It’s been a very award winning season for me. No more pouting when I see these lovely tags on other’s blogs. Now I have quite a collection of my own!
I was granted the 7×7 award by the lovely and talented Ms. jmmcdowell. Check out her blog. Archaeologist by day, novel diva by night. Thanks so much for the nod!
The Rules — 7 x 7 Link Award
- Thank the person who gave you the award. (Check)
- Write a post about it. (Ummm. Doing that now. Check)
- Answer 7 questions about yourself. (Erghh. See below)
- Link to 7 of your own posts: Most Surprisingly Successful, Most Underrated, Most Popular, Most Beautiful, Most Helpful, Most Controversial and Most Pride-Worthy
- Pass the award along to 7 bloggers who you think deserve it
Favorite color: As girly as it is, I’ve recently become extremely fond of pink. In a house with 4 men, it’s the only way to claim something as mine.
Favorite animal: I have a big floppy poodle sleeping on my foot. She’s cool, but it would probably be a tie with my wonderful koi. (You can see a few of my koi swimming behind Eric in yesterday’s video. The rest are in heated ponds outside) Chloe’s going to be tested for Canine Good Citizen some time this week when the AKC confirms. If there was a test for fish, I’d give it to my koi.
Favorite number: If I told you that… I’d have to kill you.
Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Gatorade Has to be green, and cut 50% with water
Facebook or Twitter? I’m not terribly fond of either, but I am addicted to my email.
My passion: Writing and teaching. I love creating new worlds, or maybe just escaping this one.
Getting or giving presents? I love watching the expression on someone’s face when they open a special present. Christmas videos are classic just for this.
Favorite pattern: Swirly swishes. If you don’t know what this is, look for some dividers in my blog.
Favorite day of the week: Thursday. Only one day left before I can sleep.
Favorite flower: I’m rather fond of daylilies… The big exotic (expensive) ones… not the yellow ones you see everywhere. I’m pretty fond of the water lillies in my pond, too.
Okay… that wasn’t all that hard. This will be though.
7 Posts in the following categories:
Most Surprisingly Successful: Sucking out your creativity…Cancer
Most Underrated: Book Review of Throne
Most Popular: I had to look this up, Funny, my most popular all-time post is the Kreativ Blogger award and Honorable mentions. That one is still drawing people in. Maybe because I listed so many great blogs to check out, people keep coming back. Not sure.
Most Beautiful: Art of Conflict. I don’t know, I just love the way that one looks with all the images.
Most Helpful: Any of the Gold Mine Manuscript Series. Everyone seems to get a lot out of those
Most Controversial: Tee Hee. It’s sitting in my queue. It’s called “The dreaded F-Bomb” Some day, I will publish it. I Promise.
Most Pride-Worthy: Pride is a bad thing. I don’t feel prideful about anything. However, I was happy that I could make a friend feel better in “Don’t take it out on your Beta Reader“
This was actually a really cool exercise. I never went back before to see what my popular posts were. I found it funny to see that many of my first posts only had 1-2 views TOTAL. I may have to re-post some of the better ones. It was neat, though, to see my numbers going up over time.
Okay. There seems to be no criteria at all for this award, so since I have been hanging around my stats anyway, I am going to award this to the top commenters on my blog, and a few new cyber-friends who recently joined in the fun. This is my “Thank you” for making my blog a warm and cozy place to hang out.
Okay, so that’s eight… not seven.
I’m a writer not a mathematician gosh dern it!
