Award time

Yesterday I received what I call the Carrie Bailey award for my nifty shake it whimsy blog. I think that's great! I am deeply humbled. Make that bumbled. Carrie has traveled the world and has done wondrous things, including living in Chile teaching English, studying Philosophy at Oregon State and is currently revising a YA book that combines the hysteria of information piracy with trials of post-apocalyptic despair. She writes to her heart content!

So what does she do now?
As a new author, Carrie established Peevish Penman to connect with other writers and learn together. Her first publication will be available later this year! If you share her passion for free information and education, don't hesitate to connect with her. (She's not really Peevish)
So yep: she's a very cool gal, her website Peevish Penman is a great platform and excellent read. 

Getting back to this blog award: why did I get this award?
"I simply couldn't miss an opportunity to link to you and tell everyone I believe you're great"

Well what can I say? I couldn't have done it without everyone who surrounds me thus providing me with steamy inspiration and tales, waffly stories and ideas. Kudos to you who know that I mean you. (silent moment here) You who read these words are the true wonders! (Okay moving on, moving on, flick, flick, flick). Now, the cool part is too that I can list 15 blogs I discovered lately to receive this noble One Blog Award award. I went over this carefully ANDDDDD here they are! (drumroll):
