The Thinking Blogger Award - I'm honored

Lillie Ammann at A Writer's Words, An Editor's Eye has awarded Getting it Write for You with the Thinking Blogger Award.

Back in February of this year, Iker Yoldas at The Thinking Blog created this award - or actually meme - as a result of her pondering the meaning of the "meme" in the world of blogging, and what they mean to her. In her thinking, she determined that as far as blogs go, what appeals to her most are those that really make her think. She reminds us that the purpose of linking to blogs is to lead others to quality content. So she created the Thinking Blogger Award and the rules that go with it. She lists five blogs that make her think, and those that receive it pass it along to five that make them think.

Lillie Ammann had this to say about my blog, "Her posts are encouraging, inspiring, and thought-provoking - about writing and about life." I am so honored at your encouraging words and nomination for such a fun award! Thank you so much, Lillie!

I'm tagging:

Betsy Henning at Betsy Henning's Blog because her posts make me think about both the serious issues in life that I might not otherwise think about, as well as the importance of recognizing the simple pleasures in life.

Sylvia at Sylvia's Insight because her positive outlook on life, and huge amounts of "gumption" are nothing less than contagious. Watching her rise to success and all of her life's victories has been a true pleasure.

Harmony Cornwell at Writer in the Making. Her posts are fun, packed full of useful information, and her monthly goals and achievements are an inspiration to me.

Kathy Kherli at Screw You! whose posts always make me long for success! She writes about the issues that impact freelance writers - things you might not give much thought to without some amount of experience.

Carson Brackney at Content Done Better on a whim that maybe he will take a few minutes to answer this one. I tag him because he truly stretches my mind and makes me want to be a deeper thinker and better writer. The title of his blog says it all.

I admire all of you, but the truth is everyone who is on my list of "blogs that I love" is there because, well...I love them. I enjoy reading them every day and as far as I am concerned, you all deserve this award!

Lisa I am touched and flattered - your kind words mean a lot to me. I can't to award my own set of thinking blogger awards.

You've named some great blogs I enjoy and introduced me to a couple of new ones I look forward to reading.

Thanks so much for your kind words!

I would certainly award it back to you (if that wasn't against the rules!).

Thanks again for "thinking" of me.

Dear sweet writing friend Lisa,

Thank you for such an honor. I'm going to fall asleep thinking of who to tag. Oh wait, perhaps I should read the rules before I put too much thought into it.

Read rules, sleep on it, get up with the sun and blog. That's the plan.

Love, Bets

Harmony, Sylvia, and Betsy, You are very welcome and as I said deserving of the acknowledgment! I really do look up to you all!

Lillie, I enjoyed reading the blogs you listed as favorites. That's one thing I have really enjoyed about this activity.

And to the gals I nominated, I can't wait to read your favorites!

I hope you all have wonderful productive weeks!

Your blogging friend,
