Reader Appreciation Award

Enormous thanks to Laura, The Quillwielder for her nomination for the Reader Appreciation Award. I love these things and I’m honored!

Reader Appreciation Award rules:

1) Include the award logo somewhere in your blog.

2) Answer these 10 questions, below, for fun if you want to.

3) Nominate 10 to 12 blogs you enjoy. Or you pick the number.

4) Pay the love forward: Provide your nominee’s link in your post and comment on their blog to let them know they’ve been included and invited to participate.

5) Pay the love back with gratitude and a link to the blogger(s) who nominated you.

The Questions for the Reader Appreciation Award:

1) What is your favorite color?

Today it is yellow. It might be a different color later in the day. I change favorite colors based on my moods.

2) What is your favorite animal?

That’s a hard one. I like them all. I’ll say birds because they are so interesting and resourceful.

3) What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?

Mocha, preferably with hazelnut or salted caramel flavor.

4) Facebook or Twitter?

Facebook. Twitter confuses and overwhelms me with all the input.

5) Favorite pattern?

This is a weird question. I’ll say, the self-fulfilling prophecy.

6) Do you prefer getting or giving presents?

Giving! I love making people smile.

7) Favorite number?

A googleplex.

8) Favorite day of the week?

Today

9) Favorite flower?

Pansy. They are pretty and they are an annual that survives the winter so I feel like I’m getting a super-good bargain.

10) What is your passion?

Jesus is my passion. Nothing else has any value for me without the sacrifice he made.

 

Blog Nominees:

Since this is reader appreciation, I’ll nominate my most avid blog readers! I’ll do 5.

  4. Reveal your 5 blog picks.

Here are my picks!:

http://caffeinatedautismmom.blogspot.com/ This is my dear friend’s blog! We met in college when we were “secret sisters”, both having the same last name (but not really related). We both had our families, and she encountered the extreme lifestyle challenge of having her two boys diagnosed autistic. This is her brave, fabulous, valiant life story in blog form.

http://dlmorrese.wordpress.com/ I am always finding this guy’s posts on the Tag Surfer! We’re doing the same thing and he has lots of great information and feedback written in a clear and engaging way.

http://tahlianewland.com/ Tahlia has a great flair for design and her blog is exciting! She really shows a great example of dynamic book promotion.

http://briaspage.wordpress.com/ Luv Ya has some direct opinions done in a darling way. Bria says it straight and I love it!

http://sarahwinters.wordpress.com/ Sarah is deep in the forest of diapers and sippy cups, and I feel her pain. Her expressions are delightful and her joy in her life shines out.
