Weekend Mishmash: The B-I-N-G-O Beautiful Blog Award

On Friday morning, Weronika Janczuk – fellow blogger and beta reader extraordinaire – awarded me the “B-I-N-G-O” Beautiful Blog Award, which means that she believes my blog is...

B: Beautiful
I: Informative
N: Neighborly
G: Gorgeous
O: Outstanding

Weronika kindly included me in a group comprised of four other bloggers – all of whom maintain blogs that are way more professional and informative than mine, so believe me when I say that I’m stunned, humbled, and ever-so-grateful for this award. So, thanks, Weronika!

And, without further ado, here are the rules:

Please look carefully at as many blogs as you can to find the top FIVE blogs that YOU think also exemplify these standards and pass it along to them. Please don’t break this chain of FIVE! If you are someone who doesn’t want awards or doesn’t pass them on, please tell the person who is giving it so they can share it with someone who would want it. Thank you. Also, link your award to the person who gave it to you so when people link on the person’s name or blog name, it will take them there to see that person’s BINGO-RIFFIC BLOG.

Now, I could easily bestow the B-I-N-G-O award upon a ton of worthy blogs, but since I can only pick five, I’d like to pass it along to the following:


The Word Wire

Cinnamon & Spice

Thinking Out Loud

Miss Snark’s First Victim

Thanks again, Weronika!

looks like I've got a few more blogs to visit :)

Heck yeah, Chris! There are so many amazing blogs out there - yours, of course, being one of them. I would've passed this award to you again, but I was trying to spread the wealth, so to speak. So, I tried to find five more worthy blogs. Enjoy!

Congrats on this award.
I’m also nominating you for a different award and you have to claim it over at my blog !

Okay, with that out of the way, I have to say, I’m really worried about you—Please tell me you’re not sweating this whole critique thing. Remember, you are entitled to a life outside of the whole writing/blog world. Critiques can wait! Go spend time with your Sweatie.

Okay, I know I spelled Sweetie wrong...

Laura Martone said...

Thanks, B! Oh, no, another award?! You better watch it - all this praise is going to go to my head!

And as for my crazy little life... don't worry about me. I always bite off more than I can chew - and I always get through it... eventually. I'm really enjoying your book, B, so I don't want you, for a minute, to think that it's been a chore to read. I'm just about finished - and then I'll prepare my comments for you. I'm just juggling so much at the moment that, as much as I want to, I haven't been able to focus exclusively on your book. If only!

Incidentally, I'm trying hard to find some balance... I tend to be a workaholic, which cuts into my "sweetie" time. But just tonight, we flew the coop and headed to a friend's house for dinner. And we both had a really good time... though I missed my kitty.

P.S. Shhh... I won't tell anyone you spelled "sweetie" wrong! (wink, wink)
