This morning I was honoured with the KREATIV BLOGGER award by Carol J. Garvin, her blog is called Careann's musings. Though Carol and I both live in British Columbia, Carol's down in the Fraser Valley and I'm in the Central Interior, we've never met. Last year I scrolled through the Federation of BC Writers with the intent of gathering ideas for blog subjects. Needless to say, I liked Careann's Musings immediately. I ended up hanging around and read back several months, and I've been keeping up to date every since. There are just some people you connect with instantly, even if you're not sure why.
Now it's my turn to choose those bloggers I feel are recipients of the Kreativ Blogger Award, bloggers who I feel are creative and add something special to the world of blogging. Man, that's a tougher call to make than you would think. And like Carol, I'm going to take a few hours to think about it. Also, Noelle's coming over to help me make then eat a Strawberry/Nectarine/Banana Trifle for lunch. Grandma's going to help.
I'll be back...
I'm back, (and yes, the Strawberry/Nectarine/Banana Trifle is delicious) and thanks again Carol for nominating me. I'm now going to follow suit and choose bloggers I find particularly creative, without including the 7 things I like. I'm leaving those out because most of them are mushy/feelingly stuff that will make my family blush, then hide their heads in the sand.
I would like to nominate three bloggers:
Pat Bertram - Bertram's Blog. You have only to look at Pat's blog to realize she's an inspiration to the world of writers. Pat questions everything. Her wide-eyed enthusiasm and her deep desire to understand the world of the real and unreal has fascinated me from day one. I think she's covered every aspect of writing there is, only to stop by and see she's discussing yet another subject that would have never occurred to me. Pat loves writing. Her quest to become the best possible writer she can be is contagious. She loves books. She loves authors. She's brave, determined and the way she strings words together to form sentences is amazing. Here's to you, Pat Bertram for venturing into the sometimes scary, but always creative world of creative fiction.
Kathrine Neff Perry - Katt's Komments. Ever heard the saying that God secretly places angels on earth to make our lives better? I know it's supposed to be a secret, so let's keep it that way... but I'm pretty sure Katt Perry is one of those angels. I've chosen Katt for the Kreativ Blogger Award because of her innate ability to leave you feeling better off than you were before you read your blog. Her creativity, her love for life takes shape in her prose, those delicious little antidotes of everyday life that are food for the soul. Here's to you, Katt for making blogland a better because of you.
Dave Ebright - JaxPop. I nominated JaxPop because he's a wild and crazy guy who is creative, funny and head-over-heels in love with his wife. And his grandbabies. Dave is a creative genius. He's also smart enough to let his wife Deb take the excellent photos on his blog. Dave deserves the Kreativ Blogger Award because reading his blog always makes me laugh, and sometimes even cry. Here's to you, Mr. Ebright, aka JaxPop for being such a great blogger.
Here's to all three of you for brightening my life. You're all Kreativ Blogger Award winners for good reason.
