This is going to be a group thank you for awards and tags I haven't posted about because I've been slack. They are in no particular order although the first one is the most recent that I received. I want to thank Ascender Rises Above for passing on the True Blue Blogging Award to me. This award is for ‘blogging friends, for people who stick by you in blogland and make it fun to blog, creating a community of communication and friends.’ I appreciate it so much and Ascender is certainly deserving of that award for she is a very supportive blogging friend. I am glad to have gotten to know her, her visual art, her photography, and the narrative she includes in her posts. Sometimes poetry, sometimes essay, sometimes others words, sometimes her own words, but always spot on. I am afraid that of late I have dropped the ball in terms of tags and awards but rather than wait until I figure a way to pass it on, I'm posting about this and other awards and tags. So many of my blogging friends make it fun for me to be in this community. I have started a blog roll of sorts which includes people whose blogs I read regularly, my attempt at a blog roll for the photo memes I participate in, and I thought I'd link that here.
Some time back Trinity at Rooms of my Heart gave me the Friendship Badge which I have not posted about yet. Trinity is a photohunter and I appreciated her kindness so much. I've had trouble fitting in my regular posts and the photo memes and posts about awards and tags lately which is why I'm so slow acknowledging Trinity's thoughtful award. I also received the Friendship Award from Everything and then Some who is another blogger I've enjoyed getting to know through the photo memes. I appreciate her thinking of me.
Next I want to mention the tags. I appreciate people thinking of me for the tags, and I have done them in the past. However, lately I've been so slow about it I want to go ahead and thank the bloggers who have mentioned me in tags.Thanks to Kat's Krackerbox Weblog for the Seven Random Things about me tag. Next, thanks to Unrelenting Ambiguity for the 7 Things about me Meme. Also, thanks to Sandy Carlson at Writing in Faith for the Seven Things about me. Thank you to Castleruins for thinking of me for the 5 Christmas Wishes tag. I was also mentioned by Gbex for a Christmas tag and I appreciate that. Liza at Moms . . . Check nyo mentioned me for a Christmas Tree Tag which was very thoughtful of her. Dom from Tales From the Cenobite tagged me for the What Christmas Means to Me meme and I appreciated him thinking of me. I was tagged by Work of the Poet for Flavor of the Month and appreciated her thinking of me.
If I don't get around to the tags or pass on the awards, it's not that I don't appreciate my blogger friends for thinking of me. I appreciate it a great deal. I may eventually hit a blogging point where I will go back and participate in some of the tags and I would really like to do better at passing on awards. It's not that there aren't many, many bloggers I've gotten to know that deserve recognition. My problem is so many deserve recognition. I value this community a great deal even when I'm not great at showing it.
