Updates & Award Time!

Updates & Award Time!

I can’t believe we are now ending 2009 in just a matter of days. Egad! New Years will be over, it’ll be 2010 and time to start planning for Mardi Gras — anyone coming to visit??? Sooo updates? Yes, hopefully this blog will get bigger and better for 2010. More more more. My new years resolution, to work on my spelling…
The 30th ends my 200 follower contest. 200 followers has led to 450+ followers. Can not believe it, thanks my new guys, ya’ll rock.  And even more rock to the ones who were there from the beginning.
The contest was crazy! I have 287 entries so far! I’m dreading tallying up those entries, it might take me all of 2010 to do that. It also looks like the design contest that I started yesterday might have a great turnout – 50+ entries already.  I feel the love. ♥ ♥ ♥

Kick Ass Blog Awards

Kick Ass Blog Awards

First off, awards can sometimes get out of hand.  But this one is *kewl* and is just starting to make its first rounds.  I actually feel very flattered that I was awarded this! *Taking a bow* I could have awarded this fancy, vulgar award to a number of folks – but then who would they pass it on too???

Awarded by KindleVixen.  This award is making its rounds today! 
The rules of this award are as follows:
Pass it on to 5 blogs you think are kick ass and explain why.  Here are my choices:
  1. Ya_RockStarlett:  Great reviews, great web template and great attitude.  I enjoy reading Starlett’s post, here tweets and her comments.
  2. Ramblings of a Book Bitch:  I like her swirls and silhouette, I like her title, And can you tell I like blogs with attitude???
  3. Pure Imagination: Her New Moon buttons rocked and I actually enjoy her Vlogs! Even though I’ve done one, I’m not too sure about Vlogs.  Sometimes it is good to keep the blogger hidden…lol.  As my granny always said: “Face for radio.” But not of course Lori @ Pure Imagination
  4. Poisoned Rationality: One of my fav reviewers, I like her style and tone and I really enjoy reading her posts.
  5. Ooh…Books: The blogger out there that makes me think.  Cara actually prodded me to post some poetry…I know huh??? She also introduces me to a lot of reading out of my “comfort zone” which I love.
You guys kick ass!
