Reason #1 why I blog...

I blog because... from my own home...I can visit you in yours through your blog... or if you don't blog...then through your comments to me. I can see through your words and photos portions of your world, dreams and passions. I get to see small snippets of your culture which also excites me. And it thrills me when you all comment. So Reason #1 that I blog is to get to know you.

Last week I was given my first Blog award The Lemonade Award and I am THRILLED! Thank you, Tugce, for passing it onto me.

Here are my nominees for bloggers that have great attitude and show gratitude (it's just 12).

Musings from Fairlight Farm (My sister- her farm)
South Through Barefoot Pass (My dad- artist, woodcarver, writer-where I get my love of writing)
Life at Number 10 (About renovating, decorating, sewing and other wonderful things.)
White Dove (About memories, reading, family and day to day life)
Mystery Writing is Murder (She was the first writer blog I visited. She is a brilliant writer of mystery- my favorite genre)
It's a Mystery (She is also a brilliant writer)
Whole Latte Life (Another writer- whose words are as smooth as butter -without the cholesterol or fat)
Terri Tiffany Inspirational Writing (This girl shows her faith in her writing. She is also a published writer.)
Writings from Blackberry Hill (This girl is funny. I enjoy reading her blog. You need to read her chicken antics, if you haven't already.)
Tossing it Out (Another writer. I like his blog!)
At the Farm (Ok I love farms. She posts beautiful photos. You need to go see the posts about the white deer that frequents her farm.)
The Writers Porch (She writes, shows photos - just a very pleasant blog)

There are others, but I must stop somewhere. Let me say that if my daughter were still blogging on her frugal blog -she would be number 1. But since she started her new position, she is too busy to blog.

There are two other blogs that I stop in on - Judy Sheldon Walker and Yagmur but they were given the award too by Tugce.

Dear Nominees: If you wish to pass this award onto your favorite bloggers, then do the following:

1. Put the lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude. (List them on your blog)
3. Link the nominees within your post.
4. Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

  1. Teressa, yuo are so kind.

    I love the quote 'I blog therefore I am'.

    Blogging is a kind of addiction which is good for health.

    Keep well.

  2. Blogging opens up a new world, doesn't it? We're all glad that you chose to join in!

    Thanks so much for this award! You're really sweet to pass it on to me.

  3. I love coming to your blog, so am grateful you decided to join the blogging world.

    I am trying to find the time to visit new blogs to give away the award. It seems that our circle has already received it, so it takes time and consideration to find those deserving and wanting who have not. It's hard enough to keep up with you guys.You are such a creative bunch. :-)

  4. Yagmur, Yes you are right. For me blogging is an addiction good for my mental health anyway.

    Elizabeth, Thank you I am glad I joined too. I am going to be a good girl and notify you on your blog of the award.

    Judy, I enjoy your blogging. I am glad I joined too and wish I had done so earlier.

  5. Congrats on receiving your Blog Award! Always fun stopping by here for a visit. You are so right, it's amazing how we get to know one another's worlds, even if a glimpse, through their words and photos. What a wonderful way to travel. Much thanks for passing the Award my way too :)

  6. Well, shucks, here I'm catching up on new posts and here I see this award with my name on the list. You are so kind and I appreciate that you read my blog and have given it such a compliment.

    I will attend to this award here in a few days. I'm still trying to keep up with future posts and reach my 50,000 nano word count.

    Thanks again

  7. Isn't this online world wonderful? I am constantly amazed by the warmth and support. I'm thrilled you got this award and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for passing it along to me.

  9. Congratulations on your award!

  10. Gee, you all are great. I won't need to tell you about my nominating you for the award. And yes, post it, pass it or whatever you want. I think it should be your decision.

    And I mean every word of what I said in spite of your bribes. JUST KIDDING.
