Blogger Recognition

Tuesday, December 21, 2010
Today’s post is meant to thank the wonderful bloggers who have recognized me, linked to me or gifted me!

As someone who doesn’t normally win anything, I’ve been delighted to have won two blog giveaways in the past month. First, Angela Ackerman, of the terrific writing blog The Bookshelf Muse, co-sponsored a contest with several other bloggers and I was lucky enough to win three signed books by author Tina Ferraro.  If you’re a writer, don’t miss The Bookshelf Muse.  Angela regularly posts informative and unique tips about writing – not an easy thing to do.   I'm looking forward to reading Tina's books over the holidays!

And on Monday, I found out that I’d won a second giveaway, this one from Jess at Falling Leaflets.  Jess is incredibly tuned into the writers’ blogging community, and generously shares this information with her readers.  Her links on the right-hand side of her blog include almost everything you’d need to know to write a manuscript.  Honing your craft, how to write a memorable character, building tension – it’s all there.

Thanks to Angela, Tina and Jess for their generosity!

I’d also like to thank Emma, of the adorable Sunflower Days, for giving me The Versatile Blogger award.  One of the best parts of blogging is the friends I’ve made from all around the world.  Emma lives in Australia, and I love reading about her changing seasons which are the opposite of mine.  She’s new to blogging, but her posts are always cheerful and informative.  And she takes the loveliest photographs.  Check her out!

Finally, for those of you who remember my Orange Chocolate birthday cake, I’m thrilled to say that it was reprinted on the Florida Citrus Growers website. Thanks to Rebecca of Chow and Chatter for submitting the recipe, and to Ina Garten who inspired it!

Congrats on winning some giveaways! I have won a couple myself and it is so much fun when it happens and to get fun new goodies in the mail! I agree with you, it is so much fun to meet so many wonderful people in the blogging world that have similar interests. This ride wouldn't be quite the same without this wonderful community.
