I'd Like to Thank the Academy for This Award

Well, this was quite possibly the best way to start off a week. My first blog award! Colin D. Smith, over there, gave it to me and now I get to participate in the sharing of the 7x7 Link Award! I'm super duper excited! Here are the details: any recipients will provide seven links to the blog posts of their choice, according to the categories to follow, and then will choose three lucky bloggers to also have the award. It's never going to end, I can tell. I like to think of it as one of those giant chain letters in blog form.

Anyway, without further ado, I give you my choices. *drum roll*
Thank you.

Most Beautiful
I'm allowing myself this one instance of vanity, so please bear with me. On Being a Writer. I don't necessarily believe the prose of this post is the most "beautiful" but the message is one that I find to be worthy of that title.

Most Helpful
During the horrible weather last spring, I donated my services to some online auctions being run by fellow bloggers to raise money for those affected by the tornadoes. Another Chance for a Portrait and to Help a Whole Town! is my second of such instances of aid. I helped the best way I knew how.

Most Popular
The most popular post (that wasn't a part of the blogfest) is one of the Road Trip Wednesdays from YA Highway. It's actually last week's, RTW: Path Less Traveled, and I feel like it might be one of my favorites simply because of the wonderful, supportive comments I received. I was so amazed and I feel blessed to have such sweet friends in this virtual space.

Most Controversial
I'm not sure if it's controversial, but the topic could lead to some controversy, especially where some parents are concerned. Thank You, LZ Granderson. You're My Hero.

Most Successful
This has got to be the Pay It Forward Blogfest post. I've met so many new people and found tons of new blogs to follow, and it's all thanks to this. I hope that the blogs I linked to are having as much success as I am witnessing for myself.

Most Underrated
I know I'm not that bad of a poet, guys. Sappy Sunday just never got that many page views. Must have been a slow week or something.

Most Prideworthy
It's Official, I Now Know How to Work the Library. Ahhh, I remember that day. It was such a great moment. I was a little embarrassed to ask for help, but I could look back and laugh the next day and even now. Good times...

Now that I've sufficiently plugged myself seven times, let's get down to the awarding business! It's so hard to decide who to give the award to...decisions, decisions.

1) Pro(B)logue I know, I know, I already listed her on the PIF post, but technically she wasn't supposed to be included in that list and was just an honorable mention. This time though, I'm linking to her FOR REAL. And also giving her this lovely 7x7 Link Award. *pats award* Good award. Be nice to SilentPages. She's nice to me.

2) Unbagging the Cats. This wonderful lady is so hilarious, that I can't help but want to see what posts she chooses for each of these categories. Seriously. She's super funny. I found her blog via the PIF fest, so hats off to it!

3) Last but definitely not least, Lindsay Writes. I met this lovely gal through one of the online auctions that I mentioned above and I'm currently working on a portrait for one of her characters. It's slowly but surely coming along to being finished. I haven't had as much time as I anticipated I would to work on it. Lindsay is a young adult author and she's awesome. That's all you really need to know, but if you hop on over to her blog, you're going to see what I mean.

Well, that's all folks! Go check out these posts and these other bloggers, and thanks for stopping by!

Oh yeah, and here's a kitteh.

I love me some Monty Python and the Holy Grail humor. Simply love it.

  1. Thank you Bailey, you didn't let me down--great articles! I'm glad you had fun doing this. :)

  2. I think it's safe to say that I was close to having too much fun. :) And thank you for passing along the award!

  3. 8D *tackleglomps you* *is eaten by the award*

    *muffled* Help meee...

  4. Awaaaard...spit Silent out. NOW. *vomits*
    There. *wipes Silent clean* That's better!

    Oh and just for clarity's sake (my Mom texted me and said, "You have a typo on your blog!" -_- ) "kitteh" is spelled with that 'h' on the end. Just in case anyone was like, "OMG, she spelled kitten wrong!"


  5. Oh and I wasn't the one vomiting. Award was. This is turning into a nice little comment pile-up. I'll go now.

  6. hey there
    I've given you an award if you would like to pop by and collect it when you have time.
    Eve :)
