New Friends/Family in the Blogosphere and Passing Along the Blog Lovin’

I’ve had an extremely busy week and haven’t kept up my usual blogging and commenting on blogs — I’ll be back in the swing of things next week.  Just a short post today to pass along another list of great bloggers out there and to thank Silverfox at C’est la Vie for including me and bestowing two awards on me — Inspiring Blogger Award and Versatile Blogger along to me — thank you!

Also, Shimmeshine gave me the Inspiring Blogger Ward and the One Lovely Blog Award — thank you!   Jensinewall awarded me with the 3×3 Thanks for Writing Award — thank you!!  And, Maribel gave me the Sunshine Award — thank you, Maribel.

Please click on the links above and visit these wonderful, nice folks’ blogs — they’re very inspiring bloggers (and very nice people) and deserve readers.

I know that there are some “rules” attached to all these awards, but I feel as if you all know more than enough about me, (click here, here and here if you want to know more) so I’ll skip that one and just bestow these awards on all the new bloggers/followers listed at below.  Should you want to list a few random/interesting things about yourself (7-12), then please do so. I always love reading about you.  Put these awards on your blog and pass it on to other great bloggers — if that’s what you’d like.  If not, just display them proudly.  No strings attached. :).

I’ll “bestow” these on others in the future when I can get caught up.  You just have those weeks sometimes; this is one of mine this week!

If you missed my previous blogs where I’ve spread the blog lovin, click here and here.  I’ll be listing more blogs in the coming weeks — as always, thank you dear bloggers/followers for stopping by the Banter and I hope you’ll continue to visit.

Serenity in the City.  Margarita displays gorgeous pics of Manhattan with some very inspiring words.

Carr Party of Five.  Weird, wonderful, quirky and funny.

The Write Transition.  Carrie is a writer who’s very funny and is about to be published.  She shares all kinds of trials and tribulations about being a writer and has a nemesis, Mr. Nasty Pants, who shows up everyone once in awhile to create self-doubt.

Totally Knew That.  Nicole is a screenwriter from New York living in LA, trying to live her dream while acting as a nanny to her two kids.

Mother Sugar.  A community of women sharing “Family, love, career, hopes and dreams, not having it all, figuring it out, that feminist rant after you’ve iced a three layer sponge cake.”

Sorting It Out.  Connie’s a former pleaser, now she just speaks her mind.

Operation Have it All.  A mother “chronicling being just that with “meetings, memos and many margarita.”

Healthy Warrior.  Carolyn’s a healthcare pro dedicated to spreading the healthy lifestyle (mind, body and spirit).

She Can’t Be Serious.  A full-time working mom (desperately seeking humor in everyday life) who’s more than that and likes to refer to herself in third-person.

Menu By Vicky.  A runner, foodaholic and sugar addict who blogs about all that and more.

Stay tuned for more info about other phenomenal bloggers in the coming weeks and have a great weekend everyone!

  10. Dear Brigette,

    What a lovely surprise to be mentioned in your blog!

    It’s a good thing I read your blog everyday…Wordpress didn’t let me know you had Pinged me..(Is that right?)
    I hate it when services that I pay absolutely nothing for..have glitches. The NERVE!! 🙂

    I love your description of my blog…I hope I can live up to it!

    And, it goes without saying, how much I enjoy your words…and your kindness is refreshing in this crazy blogosphere. This is the song I am singing right now:

    Thank you so much!!!!♥♥♥
    Love, Lisa

  18. Thank you for pinging my blog… I have to say, I’ve hit a wall lately. I think I poured so much into the first two months of blogging, I needed a break. I really appreciate the recognition and now look forward to keeping up with you! Any tips on getting back into the swing – besides the old standby, just keep writing? I’d love to hear there’s a magic margarita I can whip up…

    Posted by operationhaveitall | June 10, 2012, 9:44 am
    • Thank you! I know what you mean. Sometimes other things take precedence and then it’s difficult to get back into the rhythm of blogging. I intend to this week! :). Let me know if you find that magic margarita recipe….
