Rockin'..............


Mimi Lennox at Mimi Writes has chosen me for a 'Rockin' Girl Blogger' award - how cool is that? She wrote such a fantastic review of my blog I didn't recognise myself! Thankyou Mimi.

Mimi herself has received this award twice - one from Linda at Are We There Yet? and the other from Turnbaby(As the world turns). If anyone deserves this award it is Mimi for her rockin' efforts getting the Peace Globe movement up and at 'em on the 6th June this year. I only took part this year, being a new blogger, but Mimi started the movement a few years ago. If you haven't got your Peace Globe yet, get yourself over to Mimi's and get one!

Apparently the rules for the 'Rockin' Girl Blogger' award state that if you're tagged, you get that spiffy little badge at the top of this post and then tag five other chicks who you think rock.

This will be hard choosing just five so I have taken some time to think about it and if I haven't chosen you please don't be offended, you know I wouldn't hurt you for the world.

#1 Queenie at Queenie's Random Ramblings has got to be my first choice. Queenie and I been friends for 17 years, since we met on holiday in Turkey. We have done some rockin' together over those years and, though neither of us can physically rock at the moment, we are both determined to get it together again in the not too distant future. Queenie is a great wordsmith and her blog never shows the pain she has endured. Rock on my lovely friend.

#2 Catch (A Penny For Your Thoughts) never fails to entertain with tales of her grandchildren, her Mom, who lives with her, and friends. She throws in little jokes and poems and I just love to visit her blog, but I would really like to visit her in real life 'cos she's got a pool and I just bet she has some rockin' pool parties.

#3 Val at 123Valerie Strikes Again is the ultimate rock chick in my opinion. She's sassy, bright, beautiful and I've heard her sing and play the guitar, check it out here. Besides all that her blog is entertaining, sometimes funny, and totally rocks.

#4 Laney (Miss Understood) at A Sideways Look At Womanhood certainly looks the part in her profile photo. She's feisty and her writing can have you laughing and crying all within the same post. On 30th September she will be running 10Km raising money for Cancer Research and anyone who raises money for such a deserving charity certainly Rocks in my view.

#5 Claire at A Little Piece of Me has been offline for a short while and is now getting withdrawal symptoms, as are her readers! She usually keeps her fans on their toes by 'punishing' lurkers on her blog with wickedly funny pictures and virtual punishments. She also does Happy 100's where you get a public mention if you just happen to be the next 100th visitor. Claire also helped organise 'The Easter Bunny' egg hunt, to raise money for charity. Participants had to solve the daily (sometimes thrice daily) clues, by visiting blogs you probably would never have known about to solve the clues. At the end of the egg hunt all participants, whether they won or not, got a little chick button for their sidebar - mine's there if you take a look. I know this took a lot of Claire's time and energy and, as I've said before, anyone who gives up their time for charity 'Rocks' in my book.

Well these five girls 'Rock' as far as I'm concerned, so I hope they will display their button with pride and hopefully be able to choose five 'Rockin' Girl Bloggers' to pass it on to.

Good for you! Mimi's Blogging for Peace is a fabulous idea and I too was pleased to take part in it. Had a text from Claire last night; she's still not online and missing us all like crazy.

Linda said...

YAY on your award! I saw over at Mimi's that she had awarded you and I was just as pleased as punch. Had I been thinking clearly when I was awarded this three times I would have picked 15 people to give it and you would have been one of them!

Sometimes my brain doesn't work right but thank goodness Mimi's was!!

Rock on!!!
