“To have a little recognition, that is very nice, you dig. It is good for the ego, for the psyche.” – Dexter Gordon
I have received an honor from Liyana at LiyanaLand. My blog was included on her list of 100 blogs to receive the One Lovely Blog Award, Let’s be Friends Award, #1 Blogger Award, Flower Bear Tagging Award, You Don’t Say Award, Splash! Award, and last but not least, the 2009 Friendly Blogger Award. There are cute pictures to go along with all of these, but I am lazy and Liyana has them posted for easy viewing.
I don’t deserve this honor because I have never done well with these awards, also known as memes. It’s not that I’m not appreciative. I am. VERY. Acknowledgment from fellow bloggers means a lot to me. However, memes remind me of the old fashioned chain letters and I’m not comfortable passing them along. Therefore, they end up dying on my end and that makes me feel bad (but not bad enough to pass them along). The last one I killed was The Lemonade Stand, and I love lemonade. Now seven more have reached a dead end. So sorry.
Thank you, Liyana. I am in awe of the work that went into your blog. Think about it—100 links! Whew. I am pleased that you thought enough of my blog to include it. I hope you won’t hold it against me that I am a meme party pooper.
I do hope all of you will stop by Liyana’s site and take a look at my beautiful awards and admire her hard work. Plus she has other interesting things going on over there. If there’s anyone who would like to receive one or all of these awards, let me know. I’m happy to oblige when I know they are going somewhere where they are wanted and will be passed along as they should.
Thanks for stopping by.
