Big time thanks to my friend Casey McCormick over at Literary Rambles for bestowing on this blog the Pot-O-Gold Award! I’m not sure what it is or where I collect my gold, but it’s very exciting to win:)
Christie Wright Wild created the award and here's the idea behind it:
"The Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award is awarded monthly, by me, to one blogger who I feel has a flair for interesting and helpful content, as well as visually appealing and easy-to-navigate design. In other words, it's like discovering a pot of gold! It's a site you will visit frequently and enjoy swimming around in for a while."
Thank you, Casey!
Here are the rules:
If you receive the Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award:
1. Say thank you to the person who gave it to you.
2. Write a post and include the image of the award, a link to the person's blog who gave it to you, and a link to my blog, WRITE WILD. (Copy and paste the rules in your post.)
3. Award four bloggers this award and tell why each is a Pot-O-Gold! (If you receive this award more than once, you only have to forward it the first time.)
4. Share four simple things about yourself: 1-a time you had to exercise FAITH, 2-something you HOPE for, 3-something (or someone) you LOVE, and 4-a time when you felt LUCK.
FAITH: I'm a writer. I have to exercise faith each and every time I sit down to write that someone, somewhere will want to read what I'm writing.
HOPE: I hope last night's final episode of Big Love was just a bad dream I had and that when I watch the real final episode it will have a better ending.
LOVE: I love Mrs. Ninja. Obviously. And Batman. And you, Esteemed Reader.
LUCK: I feel lucky because I have even more exciting interviews with authors and literary agents to share with you in the coming weeks.
Now then, I guess I'm supposed to choose four bloggers to give this award to. Hmmmm. Well, obviously I follow several writer blogs, so I'll just rule out the blogs of any authors or agents who have appeared here. I couldn't possibly choose among so many fine blogs and in a way, isn't having appeared on this blog award enough? No, I suppose not.
Also, my first choice would be Casey McCormick and Natalie Agguire, but I can't very well regift Casey's award back to her.
So I guess I'll choose:
BabylonSista at Confessions of a Cybernegress because I'm married to her:) You may note her most recent post is about a delicious beet recipe. Beets I ate. What's not to like?
Melina at Reading Vacation because she reviews way more books than I do and her love of reading inspires my own.
Michael G-G over at The Year of Writing Dangerously because of his great reviews of craft books and because I won a book there just a week ago and I really like winning things:)
Bruce at Building Batman. I have never commented on this blog nor reached out to Bruce in any way. But I do love reading about his mission to become Batman and I support this noble cause with all my heart.
That's it for now. I'll be back tomorrow with a new Book of the Week and I hope you'll be here too. And now here's a video of a man with puppets that makes me laugh and laugh:
