Results, Benchmarks & Award

After yesterday's poll, I looked into the results and the comments you all left (big thanks to everyone who answered) and found that generally speaking, people mostly want a mix of posting topics. That's what I figured I'd see, but there were a few deviations making the 2nd highest choice topics about ME ME ME. **BLUSH** Thanks guys and gals.

I'll try not to disappoint you.

As for the "Benchmark" part of the title, I just wanted to shout out a big thanks to everyone who's joined my blog as a follower. I've passed the 50 followers benchmark. It's an honor for me to have so many of you stopping by to read what I have to say and encourage me in my own writing journey. A big special thank you to those of you who, not only follow me, but come by regularly to comment! Also I'd like to give a special thank you to Moonrat, who's industry related blog inspired me to start blogging again. So Moonrat, if you find yourself in sunny AZ, you are welcome to all the goodies in my trash cans and I promise I won't call Animal Control. **for those of you who don't already follow Moonrat, go check it out the blog, it's great!**

On to the "Award" portion of the title. I recently found myself a new blog to follow called Southern City Mysteries. I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with it and if not, drop by. There's some great postings and information coming through. I was graced there with an award called the "Creative Writer Award," and a wonderful review for my blog. THANKS! This particular award does not appear to have any stipulations or anything. I'm going to hold on to it and will pass it on here in the near future, so stay tuned. EDIT: Also, Tiana Lei was kind enough to pass on the Honest Scrap Award as well. I've answer the Honest Scrap questions before. Here is that post if you want to see my answers.

As a side note, I'm posting a missing persons request. Does anyone know where Ash went? She ran the blog "From Ramblings to Interviews," but it's not there anymore. I wondered if her link changed or do we need to send out the blood hounds and helicopters?

Sunny AZ, bitch.

I like the rest of the post. Congrats on the awards.

Congrats on the award! Aren't they fun?

Tere Kirkland said...

I love the dude's face in the above pic. LOL.

Congratulations on your awards! And I second the notion that those who've never checked out moonrat's blog should do so. Like yesterday. ;)

Congrats on the benchmark and the awards.


Elana Johnson said...

Congrats on the awards. And I echo Jonathan about being in sunny AZ. Had to rub that in, right? ;-)

Interesting posts you have here. I've been scrolling through and like what I see. Congrats on the award. I love Moonrat, and have to agree you're missing out if you're not visiting.

Apparantly I've been missing out here also.

Thank you very much everyone. Glad to have all of your support. You all made my day, yes even you jealous Jonathon :P

Also, welcome over Donna. Always good to see a new face.

I know that mixing it up keeps me coming back for more to blogs. I like a focus for a while but it does get old eventually.
