Award Time


On Friday, Tyrean of Tyrean's Writing Spot presented me with the Blessed Blog Award. Thank you, Tyrean! I am blessed and honored by your kindness. 

                           

I am passing this award to Susan J. Reinhardt of Christian Writer/Reader Connection. Not only has Susan's blog been a blessing, but her friendship and support are gifts I am thankful for.                                                                      

Several months ago, Tyrean gave me two others, the Blogger Buddy Award and It's Like We're Soulmates award. Many thanks, Tyrean, for being a faithful follower and blogging friend. If you have a minute, hop over and visit Tyrean's blog; she is featuring a 365 Days of Blessings series. Quite inspiring, and a wonderful daily reminder of all things thankful.

Lydia Kang of The Word is My Oyster, and Rhonda Schrock of The Natives are Getting Restless blessed me with The Versatile Blogger award. Thank you, Lydia, and thank you, Rhonda! I appreciate your thoughtfulness, and I'm glad we've met through this amazing world of blogging. Lydia's blog is dedicated to the craft of writing and always has a grand assortment of topics and discussions. Rhonda's blog is another stop full of goodies and humor about writing and life.                                            


Lynn at Place to Create bestowed the Rose Award to Write Now a while back. Forgive the delay in sharing this Lynn, but please know it is gratefully accepted and appreciated! Lynn's blog shares about her writing journey and other treasures in Alberta, Canada.
The Write On award was presented to me by Lindsey Edwards of The Write Words. Thank you, Lindsey, your kindness is a blessing. Lindsey's blog is another treasure full of links, book reviews, and writing support.  
I have many blogs from which to choose to pass The Rose Award, The Versatile Blogger, and The Write On awards. But I cannot! My list of favorites is longer than my arm, so please, faithful followers, feel free to choose one of the three as my appreciation for your blog. Congrats to you! :)

Finally, Stephen Tremp of Breakthrough Blogs surprised me with the Awesomous Maximus Award. Stephen, thanks so much for your vote of confidence. It is greatly appreciated! Breakthrough Blogs documents Stephen's journey to publication, along with other essentials for the writing life.

What blogs have you found to be award worthy?

Have a happy writing week!

Blessings,
Karen

  4. I wouldn't know where to begin or end in listing my fav blogs. Each has a unique place in my heart, and often for very different reasons.

    You are a prolific blogger, and visitor of blogs, Karen. I've no doubt each award is well-deserved.

    Hugs,
    Kathleen

  11. Hi Karen .. well done on the awards - it's just lovely being recognised and acknowledged ..

    I too would have difficulty enumerating various bloggers - because I love reading so many .. for different reasons and because I relate so to the actual blogger themself .. that's the bit I like & the learning curve .. that's great too ..

    Have a great week - Hilary
