I have been given this lovely award from Janice at http://myfamilyjaysactivity.blogspot.com/ Thank you Janice!
Think about how many time we have participated in a hop and went thru the list of other blogs linked up, playing along and because they have answered something similar to our answer or something we had thought the same thought we leave them a comment? Those comments build and build between blog friends and we start following that blog author and building a solid friendship. We get them and they happily get us. I have some great friendships all due to the thanks of a blog-hop I joined, I also know some of our super hostess's stay award free on their blogs but I hope they know I applaud them weekly by their fun, challenging, & creative hop prompts they provide us. The opportunity to get these awards from our fellow bloggers and make us happy that we stick with blogging and participating in their challenges. I try to go down the list of the links and leave comments on blog posts and then I try and return a comment on my own post when left one but gosh it is hard to do both so in making my list of fellow bloggers to present this too I am going to go with those blog buddies who I see not just on my blog leaving hope. inspiration, and encouragement but on others as well..... mind you I do not want to leave anyone out I think every single follower is AMAZING but this award has real rules attached ......so here I go with who I would like to award this too - PLEASE check these awesome bloggers out.
