Cyber-Walk of the Stars ...

A big THANK YOU to a big friend for a big award.  Erin, over at If you Give a Mom a Moment, has graciously bestowed me with the Super Stalker Award.  I'm guessing most of you stalk her blog anyway, but if you don't ... head on over.  She's funny and honest and entertaining.  And she's a great stalker and commenter herself.  She has become a good friend.


This award is presented to a Super blogger. This person is not only a terrific person, but a great bloggy friend. More than just a Stalker, they are a loyal reader who cares. The comments that they leave in their wake are sincere and heart-felt -making it apparent that they are truly interested. That someone cares. To which we reward them by saying:

YOU ARE A SUPER STALKER!
This award belongs to YOU!

All we ask is the following:
1-In your own time, share this award with ONE other blogger who you feel is worthy of the Super Stalker title. This award is not to be handed out freely, but deliberately given from one Super Stalker to another -Making the recipient deserving. Keeping the award true to its form and the reason for its beginning.
2-As you award that one Super Blogger, include this message in its entirety along with your acceptance speech.
3-Enjoy your REWARD! You DESERVE IT! You EARNED IT!

Well, I do try to care about the people in the blogs I visit.  I read their entire post, and I leave comments that usually show that fact.  (I will always have an opinion.)  I figure that's how I want people to treat my blog and that is how they will get to know me a bit.  It won't be by skimming.  Of course, I'm not perfect, and I do have this thing called a family that I'm supposed to be taking care of ... so before I start to wallow in my distress over these conflicting pulls on my time, I will announce the recipient of this award.

This Super Stalker Award goes to someone who faithfully reads and comments on my blog and has spread her blogging wings with great rapidity and flair.  I now see her all around "town."  The best thing for me is that this stalker lives close enough that we are able to use this tool to make a real, live, face-to-face friendship out of it.  And I'm grateful, because otherwise she'd still just be "that beautiful Valiant 9 teacher who teaches with her husband."  This is for YOU, Heatherlyn.

It's funny...before I even scrolled down to see who you would be passing this award on to...I thought of Heatherlyn. I love her too!

A well deserved award. Congratulations.

I have faith that you will be able to figure out how to manage your time and still be a great mother/wife/blogger.

Congrats on the award! You totally deserve it.

Erin said...

Yes, you DO deserve it. And I totally understand about the conflicting pulls on my time. In fact, my boy is watching Thomas the Tank Engine right now. Maybe it's time to go play Monopoly with him...

Lolli said...

Congrats on the award! That's such a great one!

Becky said...

Well, now I'm gonna have to go check out Heatherlyn!

(I'm already a fan of Erin - she's great.)

Mina said...

Oh no!! I've jsut realized I have TWO commenters named "Becky." This'll be no problem if I'm looking in the comments, but I tend to just read them on my email. Okay--up north Becky has a return email listed. Writer Becky does not. North, yes. Writer, no. North, yes, writer, no.

What'll I do if writer Becky adds an email address? This will be too much for my little brain. I guess this is one of the potential pit falls of blogging.
