Best Blog Comments Award


Rue of Rue and Hyssop and Inannasstar of Ramblings of a Domestic Goddess have both given me a Best Blog Comments Award! I am truly appreciative of this -- thanks so much, you lovely bloggin' gals! I have a few comments about comments, so to speak, but first -- the rules of this award.

1. Link back to the blog/blogger who nominated you.
2. Paste the picture of the award into your post.
3. Nominate other bloggers who you think deliver great comments to your blog.
4. Email/post/tweet or do whatever you need to do to inform these bloggers that they have been nominated.

When I first started reading blogs three or four years ago, I was a classic lurker. I never left comments. In fact, I didn't even know how. But once I started my own blog, I soon realized how important comments are. They let you know that someone is actually reading your stuff. You're not just babbling to yourself in cyberspace!

It's hard when you first start blogging and no one leaves comments. I still remember the thrill of receiving my first one! OMG, someone out there had actually read my blathering! Squeeeee!

So now I make a point of trying to leave a comment on many posts that I read. And I'm always grateful for each and every comment that is left on my blog. Thank you all very much! I enjoy reading them immensely.

For this award, I'd like to nominate four bloggers who often leave comments on my blog that make me laugh out loud at their quirky wit. Check out their blogs if you like writers with an extra-good sense of humour!

You are a stellar commenter. I'm so humbled to win this award. Especially since I didn't comment on the last post even though I laughed maniacally. I still have that chartreuse vision burned onto my retinas. Thanks pookie. I'm also assuming this means there are no limits to just how inappropriate I can be on your sweet and esoteric blog. Game on!

Seen your name at Cynthia's so thought I'd pop over.
I agree comments are lovely to get. And sometimes difficult to understand when someone suddenly stops commenting.
BTW thousands of years ago I had my honeymoon in Boscastle.

I always love your witty comments. Wish you could bottle that wit and sell it - I'd order a double batch!

Comments are a delight. I love reading other people's blogs and commenting is such a good way to repay them for sharing. Looks like you get the blue ribbon in commenting. Good for you!!!
