards with me . . . and congratulations to my nominees for the Awesome Blog Content Award. I look forward to seeing how you decide to describe yourselves in 26 words or short phrases and to meeting your Awesome Blog Content Award nominees!
