Today I'm going to focus on the upliftingness that is my middle name, and also gives me a chance to make up new words like upliftingness. There are two phases to my Friday plan:
First, show my appreciation for all of you, but especially a few, because I have an AWARD! to give out.
This award was given to me by Pearl, at Pearl, Why You Little , and it means a lot to me because I think she's wonderful (be sure to check out her blog if you haven't been there), and also because she was my very first follower, (other than my daughter, and I had to pay her, so it doesn't count). It meant a lot to me that a stranger would be even remotely interested in what I had to say. She's generous like that with so many people. If I lived in Minnesota I would probably haunt her house.
Anyway, it's time for me to pass this award on to a few of my favorite blogger-types. I had trouble doing this because I wanted to pass out about twenty of them, but I'm going to stick with the rules.
The bloggers I want to give this award to all make me laugh out loud. Each of them are gifted storytellers, and make me glad I joined this topsy-turvy blog world.
Also, they all deserve far more visitors - go check them out and tell them I said 'hi'.
Anna, at Incoherent Ramblings
Steamy, at Steam Me Up, Kid
Miss Yvonne, at Yo Mama's Blog
M, at Anonymouselasmobranch
Sarah, at Sarah's Blogstastic Adventures
Now, for the "rules" (I'm not good with rules, but I'm passing these on. Do with them what you will...:)
The rules of this award are:
* Copy the badge and put the logo on your blog sidebar or post.
* Nominate at least 5 blogs (can be more) that for you are Uber Amazing!
* Let them know that they have received this Uber Amazing award by commenting on their blog.
* Share the love and link to this post and to the person you received your award from.
Come back and comment here so that your link could be added to the masterlist of awardees.
Part Two of my Friday Upliftingness:
I was at diane's yesterday, and she posted a picture that reminded me of this one of my daughter and her uncle, a long time ago. It still makes me laugh.
