Welcome to the place where I rant, rave and discuss books, writing, the town of Cobourg Ontario and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Passing around the Love

Oooh! I got an award! Yay me! Thanks Tara!

So here’s the dealio with the award:

The rules of the award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!

Now I will pass it along to some more blog friends with less than 200 followers, but well on their way to blog history! I’d like to pass it back to Tara, because really, I love her blog. But thems the breaks!

#1 -My very first pick is Diego over at Demolishing the Block -he’s witty sharp and real. What more could you ask for in a blogger?

#2 –How Beverly Diehl doesn’t have more followers is completely beyond me. The only explanation I can come up with is people haven’t been exposed to her site. Once you’ve been there, you’ll jump to the follow button. Writing in Flow

#3 – Really, how can you not like a blog called The Leaky Pencil? Chris is a ton of fun, and insightful. Follow him, trust me.

#4 – Mark gets props for simply putting up my first view of the new batman trailer on his site. I’m so excited for it! Plus he’s fun! Everyone deserves a little time at the Madhouse.

#5 – Though she’s probably the least likely to follow this contest, check out Lisa’s blog on Doin’ it For Me. She’s got a great voice and some hilarious posts, you’ll be rushing to her site to cheer on her personal successes.

There are so many more blogs I want to rant and rave about. Some with over 200 followers who didn't qualify for this award. :(


  1. Nina, how every sweet! Thank you.

    As far as followers, they're growing. My blog is still a baby, and I'm very happy with how many people actually read & leave comments (like you, dear.) Mwah!

  2. Congratulations on the award!

    I'll have to check out the blogs you mentioned. I already follow Beverly but the others I don't know. :)

  3. Thanks very much Nina! I really appreciate it, and I'm looking forward to picking my "five"

  4. Awesome Nina, I'm so happy you thought of my little blog :D thank you! I'll be sure to spread the love.

  5. @Bev - right back at ya babe!

    @Peggy - Thank you:)

    @Diego - I'm always thinking of you and your "little blog" Diego :P

    @Chris - You're very welcome, I'm looking forward to seeing your five.

    @Tara - What can I say? You rock girl!
