Blog Central

I have a new award on the left. It was given to me by a blogger I only became familiar with after she very kindly awarded it to me. MBNAD Woman wrote about life with her border collie. I use the past tense because by the time I visited her blog, she had decided to stop writing because her beloved border collie had died. MBNAD Woman, if you're out there, thank you so much. And please write again sometime. You are a fantastic writer. Maybe you'll get another border collie and write about that or maybe you'll write about something else.

While visiting MBNAD Woman's blog, I came across another new (to me) blog. Alright Tit writes about her experience of having breast cancer in such a funny way. I know cancer is a serious subject and we shouldn't laugh. But Alright Tit does. She's not even 30 yet and has had what must be one hell of a year. But you wouldn't know it from reading her blog. I highly recommend it. You can find it on my blogroll.

Once again, I am reminded of the diversity of the blog world and the beauty of it. It brings together so many different types of people, and so many who express themselves so well. Sometimes I think I might shut down this blog. I haven't given it and my blog buddies the care and attention they need and deserve. But I wouldn't want to miss out on the blog world. I am going to pass this award on to everyone who visits this blog. You all deserve it.

Hey you - you give this blog and your buddies plenty of attention. When you post it is always well worth a visit and the fact that you don't post every day means that when I see a post from you I think great, I'll pop over and see how she is. People that post every day put me under pressure so I tend to stop following! You've got it just right.

I would miss you if you weren't here, even if you don't get here as often as you used to.

That's a very good looking award and it's very kind of you to pass it on to everyone visiting your blog. I've no idea how people find time to blog every day. You seem to do fine, to me.

Thanks for passing on the award.

Such a pretty award too, and deserved as ever. I'm glad I'm back. I've missed you.

I shut mine down for 14 months but came back and realized how much I missed everyone. Now, I just take a long break every so often to balance it all out.

Chapati: Thank you.

MOB: Thank you, and you have it just right too.

Fire Byrd: Thank you. That's sweet of you to say.

Mean Mom: I look forward to seeing it on your blog.

DG: I've missed you too, but I understand how it is with a new baby.

Fred: I'm glad you came back. I enjoy your blog. I've tried adding it to my blogroll, but keep having technical difficulties.

Congratulations on receiving the award. You're right, blogging brings together so many different walks of life. I hope you manage to find the new blogger.

NO! No leaving. No leaving.

Now, oh I must go read your recomended blog - just having the present scare I am experiencing is enough to make a woman want to really blow something up, but I'm in the u.s.a now and have been informed that is frowned on here....so I bought a bubble wand instead, sigh.

Congratulations on the award, it's so pretty.

I enjoyed the animal behaviorist visit--isn't it funny how they figure that stuff out? Hope Jake is doing better now.

Glad you kept the blog. I quit mine for a few months, then re-started my original blog and created a second one for a different set of blog friends (i.e. no family allowed).
