WIT :: Wonderful Team Member Readership


I will never tire of these, even though I have not necessarily expanded my library of bloggers and will probably keep nominating the same ones. This one, however, is different because it has nothing to do with who I read but who reads me. I am phenomenally grateful for my regular viewers and happily give them a resounding shout-out of appreciation. I wouldn’t have kept up with this blog for this long without them.

The Rules

1. The Nominee of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award shall display the logo on his/her post/page and/or sidebar.

2. The Nominee shall nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days (1 week) – this can be done at any rate during the week. It can be ALL on one day or a few on one day and a few on another day, etc.

3. The Nominee shall name his or her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post or on posts during the 7 day (1 week) period.

4. The Nominee shall make these rules, or amended rules keeping to the spirit of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, known to each reader s/he nominates.

5. The Nominee must finish this sentence and post: ”A Great reader is…”


The Awesomeness

(in alphabetical order except for BFF**)

**BFF aka Lorelei – who doesn’t have a regular blog but ought to keep up with one because she’s one of the most thoughtful, thought-provoking, encouraging people I know and she needs an audience of more than just me

Amanda @ Book Badger – who is new to me but seems heartily enthusiastic and prompt and present in her comments

Anne @ SpyGirl – who is quirky and fun and wise

Caitlin @ Greater than Rubies – who is sincere and stable without being preachy or pedantic

Connie @ Snow in the Air – who thinks I’m funny (go figure!) and appreciates my writing as well as my pictures

Dolly @ Substance AND Style – who is deep and provocative

Gracey @ Fashion for Giants – who is witty and self-deprecating on her blog but is super supportive in her comments

Jan @ Fort Smith Stylista – who just needs to adopt me already so I can bask in her warmth and pure goodness

Lisa @ Respect the Shoes – who is creative and real

Patti @ Not Dead Yet – who is always positive and affirming and welcoming in all ways

Seeker @ Searching the Inner Me – who still sees the wonder in life

Selah @ A Bibliophile’s Style – who is my non-judgmental rock in all things

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas – who is cheerful and sunny and never fails to put a smile on my face

Val @ Muse Fondue – who is wry and clever and living my in-an-alternate-universe life


The Prompt

(in the form of a pseudo diamante)

 A great reader is…
sincere and reflective
encouraging without being sycophantic
constructively critical without being hurtful
responsive and discerning
a true friend

    Maricel! You are so kind. I’m really glad that Selah has introduced us and you’ve joined the little community over at GTR. I always look forward to your witty and interesting comments, and love seeing what outfit you’ve come up with for the remix link up. Thanks again for the sweet words! Have a wonderful day!

    How great is this! Thank you so much, Darling Maricel! Such an honor for an old slow-poke … sorry for the delay in reply. This will be fun, and I will start the process in next week’s post! I can’t do another “tell us 27 fascinating facts about yourself” kind … but this, I can do! And you placed me in such good company! Thank you again.

  3. It’s very easy to be a great reader of a great blog. Ever since you found me and invited me to find you, I’ve loved reading your blog. Thank you for including me!

    Awwwww, thanks! I’m sort of a delinquent reader because I didn’t even look at any blogs yesterday (I was fighting, then making up with my sewing machine).

    I love reading your blog! Your smile and fashion-show poses and well-thought-out posts always brighten my day! I need to thank Jan for pointing me in your direction.

    I love your diamante poem! Do you remember when we had to write our reading biographies? I wrote, like, three pages…you did a haiku. Yours was soooo lovely. I’m pleased to know that you think so highly of me; the feeling is absolutely mutual.

  6. Aww, thank you, Maricel! I doubt my little blog would have survived this long without your constant support and encouragement. So, thank YOU for being an awesome blog reader!

  7. Thank you so much, Maricel, it’s an honor to be selected by a blogger as charming and talented as you! xox

    Nicely put 🙂

    Also, just in case, I don’t mind if my spot goes to another deserving person since I have the award but appreciate the shoutout 🙂

  9. Aww thank you hunny! That means a lot to me. I’m always doing my best to be around in the comments and put out regular content, so I’m pleased it shows. I’m so glad I came across your blog Maricel and that you enjoy mine 😀

  10. Thanks so much Maricel! Can I just say how very much I appreciate you!!! You, my friend, have these wonderful women in your circle because you ARE generous, thoughtful, wry, witty, funny, kind, and enthusiastic. We’s the lucky ones!

    Maricel, my dear I’m really moved by this nomination (and the comment on my blog)!! It’s such an honor for me, thank you so much!!!!
    You are precious and kind!!

  12. Connie Snow* says:

    I DO think you’re funny. In fact, it’s pretty funny that you would nominate ME, one of the Laziest Bloggers around. Thank you Sweetie. Now I have to go waste some time not blogging.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
