Belated Award Passes

We are back from Galica -- got in late, late Saturday night -- and now I'm playing "catch up". Just after arrival in Galicia I received two nice awards from Michele Helene at A Wanderer in Paris . My apologies for dragging my heels on passing them on, but I didn't spend a lot of time on the Internet this trip.

Here are the awards:

The 1st Award (Liebster Blog) is for someone who has less than 200 followers. This award has five rules:

1. Show your appreciation to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them. That's Michele Helene (see link above). 
2. Reveal five picks more pics, let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. (Done; see below.)
3. Post the award on your blog. (Done; see above.)
4. Bask in the camaraderie of the most supportive people on the internet. (So true. Bloggers ARE supportive.)

5. Have bloggity fun and spread the love. (Siempre!)

The Second Blog Award (One Lovely Blog Award) has only two rules.
1. Thank and link to the person who nominates you: Michelle Helene, merci and gracias! (See link above.)
2. Pass this Award along to 15 recently discovered blogs and let them know about it! (Done. See below.)  

The Liebster Blog Award goes to:

1.  J. A. Bennett at A Book, A Girl, A Journey 
2.  Jess at Write. Skate. Dream
3.  Gail Shepherd at Paradoxy
4.  M. G. Higgins at M. G. Higgins
5.  Máire Rua at Máire Rua Writes

The One Lovely Blog Award goes to these recently discovered sites:
1.  First and foremost is Rachael Harrie's blog, Rach Writes, a super blog designed to help other bloggers discover each other. It's through her blog I've discovered so many of the sites below.
3.   Ali Cross
4.   Eve.E at Clueless Eve
10. Kelley at Between the Bookends
11.  Lauren Boyd at My Path to Publication
14.  Sheril Swift   
15. Jennifer Burke at Jen's Bookshelf

And there you have it. These are all good sites to visit, do go and enjoy the reads and information these bloggers share.

Meanwhile, I am eagerly looking forward to Rachael's third challenge which is supposed to be posted sometime today.

Good choices for the awards.

Thanks so much for the award! I'm so honored!

Congrats on the awards and thanks for giving them to cool people who I can now check out!

AND, I just finished The Fourth Wish and loved it! Honestly, I got a whole Edward Eager vibe from it, and was intrigued from the start. I HAD to know what was going to happen. And it's so great that I now know more about Mrs. Seraphina--I've been seeing her name attached to your profile forever :) She's a seriously cool and gifted lady, just like you! Thanks again for sending it my way :)

Sheri L. Swift, Author said...
