It's All About Sincerity
If you haven't noticed, my posts this week have all been about what, in my opinion, makes a sincere, and therefore, successful, blogger. On Monday, I talked about actively participating in other blogs by commenting. On Tuesday, I talked about following blogs that we find value in. On Wednesday, I talked about giving priority to blogs we feel a real sense of interaction with. Yesterday, I talked about being positive and respectful in our blog interaction. Today, I want to honor someone who exemplifies the very traits I've discussed with an award. Yes, I made the award up. (Is that legal in Blogville? If not, will someone please come get me out of bloggy jail?) At any rate, there are no rules for this award. You don't have to pass it on to anyone, but I'd love it if you did. You don't have to put it on your blog and link back here, but that would be nice. You don't have to add your name to a list of recipients because I wouldn't have a clue how to create such a list. Okay, there is one rule. If you do choose to pass it on, please do so to someone you find to be sincere with their blog interaction. I could easily give this to just about every single one of you, and I'd like to, really I would. But it would take too long to enter all of your names, and I really need to get back to writing. I have no doubt, though, that if this award gets passed along, you will all eventually receive it. Besides, I'll be giving it to someone different every week. So, without further ado, the first recipient of this prestigous, yet homemade, award is D.L. Strange, author of Ranchgirl Ramblings. She was one of my first followers, and she has, time and time again, demonstrated sincerity with not only her interaction with me and many others, but also with her own posts. Go pay her a visit, especially if you need a good friend. And while you're there, tell her she should post more often. :) Thank you all for being the kind and decent bloggers that make me smile every day! Have a great weekend!
