Sunshine Award

The ever-wonderful Megan at A Dash of Nutmeg has made me a very happy blogger today by giving me my very first blog award, the sunshine award!

If you haven't yet visited A Dash of Nutmeg I highly recommend it!  Megan presents some very delicious recipes (which I have personally sampled once or twice).

Now, along with the award comes the stipulation that I have to pass it on to some others, so without further ado, here are my Sunshine Award Nominees (in no particular order):

  1. David at The Occasional Humorist -  A great humor blog from a very talented Canadian columnist.
  2. Dr. Jeff Sanders at A Moment in History - I have known Jeff for nearly 30 years. He is a great and and a great historian.
  3. Mignon Fogarty aka Grammar Girl - Great tips to improve your writing and grammar. Check out her book The Grammar Devotional.
  4. Kevin Cummings at Short Cummings Audio - I love Kevin’s writing. BDGJM would not exist with his influence and mentorship. I have the honor of having an autographed copy of his hilarious book Happily Domesticated.
  5. C. Hope Clark’s blog – This is a great source for upcoming writing contests. She sometimes offers a different perspective for writing. Besides, she’s a middle name person like me.
  6. J. Timothy King’s Blog -  Another great middle name person who is an independent romance writer. His blog isn’t only about romance writing. I love his work. We had had somewhat similar career paths.
  7. Bonnie Trenga aka The Sentence Sleuth – another great authority on better writing and grammar. I highly recommended her book The Curious Case of the Misplaced Modifier.
  8. My dear friend Megan at A Dash of Nutmeg. Megan is like a little sister to me. Her cookies are phenomenal.
  9. Comedy4Cast – a hilarious podcast by Clinton Alvrod.
  10. On The Front Porch – Another great blog with funny stories that often revolve around the writer’s family. I love Wendy’s blog.
  11. Hey, It’s Free! This is a great source to get free samples and giveaways.
  12. Closet of Free Samples - Another great website for giveaways and free stuff!
 Congrats to the winners.  Now here's what you have to do:
  •  Put the award logo on your blog or within your post
  •  Pass the award to 12-well-deserving bloggers
  •  Link the nominees within your post
  •  Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog
  •  Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award


  1. LOL you just got chain lettered in a blog.

  2. Yes, indeed, I did. But, I figure, one of these days, I will be interviewing for this primo job. The interviewer will say: "What?! A Sunshine Award Winner?! WHEN can you start?



All comments will be reviewed before they are published.
I try to maintain a family friendly and humorous blog.
Please post your comments with that spirit in mind.

Thank you,
