Friendship Blog Award

Lisa Logan of Writing In My Wildest Dreams awarded me the Friendship Blog Award. Lisa has a great blog. When you click over, you’re taken to a warning of Adult Content. For a long time, I stopped and didn’t go any further. When I finally clicked to enter, I found it not at all “adult.” Rarely is there anything deserving of the warning, so don’t let it stop you from visiting. She’s an expert on Feng Shui and dream analysis. I’ve adopted her as my therapist (=;-O)

About the award:
Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind 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.
I'd hereby like to deliver this award to the following exceedingly charming, friendly bloggers:

Karen Walker of Karen…following the whispers
Karen is open and always willing to share herself with those of us who stop by.

Stacy S. Jensen of Stacy Writes
Stacy speaks her mind and always entertains.

Lauri Kubuitsile of Thoughts from Botswana
With each post, Lauri takes me to her world which is quite different from mine.

Marvin Wilson of The Old Silly’s Free Spirit Blog
Marvin has probably received about every award there is, but he still deserves an award for friendship, plus he’s still smiling even though his blog got eaten and he had to start over.

Hagelrat of Unbound
Not only is Hagelrat not a rat, she’s a great friend of writers. Check out her blog which is full of book reviews!

Angie Ledbetter of Gumbo Writer
Angie does the unexpected. One day she’s talking about Dr. Phil then the next she’s giving out a recipe for Peach Cobble, complete with pictures, and somehow relating it to writing.

Jane Kennedy Sutton of Jane’s Ride
What’s not to love about someone who, in the same post, can blog about a horror book written entirely on toilet paper and a spray fragrance called Smell of Books that comes in New Book Smell, Scents of Sensibility, Classic Musty, Crunchy Bacon and Eau You Have Cats?

Julie Lomoe of Julie Lomoe’s Musings Mysterioso
If you’re having a bad day, just click over and look at the picture at the top of her blog. It’ll calm you down. Then read a post or two, maybe the one titled, “Norman Mailer Admired My Chest…”

I leave it up to each of these great bloggers to pass on the Let’s Be Friends Award - or not. But I do hope that every person who stops by Straight From Hel today will visit these wonderful people and make some new friends.

  1. Congrats on the award. It really is well-deserved.

  2. Wow what a nice surprise this morning. :) Good friends made in the wonderful world of Bloggydom (like you) are a such a nice fringe benefit of blogging. Congrats on your receiving this, thanks for the pass on to me, and I'm familiar with several of the other recipients - all cool peeps with great blogs.

  3. Congratulations on your award!

  4. Sweet idea! I'll check them all out.

  5. Good morning all! It's fun to be able to pass along blogging awards to friends! Yay.

  6. Congratulations, Helen. Your award is certainly deserved. Great content here and it’s always a friendly place to visit. I’m familiar with many of the other blogs you mentioned. They, too, are deserving. The ones I don’t know are fixin’ to get a visit. Thanks.

    Best regards, Galen

  7. Congratulations to all the winners!

  8. Thanks for passing along the award, Helen. I'm honored to be included in a list that includes such outstanding blogs.


  9. Congratulations to the award winners.

    Helen, it's an award you deserve as well. You do a good job on your blog.

    Have a great day!

  10. Helen you definitely deserve this award. You spread so much of your ample knowledge; I know I've learned loads from you.

    And how sweet that you've passed the award unto me. Thanks!

  11. Hello Lauri, Sia, Jane, Jean, Galen, and all - hope everyone is having a great day (and finding friendly blogs).

  12. Not surprised you received the award, Helen. Yours is one of the blogs I enjoy the most.

  13. I'll ignore the adult warning then!

    L. Diane Wolfe

  14. Congrats, Helen and thank you for the other blog listings. I'm learning great stuff from my fellow bloggers like you!

  15. Give it a try, Diane. You can always exit if something offends you. Conda, I'm learning from others, too.

  16. Thanks so much for the plug, Helen! Yes, the warning was required by Blogger as some of my excerpts and occasional content involves adult material. But it's not the focus of what I offer there.

    Off to check out some of YOUR award winners!


  17. Hope you find some blogs you like, Lisa!

  18. Congrats on the award, Helen.
    I've been neglecting my blog a bit lately so I can get Killer Career in the can. Hope to have free time soon, but I'm not counting on it. Lots of stuff to do. I've got to look for my list again.

    Great blog choices
    Morgan Mandel

  19. It hurts to not have time to blog, I know. But the book comes first.

  20. Thanks Helen. It was a nice surprise this evening. I'm making my rounds on the Internet a bit late today.

  21. Congratulaions! And is the slide show new? It looks great.

    Bargain with the Devil

  22. Well, hot dang, how'd I miss this? Thanks so much for the award, and congrats on your deserved kudos.

  23. Hi Stacy, Enid and Angie.

    The slide show isn't new, but it can go unnoticed. I think I need to load new pictures, if I can remember how to do it!
