Passing on the Honest Scrap Award

On September 4th, Helen Ginger of Straight From Hel awarded me the Honest Scrap Award. I commented at the time that this award title made me chuckle since I suspected everything on my blog would qualify as scrap. The real meaning of the award, however, is sweet and kind and worthy of sending on to the right folks.

The award rules are simple - pass the award to seven worthy bloggers who post from the heart, and list ten honest things about yourself. Happily, Helen added this: You don’t have to pass it along, unless you want to, but you do have to list 10 honest things about yourself.

On September 8th, I responded to thank Helen and posted the obligatory list about myself, but I reserved the right to pass the award on at a future date. I'm doing that today.

Seven wonderful bloggers who post from the heart:

Janet Lane at Red Plume Press

Maryann Miller at It's Not All Gravy

Kerrie Flanagan at The Writing Bug

Kaye Barley at Meanderings and Muses

Terry Odell at Terry's Place

Lynnette Labelle at Chatterbox Chit Chat

Holly Jahangiri at It's All a Matter of Perspective

Please drop by and visit these bloggers when you have a chance. They deserve a little love.

Thanks so much for the award. It came as a nice surprise today, and I am humbled to be in the company of the other bloggers you honored. I'm glad I have some time to act on it, as I am really swamped with work and rehearsals right now, but can breathe after we open next week. And I do want to take the time to pass the award to deserving bloggers.

Terry Odell said...

Thanks - I appreciate the validation; I also got this award earlier, and have been negligent about passing it on, since it (and the Kreativ Blogger award) arrived as I was heading out of town. I confess I was intimidated by trying to deal with the 'rules' for both of them.

I guess I should get cracking. Thanks again!

Hope you and your readers will continue to pop by. This week, Editing is the theme.

Kaye Barley said...

oh my. Patricia - thank you. Congratulations on receiving this reward, and I appreciate the honor of sharing it with you and these other wonderful bloggers. Some on your list are new to me, but I'm going to check them out right now.

Like Maryann, I think I'll think about this for awhile before passing it along to deserving blogger. I surely do know a bunch of 'em!

thank you again - this is very much appreciated.

I certainly took my time, Maryann. I'm playing blogger award catch up the rest of this week.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Terry and Kaye -- welcome.

I don't think we should treat these awards with any urgency, and I accept that many won't have the time or desire to deal with the process at all. But for those who can, it's a wonderful way to pass on some of the fun and interesting connections we've made along the way.

Lynnette Labelle said...

And, just to think, Patricia, I knew you "when." Now, you have six--at least--blogger awards and more on the way. I'm gonna have to get your autograph before it has to be purchased on eBay for big bucks.

Best Regards, Galen
