NENO Award

A few weeks ago I was awarded the NENO Award by BC Doan at Reach Beyond Limits. Thanks BC for remembering me and giving me this award which I really appreciate.
This award is given to: "those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging, and to help others seek the reasons why we all love blogging."

BC has some wonderful tips on her blogs about online writing careers, advice on how to make your blog more attractive and also some very nice images. I suggest you pay her blog a visit as it will be worth your while.
Now I would like to nominate the following 5 blogs:
1. Glynis Smy at A Poet’s Word: Glynis is an author and poet who was one of my first followers when I first started blogging and her friendship has been a constant source of support to me. A Poet’s Word is just one of Glynis’s blogs. It is a showcase of her poetry and I love to pop in every now and then to read one of her latest poems.

2. Polly at Angels In My Garden: Polly’s blog is full of great recipes and sweet observations on her outlook on life.

3. Sunflower Ranch: this is a great blog which posts a weekly writer's challenge and a link to a great online store.

4. Lauren at Walk With me on this Journey Called Life: this is a sweet blog and Lauren always helps me during moments when I need to lift my spirits with her positive outlook on life and exuberant Faith.
5. Terry at Lady Liberty Patriot : this blog is full of poems accompanied by pictures and a super-friendly blogger.

The rules that go with this award are as follows:
· Upload the image in your post
· Mention the person that gives you the award with their blog link
· Nominate your blogs of choice with blog owner's name and link
· Leave comment on the recipients' posts to let them know

So I have followed the rules and nominated just 5 blogs, as required. However, I consider all my blogging friends to be worthy of awards even those who have opted for a reward-free blog. Finally, as a personal favour, I am also going to ask any of you that have an interest in art and photography to pop over to my husband’s blog Creative Canvas. He is a bit discouraged at his inability to find people who will comment on his work. So I am doing a bit of free advertising for him (sorry) to hopefully encourage more people to view his art and photos.
Finally I would like to thank all the people who read and comment on my posts and all those others who just stop by to read. Without you all my blog would not be the same.


  1. I enjoy visiting your blog! And I will visit your husband's site..

  2. Thank you for the award, and I value the friendship we have found through blogging.
