And The Winners Are.....

Total WC SO FAR: 8,113
Meaning: 16,887 Words to meet October Goal.....yikes, I better catch up!

Ok-Here are my seven suggestions for this lovely award. Recipients-You are charged with completing certain guidelines once receiving this award.
1) Copy the pretty picture and post it on your blog. This is the fun and easy part.
2) Thank the person that gave it to you and link to their blog. This is the fun and easy part. I did this in the previous post-but THANKS AGAIN HEIDI!!
3) Write 7 things about yourself we don't know. This is the fun and not so easy part.
4) Choose 7 other bloggers you would like to pass the award to. This is not so easy, either!
5) Link to those 7 other bloggers: Easy!
6) Notify your 7 bloggers: Easy!

So, here are my choices.

YaYa's Changing World: First of all, who doesn't love the nickname Yaya?! Absolutely adorable, as adorable as the woman who writes this blog and a dear friend of mine. She is new to the blogosphere, as I am, so her posts are not daily-but they always give you something to chew on, or a great picture with her amazing ability to string words together.

Four Jugs: Hilarious. If you are a mother and a real mother (you know, the ones that don't have it all together all the time) you will surely appreciate this blog. These two ladies, Lucy and Jane that write it together are fantastic. It's an honest, hilarious take on life as a mom.

The Virginia Scribe: I love the way this gal writes. She is a fellow writer and has some great, thought provoking posts as well as some good advice.

Literary Rambles: If you don't read this blog already, definitely check it out. Casey has a way with words that captivates her readers. She's also very kind and giving with her advice and humorous takes on life.

Heather L. Hansen, YA author: I heart Heather Hansen. I love the way she writes. I love how she can hit the nail right on the head with her posts about anything from writing to motherhood. And I love that she reminds me of me when I was..young(er). *ahem*

Chasing The Dream: Melane is new to this blogging business too, I think. I'm pretty sure. Oh-I hope I'm right. At any rate, I just discovered her recently and I love her straightforward approach. She lays it all out there for us to see (words, that is) and stays honest.

InkFever: Another writing blog, but filled to the brim with great advice and humorous anecdotes. I've found myself re-reading a lot of these posts.

Hope you check out these posts. I'm headed back over to Some Mad Hope to check out her other awarded recipients. You should too!! This is a great way to learn about other bloggers you may not know, yet. :)

Have a great week!!
