A Really Nice Award

I have to admit that I'm very bad at remembering to post the awards that I am lucky enough to receive. This award was actually awarded to me on June 1st, so you can see what I mean. I really wanted to post this one once I found it, because it has such a nice sentiment.

This is from Michelle at Lollypops and Lizards. It's one of those blogs that I was following, but then Blogger lost my follow list & I missed getting back to following her. I will be following her again, because I love her blog. She's got a great mix of fun and real life.

This award states:
Neno's Award - Rules & Regulations:

1.As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.

2.To seek the reasons why we all love blogging.

3.Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.

4.Don't forget to mention the person who gives you the award.

5.Answer the award's question by writing the reason why you love blogging.

6.Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like.

7.Don't forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.

Obviously I did a terrible job with rule #3, but I will carry on anyway.

I love blogging for the ability to write and share my life, but also as someone who suffers from some mental illness that prevents me from having a lot of friends in my life, this is really a great way for me to connect with people and make great friends. I have received more support and laughs from my blog friends than I can ever repay.

Now some friends who encourage friendships through blogging:

Mimi at He & Me + 3

Emily at Marvelous Recipes

Joy at Joy To The Blog

Blue Violet at A Nut In A Nutshell

JD & Max's mom at Schnauzer & Schnauzer

Jenn at {delightfully. cliche.}

And because I'm having a bad hair day, Carolina at Brinkbeest In English

I have had a met a ton of great friends through my blogging, I could make the list even longer, but these are the folks who have really been there when I was struggling in one way or the other, always give good advice and regularly make me laugh with their comments and posts.

Liz Mays said...

I'm so happy that we've become blogging buddies and I hope that since we both live in Michigan someday we'll meet in real life too!

Thank you so much!!!!!

Carolina said...

Actually, I'm having a bad hair day too (no really) and I will therefore graciously accept this award and post it.

(By the way, I hate being photographed, I always look really stupid, especially on paper, but for the photography course I'm doing we had to make a selfportrait and this came out reasonably acceptable, that's why I finally had the courage.
Thanks for mentioning it. You are the best and I'm glad to be among your friends. Big virtual hug ;-))

Emily @ Marvelous Recipes said...

All I can say is THANK YOU Mimi!!! You are one of my most special blogging friends. Your comments of encouragement have brought me through some low spots and made me smile many times when I wasn't feeling like smiling. I will always treasure your friendship and hope someday to meet you in person! Thanks again for giving me this beautiful award! :)

Jenn said...

Sounds like you're feeling better. Glad those pigs didn't get the best of you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Sorry it took me a while to pick this up - I'm getting more and more scatty as I get older - ha ha! I'm so excited to get this award - thank you so much! The friendships that I have made through blogging have been wonderful and warm and mean so much to me. I'm going to post this award for next week's 'Thankful Thursday' - I hope the boys don't mind me using their blog, he he! Hugs - Clare
