My First Nomination!

Meghan at Medieval Bookworm has nominated my blog for its first award. Thanks very much, Meghan! How exciting!

Now I don't know who started this award, but according to Meghan the rules are these:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Well, I'm not sure all the following will want to "play," but here goes:

Leesy Knits – Her blog isn't strictly literary, but it has lovely knitted stuff as well. And with six kids, the fact that she makes time to knit and read at all deserves some kind of award!

Books Please - Margaret seems to have very similar tastes to mine. And even when I disagree, her reviews are always literate and such a pleasure to read.

Just a Reading Fool - He says he hates memes, so he might feel the same way about these tag-award thingies. But I've been enjoying (and marveling at) his attempt to keep multiple blogs going and still manage to have interesting stuff on all of them.

late b(l)oomer - Sherry's isn't a book blog – she's an artist who also frequently posts about family history, poetry, travel, and many other aspects of her life. She has one of the most interesting and attractive blogs I've found.

Smiling Sally - Sal's blog includes book reviews as well as snippets from her everyday adventures and posts about her faith. And it's just always such an uplifting read!

Boyett-Brinkley – Again, not entirely a book blog, although it's partly that. And from time to time she features nice photos of San Antonio, my hometown. And besides, she's my cousin – and after 50-odd years of putting up with me, she needs all the awards she can get. Oops, did I say 50 years? And yet, we're both still only 39!


  1. Thank you Joy. I'm away from home right now and I'll put it on my blog when I get back - it'll be easier then for me than now. I enjoy your blog too.

    Margaret (BooksPlease)

  2. Hi Joy. Thanks for your kind comments abut my blog. I'm always surprised by the way blogging connects people who like similar things. We both like reading and dolls, for instance. I probably won't continue with the award tagging activity, but I'm pleased you enjoy my writing/art, and I'm glad to "meet" you on your pages.

  3. Margaret and Sherry--
    Thanks to both of you for responding. I love both your blogs. As I said, don't feel obligated to play along - these games of tag can be flattering and annoying at the same time!

  4. Congratulations, Joy! You deserve it!

  5. Congratulations on your award! And thank you for my nomination. And, I haven't been "putting up with you" for all those years -- I love you, you are the only "sister" I have and I wouldn't know what to do without you!

  6. Thanks for nominating me, Joy. Since this was my first one, I decided to respond and will tag seven others. Here is whom I tagged, with the caveat of course if they choose not to respond, that's all right. They're still worthy of being recognized by their peers -- if that's what I can even call myself in such august company.

  7. That's funny! You and I both nommied Just a (Reading) Fool and LeesyKnits! Now you know they're good blogs! lol... :-D

  8. I'm pleased to share my award, and you can find it here:

  9. I'm nominating you for another blog award! Thanks for giving me some great reading time with your blog.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
