Creative Blog Award

            I know I said a while back that I wasn't going to be doing the blog award thing, but I did say that I would try to acknowledge them when I could.  This post has been sitting here since April, when I was busy with the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.    For the Christmas lull period while I'm on vacation I thought I'd preschedule this post of award acknowledgement.

           And speaking of Blogging from A to Z, if you aren't following the official Blogging from A to Z Blog I hope you will check it out.   Right now we are in the middle of a series of posts by past participants of the Challenge.  You won't want to miss any special announcements about the Challenge so I encourage you to follow and check in every now and then.  Blogging from A to Z sign-ups begin on January 30, 2012.

And Now For Some Awards:


              Creative Blog Award

           During the April A to Z Challenge, one of my event co-hosts, Jeffrey Beesler, passed the Creative Blog Award to me.  I wanted to thank Jeffrey for this gesture and the kind words that accompanied it.







            Another award from April came to me from Deidra Eden-Coppel at A Storybook World.     I don't recall what the award was but I noted it in this post I started months ago.  I think it had something to do with best Science Fiction blog or something like that.   Sorry Deidra.  But I still say thanks.




         Then there was this Jiminy Cricket commenting award from Jenny Pearson at The Pearson Report.   Thanks Jenny-- I try to leave as many decent comments as I can, but I'm not always so good keeping up with emails and such when I get inundated.  At least I saved the email she sent me so I could acknowledge this award.






I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

  13. I think the jiminy cricket award is the best. Somehow I think of you (however you want to take that in the most positive light!). And I love that photo from Wikipedia. It shimmers right off the computer screen!!

    I see in an above comment that you're enjoying family visiting right now. My daughter and I REALLY enjoyed being with my other three children and all the grandchildren yesterday also. Families are IT.

    Have a MOST wonderful last week of the Old Year.

  14. Interesting to learn about your naming journey. I'm going to go by my initials, partly to disguise my gender in the male-dominated SF world, and partly because initials look grown up and professional to me.
