An Award Winning Blog


An Award Winning Blog

After reading Susan Cooper’s blog post at Finding Our Way Now about blog awards I decided to do one myself and carry her new tradition forward.

Like Susan I have received awards from bloggers and they always bring a smile to my face. It is nice to be considered a friend among them. So I am going to recognize one of them, the most recent one, and then carry Susan’s award forward.

Sunshine Award


A. K. Andrew presented me with the Sunshine Award back in November and I have been sitting on it. My bad… A. K. writes over at Writers Notebook. Thank you A. K.!

Here is a snapshot of awards I have received over time.

Award Winning Blog

And now I am adding Susan’s award…

Blog Supporter Award

Some interesting facts about me that you may or may not want to know:

  1. My favorite color is red. When I was younger it was blue. I grew older and it was purple. Now it is red.
  2. I experience data panic if I don’t have access to the Internet.
  3. I love taking pictures but I am horrible at it.
  4. My avatar is Geek Girl, but will soon be Geek Grandma.
  5. I have a ‘thing’ going on with dark chocolate. Yes. I admit to sometimes indulging too much.
  6. I am a recovering app addict.
  7. Like Susan Cooper I have never been on a cruise.
  8. My second book is on the way. Fingers crossed it won’t arrive long after the grandchild does…

That’s not 10 things, but I think that’s enough about me. I am sure you agree.

So thank you to all my loyal readers and friends. Carry on the tradition and give ‘The Best Blog Supporter Award’ to your loyal fans.

    It's always nice to be able to show off a little award bling ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I'll have to save up passing my Best Blog Supporter Award for when I'm moving. Oh, and I love purple too. Then yellow. Red is third on my list.

    Wow, I'm impressed with all the awards you've won. Congratulations. I've never been a cruise, either, and have no intention of doing so in the future. I'm a land lubber at heart.

  4. If you can call it a cruise, I did spend 7 months on ship for the first Gulf war. Much of that time we would spend over a month without seeing land.

  5. Thanks so much for the shout out Cheryl and congratulations on all your awards! quite the big collection you have there. It's funny how our favourite color can change over time. Mine was red for years

    I like red, too. You look more like a girl than a Grandma, and I mean that as a big compliment (a youthful feel to your writing as well).

    I think I wouldn't mind a cruise if it docked a lot, and I spent most of the time on land.

    I stopped buying the dark chocolate that I like and instead buy the sweeter one. That way, my kids eat it, and I don't. Love a good, rich dark chocolate.

  7. Love getting to know more about you, Cheryl. I especially like #5!

    And congrats on all your awards. You are most certainly deserving, as you are a wonderful blogging colleague and friend. Cheers!

    Dark chocolate's good for you! It's not indulging if it's doing you a favor, right?

      Where have you been? I haven't seen a blog post from you in what seems like forever. I look forward to reading them. ๐Ÿ™‚
