Paying Forward: The Bloom of an Idea Award

I have recently won a couple awards and both were the pay it forward type in one way or the other. I thought that since I reached my 20th follower this past week, I would give a award to all of you who clicked 'follower' when I have so few, inspired me by something you wrote on your own blogs and made me a follower of you.

The Bloom of an Idea Award goes to those who gave me something to think about--from your own post or a comment on my own. I am glad to have you and hope to hear from all of you soon. And I hope you enjoy this thank you.

  10. Thanks, Nicole. It is a beautiful award. And thanks even more for the insightful, appreciative comments on my blog -- they mean a lot to me.

    You will get more followers as the days go by for yours is a great blog. My first days blogging I felt like I was playing to an empty house. But you are not.

    You might want to have a stat counter installed on your blog so that you can see how many stop by without commenting. It might help give you a better idea of how many you are reaching, Roland

  11. I'm grateful on several different levels. First, just to receive an award is awesome. But on top of that its a brand new one recognizing blogs that inspire creative thought, thats icing in top of the cake. I'm honored indeed!! Thank you Nicole, and congrats to my fellow recipients!! :)

  12. What a beautiful award - thanks so much, Nicole!

  13. Aww, thank you so much for thinking of me, Nicole! Hope you are having a good week! :)

  14. Roland: I went and found me a counter. Thank you for the idea and the kind words. I enjoy your writing and your blog. Creativity and muse talk is great, but the support you show towards others is greater.

    DL: You are making me blush. I am glad the award was received so well. It was just as nice to give.

    Susan and Shelley: No problem ladies. I am happy you like the blooming bling and look forward to further posts from all of you. And I intend to have a lovely week!!!!
