Next up, I'd like to award some Bloggy Bling to commemorate my 200th Post. Sure didn't know what I was headed for when I started this Blogging Business, way back in June. Do you realize that I've posted Every. Single. Day since June 16, 2008? That's some Mighty Prodigious Posting! Hey, maybe I should be getting the bling, instead of you? There must be an award for this kind of enjoyable insanity out there, somewhere!
Anyway, I'd like to continue a tradition I started Way Back in November, with my 150th Post. For that milestone, I created the My Blog is Pop-tastic Award. It's sort of modeled after the great Pop Artists of the '50s and '60s. They were Innovators. They were Cutting Edge. And I pretty much feel that way about many of you, too!
As with all Bloggy Bling, the My Blog is Pop-tastic Award comes with a couple of Rules and Regs:
- When you receive The Award, please post it on your blog, linking back to the person who gave it to you.
- In addition, please link to This Post and This Post, which explains the origins of The Award.
- Please visit Veggie Mom's November Post, which explains the origins of The Award, and Sign Mr. Linky, so we'll be able to keep a record of all whose Blogs are Pop-tastic! Feel free to leave a comment, too!!
- Pass The Award along to SIX Bloggy Friends, whose creativity merits inclusion in this circle. Link to their blogs in your Awards Post, and notify them that they've received The Award!
That's it, kids. Except for the Awarding of The Bling, I guess. I know all of my Bloggy Friends deserve this, but I'm forced to name just six. I hereby present the My Blog Is Pop-tastic award to the Following Friends, who've made Eat Your Veggies! such a fun and fulfilling journey:
- Annie. She comments every day, and is almost always the first one out there!
- Vicki. She's generous, she's creative, and she's also up for another Pretty Impressive Blog Award. For more info on that, Click Here.
- Rachael. She's another prolific~and quite creative~blogger, and the Mom of three boys. She deserves the award on that basis, alone!
- Mannequin. She's been with me almost since the beginning. And her Frankie and Cupid are two of my Best Blogging Buddies!
- Anonymom. She has so much to say! And seriously believes in Sharing the Comment Love!
- Gombojav. She got Pop'rs for Christmas...What a present! To read more about that, Click Here!
So, there you have it. 200 Posts, A Great Giveaway, and some Bloggy Bling to celebrate! So, what are ya waiting for? Let's Get Poppin'!
