A big thank you to theotherwatson over at wantoncreation for giving me the Reader Appreciation Award! It’s great to know that my comments (however brief) are appreciated.
In turn, based on the rules he has posted, I am to link back to his site (check), include the image (check), write what’s new with me, and pass the award along to 6 other people.
I think this is a great award because it’s a great way to express our gratitude to the people who read and comment on what we write. For me, it gives me a sense of accomplishment to know that I’ve reached someone in some way that they want to comment on my posts, and I appreciate it. I started this blog as a way to get reading and books out to people, certainly not the most original idea by far, but I’m glad there are people out there who read what I write. Over the past few months, I have noticed that my blog has evolved into more than just about books and I’m happy for that. (And I’m happy people are still following me, with new ones coming every week!).
So what’s new with me? hmmmm Well, I’ve completed 5 sewing classes and they’re really fun. I’m super busy at work and can’t believe it’s already been 2 months since I started the job. I really like all of the people that I work with and for and they’re all great. One of my cousins is having a baby boy and I knitted a little hat for him and I’m hoping to actually start a blanket I cast on a couple weeks ago… I’ve been reading The Count of Monte Cristo… I guess that’s really it right now.
Okay, without further ado, without the people listed below, I don’t think I’d be as involved with my blogging and so what better way to thank you than to pass the Reader Appreciation Award on to you?
SJ at Snobbery
Jessica at Shhh…Mommy’s Blogging…
Mandy at Adventures in Borkdom
Geoff at The Oddness of Moving Things
Mrs. Pea at Mrs. Pea’s Perspectives
Tanya at Green Paw Paw
Valentina at Peek-a-Book
(and of course, I’m sending it back to theotherwatson!)
While I may have only listed a few, this does not mean I do not appreciate all of my readers. I do!! I honestly appreciate every single one of you that has stopped by and even skimmed something I wrote. I love interacting with all of you. And you can be sure that every time I get a comment from someone new, I hop on over to his/her blog to meet a new fellow blogger as soon as I’ve responded to the comment.
So THANK YOU so much to all of you!
