  1. Good on ya Danica. Your group initiative ‘Blog Dylan’ was one of the year’s highlights.

    Though I don’t do awards, I’m sincerely gratified to appear twice in your list (though Lonely Keyboards is pretty lonely at present!).

    Keep writing!

    1. ‘Blog Dylan’ was so much fun! Thanks again for helping make it happen.

      Both of your blogs are deserving of this award, and I’m afraid I must be behind in my reading of VC and Lonely Keyboards. Soon to be remedied!

      Thanks, I need to do that!

    Congrats on the award Danica! And thanks very much for the mention and nomination. I feel like everyone I would have nominated, you have already done for me. However, if I get the chance this weekend, I will try to respond to the questions asked. Thanks again!

    1. Thank you, JP! Congratulations to you as well. Hmm… I didn’t think of potential overlap, but blogs have been nominated for awards by more than one blogger before and it seems ok. Hopefully you’ll be able to participate and your responses to the questions would be great reading! My pleasure. 🙂

  3. Wonderful! Thanks again for the mention and nomination. Although I don’t get involved, I do sincerely appreciate it.

    Thanks for the time you spend over at my blog and for the comments. And, regarding your answers here, I can tell you that as well as enjoying your writing, I’ve found inspiration in your posts. Keep it up!!

    1. Thank you, J! I understand not doing awards but a shoutout is always a good think, I believe.

      Your blog is one of the best and I’m glad whenever you have a new post. I’m delighted that you enjoy my writing and find a bit of inspiration. Thank you. 🙂

  4. I’ve been thinking of you, hope your small break was a good one. It’s funny…I took my Awards Free sign down to accept this award from Robert. What a lovely surprise to get passed to me. I will take the challenge. Help me remember how to copy the badge again.
    Hugs.

    1. Thanks very much, M! My small break has been good but busy… which I guess is good? I’m thrilled that you’re accepting awards and not at all surprised you’ve received multiple nominations. Copy the badges by right-clicking each and then saving the file. To include in your post, add/upload the file to your media files.
      Hugs. 🙂

      1. Ok instructions will take and see if tech geek can get to work. Glad things are going well. What profession are you in or self-employed? I know nothing about you!!!!!! You need to be my next interview blogger. I’m posting David Kanigan next week. Tell me your will to have some fun, not to personal fun with an interview!!!!!! Hugs.

  5. Congratulations on your award, Danica! Truly well deserved.
    And thank you – as always – for nominating me (Thanks also for considering themedievil as well, altho I am taking an extended break from my novel)
    I will have the ideal sunshine-y Post finished this weekend! (Music and gifs already prepared – I can now fill the gaps with answers to your wonderful questions!)
    At this point, I would say: “Keep up the good work”, but don’t need to, u do anyway, making this writing lark look so easy! 😉
    Bless u

    1. Thank you, Brad! Your sunshine-y blogs and personality are very well deserving of this award, break or no break from themedievil.

  6. I like that perspective on how to react when someone you like posts something you don’t like.
    THough it doesn’t quite apply here, as I like both this blogger & this post!
    Congrats on the award & thanks for the tip of the hat, enjoy the weekend!

  7. Hi Danica
    I can’t remember if I congratulated you on the well deserved award. Do you use Windows? I’m MAC and I can’t get the instructions to work for copying the badge. I’ll keep digging, it’s been done before.
    Have a relaxing Sunday.

    1. Thank you, M! I’m not sure how the copy or download process would be different on a mac. I’ll see what I can find out and we’ll figure it out.
      Thanks and hope yours has been relaxing and lovely. 🙂
