Appreciated Follower Award


A lovely surprise came my way yesterday when Fiona J. Phillips, playwright and future novelist, presented me with an Appreciated Follower Award. She writes a great blog, Fi's Magical Writing Haven, which provides wonderful pieces of inspiration for writers. I particularly enjoy when she posts five or so photos and challenges us to write a story about them. Usually, they are lovely shots from the U.K., which satisfy both my writer curiosity and my rampant Anglophilia. Thanks, Fi.

The rules of the award are as follows.
  1. Thank the giver, and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
  2. Reveal your top five picks, and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
  4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
  5. And most of all, have bloggity-blog fun.
The Appreciated Follower Award provides an opportunity for me to tell all Bibliophilic Blather readers how grateful I am that you have joined me here and how much I appreciate our conversations. You all rock, of course, but here are the five people who stop by and comment most often.

Thank you, top five, and everyone who stops by.

Wow. An award. An award for something I very much enjoy doing anyway—reading and occasionally commenting upon your wonderfully written blog entries.

That's what I call hitting the lottery.

Many, many thanks for the recognition, and for the great reading pleasure you supply.
You are the best, R. Doug.
What a great idea; you really can't tell people enough how much you appreciate them :)

Hello Karen. Visiting from the She Writes Blog Hop and so glad to get to know you through your blog and website. Your group of classic lit lovers sounds right down my alley and your novel sounds intriguing. I will put it on my list! By the way, yes I constantly wonder about the stories going on behind those closed doors I pass as I take my after dinner walk. I am most interested in the way the public image always turns out to be so much different from the reality.
Thanks for stopping by, Shelley. You are very right!

Carol, thanks for your interest in Whisper. :)

Stopping by to say hello on the Blogger Ball! ; )
My pleasure, Beverly.

Shelley, thanks for visiting.
Hi Karen: Visiting from the she writes bloggers ball. I love the idea of your novel about 2 women, childbearing and thinking the grass is always greener. I think it could resonate with a lot of women, including myself and look forward to getting it to read.
Thanks, Cristina. I appreciate you stopping by.
