  1. So happy I could nominate you for that award,Janice. It’s perfect for you. Besides, I like to give you nice surprises. You and I match because I always cry at sad movies too, especially if it has a sad ending. If it does, I can’t sleep.

  2. Congratulations! Very well deserved!! And thank you for the nomination, you are very kind! 🙂

    Congratulations! 🙂 And thank you so much for the nomination! I’m genuinely honoured. I will add the fact that you’ve nominated me to my blog’s awards page, but I’m afraid I’ll have to break the rules this time. Having recently received awards, I don’t want to risk appearing to Spam those who I believe are deserving by nominating them again. I hope that you don’t mind!

    Just as an aside, I hate to mention it, but the nominees are supposed to be listed as live links, to a post on their blog if possible, to create a ‘pingback’. That helps to create a network of blogs 🙂

    All the best,
    Steve 🙂

  8. One of my followers asked me a question I couldn’t answer, how do they vote? Since I’m new to blogging, I didn’t know.
