Blog Award

I received this Appreciated Follower Award from Fi at Fi's Magical Writing Haven. Thank you so much Fi. It's nice to be recognized. I follow quite a bit of blogs and most days I simply don't have enough time to comment. But there are times when I just have to. Maybe it's something in the post that resonates with me on a personal level or I have a couple extra minutes (yeah, it does happen) or sometimes I can't explain it I just have to leave a comment.

This post is dedicated to the followers who comment on my blog the most. Those that grace the comment section with their wit, suggestions and sometimes rants. I appreciate you all, of course, but the rules were that I could only pick five followers.

Here are the rules handed down from Fi:

1. Reveal the top 5 followers
2. Copy and paste the award here
3. Cross fingers followers will spread the love to other deserving bloggers
4. Do what I do best....Have bloggity FUN!!!!!!

So my top 5 appreciated followers are:

1. Kelly Hashway
2. Catherine Stine
3. Brenda
4. Bella
5. Totsymae

I'd like to extend a hearty thank you to all my followers. Thank you for your comments, always.

Have a great day. Read a book and laugh!!!


  1. Wow, Dawn, I'm flattered! Thanks so much. I'll be posting mine asap, and you would be on it, except I don't hink I can boomerang one back... I'll let you know when I post on it, because I will thank you and link back to your blog!

  2. Dawn, it is an honor to comment on your blog! Thank you so much for the award! It's great to know that bloggers appreciate and take notice of comments. To tell you the truth, it's one of the things that keeps me coming back to blogs. I'm tickled pink you've selected me! :)

  3. Hey, Catherine. Ironically, I tried to leave a comment on your blog this morning and couldn't. Boo-hoo. But I wouldn't let that stop me from giving you the award. You've been a great follower. Thanks

    Hey, Bella. You so deserve it. Thanks for all the comments/suggestions. I too find that my followers make me WANT to come and blog/comment back.

  4. Look at me, all sassy and feeling honored. I am so enjoying the this writerly connection and all the strong female writing voices. Seriously, it blows me away to have stumbled upon this network. Thank you kindly for remembering me, much appreciated.

  5. Hey,Brenda. Yeah, I felt like that too when I received the award. It is nice to be recognized. Every follower that comments leaves a mark on the blog- your voice is AWESOME. You crack me up!!! So glad you drop in here.

  6. Thank you, Dawn! I love that we both passed this on from Fi and we chose some of the same people. :)

  7. Hi, Kelly. You know whats funny is sometimes - actually a lot of the time- I go to post a comment on a blog post and you've already beat me to it. I laugh and think the writing world is so big, yet so small at the same time. I guess we just follow a lot of the same blogs. LOL Oh, and you are quite welcome. Thank you for your wonderful comments/suggestions.

  8. Thank you, Dawn. I'm late but I'm here. :-) Thanks for the blog award. But I also have to thank you for writing informative thoughts on writing. You were the first to look at my short story excerpt on my blog and give your assessment.

    I don't much about writing about writing, since I'm just getting in the swing of it, so I couldn't produce what you do here. Much appreciation for the ideas you offer. Hope your writing is going well.

  9. Congratulations!!
    yay for readers and commentors ;)

  10. Thanks, Tosh. Hey better late than never - right.

    Hey, Michelle. Yay all around. Thanks!!!
