I'm way behind on announcing the marvelous awards I've received in the past few weeks. I feel like an award hoarder. So, if you don't mind me combining the awards, I think I'll do just that. First, I'll announce the awards, and then I'll pass them on to a few splendid blogging folk.
From the brilliant Michael Pierce and adorable Randi Lee, I received the Booker Award. Thanks, Michael and Randi for thinking I'm so "bookish". :))
Delightful Kelley Lynn from Between the Bookends awarded me the Be Inspired award. Awesomesauce back at you, Kelley Lynn!And the charming, yet sassy Gossip Girl awarded me The Fabulous Blog Ribbon. My dear, you're quite fabulous yourself. :)) Also, awarding me this fabulous award is the sweetheart, Randi Lee!
And, finally! Jennifer from <3donniedarkogirl<3 awarded me the Liebster Blog Award. Thanks, Jennifer. :))
See, told you I was hoarding!
Lately, there have been awards out the wazoo flowing through the blogosphere. Feel free to pass up the award if you don't have time. Trust me, I know how ya feel!! I received one months ago, and never picked it up. Now, I can't remember who awarded me. O_O
As a habitual rule follower, I've made a difficult decision. I would not only bore my readers to tears, but also, hit an all-time high word count for my blog posts, if I didn't combine all of these awards into one. Sorry. It's not laziness; it's merely out of respect for your time and mine. (In the middle of polishing two contest pieces.)
So, THANK YOU too all my award-givers and CONGRATS to the following award-recipients! You all receive every award listed. :))
I will add details about the Booker Award, since it seems to be a newer one, at least for me. :)) **The rules for the rest of the awards can be found on each blogger who awarded me. I've used their award posts as their links.
For the Booker Award
The rules:This award is for book bloggers only. To receive this award the blog must be at least 50% about books (reading or writing is okay)
Along with receiving this award, you must also share your top five favorite books you have ever read. You must award 5 bloggers, with booky blogs you adore.

Several of these bloggers are new to the Insecure Writer's Group. Please hop on by and offer a bit of support. I think I should swear off accepting awards for a while. Hoarding isn't healthy.
