You may recall the decision I made to participate in the April A to Z blogging challenge. If not, you can use the link to take you to that post. So today begins with ‘A’.
As fate would have it, I have been presented with my ‘A’ in the form of an ‘Award’ by the lovely Dianna over at These Days of Mine. The award is appropriately named the ‘ABC’ award for Awesome Blog Content. Isn’t that the perfect way to start my A to Z challenge? Thank you immensely Dianna for considering my blog to be worthy of this award. Yours is definitely awesome!
The requirements are simple. I should say something about myself for each letter of the alphabet. So here goes.
A – Artistic
B – Blonde Blogger
C – Cheerful
D – Dog lover
E – Easy to talk to
F – Forty-something
G – GOG – Good Ole Girl – a group of friends who stick together
H – Helpful
I – Instintive
J – Joyful
K – Knowledge seeker
L – Loyal
M – Mom
N – Naturally curly hair
O – Open minded
P – Perceptive
Q – Questioning
R – Rational
S – Sympathetic
T – Tenacious
U – Understanding
V – Vocal – (always a talker)
W – Writer (obviously)
X – Xena addict (got to love her strength)
Y – Young at heart
Z – Zany
So there you have my 26 things. I tried to use the very first thing that came to mind, although I did cheat a bit on ‘L’. I started to say ‘Late occasionally’ and then the word ‘loyal’ popped into mind and I thought it sounded better. I am fiercely loyal – even to my hairdresser.
All of the blogs I follow have Awesome Blog Content. But I would like to highlight a few who have had some great posts recently.
That’s a dozen and I could keep going but I figure I should leave a few blogs for these recipients to share theirs with. But I will reiterate that my entire blogroll is award worthy and deserves attention. I also need to add a few new ones to the list and will be doing so in the upcoming days.
So happy April and let’s give a shout out for A to Z blogging participants.
Nice list. I started with a personal story so will stick to the theme and write about my life from A-Z.
I am at http://sulekharawat.com/2012/03/31/air-travel-tale/
Thanks for visiting. Your idea sounds fantastic. I visited your site and tried to leave a comment but I don’t think it posted. Air travel frightens a lot of people.
It is so nice of you to highlight other blogs in your challenge post.
—Damyanti, Co-host A to Z Challenge April 2012
Thanks Damyanti. I appreciate your co-hosting this event and left a comment at your blog. Looking forward to getting to know you.
Congrats on getting one more award. And as always thanks a lot for sending me your blessings in form of these blog awards. I like your A-Z list. I just want a little change in the word you wrote for “W”. It would be “Wonderful Writer & Wonderful Person”. And I really mean it.
Good Luck for A-Z blogging challenge. 🙂

Thanks! Your blog is awesome too, but I know you aren’t fond of awards, so I’ll just call it a compliment. Glad you enjoyed the ABC’s.
Oh goodness! I’ve been working all day on my book proposal, that I haven’t been online and now here I am and what do I find out? That my sweet blogger pal has bestowed on me such a wonderful honor. A to Z indeed! Thank you so much, Renee!
You are very welcome. And anyone working on a book proposal is super-awesome.
Awesome! You learn so much about someone in just 26 words.
Thanks. I love your name – Masquerade Crew! You sound like fun.
congratulations on your award. Great job moving through the alphabet. It’s a brain twister that you handle well.
Thanks Barb. Now if only the April challenge moves along as well…
Thank you, m’ dear, for bestowing this honor. I’ll try to do you proud. I’m a bit in arrears in fulfilling conditions for awards, but have been writing little fragments that are getting put in my MyMaWriMo software. (Yes, I have the software more-or-less up and working, with all the ideas and “starts” listed in one place!)
Lee, you are such a busy lady that I’m constantly impressed with what you accomplish. You’re already Awesome!
Great job, Renee, and congrats on the award. I had picked up on several of these qualities from reading your blog, but I never would have guessed “naturally curly hair.” That’s some hair dresser you have! 🙂
