Blogging Awards

L. Diane Wolfe, of Spunk on a Stick’s Tips, recently gave me two awards. Both of them are very special to me.

First, she passed on to me the Circle of Friends Award. If you know Diane, you know her series of YA books is called the Circle of Friends series, yet she didn’t create this award. Needless to say, she was quite excited to receive it and I am just as happy that she passed it on to me.

The rules state I must pass it on to five other special friends.

I only know the ones that Diane awarded it to, so if you’ve already received this, forgive me, but know I give it to you because I do consider you special friends. I’d like to pass the Circle of Friends Award to:

1. Miriam S. Foster

2. Watery Tart

3. Alex J. Cavanaugh

4. Mason Canyon

5. Paul D. Brazill

Diane also gave me The Blogger Buddies Award (another gorgeous award - I’m envious of the artists who create these). There doesn’t seem to be rules to this one. Diane passed it on to people she felt helped her get her blog started. I’m going to pass it on to new bloggers, in hopes of helping them meet new friends who will help grow their blog.

1. Karen Casey Fitzjerrell

2. Terri Schexnayder

3. Cold as Heaven

Thank you, Diane, for both awards. And thank you to all who visit Straight From Hel. You are my Blogger Buddies within this wonderful Circle of Friends.

  1. Hi helen,

    It's cool being your buddy and I love visiting. I have a gift of sorts too. I've a link about ebook piracy and I think you'd post a finer article and reach more people than I would. If you're interested here it is Also a competition for nonfiction and memoir writers here

    Cheers, Simon.

  2. Congratulations on your award and thanks for giving me some new links to check out! :)

  3. Thanks for the links, Simon. They both sound interesting.

  4. Congratulations on your awards! The bottom one is awfully cute!

  5. I am not artistic, bermudaonion, so I am always amazed at people who paint or who can create these cute awards.

  6. Congrats, Helen! You deserve every award out there, in my opinion. They should come up with a SuperWoman Blogger Award for you.

  7. Raising my coffee cup in a toast to your Awards, congrats :)

  8. Double Congrats, Helen. Well deserved. Off to check the links you provided.

  9. Awww! Thanks Helen! I appreciate it. :)

  10. Congratulations on both of your awards. I'm honored that you passed the "Circle of Friends" award on to me and consider me among your special friends. I enjoy your blog and have found many interesting tips and links here even though I'm not an author. I treasure you friendship. Thanks again.

  11. Congrats - good choices too :)

  12. Me??? Hey, thanks! My first award.

  13. Hello peeps. Can't be much of a super woman if my comments won't show up on my own blog. Gotta figure out why they're being swallowed by cyberspace. We'll see if this one posts.

  14. Helen-Congratulations on both of your awards, and thank you so much! I'm honored! Is there TIMING for passing on (like is tomorrow good?) I really appreciate the honor and think YOUR blog was definitely deserving. You are a wealth of information and have helped me a ton!

  15. You can pass it on whenever you'd like. There's no deadline at all.

  16. Hey I got those two too! Homored to be in such fine blogger company - congrats and well deserved, Helen.

    I'm off now to check out the new links :)
