Hey, wow. Thank you!

I am hereby issuing a heartfelt thank you to Stephanie of Steph in the City for bestowing me with my first blog award. I only started this blog six-and-a-half weeks ago, and of course I immediately emailed some friends begging them to come visit and comment, so that I didn't feel like I was pathetically having a one-sided conversation all alone in the middle of the internets...

And now I'm having a total Sally Field moment. (You like me! You really like me!)

So, now it's my turn to pass the baton. Here are the award rules:
  1. Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  3. Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
  4. Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit This Post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
  5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

So, my winners are...

Andrew Jack Writing: because you should read the free chapters of his book that he's got posted on his blog.

Between Lightning
: writing and motherhood. Check, and check.

Books, Bubs and Writing Blather
: a fellow feather-ruffler (if we do our jobs right, anyway!).

Daily Writing: because I just started clicking on her "older favorites" links, and I think I'm impressed.

Virtual Wordsmith: only three followers on this blog? That ain't right. Go fix it, people.

Okay, I'm starting to feel bad for leaving out some other bloggers I love. But I trust that you all click around on the blogs of the other commenters, and will eventually find each other, right? Right?


  1. Congrats on the award! And I SO totally can relate to what you said about not feeling like you were having your own one-sided conversation in the middle of the internet. Made me laugh, because that's how I felt at first with my blog. :)

  2. It's always nice when we get a few followers and can stop talking to the computer screen! Thanks for the blog links! I'll look forward to checking them out!

  3. Congrats! I just checked out the links. Good stuff.

  4. Hi Carrie, just saw your symbol on my sidebar.
    :-) Thought I'd pop over and say hi.

    Congrats on the award! Those are fun. :-) And for starting your blog! For being young, it looks very successful! :-)

  5. I was actually working on a post, that your award post motivated me to finish, that passes another award on to you. :) Come collect it! (Erm, not sure how to post the link on comments...)

  6. Congratulations! Well deserved indeed. Your blog is quite new and doing so well.

    Also, thank you so much both for the award and for the nice words.

  7. Congrats Carrie, and thank you! I know what you mean about being all alone on the net, and I'm glad someone's recognised your excellent blog :)

    Now who to pass this on too...

  8. It's fun to win awards. Some bloggers are very organized and have them arranged nicely on their blog. Unfortunately, that's not me. You'll win more, I'm sure of that. Thanks for following my blog.

  9. Thank you Carrie! I'm really honored. I've just posted my acceptance on my blog. Thanks again.
