Did you know Cherish D’Angelo, who posted here on Monday, is posting today at my Goodreads blog? Did you know I HAVE a Goodreads blog? Well, now you know.
Did you know they’ve upped the ante on the One Lovely Blog Award? You used to pass it on to eight other bloggers; now, it’s fifteen. The last time I was given this award (also by N. R. Williams), I passed it to Carol Preflatish, Sara D, Audrey Lintner, Ann Littlewood, Amanda Borenstadt, Bodie Parkhurst, Mary Montague Sikes and M. T. Logan. So who’s left? Well, in two words, puh lenty.
- Barbara J. King’s Friday Animal Blog
- Tara Cottrell Wright’s Bite the Bedbugs
- Chris Verstraete’s Candid Canine
- T. Lee Harris’ Comments from the Peanut Gallery
- Gene Bush’s Munchkin Nursery and Garden
- Heidi M. Thomas, writer, editor, writing teacher
- Jim Hilton’s Rambling
- Kurt Maxxon Racing News
- Leah Porter’s On Capitol Avenue
- Cheryl K. Tardif’s The Suspense is Killing Me!
- Stacy Juba’s Mysteries, Murder and More
- Stephen Tremp’s Breakthrough Blogs
- Victoria Klein, Writer – Photographer – Dabbler
- L. J. Roberts’ It Is Purely My Opinion
- T. H. Malfi, YA author
Many and varied. Highly recommended, every one. And I ran out of slots WAY before I ran out of good blogs!
WRITING PROMPT: Visit these 15 blogs and take the fifth word from each one. Write a story or poem using those words. It’s okay if some are repeats (the, a).

Thank you, Marian! My first award. Okay, okay–my ONLY award. LOL! Seriously, I appreciate it.

Very Cool! Thanks for the award. I’m honored. Move over Pulitzer Prize and NBA MVP trophy. This is actually the loveliest award I’ve ever received.

Wow Marian, you have definitely made my day! What a great thing- you know, for a blog with a small reach in the huge internet world, as mine is, this award means a lot. Thank you so much.

I didn’t know that Goodreads has blog. I normally link my blog there and just use it for contest. Hmm, worth checking out.

What an honor! Thank You. We will be sure to pass it on!

Marian, can you tell me the “rules” ? How often does this award go out?
Marian AllenOctober 11, 2010 at 8:30am
This is a viral award, Karen: It’s just passed along from blogger to blogger. When you receive it, you choose or find lovely blogs and pass it along. The first time it was passed to me, it was with the request that it be passed along to (I think) eight other bloggers. This time, the request was fifteen. So just pick a few (I think eight is more than enough–no sense spreading it too thin!) blogs you think are really good, for one reason or another. Post a picture of the award on your blog and who your picks are to receive it, linking to them in the post. Then visit their sites and leave comments, telling them they’ve won and why you chose them and including a link to your post, the way I did. If you can’t comment, for some reason, see if you can send them an email. 🙂
