My first blog award!

Hey everyone! I just got my very first blog award, and my Therapeutic Thursday posts were sited as one of the reasons. You have to admit that getting a blog award is wonderful, feel-good therapy for a writer :).

Huge thanks to Joanna St. James for passing the award on to me. If you haven't already, check out her blog. She does fantastic interviews and has insightful writing posts that I know you'll enjoy. Also, thanks to L'Aussie for creating the Fair Dinkum award. The award has a beautiful meaning, 'true blue', but I think L'Aussie says it best and gives a much more thorough explaination. Check out her post on Fair Dinkum here.

And that leaves me to the writers I'd like to pass the award on to...

Kaily Hart: For being a true blue friend, for being the one who urged me to start a blog, and for having a wonderful, honest, and informative blog of her own.

Jennifer Shirk: For her kind support of so many writers, and for her informative, fun, sweet, and sassy writer's blog.

Christine Bell: For her frank and funny honesty about her writing and publication experiences.

Maria Zannini: For her warm, fun, and honest must-read writer's blog, and for reaching out to other writers.

Anne Gallagher: For her informative, warm, and down-to-earth Piedmont Writer's blog.

Thanks everyone and have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Aw, thank you, Rula. You made my day.

  2. Aren't you just the sweetest thing. Thank you so much.

  3. yay congratulations Rula, you deserve it for your dinkumness

  4. Aww, THANKS Rula! I really appreciate it, you gave me the warm fuzzies on this freezing morning.

    So now do I cut and paste it and put in on my next blog post then pass it on? Or display it on the side somewhere? Or both?

  5. You're welcome and worth it everyone!

    To answer your qu, Christine, you can post it in your side bar (mine is further down on the left), AND you're supposed to 'pass it on' as well. Go to the link for L'Aussie's blog on it and she explains it more specifically. I did cut and paste, but she has downloads and I think a couple of award pictures to choose from.

  6. Hey Rula, CONGRATULATIONS!! You totally deserve any recognition you get for your blog and it's content. I just knew you'd enjoy it. It's therapeutic in of itself isn't it?

    Thanks for the award. I've always loved the expression 'true blue' :).

  7. Hey Rula here I was returning your visit to my blog and what do I see? My little award! I am so pleased you received it and have passed it on to lovely people. Fair dinkum, I am so happy about that!

  8. Aw, thanks L'Aussie! And thanks for founding the award. I love the meaning, and it fits your blog too!
