World Bloggers Award Passing Of The Torch

Bloggers Award – Really?

I was surprised and honored by bloggers Sonia of Logallot and Brenda of PibblesNMe to be one of the winners of the Sisterhood of the World Blogs Award. From two awesome bloggers I read all the time and just love. But with the honor comes responsibilities:

blogger award

They include:

  1. Recipients need to thank the giver
  2. Post 7 things about yourself
  3. Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers of your choice and let them know they’ve been nominated
  4. Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog

7 Random things about me you may not know are:

  1. I pitched a no hitter in softball.  But first I had walked a bunch of batters and wanted to quit. My manager made me continue in tears – in the end I did pitch a no hitter and we won the game. I was in my early teens.
  2. I was a member of the Bobby Orr Fan Club – I was a huge Boston Bruins fan as a child and teenager. I remember getting monthly updates in the mail on Bobby Orr and the Fan Club Card I had. I used to save all the newspaper clippings of the games and magazines that I could find on them. I even wanted to play hockey but the equipment cost too much so my parents would not let me. Bobby Orr
  3. I started working at a newspaper at age 14. Even earlier if you count delivering it. It was a weekly shopper and it still exists today. I started there typing classified ads on an old typewriter.
  4. I’ve always loved walking – I used to walk with my grandfather many nights after dinner and sometimes stopped at the candy store when it cost 1 cent or 5 cents for candy.
  5. I love full moons – they always makes me feel like we aren’t that far from it when I view the big moon.full moon
  6. I’ve always loved the beauty of butterflies. Wouldn’t it be nice sometimes to just fly away? This butterfly image is one that I captured in Arizona at an exhibit of butterflies.butterfly
  7. My favorite flower is a peony – I think because it only blooms for a short period of time. It’s a reminder of how short life is. They also smell so nice!a peony flower


Now how do I choose 7 bloggers to pass on this award to? I could list many but I’ve decided to go with some less known bloggers to my readers. These are bloggers I have recently discovered and really like. I hope you will enjoy their blogs too.

  1. Richly Middle Class – by Cynthia Tolbert Wilson – I found this one via Twitter, where else right? And I really enjoy their posts about many different things from work/life balance to recipes to parenthood, lifestyles and giveaways. Oh yes, I did win a Starbucks gift card there too.
  2. Write Right Words – by Erin Feldman  – I actually came across Erin through Triberr. She has a variety of topics mostly on writing but some on other facets of life. Erin is a writing consultant and she sure can write.
  3. Sociable Boost by Morgan Barnhart  – I’m not sure how I came across Morgan but she is truly inspiring and full of energy. I really enjoyed her videos and feel like she is definitely down to earth.  She blogs about social media.
  4. Grow Old With Grace – by Pat. I found this blog from blogger and really enjoy her writing about this and that. Pat brings us face-to-face with aging as she relates her experiences, her memories, advice for surviving the aging process…with Grace. This is a place for humor, sharing, and learning as well as some entertaining meanderings of her thoughts.
  5. Kates Heart and Soul – by Kate Larson Rodgers. I recently found Kate from Twitter and loved the look of her new blog to be about the slice of a sweet life. She has another recipe blog as well. I just fell in love with the look of her blog and it felt so inviting there. She is very energetic and creative as you will see from her blogs.
  6. Templete Fairie – By Sarah Payne. I came across this blog and just loved the images and how she writes. She shares her  rants and raves, goofy cartoons, and nothing but the highest quality blog templates on her blogger blog.
  7. Learn It 2 Earn It – Lynn Brown – I have been reading Lynn’s informative blog for a while. Lynn offers all kinds of tips on blogging and marketing is the “Queen” of Linked In. She is always upbeat and inspiring.

Now I’d love to know something about you that I may not know and to hear about new bloggers you may have found recently.

  • I love this post, Lisa! You are beautiful like a peony. I’m so glad I came over to I2T to check out your posts. Now I have several new bloggers to check out. Of those in your list, I only know the talented Erin Feldman. I’ve got my weekend reading cut out for me.

    I’m also delighted to learn more about you. So cool that you were a member of the Bobby Orr fan club. I already knew about you working at the newspaper since you were 14 and your love of peonies. It’s so wonderful that there’s always new things to learn about one another. xo

    • Thanks Samantha 🙂 It’s an oldie but goodie. Did you follow any sports teams Samantha?
      Lisa recently posted..eBook Rough and High Waves to CompletionMy Profile

      • I know this is an old one, but I came upon it through the backend of my FWD site. Someone had clicked through to this post from one of my old posts. Pretty cool to find it that way.

        No, I didn’t really follow sports. I was a (paid) company ballet dancer and later on a competitive athlete in mini-triathlons and fitness competitions. So, while I’m very athletic, I didn’t follow any sports as a kid or teen and, actually, don’t follow any sports with real zeal today. It’s not that I don’t like them, but I guess I’d rather be outside doing something active rather than watch others do it. Know what I mean?

  • Hi Lisa,

    Congratulations! You are such an inspiration! You deserve this award and many more. I am so excited that I’ve had the opportunity to learn and grow from you and you wonderful site. Looking forward to reading more and congratulating you and many more awards!

  • Hi Lisa,

    congrats for the award! It’s interesting that you started work so young. It does seem fun to work for a newspaper, lots of writing and stories…my favorite environment.

  • Congratulations, Lisa! Well earned awards, and it’s nice to learn a little more about you.

  • Wow, congrats, Lisa! That is quite an honor. 🙂

    I love full moons, too! I walked out to my car this morning and the full moon greeted me! 🙂 It was lovely!

    SO cool that you were typing up classified ads for the newspaper on a typewriter! I LOVE typewriters, I have an old one in the living room and I just adore it.

    And THANK YOU for including me! It’s such an honor to be listed with some other fabulous people! You’re so gracious and I love to read your blogs. I’m really glad we’ve connected. 🙂

    • Thanks Morgan. Even nicer to see the full moon in the a.m. Imagine a typewriter? I loved your blog and especially your video. I hope to work more on that soon, my laptop was down due to hard drive issue. And my phone YouTube goes into my retail account – have to stop in one day and find out how to change between different YouTube accounts on my Droid which I live on 🙂 I’m glad we connected too.

  • Congratulations Lisa! You’re very deserving of this award and these ladies thought so too.

    I loved learning more about you. You are some sports fan aren’t you! A no hitter, crying or not that would have been cool. I can’t believe you started working at that young age either. I bet that was a cool job.

    I only recognize one blogger on your list so I’ll have to be sure and check out the rest. I have no doubt they’re awesome as well.

    Great post and best to you my friend.

    • Thanks Adrienne. I was a sports fan, I still like some but not as much as when I was younger. I’m glad you only recognized one – I wanted to share some bloggers that I really like that most would not have known about 🙂 Have a wonderful Friday.

  • Yay! Congrats Lisa! Awesome awards for an Awesome Sista blogger. Love the shares. Such an insight to you. Shine on with your sweetness~ Kate

  • Wow… Congratulations Lisa 🙂 Honestly I knew about this post after seeing your name on Brenda’s and Sonia’s place 😀 LOL… You deserve these awards as a great friend and awesome blogger.

    Well… Well… You had to share ’em too, no? Glad to know more about you dear. #3 and #4 were known by me and others, NO… I knew you are really fond of nature but didn’t know about ’em specifically.

    I love that Peony you shared here 🙂 Lovely colors. isn’t it? Ha ha… Full moon is what I was always waiting for when I was a kid to talk with 😉 Well, every full moon day is a religious day for us and we have a holiday each month…

    Thanks foe sharing about you and love images 🙂

  • Congrats on the award Lisa! Both of your blogs are very deserving! I definitely LOVE your #5 – #7. Do you think I’m partial to Nature? 🙂 That’s awesome on your no hitter. Can you think back at it and remember exactly how you felt? How exhilarating? Oh my! You’re truly an amazing whom I’m glad I’m getting the chance to know. Rock on gf!
