"A Blog With Substance Award"

Yesterday a.k.a. Gramma passed on the above award to me! I so appreciate the thought. It's always nice to be recognized.

Along with thanking the one who recognized your blog, the recipient is also asked to sum up their blogging philosophy, motivation, and experiences using five words.

So, here goes -

My philosophy about blogging is to write about things and places that I find interesting. I've learned a great deal from other bloggers that I might never have known if it weren't for the topics they write about.

My motivation came after reading blogs for several months. I'd read about lots of places I've never been, found WONDERFUL recipes to try, and just learned lots of facts I'd never known. I wanted people to know about some of the things that make my little corner of the world special and since I love to cook, maybe pass on some recipes that I've used over the years.

My experience in blogland has been nothing less that wonderful. I've made many friends I would never have known otherwise and just enjoy their "virtual" company most every single day.

The last thing on the agenda is to pass the award on to some deserving bloggers. This is the hardest part of all because there are so many out there. Some bloggers prefer to have their blogs remain "award free" and I truly understand and respect their wishes.

I picked 3 bloggers to recognize. They are:

Parsley at Seasons of My Mind
Bren at Grace on the Narrow Path and
Bobbi from Gracie Owns Me

Each of these lovely ladies have much to offer on their blogs. Drop by and say hi! I think you'll enjoy meeting them.


  1. What a wonderful HONOR. Thank you!!! You bless me.

  2. Congratulations, Oklahoma Granny! I agree, you are doing a very nice job of blogging :) Gerry

  3. Thank you my friend for thinking of me. God's blessings to you.

  5. Congrats on the award! I agree, the blogosphere is such a fascinating and fun place to visit. We will never experience all the wonderful things that are out there. But, it sure is fun trying!!! ;)

  10. Best wishes on your award. It is nice to be remembered in any fashion these days.

  11. Blog awards are always hard to pick aren't they? Congrats for getting an award!!! On the mobile blogging, I logged into blogger dashboard and a pop up that this setting was available popped up. So I clicked to allow it. I think it is awesome for those that can view it with a phone. I really really want a Droid but not sure I can get one! lol

  12. I love Parsley! I'll have to go check out the other two ladies.
