An Award

First, Susan gave me an award! She has a wonderful blog and I'm honored that she likes mine too!

Here is what is said about the Premio-Dardas: "This award 'acknowledges the values that every Blogger displays in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values with each message they write.'
Awards like this have been created with the intention of promoting community among Bloggers. It's a way to show appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web."


Here are the rules:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted it to you, along with his/her blog link.
2. Pass the award to (15) other blogs that you feel are worthy of this recognition. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen as recipients.

Here's my peeps, and if you're not on here, I'm super sorry! It doesn't mean your blog isn't great, just that I ran out of numbers. Or it could mean I already saw you picked on someone else's blog. :-)

Anita: For her poetic prose and cool posts

Keli: For her encouraging interviews

Terri: For her helpful writer's spirit

Karen: For her Godly mommy-wisdom

Kristen: For making me chuckle and providing tons of writing links

MC, Candi, Jenn and John at Musetracks: For their tenacity and humor while pursuing publication

Story Sensei: For Camy's devotion to helping writers

Miss Snark: For being one of the first to bridge the gap

Jeanette: For her devotions on God and His Grace

Eileen: For sharing the ups and downs of the writing journey

Donna: For a snazzy blog with great writing-centered posts

Bookends: For educating writers with kindness and patience

LaShaunda: For helping me to discover the "follower" feature (she was my first!) and also for the influence her blog/magazine has had for authors.

Angie: For all the links and laughs over at her place!

Christina: For her transparency in sharing her journey to publication

I'm so grateful to know all of you! Thank you for stopping by my blog. :-)

Whoops! I was supposed to come over and tell you! :-)

Congratulations on getting the award, Jessie! You really deserve it for all of your well-written, helpful, and hopeful messages about the writing journey and life in general.

And thanks so much for awarding me! I feel so ... unworthy. Heh. Poetic prose? How FLATTERING! I'll post my awards later next week since I just put up a post yesterday. (Is there a time limit on it?)

Thanks again. You gave me a smile to wake up to. :-)

anita said...

Oh, and how come I'm not in your "follower" list? Is it because I'm on LJ? Is there some way I can put myself up there? Because you know I totally follow your blog. Teehee...

I was just curious. :-)

Jessica said...

Hey Anita! I think there's some sort of thing your supposed to click on, but I'm not sure how. :-)

I would've answered your e-mail by now, but you know who has been hogging the computer all morning!

Kristen Painter said...

Congrats and thanks for passing it on!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Congrats on the deserving award, which I don't see how I qualify, but am grateful for the inclusion! :) (Now...going check out all the other winner blogs you listed.)

Jessica said...

Angie, You definitely qualify! You always have interesting stuff on your blog. :-)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Jess -

Great list! I know some of these folks. Congratulations to all of them.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Jessica said...

Thanks for stopping by, Susan! :-)

Eileen Astels Watson said...

Congrats to you Jessica! And thanks for including me!!

Irritable Mother said...

Awww, thanks, Jessica.
Some days I don't feel like "wisdom" should be anywhere near my name, but I'm glad God can speak through my trials. *grin*

Terri Tiffany said...

Thank you much for thinking of me! I am terrible of making lists and passing it on--(maybe I don't deserve the award) but I admire those who do!! Blessings!

Jessica said...

That's fine. I enjoy your blog :-)

Keli Gwyn said...

Jessica, sorry to be so slow with my reply, but my computer's been in the shop since January 24. I'm limping along on my daughter's older model and falling more and more behind. Thirteen days without my trusty sidekick is no fun.

Congrats on your award! How nice to be recognized for what you do.

And thanks for passing it on to me. I'm honored.

Glad you enjoy the interviews at Romance Writers on the Journey. I'm looking forward to yours on February 12th.

Jessica said...

Hey Keli,
You have an excellent, professional and interesting blog. You deserve an award. :-)
Thanks for "limping" by my place! And thank YOU for wanting to interview me. I'm the honored one. :-)
