Virtual Closet of Bloggers Awards – Exploded!

Blogging AwardsWhat is so special about them?

In order of the least importance to the most importance reasons why the Blogging awards are special then:

The Award itself – A physical acknowledgement! But more important than this – The thoughtfulness of the blogger nominating you – And most important of all – The Blogger him/herself!

Top of the list, numero ono, head honcho, main man, king of the hill, queen of all and so forth and so on. The Big Boy is The Bloggers Themselves.

That’s what makes the awards so special. They are a special breed of people, a good kind of people and the Blogging Award is a unique and special way of acknowledging this to one another.


Many of us have limited time at our disposal so the time it can take to respond to a nomination can be daunting. Each blogger deals with this in their own way, but never doubt for a moment that there is a sense of gratification in being thought of when it is received.

I have been amazingly fortunate to have a multitude of bloggers honor me with blogging award nominations, gifts, and tags and exceedingly negligent in responding. Only a handful have I acknowledged and today I will do my best to set the record straight in this.

Anyhow, Jake Sprinter at  sorta’ called me out a while back when he gave me two more excellent awards and reminded me that he had done so more than two months previous (hanging head here). And shortly after that Tina at also reminded me of same (Sorry Tina). Also Sharla, Barb, Alastair, Nizy, and Della who have been so very generous with the multiples of nominations given to me.

In addition today I received several more nominations and was honored with a tag from Esenga’s Voice for a virtual dinner party. The Sensual Bloggers Award from  Christina, and The Prolific Blogger Award from Clanmother,  and the Wonderful Team Member Readership  Award from Nightlake So what can I say accept be true to oneself. It is an honor to receive a nomination.

Bloggers are wonderful and I am guilty of doing (blogging) the things I’d rather do than accepting the responsibility that goes with blogger nominations. Yes I am guilty!

Each one of the nominations, awards and tags that I have received I am honored and extremely flattered to have been thought of for these nominations and very grateful as well, please consider this a (for some of you) an extremely belated thank you!

In the coming weeks I will happily bestow and pass along these nominations to others, if I did so today this would be a Bloggers Book (re: the length). And I will happily answer the questions that go with the corresponding nominations … a little at a time.

If you nominated me for an Award and you are not listed here I apologize most sincerely, I have tried to be thorough, but I may have overlooked someone, not my intent at all. Please let me know and I will acknowledge same immediately. And now here are those wonderful and generous bloggers of whom I am both grateful and thankful.

A most special thanks to those already mentioned above and also to:

My most humble thanks and sincere appreciation to all of you!

  2. This is really wonderful, Penny! Perhaps my little note “nudged” you a little to open up that closet of yours♥ Your wording is so definitive of the specialness behind being bestowed a blogging award. I have always felt honored upon receiving any notification but it is the paying forward that has always meant the most to me, especially the comments received from those who accepted! Sometimes one is so fortunate to pass along to a fellow blogger the first award received…priceless…absolutely priceless♥♥♥

    • Yeah your nudging did have a fair amount to do with this lol! But in a fun and delightful way Sharla. Blogging is so very much about connections and making a positive difference isn’t it dearest friend! Much love to you this day, Penny xox

    • Thank you Rosy. Totally overwhelmed, never was terribly good about receiving things (whole life) but I’m hoping I was gracious to the generous people who nominated me for them. 🙂 xox

  3. I love the way you introduced the awards! And you gave purpose to the nomination process. What a life-affirming way to show respect for all the work that goes into creating and maintaining a blog!!! Congratulations!!! And congratulations to all those remarkable bloggers who received your nomination. I am celebrating!!!

    • Thanks, a bit daunting, and those little suckers did not want to line up for me at all, many many hours of struggling with wordpress configurations to have them mostly look okay. I am awe struck by these awards if truth be known. And yes most appreciative as well. It is a lot to deal with though, not negative just a lot! 🙂

    • Thank you Subhan. Yes it is overwhelming, I agree with you and I am both honored and humbled to be thought of in this way by so many. Again many thanks for your generous words of praise, your blessings and most especially your love my friend. 🙂 Penny

    • Thank you LuAnn it is Thanksgiving Evening right now and I did have, both delicious food and great family fun. I’m hoping your day was also all it could be dear friend! 🙂

  4. AnElephantCant believe all these awards
    He didn’t realise that there were so many
    But one thing is for sure
    No one can deserve them more
    Than our gracious petite delightfully sweet always inspirational Penny

    • Boomie, I’m like you in that I love what I do. To have people appreciate that is just the icing on the cake, as you also know. It’s just that sometimes it is all so difficult to take in and handle! Thank you dear friend! 🙂 Hope your TD was bestest for you and family! 🙂

    • Thanks Celestine, I do feel so honored but they’ve been hanging over my head like the sword of Damocles, not a negative thing, a responsibility thing. And I do so enjoy bloggers, was glad to finally bring this out, still some things to do, but at least they are out there now. It was a pain in the …. to line them all up, they were not cooperative in the least little bit! 🙂

Thank you for your thoughts!
