I’m Honored!

Not a big fan of Elmo, but the napkin seemed  appropriate for the occasion.

Although my posts over the past few weeks suggest otherwise, I am eager to stop the self-promotion and get back to the business of writing about writing.

And so help me, I will do so beginning this weekend – even if it kills me.

But I would be remiss if I didn’t first thank a few fellow online scribes who presented me with blogging awards over the past couple of weeks.

I’m feelin’ the love.

The lovely Khaula Mazhar and Amanda Leigh each nominated me for the Lovely Blogger Award! (Even though Khaula presented it in a bwa-ha-ha-I-hope-you-enjoy-all-the-work-I-just-gave-you kinda way, I still find her lovely.)

I’m feelin’ the Leibster, too.

Raging Gail nominated me for a Leibster Award, which was both a lovely and leibster-y thing to do!

And the wonderful Susan Rocan at mywithershins tagged me with some fun questions.

That is not the first time Susan questioned me by the way; she also just interviewed me on her blog! Do take a look if you wish. She’s a great interviewer. She is also a kind and thoughtful person – even though she does not share my appreciation for goats. Nobody’s perfect, I suppose.

Adorable.

Each of the above honors requires me to answer questions and nominate other bloggers. To give each award the attention it deserves, I’m going take care of them one at a time over the next couple of months. So please don’t interpret my delayed followup as a sign of ingratitude. Believe me, I’m appreciative. Thank you all!

  1. I have to admit, the picture of the goat is rather cute. It’s not that I DON’T like them, I am just a little careful around them, whenever I have occasion to get within butting distance! 🙂

  2. Congrats 🙂 I love goats, used to have a couple when I was a kid, they are so great. They are excellent garbage recyclers and garden fertilizers. They can provide hours of entertainment if you like watching skinny animals eat non-stop.

  3. Well done you. Just read the interview, all that animal talk has reminded me of something that I must do soon…I think you know what it is.

    Also, I have some significant childhood goat memories that I shall write about at some point (bet you can’t wait!).

  4. Wow, lots of goat comments. Who knew? I will congratulate you, however, on your getting-too-many-accolades-to-have-time-for-anything-else situation. Nice!

  5. Congratulations on your book! I can’t wait to read it! Teachers and parents are always looking for new, well-written books that tie to holidays, so I’m sure yours will find a welcoming audience! Best wishes! 🙂

  6. Congratulations Heylook! My favorite goat quote involves the first line in a Robert Benchley essay:
    “If we had a goat,” I said to Mr. MacGregor, “it would solve all our problems.”
