Beautiful Blog or Blogger Award

Receiving an award is always an honour. There have been a number of awards circulating the blogosphere during the past year, each suggesting the recipient’s blog has been providing value to its readership.

Joylene Butler surprised me with the “Beautiful Blogger Award” last week. I was honoured by this award but I admit to a bit of confusion. She called it the “Beautiful Blog Award”, but as you can see, that’s not what it says on the award logo. Joylene’s version seems more appropriate. Most of my readers have never seen me, and those who have would be quick to agree that if the award is based on looks then I really don’t qualify! :) ¬†Anyway, many thanks, Joylene! You’re very sweet and I truly do appreciate the acknowledgement.

I’m told the rules are simple: copy the logo, choose those blogs that you find most beautiful (sometimes that means words alone), and link back to the one who chose you.

So here, in alphabetical order, are the blogs (bloggers) I chose for this award. All are published authors whose blogging words either educate, encourage, or inspire me — sometimes all at once.

  • BERTRAM’S BLOG – for Pat’s openness and honesty about her life and writing.
  • LAURA BEST, AUTHOR – for her pride in and promotion of a Canadian heritage.
  • AUTHOR, JODY HEDLUND - for sharing her faith and publication journey with total transparency .
  • WRITER JENN - Jennifer Hubbard, for her constant encouragement of other writers.
  • RANDOM JOTTINGS – Richard Mabry, for his Godly humility and writing ethics.
  • A HOLY EXPERIENCE – Ann Voskamp, for the oasis of her beautiful words.

    I think as the award circulates it gets changed. I saw an earlier version with a beautiful woman on the logo. But really, what you said is right, it’s the spirit of blogging that we celebrate and appreciate. If we wait to meet each other, well, that wouldn’t be much fun.

    Ooh, a couple more blogs for me to check out! Thanks for the links.

    Also, you totally qualify as a “beautiful blogger”, and you’d better not deny it cuz someone said to me “you’re looking more & more like your mother”(which I took as a compliment). ;)

  4. Laura Best says:

    Thanks so much for the award, Carol. It certainly means a great deal to me coming from you. I love reading your blog!!

  5. Thank you very much for the recognition! I always appreciate your comments, too.

  6. Congrats! That’s a lovely award.

  7. Pat Bertram says:

    Thank you, Carol. And thank you for gracing my blog with your comments.

    I just added you to my blogroll.

  8. You’re welcome Richard, Laura, Jennifer and Pat. You’re talented writers who allow us the privilege of sharing your passions, concerns and knowledge. You deserve awards every day!

    Hi Carol!! Thank you so much. I always appreciate your encouragement and wise words every time that you’re able to swing by and join in the discussion at my blog. Really. I’ve learned so much from you over the past months. So thank you! You are a blessing to me!

    • Thanks, Jody. It must be a “mutual admiration society” thing because I’ve learned a lot from following your blog. :) We’re at different stages in our writing journeys but there is so much benefit from all the sharing within the writing community.

  10. Carol, you are beautiful inside AND out. You deserve this award more than anyone I can think of. Congratulations!!!
    Hugs
