Pay it Forward - Awards

Comment today and win a few ebooks: You, Guys Read, The Ivy, and Paranormalcy.

First - I want to apologize that I am not able to visit everyone as much as I used to :( At almost 1,000 followers, you can imagine how hard it is.Though I cant help but feel like I'm missing out on catching up to all of you. Like the friends you don't see but want to. However, please know that I respond to everyone that comments on my blog and usually try and visit your blog as well . So if you want to be better blogger buddies, leave me a comment so I can come visit! :)

This post is long overdue and these people probably hate me because I never even publicly said thank you for the wonderful awards.

Over the last several months - Ive gotten some frawesome (freaking awesome) and very thoughtful awards that I never passed forward or even posted about. But I did keep them all in a folder so today is about you.

I'm spreading the love....if you guys are not following these blogs - you are truly missing out!

General Rules - pass on each award to 5 bloggers forward, link back to giver of the award, and let your awardees know you gave them an award.

Congrats on all your awesome awards, Shelli -- and on having so many wonderful followers!

Fellow Atlanta resident, Zoe Courtman (No Letters On My Keyboard) is orchestrating a GA writer/bloggers get-together, some time in August. Her post explaining the idea and open invitation is HERE. If you're interested, let me know!

((hugs)) Nicole

Gail said...

Wow! Isn't it great to be so loved!!! You are always so supportive of other bloggers and writers, Shelli. Those of us still unagented and unpublished see you as a role model and mentor (even if you are younger than me!!!)

See you next week in LA!

Martina Boone said...

Awesome awards! I just find it fascinating that you know how to post the awards in the margin of your blog...I'm still in the remedial stages of type + post. :)

I impress very easily.

Jemi Fraser said...

Congrats on all the awards Shelli - and don't worry - no one could ever be mad at you! You're too sweet!

I have a had time keeping up with 250 blogs, don't know how you'd even think about doing that for 990!!

Erika Powell said...

congrats on all the awards, there is nothing better than blogger love!

Cambria Dillon said...

Congrats! Is it ok to admit I have button envy? (And this totally takes me back to when everyone in grade school used to collect glittery stickers and neon-colored erasers...to which my mom used to hand me the regular old rubbery erasers like *that* would make me cool!)

Riv Re said...

Congrats and thanks sooo much! This is my first award EVER!!! I'm bouncing up and down in my seat from happiness!
I'm going to bounce along to my blog to share the good news!

throuthehaze said...

And I know what you mean about commenting. It can be overwhelming. Your replies are appreciated, though. Hugs!

Shalonda said...

Congratulations! These awards are very much deserved. It is so easy to see how hard you work and you've got a wonderful personality that shows in your posts!

P.S. Jennifer Jabaley makes me smile too! I think it is because she is so bubbly and has such a warm smile.
