By the way, as I keep mentioning lately, I know that as far as bloggers go I'm really not a good one. I'm inconsistent with my posting (this post is almost a week late! its backdated) and I'm not that active in the blogosphere. So I am always very appreciative of the support I get, through visits and comments and new followers* and also through awards and tags and mentions in blog posts.
I am always, always blown away by that.
As I always I do, I follow a new commentor back to her (or his) blog and I found this!
(please note: all links will open in a new window)
It took me a while to register what I was seeing! I really did think, "woah, that woman looks like me"!
That delightful blog led me to other bloggers that I already adore and they had all mentioned me as part of their weekly 'Link Love' posts...starting with the absolutely befitting her name, Bella from Citizen Rosebud!
Thank you Citizen Rosebud.
I don't know how that 'Link Love' nomination works but thank you so much for your amazing words....and I'm suspecting my recent Twitter fed traffic is because of you...
Thank you also for that brilliant post.
Thank you Beautifully Invisible for your amazing banners and for featuring me!
And your Ode to Tom Ford that got you nominated by...
The Girl Who Stole The Eiffel Tower! Thank you for your beautiful comment and for the nail polish love J
and Congratulations for getting featured too!
Thank you Rimmel Waterproof Mascara for not giving me panda eyes.
MORE PICS & WORDS AFTER JUMP
I have received many blog awards and tags (obviously not for modesty) and I am very grateful for them and humbled by them and I should, like the majority of bloggers showcase these on my homepage but I... just... well... I don't know!
For some weird reason, I get shy about these particular accolades and believe me, I am not the type to put my (eg in my dreams) Pulitzer or Grammy etc in a cupboard.
Hell, if I ever received one of those awards I'd be handing out flyers.
I guess I equate awards with effort and I feel that I don't put enough effort in to blogging to deserve awards.
I'm not quite sure why I don't showcase the awards.
Even though I have written posts to thank the 'awarders' I think I will have a page dedicated to awards I've received because... and this is the only reason I feel bad about not showcasing the awards... I want to acknowledge the gracious, generous people who awarded them to me.
With Summa Cum Laude.
ps. Thank you also Kiran, Leia, Sarah, Tanvi for the wonderful things you have said about me in your posts. This is how that makes me feel.
.... just in case you notice something in these photographs... I am in the middle of a sugar and fructose allergy so bad just looking at an apple makes me pass out. That's right people, I'm allergic to sugar. Worse. Fruit.
Read what the delightful Leia has to say about sugar... it's not a sweet story. I will also provide links and tell you my story, soon.
[*I don't like that word. Can we petition Blogger for a new word to describe blogfans? Hey! How about that?? Blog fans.]
