Long Overdue Blog Awards Post

I am incredibly grateful for all these blog awards from my fellow bloggers.

I was delighted when they popped up in the blog comments while in New York for conferences. I couldn’t blog about them from my Ipad though, which means I am incredibly behind on the blog awards. I love my Ipad but it’s no substitute for a laptop.

I really appreciate all the comments and likes that my blog receives. It’s wonderful to know people are actually reading what I write. 🙂

But these awards are the honey swirled in my tea. I am so thankful that you thought this little blog deserved them. *Blush*

A thousand thank yous for keeping me smiling through my conferences. It was such an energy boost to see the awards.

Because there are several awards, I’m going to mash up the rules ala the fabulous Emmie Mears. I will present each award to 3-7 bloggers, list 5 blog posts I think you should read, and list 10 things you don’t know about me.

Thank you so much to J.C.V. and Sally and IndiaPhare for the One Lovely Blog Award! Receiving it from all three of you means so much! Lovely cubed. 🙂

I pass the One Lovely Blog Award on to these very talented bloggers:

Much gratitude  to J.C.V. for the Genuine Blogger Award!

The Genuine Blogger Award goes to a few bloggers I had the pleasure of meeting at conferences. I can attest to how genuine they are:

Thanks to Emmie Mears for the Kreativ Blogger Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

I’d like to pass  the Kreativ Blogger Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award onto:

Lots of gratitude to Laura and LimebirdBeth for the 7×7 Award! A double award. Wow. Very cool.

I pass the 7×7 Award on to these amazingly talented bloggers:

5 posts I think you should read on my blog:

1o things you don’t know about me:

  1. I read I’ll Take Manhattan when I was ten.
  2. My favorite band when I was seven was The Beatles.
  3. I named my dog before we met.
  4. I hate being the center of attention. The mere thought of ever walking down a wedding aisle makes me break out in a cold sweat.
  5. I hate dusting. So much so that I let it accumulate until I got a sinus infection.
  6. I love the beach but despise sunlight.
  7. My hiccups are bizarre. They have a gaspy sound at the end.
  8. I wish I had my mom’s blue eyes.
  9. I still sleep with a stuffed animal…or ten.
  10. I went to soap opera conventions as a tween.

    • August your blog is the epitome of inspirational. And wickedly kreativ. Thanks so much! I’m excited that this lil blog garnered so much attention from my fellow bloggers. Makes me feel like the past two years of blogging were all worthwhile. : )

  6. Thank you so much for the honor. AND you’ve got this post DONE! (seems like there ought to be an award for that! Good job.)

    Wow! Thanks so much Kourtney. I love these awards and what they stand for. It’s nice to know that our efforts at blogging and networking mean more than just “getting a job done.”

    Thanks again!

  9. We really enjoyed meeting you and Emmie at WDC. We had a blast in NY – hope you did too. Thanks so much for the award! We’ve never had that one before 🙂 ((hugs))

    • WDC was such a great experience! I loved meeting so many talented writers. 🙂 NY was super fun. I got to catch up with old friends and family and crash on their couches. You’re very welcome for the award! Just wanted to show my appreciation of your blog.


  10. Thanks so much for the award! I’m flattered!

    Thank you so much, Kourtney, for the VIP Award! I’m already working on my list of nominees 🙂

    Keep up the great work on your blog!

  12. Laura says:

    Thank you so much 🙂

  13. Laura says:

    Also, Beatles is one of my fav bands, I hate having attention too and did almost rather crawl in a hole than walk down the aisle at my wedding, too many people watching me, but I had my grandpa leading me down, told him not to let me fall!

  14. Congratulations on all these, Kourtney, and thank you so much for sending the Kreative Blogger and Very Inspiring Blogger awards my way. I’ve really enjoyed reading all your posts about your conference adventures and thank you for making it really useful for us as well as you. x

    • Thanks Sally! Each award made me smile and blush. I really enjoy your blog and wanted to pass on recognition for all your hard work. So glad you enjoyed the conference blogs. I know how expensive they are and I want to share as much as I can with fellow writers. 🙂

  15. Thank you so much for this! I feel so grateful and honored.

    Do you go to the beach when it rains then? I’ve always loved swimming in the rain.

    • You are most welcome. 🙂 I look forward to reading more of your blog posts. I do like the beach in the rain, but my favorite time is after 4pm. I still wear sunscreen but the rays are way more bearable. I have also been known to favor a moonlit swim.

  16. limebirdbeth says:

    Wow congratulations! 😀 Can’t say I’ve seen the ‘very inspiring blog’ before, that’s a new one! Keep doing what you do. 🙂

  17. Thanks for including Girls With Pens! It was so nice to meet you in NY.

    Congratulations Kourtney, that’s quite a collection and you deserve each and every one! I’m looking forward to following all the links. Intrigued by #3 in your list of ten unknown things… what is your dog’s name and why is it significant?

    Thank you for think of me for the One Lovely!

    • Thanks Tracey! Aw *blushing*. I was tickled salmon pink to receive so many. Lots of great blogs, I promise. LOL. His name is Emerson Langley. Emerson because of my love for Ralph Waldo Emerson and Transcendentalism. Langley was the last name of a dear friend who lost his battle with cancer far too early. Weirdly, I decided on the breed, the color, the gender, and the name. Even more weirdly, the name fits him perfectly. 🙂

      You are most welcome for the One Lovely and completely deserved it. I adore your blog. 🙂

      • snagglewordz says:

        As the name was a perfect fit, it was obviously meant to be. Fabulous name and a nice remembrance of Langley. ((Hugs))

        • I definitely needed this little guy in my life. 🙂 Thanks–I love his name. It keeps my friend forever in my mind. I’ve been thinking of getting Emerson a brother or sister someday. I already have a name set aside for a girl. LOL. ((Hugs back))
