Rockin'! Who Me?

Miss Megan, at Velveteen Mind thinks I'm 'Rockin' and has honoured me with a 'Rockin' Blogger' Award - my first blogging award, ever! Thanks Megan, I'll polish it daily and display it proudly in my sidebar (stop it from looking so bare, too, while I figure out what else is supposed to go in there!).

Not sure I'm worthy of the Rockin' Blogger title, unless you count the frequency with which you might find me rockin' in the corner, back and forth, thumb in mouth, waiting for the madness to stop?!

I now have the pleasure of passing this on to other Rockin' Bloggers. Since this blog award was originally titled 'Rockin' Girl Blogger' award, I'll keep in line with the theme and without further ado, I nominate the following 'Girl Bloggers'!:

The Good Woman at My Wee Scottish Blog. I came across this blog and was so struck by the places she'd been. Like me, she was born in Africa, and like me she had a marketing career for a financial services company, and like me she has made Glasgow, Scotland, a temporary home! When I first found her blog I almost cried at her descriptions of places in Africa, places I have been and heard my parents talk about, but was too young to remember - her posts really make me want to go back. She has a beautiful writing style, and her posts about the weather in Scotland are funny, and oh so true!

Next, The Humble Housewife. Deborah's blog is such a treat, but I warn you don't check it out if you're hungry because it will be torture. Deborah delights her readers with wonderful recipes and pictures of her delicious food, and shows us that Irish cooking is about so much more than Corned Beef and Cabbage! Deborah also tolerated multiple questions from me when I was getting this blog up and running in April. Thank you!

Flamenco Mom at Gluten-Free/Casein-Free Mama, and her 'almost foodie' blog. I say 'almost foodie', because hers isn't just a food blog, but one including tales from her family, and their adventures. Flamenco Mom also answered my barrage of blog questions in April- Thank You, too!

My last Rockin' Blogger Award goes to Moodswingingmommy at Am I Going Mad or am I just a Mommy. The title of her blog makes me think she could be joining me in the corner, rockin'! This blog is a great mix of fun stuff, and the more serious posts. I enjoy it and hope that Moodswingingmommy is feeling better these days, after a bout of sickness that seems to be running rampant in cyberspace, and is posting up a storm, soon.

So ladies, it's your turn now to pass on the love! Better hurry though, because this thing is spreading like wildfire!

Congrats, Annie!

Thanks so much for visiting my site. I've added you to my ever expanding list of blogs on my feed reader. Why, why must there be so many great writers out there who I have so little time to read?

Oh, The Joys said...

Holy crap! Congrats Annie and thank you! Not sure I'm deserving, as I've been missing for so long! ;-) Anyways... I'm back getting caught up and will post the competition round up in a little while here. Thanks so much for awarding me! I've never had a blog award yay! I love that I get to send it on too!
