Passing It Forward--The New Blogosphere Award
Crystal at Crystal Clear Proofing developed a new award for as a kind of pass it forward appreciation and I am honored that she chose The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor among the first batch of her honorees. She says, "I created an award commemorating the Fellowship of the Blogosphere. You have had such a positive impact on me and I think so highly of you, you had to be one of the first to receive this, and I wanted it to be from me! I'm very proud of it."
Now my job is to name a few others deserving bloggers.
Ta Da! My choices are:
Tony Eldridge for Marketing Tips for Writers
Karen Cioffi's Writing for Children Blog
Lea Schizas, guru behind the free Muse Online Writers Conference we cosponsor, Writing Jungle blog.
Mayra Calvani's Secret Bookcase Blog. By the way, Maya is the author of an excellent book on writing reviews--something I advise authors do in the interest of passing it forward and of networking and promoting their books.
So, please get on the bandwagon and share, too. Pass around the love and the help to others. Put the badge of honor on your blog, of course! Credit the person who nominated you and keep the fun rolling!
