In the last few months I have read a few articles on how to create a successful blog. I can't remember where they were and forgot to save them so I can't do links, but anyway, I realize I break most of the pro-blogging rules. But I'm not trying to be a Pro-Blogger. I'm certainly not a professional writer and I don't give away anything but unsolicited advice....and awards: ) I don't try to use keywords, most of my labels aren't even relevant outside of my blog. Whether I'm just goofing off or getting some things out of my system, I love running my mouth......I mean typing away at whatever is in my head when blogging and commenting.
And reading. I have such a great group of blogs I'm reading. No matter how many things are different about their lives or personalities they all have two things in common, they are Moms and they are all Awesome!
3 Wonderful bloggers, 2 who have been very good to me,
Nicole @ Help! Mama Remote...
Susan @ Susan Fobes' Family Formula
And someone I am more newly acquainted with
TheMomshell @ the momshelter ( You gotta love that name! Very funny Lady! )
have given awards to me recently.
Thank You So Much Ladies, I Appreciate You Thinking of My Blog! Please forgive me for taking so long.
I have been tardy in passing these on and have been working on this post for awhile but I had a lot of stuff going on and kept getting distracted......or disorganised.....or lazy...
I decided to follow My Pattern and Bend the Rules a bit.
For the Happy 101 you list 10 things that make you Happy and try to do each one that day.
For the Sunshine you pass on to 6 others that spread Sunshine to you.
And a Bloggy -Just Cause You're Awesome!
My Bended Rules, I mean Bent....or twisted beyond recognition.....are
You can follow the regular rules if you wish or you can just put it on your blog to enjoy, you don't even have to do a link back to me. Some of you don't do awards or have these already & that's Ok too. You can pick, choose, grab'em all or you don't have to put them anywhere unless you want to.
I am just letting you know I Appreciate all of you!
The only string is that you take a look at this list and my followers box and choose someone who seems nice that has a blog you haven't visited before and check it out, spread a little Sunshine and make their day with a nice comment.
I am combining and Including the 3 Bloggers above, I am listing 16 bloggers/blogs that make me Happy by....
Sharing your sense of humor, touching & interesting stories about your lives when I visit your blogs. When I started out I was looking for moms with teens but I soon realized there was a world of voices out there and it didn't matter where you lived, what your age was, or your children's ages, married newly, forever or not at all. SAHM, WAHM, or Work Away Mom. I am always enriched in some way when I visit you.
These are also given for Making My Day and spreading some Sunshine to me by coming by & leaving your comments! My Little Blue Book never answered back and I have to admit I really enjoy seeing that # that says someone stopped by and actually read what I have to say. Thank You!
