Guess Who Just Won Her First Blogger Award!
Not Once, But Three Times Over?
Me! Can you Believe it?
I’m a little bit in awe, still, of the fact that three different bloggers though I deserved an award! Your comments are always such a reward to me anyway, I guess thinking about blogging awards always made me think of bloggers who have been around much longer than I.
First Time’s an Honor
So imagine my surprise when a little birdy tweeted that she had awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award! I was floored when Melissa over at The Mommyhood Chronicles sent me a tweet with the news. I stared at my computer for several minutes to make sure it was for real. She’s been blogging for almost a year now, and we’ve tweeted a bit on Twitter. See her post here.
Second Time’s a Surprise
Then, Allison over at A Mom Knows Best shared the great news that she thought I was cool too. I have to admit to breaking into a grin! I had the privilege of connecting with Allison on Twitter as well, where we’ve become Tweetmates and buds! Allison is a multi-tasker–when she isn’t busy being a TV Anchor in New England, she runs her Mommy Blog, and she’s a pretty awesome lady to boot. You can see her post here.
Third Time Makes Kat’s Head Swell a Little
Then, in the comments on one of my posts, I heard from another remarkable lady. Stacie, who blogs over at Riley’s Smile, left the sweetest comment and asked if it was okay. Okay? I’m honored. Surprised. Starting to get a big … oh wait, no I’m humbled. 🙂 Stacie is a Mom Blogger with a sweet angel named Riley, and she blogs about the joy in her son’s smile. Riley happens to have an awesome smile. And he also has some special health care needs. (And an awesome brother named Ronan!). You can see her post here.
So here’s the thing about the Versatile Blogger Award
It comes with a few perks (i.e. my wonderfully swelled head and heart!) but it also comes with a few provisos:
Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
Share 7 things about yourself
Pass this award to 15 blogs
But I wanted to be a little different
So I’m putting a Cafe spin on this. This post is going to be my thank you post to the three amazingly awesome folks who awarded me. 🙂 And then I will post twice more before the weekend is over about the Versatile Blogging Award, the second time you’ll learn more about me (you should be scared), and the third time I’ll be sharing some of my favorite bloggers with you. With a twist.
No lists here.
I’m going to share some fact with you about each of these people that you won’t have easily known otherwise. I’ll be Blog-digging for facts and fun as I put my list together. 🙂 Bloggers who reply to all three posts receive brownie points, and extra tweets and Facebook shares. (What? I can’t bribe?)
Don’t worry, I don’t share skeletons, only happy, warm, and fuzzy things. And site buttons. I like them. They’re shiny.
Remember the Bloggers I said Awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award?
I didn’t see a personal blog button for my first friend and awarder, Melissa, so as an extra little gift I put together a very simple little button for her to have (if she wants, I won’t be offended if she turns her nose up!) Each of the following three buttons links to their blogs. Extra link juice for my awesome friends!
So there you have it, part one of a three part fun weekend for bloggers like me, who have an award. And maybe for bloggers like you! You never know, you might be on my list for The Versatile Blogger.
