STYLISH BLOGGER AWARD!












The other day, I was pleased to receive this award from Joylene Nowell Butler. 

According to the rules, I should share seven things about myself, and then pass the award on to seven bloggers.

So here goes....

Seven Things:
1.  I am a retired social worker who now enjoys the writer's life;
2.  This past year, I have participated in several writer's challenges, including NaNoWriMo;
3.  In addition to writing my books, I have lots of blogs (fourteen);
4.  My five published books are available on Amazon.com and my website;
5.  My four grown kids and seven grandkids illuminate my life;
6.  I love reading, writing, and blogging...and don't really enjoy exercising;
7.  I hate housework!


Now for the seven bloggers:
1.  Becca, at Bookstack
2.  Trish, at Desk Top Retreat
3.  Alayne, at The Crowded Leaf
4.  Natalie, at The Book Inn
5.  Sheila, at Book Journey
6.  Kathy, at Bermuda Onion
7.  The Girl from the Ghetto

So, thanks again to Joylene for reminding me that the blogging community is a fun place...and congrats to everyone else receiving this award.


Hope you all have a great day!

  11. It's so nice learning things about you, Laurel. I had no idea you had so many blogs. How do you manage? I'm having problems keeping up with just one. Good for you for your diligence. Happy Sunday, Laurel!

  12. Thanks, Joylene...Yes, I did go a bit crazy/obsessive with the blogs, but at one point, I had twenty. So the fourteen (merged a few) is an improvement.

    Generally I post something on one or more of them everyday, and try to match my topic to the appropriate blog.

    I guess that's why I felt the need for so many...one for each of my (multiple) personalities...LOL
