More Blog Love--Thank You!

I have been so honored to be the lucky recipient of more blogging awards!

First, many thanks to Wendy of Caribou's Mom who gave me the Kreativ Blogger Award. Wendy is an important pillar of the book blogging community (in my opinion!) and I'm honored she thought of me. She said this: "Amy at My Friend Amy for her empathy. Amy just exudes empathy for others on her blog. I could have also awarded her for generosity of spirit. I love that she remains open to other people’s thoughts and differences and really tries to understand others." Since I already did the exercise for this award, I am just going to humbly say thank you!

Next, Vivian Zabel gave me the Premio Dardos or Darts Prize. I'm copying the information straight from Vivian's blog:
The Prémio Dardos is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

Wow!!! I feel so honored. I am meant to pass this one to 15 bloggers so here goes:

Caribou's Mom
The Book Lady's Blog
Bookish Ruth
S.Krishna's Books
Savvy Verse and Wit (I love how Serena keeps a love of poetry alive)
Booking Mama
She Is Too Fond of Books
A Novel Menagerie
Devourer of Books
The 3 R's blog (Florinda)
In Spring it is the Dawn
Literary Feline
Beth Kephart

All of these blogs I chose because they add something a little special and unique to my blog reading. Their passion for literacy and love of the written word is clear, they have integrity, infectious enthusiasm, great heart, they are courteous around the blogosphere, and I am always delighted to read their blogs. It's funny, I thought, wow I get to choose 15! But it's still not enough!!!! The bloggers above really embody the spirit of that award, though, I think.

Finally, Michele of A Reader's Respite gave me the following award which puzzles me just a little. It's for "the coolest blog I ever know" huh?

Anyway, Michele gave it to me "Because of Amy's dedication to helping the publishing world." Thanks Michele!

I'd like to pass this one to:
Trish of Hey Lady! Because Trish embodies cool.
Jen of Daily Mish Mash She's on a cruise right now, but you already know she's a must read for me.
Presenting Lenore. Who still seems so mysterious to me and has introduced me to all kinds of cool YA books.
Alea of Pop Culture Junkie Seriously one of the nicest people ever.

I hope I have managed to give a lot of my favorite bloggers an award, but I know I still missed some. I'm exhausted just from writing this post and the emotional agony of making decisions. I hope you enjoy your awards, even if it's the millionth time you received it.

Congratulations, Amy! You do such a great job, and put so much time, energy, thought, creativity, and passion into this process. You definitely deserve the recognition!

Florinda said...

Thanks so much for selecting my blog as one of your 15, Amy, and congratulations on all of your awards!

Michele said...

I have been waiting and waiting for someone (anyone!) to remark on the grammar on the Butterfly Award as it made it's way through blogland! You are the first I've seen, ha ha.

I don't pretend to create these awards, I just dole 'em out!

Congratulations, Amy! You deserve all those accolades!

And, thank you for passing the Prémio Dardos to me! I've been a slacker at posting these and passing them along (so much for all the kind things you said about me and my blog! ... maybe the "good intentions but poor follow through" award will be next for me!). Mucho gracias!

Serena said...

Thank you for the award. You cannot imagine how flattered I am! I will be passing this along tomorrow. Would it be bad to pass it back to you? LOL

Lenore Appelhans said...

My nickname among my friends is "international woman of mystery".


Amy said...

Wow you guys thanks for the extra bloggy love!

Lenore...I'm not surprised. :)

Thanks so much for the blog award! It is so nice to come home to something so fun (it definitely beats all the laundry I'm trying to catch up on). :)

Literary Feline said...

Thank you so much, Amy! You definitely are deserving of these awards yourself!
