I don't think many of us who started blogging realized the distance our words and pictures would travel, or for that matter, what impact they would make on people. No, I think most of us just saw blogging as a way to put our thoughts down or to chronical an adventure, much like I did over the past three years. Imagine then my surprise, when I received a comment on my blog telling me to check out Forever a Jersey Girl, because she had something for me.

Being the trusting soul that I am, I scooted over to her blog and found that I was the recipent of the Friendship Award. The Friendship Award is given to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.

The aware further states that our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to those bloggers who must choose at least 5 more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Jersey Girl must be a silent reader of my blog, like I am to so many other blogs that I too read, but never leave a comment. I feel honored to have received this award and would like to award it to 5 other bloggers:

Scribbles and Scripts of a Reverent Bohemian - I love reading this blog, as Jennie always seems to be having fun, even when she doesn't realize just how great her life is to others looking in from the outside.

Cookie Crumbs - A relatively new blog that I found and enjoy, not only for the beautiful, and very delicious cookies that Laura makes, but for the big heart she has for animals of all kinds.

Justakrusen - A blog from an ex truck driver named Mark, who had to give up driving, not by choice, but by an injury, and trying to find his way back into the work force, but always with a sense of humor.

4 Little Men and Girly Twins - This is a guilty pleasure of mine. A blog that I read and never comment on, but enjoy none the less, because when I think my life may be hectic, all I have to do is read this one!

Tale from the Road, by the Fenian Godfather - This trucking blog is always a good read, and Joe's sarcastic sense of humor is just my cup of tea! (and no Joe......I know your blog is not out seeking to find friends or be charming, just accept this for what it is)

There you have it, enjoy stopping by these blogs if you are so inclined, I think you just might enjoy yourself, I know I always do.

Thanks for the mention. But darn you Diane.People are going to question your sanity if they follow the link.

I follow you because your writing is good and your always upbeat and present and represent trucking in a very nice way. But why you would follow me...?

Joe said...

Diane, you've got me all wrong. My blog was created specifically to find friends and be charming. I'm really a people person at heart... or something.

(Sarcastic sense of humor, eh? I read an article about what women think of a man with a sense of humor. Craig isn't reading this, is he?) ;)Thanks for the plug and take care out there.
