I just love, love, LOVE awards! Who doesn't, right? I am a new blogger and I am still learning about blogging and the whole bloggosphere. I have a couple of awards and I value them a lot. They remind me that sometimes I get it right. LOL. This award is very personal to me. And the way Blue Cotton Mom from Blue Cotton Candy put it "... making friends is hard work. It means risking rejection by extending friendliness. We do that with our comments. We can either give cruise-through comments or really sit down and have a dialogue". I do read a lot of posts and I do try to comment a lot as well. Reading other people's blogs is getting to know those people and their personalities. I've made "blogger" friends that I keep an eye on and check on once in a while( by following their blogs) to see what they are up to. Good commenting is taking time and reading a post, getting into the topic of it and speaking up your mind. It is not just plain "great", "i like it", etc. Every time you see a good comment (you know the one I am talking about) you really, really appreciate it. And yes, you want to go back to that blogger and get to know him/her better. Here are the people who take pride in their comments and they need to be rewarded: Tammy @One Pink Fish Linda @My Trendy Tykes Nicole @Tired, Need Sleep Georgine @Life on James Street Christine @Propeller Head Mom - A Geeky Mommy Blogger parentingBYdummies @parenting BY dummies And if I could I would give this award back to the person who granted me with it. Silly... But Blue Cotton Mom practices what she preaches. These are the rules of getting/giving the reward: 1) Put the logo on your blog/post. 2) Nominate bloggers who take pride in commenting. 3) Be sure to link to your nominees within your post. 4) Let them know that they have been nominated by commenting on their blog. 5) Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award. Done. Thank you all for the wonderful impact you leave in the blogosphere. Keep it up!
