Blog Love




I was really pleased and surprised to receive the above award,The Emblem of the Helping Hand award created by Sojourner's Place as a symbol of help, support, and encouragement to up, and coming bloggers and appreciation, for those who mentor those new to the blogosphere. Thank you dear Sharon for passing this award on to me, I love and appreciate you so much. Here are the rules:
Select 10 bloggers: 5 you consider your blogging Helping Hand, then "Pay it Forward" by extending your "Helping Hand" to 5 additional bloggers, in support and encouragement for their efforts.
In passing on the Emblem, each recipient must provide the name of blog, or blog author with a link for others to visit.
Each recipient must show the Emblem, and put the name and link to the blog that has given it to her or him.
Link the Emblem to this post: Helping Hand: Much Obliged and Paying it Forward so that others will know it origin and impetus.
If you have not already done so, show your recipients some love by adding them to your blog roll, Technorati Favorite list, or in any other way to further let them know that their blog voice is important to you and being heard.
Add your name to The Helping Hand meme at my new blog entitled The Emblem of the Helping Hand and don't forget to leave a comment as a permanent record of all Helping Hand recipients.

Wow, Denise - my very first award! Thank you a million times over. Tomorrow morning, I am going to an all-day workshop on the techno-end of blogging. With any luck, by the end of the day, I'll know how to properly pass on the Emblem of the Helping Hand:) If not, I'll know where to come for help. I truly do love you, my friend - with God, we never start out as just strangers. How awesome is that?!?
