I have been lucky enough to receive several blog awards over the past year. While I am honored you think highly enough of my blog to give me an award I suffer from tremendous guilt because I can’t decide which of my favorite blogs to pass it along to! I also have an enormous list of topics to post about, so finding time to follow the directions that come with most awards is challenging.
That doesn’t mean I’m not grateful– quite the opposite. When Chris at Us and Them gave me the The Versatile Blogger award this week, I knew I needed to find a way to pass on the love even if I don’t have the time to follow through with each award. That’s why I’m starting a new series, “Pass the Lemonade”! I probably won’t post it every week, but once in awhile you’ll get a glimpse into my blogroll. I’ll highlight a favorite blog each time– the really special ones. The ones that when they pop up in Google Reader I ignore all other blogs until I’ve read that post. The ones that make me think: “I wish I lived closer to ______; we’d SO be friends in real life!” Even ones where perhaps my thoughts are the exact opposite of that person, but I enjoy the discussions or ideas they present. The blogs that make me smile, laugh, and even cry– those are the ones I’ll be highlighting each time.
There are no rules for the receiver, no need to pass it along if you don’t want… just pure appreciation from me for making my life a little better with your insights and thoughts.
Just for the fun of it, I created this fancy lil’ button to add to your blog if you’ve been featured. No strings attached– no worries if you don’t want to add it. And no worries if you do! You can highlight a blog on your blog… or not. Just like summer, Pass the Lemonade is a casual affair.
or, if you pass it along:
