Bodacious Blogger Award

Sometimes there are people in your life that you appreciate so much, but you forget to thank.

This is Brandy.

She's a mom, a virtual assistant, blogger, tweeter, and an AWESOME friend.

She's always first to comment on tons of my posts, she's always leaving me messages on twitter, facebook, and other places we are both members of. She always shares my posts on stumble upon, retweets my tweets, and would help me with pretty much anything if I asked.

Thank you Brandy, for being such a valuable friend! And thank you also for this award! xoxox

Brandy awarded me today with this Bodacious Blogger award and I felt so honored! It's for bloggers that you are totally addicted to reading! I am very blessed to have Brandy as a friend and thankful that she is addicted to my blog(s)! I don't what I would do without her comments! :) Thank you again Brandy!

The rules for this award are simple:

  • Choose 5 bloggers that you are totally addicted to reading that you feel deserves a little something something extra for all of their hard work, time and dedication.
  • Tag each of those bloggers in a post linking to their most recent blog post.
  • Then, grab the code from the box below and add it to your post so the recipient of the Bodacious Blogger Award can grab it and pass on the love. (or rather right click and save image from my blog)

Then, answer the following questions:

1. What do you love most about blogging?
2. What do you dislike about blogging?
3. What is the one thing you hope to achieve from blogging

WOW. 5 bloggers I am addicted too is sort of hard these days. There are so many wonderful bloggers, but so many of the blogs I was addicted to have... well, lost their spark. I know I feel my OWN blog has lost it's spark though too so I can't really say much! :) I also feel terrible... but I must confess I have been sort of very lazy with the blog reading/commenting lately. Sowwies. I will get back into routine eventually. Thy google reader runneth over.

Ah well, on to the bloggers!

I know Brandy's Blog Happily Blended is the one I visit most often... okay yeah. I am addicted to Brandy Ellen. lol I love her mix of personal and business and always learn so much! Can I give the award back to someone? If so I want to...

Well just in case you can't give awards twice here is 5 more blogs I check at least once a week.
  1. This and That - I love Tonya. She is amazing. She is also a wonderful friend. Her creativity makes me *squee* sometimes while reading her posts. Her blog makes me LOL and makes me happy! So she is certainly #1 recipient of the Bodacious Blogger Award.
  2. Feels Like Home - Tara's posts are creative, informative and really... make you feel like home.
  3. Tip Junkie - Junkie doesn't describe how I feel about this site. It's like being addicted to a drug without as many side effects. I spend HOURS going through her archives finding awesome ideas to save to evernote to do later... you know in my 'spare time.'
  4. Resourceful Mommy - Does Amy really need an introduction? lol Sitewarming info, Disney tips and bits of humor are just a few things you will find on her site. You have to subscribe!
  5. The Online Mom - If you are a mom and your child uses anything electronic, you need to check out The Online Mom. Wondering how young is too young to have a cell phone or how much tv a day is too much? Or how cool is that new video game you've had your eye on for the family? All these tech questions and more can be answered with a mouse click. Oh and Monica is amazing and sweet too! :)
So there are my 5! Give them some love!

Now for the questions:

1. What do you love most about blogging? The personal sharing between bloggy friends. Relating to people like you and never having the feeling like you are alone. There is always someone to listen and understand that has been through the same thing.
2. What do you dislike about blogging? Lately it's the explosion of 'gimme gimme' bloggers that are only out to get ahead (the wrong way), get free stuff and make money. They are giving the 'REAL' bloggers a bad name.
3. What is the one thing you hope to achieve from blogging? I hope to help others with my experiences, make others laugh and have fun doing it.

Thanks for reading!
