PJ over at The Urban Recluse has given me an award! My first ev-ah blog award!
It's going right over there -> -> -> on the sidebar.
The Creative Blogger Award is actually the second. PJ also nominated me for a Schmooze Award earlier this month and I MISSED IT. [*bows head in shame*] I don't know how that happened but here it is, my very own...
As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”
I'm still new to this blogging business, so I didn't realize I'm supposed to nominate five other bloggers for the awards. In the spirit of paying it forward, therefore, I hereby nominate the following for the Schmooze Award:
KS Augustin (how's that bomb shelter?)
Manic Mom (you crack me up)
Kim (the maraca girl)
Kevin (the random guy)
Nyc/Caribbean Ragazza (buon giorno!)
And for the Creative Blogger Award, here are my nominees:
The Anti-Wife (blogging from the heart)
The Clarity of Night (virtual campfire)
Water the Blog (Matt, master of satire)
This Beach Called Life (he shoots from the hip)
Kanani, the Easy-Writer (free irreverance)
I'd like to nominate a couple more people, but I'm obeying the rules (for a change). I'll nominate my other favourite blog-buddies next time around.
