Blog Awards - Yay!

I've fallen behind with these awards, and I blame blogger. I finished this post weeks ago but blogger didn't save it (argh)! So here goes:

The first awards I received were from Liyana of the amazing blog, LiyanaLand. I also received an award from bridget3420, also known as the amazing blogger from Readaholic. And last but not least, I received an award were from Jo from Ink And Paper.

And since last time, I received another award from Liyana and an award from Diane of The Book Resort, a fantastic blog that I've only recently discovered!

Some of these are from posts over a month old so I had to scroll back through older posts :)

From bridget3420:

The Lemonade Award Logo
The award winners must:
Link back to the person he/she received the award from.
Nominate 10 bloggers who are deserving of this award.
Put the Lemonade Award logo on your blog.

Thank you to bridget3420! Please check out her amazing blog, Readaholic.

From Liyana:

One Lovely Blog Award

You Don't Say? Award

Splash Award

Some of the rules weren't on the post but I'm happy with the pretty awards :D

And since last time from Liyana:

Literary Blogger Award
The Literary Blogger Award acknowledges bloggers who energize & inspire reading by going the extra mile. These amazing bloggers make reading fun & enhance the delight of reading!
The Rules:
1) Put the logo on your blog/post.
2) Nominate up to 9 blogs which make you feel comfy or warm inside.
3) Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4) Let them know that they have been nominated by commenting on their blog.
5) Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award.

Thank you Liyana!

From both Liyana and Jo of Ink and Paper:

#1 Blogger Award

Me-To-You Award

Liyana and Jo.

2. List six unimportant things that make you happy;
Pretty colours

Other people's smiles

Let's Be Friends Awards

Blogs that received the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.

2009 Friendly Blogger Award

Thanks to Jo and Liyana :)

Check out their wicked blogs: Ink and Paper and LiyanaLand

And last but not least, my award from the amazing Diane:

The Enchanted Blog Award:

The only requirement for this award is that you shared it with whomever you like, sharing the love is always a good thing. The blog has to show only one characteristic, caring. So, start sharing this enchanted award with five other bloggers. Let your bloggers know they have received this enchanted award. (Remember, fairies are fickle wee things, don't incur their displeasure by ignoring their gift).

A huge thank you to Diane who is an amazingly nice person :)

Check out her fantastic blog The Book Resort

Here is what is going to happen:

There are a lot of awards on this post and to find out the rules for all of them and follow them would be a lot of work. So I'm going to choose a lot of blogs who I think deserve all these awards! I'll probably just write up the blogs I follow.

A few rules:
1. If you already have any of the awards, you don't have to post them up again (that would just be time consuming).
2. If you get these awards, you rock. If you don't, you still rock.
3. If I haven't awarded a blog that I follow (if you have two blogs) I may have awarded the second blog and forgot about the first blog.
4. If I have forgotten to include any blog that I follow (comment on the bottom and I'll add you).
5. Smile :)
