The cool thing about awards is that you get recognized. Most of us don't do this bloggy thing because we get accolades, but because we enjoy being a part of a great community of people that enjoy writing and connecting with others. Even if it is in our living rooms in our pajamas. *cough*
So when Kelly passed this to me I was excited! (No matter that I've known her since 1979. For that alone she almost had to give it to me. Right?) (Just Kidding!) And now I must pass it along. Here are the rules:
- Award 5 bloggers! (this is the hardest part)
- Let 'em know in your post or via email, twitter or blog comments that they've received an award
- Share the love and link back to both the person who awarded you and back to http://www.mammadawg.com/2008/08/kick-ass-blogger-award.html
- Hop on back to the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky then pass it on (which you can also get to on the above link)
So, the "Kick Ass Blogger" Award goes to:
*Carmen at Mom To The Screaming Masses. She was the first "big" blogger to come around these parts and I'm honored to now call her my friend.
*Keetha at Keetha Stuff & Such. She has been a constant friend and is my fellow bloggy football fanatic. I can't wait for the season to start and for our friendly rivalries to pick up again. (Kee, I hope you're not offended by the language. I'm just passing along the luv.)
*Soliloquoy at She Just Had To Say It. This girl keeps it REAL. She inspires me to look to God in all situations. I'm sad that I had to pass up an opportunity to meet her IRL, but it is on my list of things to do ASAP.
*Gwendomama. I discovered her just before BlogHer then got to meet her there. I really admire her authenticity and her fortitude. Plus, her lighter/bottle opener rocks.
*Mary P. Jones of A Room of Mama's Own. I have just discovered her through the Great Interview Experiment. I am in awe of her strength and am excited to get to interview her. Her site is very different from mine- she deals with BIG issues but I suspect she's a lot like me- just a mom trying to get through the day to day with her kids and husband.
There you have it! If you haven't checked out these bloggers, do. They are totally worth it. And I can't wait to see who they choose to pass along the award to. My reader totally doesn't have enough blogs in it.
