Really Important Stuff! An Award! Announcements!!

First, the winners of Love as a Way of Life are Jen and Jenn! Jenn didn't leave a comment but she sent me a note via the contact form. She's an old friend and new to blogging so I'm showing her some grace. :) Ladies, please email me your addresses so I can mail you your books!

Annonymous Comments Now Allowed
J. Kaye featured my post on 5 Tips for Being a Friendly Blogger on her blog today and I learned a major unfriendly thing I've been doing! I block annonymous comments. So I am allowing them now, but if anyone is rude to another commenter or to me your comment is going! This is a place of friendship. ;)

My First Interview
I did an interview about the 40 Day Fast with Charley of Cross Driven Radio. (go to his website to find the link) It will air tomorrow at 2 p.m. Eastern time. Well, I'm sharing air space with the famous Brody Harper, so my part will start at will be available in podcast form later, so if your computer blocks radio, you can hopefully hear it later. You know, if you're interested. :)

Mark Your Calenders
August 15th is the first review day for the LOST challenge. I look forward to hearing about your progress and hope to have a prize ready, too. So get reading!

August 25th-29th is going to be Daughters of Boston week around here as we celebrate the follow-up to A Passion Most Pure. There will be giveaways and a new interview with Julie. Yay!

September 15th-19th I'm going to host something brand new...Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Details to come, but I will need everyone's help in getting the word out.

I Got an Award!
TWO awesome bloggers awarded me with this new award! I'm so thrilled because I love them both. Visit their blogs now! Tara's View of the World and Booking Mama.
I'm supposed to nominate seven more, and so here goes...

Welcome to Married Life. Okay get this. Krista stumbled onto my blog and then we found out we had a connection! She knows my sister from having spent time at Portantorchas! Amazing! Krista doesn't post multiple times daily like myself, which means she only shares if it's really important. :) Her blog is always fun to read.

This is Kristin Kristin inspires me. We work together on Inspired to Action and she seems like a very genuinely nice person. Her blog is about her life and motherhood.

5 Minutes for Books This blog is brand new and inspired from the site 5 Minutes for Mom. I love that they are doing it and they will be starting a new feature for us feature loving book bloggers called What's On Your Nightstand next week.

Camy's Loft Camy is the author of Sushi for One?, Only Uni, and the forthcoming Single Sashimi. She posts regularly and I always love the pictures of her dog. She's friendly and she answers my tweets. She rocks!

Vader's Mom Ok, I totally love the pictures of Stacy's dog, Vader, too. We share in common a deep love for all things Buffy. Need I say more? Oh and she's a friendly blogger!

The Law, Books, and Life Cara Putnam is a newly published Christian author who always has interesting things to share about the law, books, and life! :)

Fashionista Piranha Suzi is a LT buddy who writes great reviews. And your books are coming, I promise!

Once an award is received, the rules are:

1. Put the logo on your blog.

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.

4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.

I love Vader, too. He is a cutie.

Kristin said...

Thank you you are so nice!

Congratulations on the award!!! :-p

I enjoyed your article on "5 Tips for Being A Friendly Blogger".. I think having the option to leave an anonymous comment is great but I wouldn't have considered you any less of a friendly blogger for not having it.

J. Kaye Oldner said...

I just love the 5 Tips for Being a Friendly Blogger. Thank you again for posting it!
