I got a surprise yesterday in the form of a E-Mail informing me that " THE WRITERS PORCH BLOG" had been nominated for the" MOST CHATTY BLOG AWARD" in the 2009 Book Blog Appreciation Awards!
The description of " MOST CHATTY " is this: " This blogger has a very chatty style. You feel like you could be sitting together, sipping wine and chatting about life." Talk about surprised! First, I do not consider my blog to be " a book blog". I started this blog mainly to show appreciation to all forms of creativity out here. Yes, books ARE my favorite thing in the world to talk about but books are just "ONE " form of the creative spirit! I'm amazed at the creativity of the blogs I follow! WRITERS both published and NOT YET published! ARTISTS, whose talent just stops me in my tracks! CRAFTERS who come up with amazing craft ideas that leave you shaking your head in awe! Let's not forget those who QUILT, CROCHET and SEW, which to me requires the patience of JOB, to create gorgeous works! PHOTOGRAPHERS, GARDNER'S, then you have those who raise all types of farm animals. Trust me, you have to be creative to live on a farm and raise animals. You have to be in tune with the weather, the animals and the varmints who are looking for a meal! What amazes me most, is that most creative people in the blog world, do have one or more of these things going on in their life!! There are a zillion great BOOK BLOGS out here who devote their blog to books and reading! If you click this picture on my sidebar you will find a list! So I am removing my blog from the nomination so that a blog about books has a better chance to win. I really do appreciate that someone nominated my blog but it should be a true BOOK BLOG that wins this award! THE WRITERS PORCH BLOG is DEDICATED to ALL of YOU who enhance our lives with YOUR CREATIVITY !
Guess what? I got surprised yesterday also by ANOTHER bloom in the Elephant Ears!!
AND.....by this Orangy/Red Butterfly!
