In December 2011 I was nominated (by K.S. Brooks), and awarded (by JD Mader), a Versatile Blogger Award. Coming a few hours after the first (a 5*) review for my 'The 365-Day Writer's Block Workbook' they certainly made my day.
Then late February 2012 Cindy Vaskova bestowed a 'Liebster Blog Award' on myself and four other bloggers: Nerine Dorman, Icy Sedgwick, Sonya Clark and Emma Newman. One of my duties is to 1. Link back to Cindy (easy). 2. Nominate five others (not quite so easy but doable). 3. Post the award on my blog (done). 4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people in the blogosphere (easy, I do that already :)). 5. Have fun and spread the karma! (peasy). Thank you, Cindy.
