A Tale of Two Awards

Well in the past few days I have been given not one, but two blog awards.

Firstly Rebecca Emrich from Living a Life of Writing passed the Prolific Blogger Award to me.

Rebecca truly is a prolific blogger basically always posting several times a week if not day. Thank you Rebecca.

The rules of this award are:
1. Every winner of the Prolific Blogger Award has to pass on this award to at least seven other deserving prolific bloggers. Spread some love!
2. Each Prolific Blogger must link to the blog from which he/she has received the award.
3. Every Prolific Blogger must link back to This Post, which explains the origins and motivation for the award.
4. Every Prolific Blogger must visit this post and add his/her name in the Mr. Linky, so that we all can get to know the other winners.

I am going to pass this award to:

1. Lisa at Lit and Life Lisa is one of my most frequent commenters and has a great blog into the bargain. So I have to for give her even if she is a Geelong Cats fan.

2. Lilithcat at Reading my Life Away I lurk fairly frequently at Lilithcat’s blog.

3. Deb at Ranch Girl Ramblings I’ve only just discovered Deb’s blog but I like what I’ve seen so far.

4. Tasha at Heidenkind’s Hideaway. I really like Tasha’s blog about books and art history (and other items), sometimes I even manage to leave a comment that seems vaguely intelligent.

5. Shelli at Market my Words. Sorry Shelli I know you have so many followers that you have probably been given this award a dozen times before. If so this will have to be “lucky thirteen”

6. Alyssa at On the Writer’s Road Less travelled. Alyssa has already self-published and is now working with an agent to get another MS to traditional publishers.

7. DJ Kirkby at Chez Aspire. DJ posts about living with Asperger’s, her family, her writing and many other interesting subjects.

My second award is from Deb at Ranch Girl Ramblings. Deb has tagged me with the Sunshine Award, the rules of which are: Rules to Accept the Award:
Put the logo on your blog in your post.
Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
Link the nominees within your post.
Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blogs.
Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

This is starting to seem like a lot of work. The only good thing about it is I don’t have to leave too many people out.
So with out further ado I nominate:

1. Sarah at Falen Formulates Fiction Sarah Blogs about writing.

2. Jax at Lassy in Lancashire. From as you can guess Lancashire Jax, has only just recently started blogging, but boy has she begun with a bang.

3. Amanda at Life and Times of a New New Yorker. Amanda blogs about life in NY, books, her dog Charlie and she posts some lovely photos.

4. Rayna at Coffee Rings Everywhere. Rayna is from Bombay in India and blogs about life as she sees it. I would encourage you to visit, Rayna has an interesting take on many aspects of life.

5. Elspeth at It’s a Mystery. . Elspeth is a published mystery game and script writer and offers all kinds of advice about writing.

6. Kristen at We Be Reading. Kristen posts book reviews, about writing and about life with her little one “Z”

7. Michele at Southern City Mysteries . Except I’ve just noticed Michele has already been given this award. Ahh well, Michele will just have to have two Sunshine Awards!

8. Michael at Book Making . Michael has embarked on an almost Quixotic campaign to discredit vanity publishers.

9. Lynette at Chatterbox Chit Chat. Lynette has a blog with piles of writing tips.

10. Anne at Suspense by Anne. Anne talks about suspense fiction, particularly her own.

11. Tiana at Spilled Ink Tiana blogs about her writing experience and reviews.

12. Last but not least Vicki at the Shy Singer/Songwriter .

Now I have had enough.
As I have not yet posted a single piccie I will share one I took last weekend.

Falen said...

Thanks! the award is very pretty! I will post about it next week

Tiana Lei said...

Thanks! I'll have to post it soon, I'm a couple of awards behind. I've been doing a bit of crisis construction on my site, so it might take me a little bit.

Lynnette Labelle said...

Just wanted you to know I mentioned you on my blog today. Hopefully, you'll pick up a few of my followers. Have a great weekend! Thanks again for the award.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Thanks for the award. I'm completely hopeless at passing these things on, but I do appreciate getting them!

DJ Kirkby said...

Thanks for my award :) and that's a lovely photo at the bottom of your post.

Kristen M. said...

Thank you, Al! I'm honored to get the sunshine award. :)

Al said...

Hi All,
You are all welcome.
Thank you all for providing me with some great blogs to peruse.

Hi Lynette,
Thanks for the shout out.

Lisa said...

Thanks, Al! I'll get it posted this week; I've been bad about passing the awards on lately but I've taken to using it as an opportunity to introduce the blogger who gave it to me to other bloggers.

Deb@RGRamblings said...

Congrats Al and thanks for passing one along to me! :)

Al said...

Hi Lisa,
You naughty girl you.
No worries, whenever it happens.

Hi Deb,
Thank you.
You deserve it, so no worries.

Rayna M. Iyer said...

Did you think I had forgotten about this Award, or that I did not cherish it enough to pass it along?
Wrong on both counts. It took me this long to find a dozen people I wanted to pass it on to- pity one can't return Awards to the people who handed them out in the first place.

Al said...

Hi Rayna,
No, I did not expect you had forgotten this award.
I am aware how precious your time is. I had assumed you hadn't had time to pass the award on to others.
