Blog Award: Always Here If You Need Me

If you don’t already know, I’m horrible about following up on blog awards. Seeing as I’m in a bit of a writing slump, I thought now would be a good time to make up for that, starting with: John Howell and his kind nomination for the Always Here if you Need Me award.

Some awards are fun, some are just silly, but this one… I really like the idea behind it. It’s a way to let a blogger know that they said the right thing at the right time. A writer can’t ask for much more than that. We’re all tiny voices in a world-sized room, constantly pushing to be heard above everyone else.

So I humbly thank you, John, and I’m ecstatic that you found some comfort in whatever word or two happened to spill from these fingers of mine.

Now, according to the award, half of my duty requires listing five things that make me happy. In an ever-changing order, they are:

  1. Warm cookies
  2. Lots of room to stretch
  3. Feelings of accomplishment
  4. Clever jokes
  5. That perfect melody/harmony

The other half requires me to nominate five bloggers who have, at one point or another, said just what I needed to hear. Not that all of you don’t have great things to say, but I’m forced to pick only five that left an impression. Please, please don’t feel obligated to respond unless you wish to do so:

  1. Oliver Gray
  2. Gabriela Blandy
  3. Thomas Cotterill
  4. Victoria Grefer
  5. Jae Dansie

Okay, back to my hole for a little while longer.

  1. there is NOTHING like a warm cookie! thanks for the nom 🙂

    1. You’re welcome! Warm cookies are my kryptonite.

  2. I love clever jokes myself, Phillip, but never was any good at telling them! I’m happy you found something of value on my blog. Thanks for the nomination. 🙂

    1. You’re welcome! I also have the same problem with jokes, Thomas. I can never seem to remember my favorites…

  3. Congratulations! A well deserved award! Feeling a sense of accomplishment certainly does it for me! Have a great weekend, Phillip. 🙂

    1. Thank you Jill! Have a great weekend as well. 🙂

  4. I’m really glad we made-blog friends, and then real, internet-friends. You’re the man, I’m honored you’d think enough of me to mention me here, and thanks for encouraging me to stretch into all that room in my brain.

    1. Here’s to hoping we can complete the trifecta and meet in person some day. I wouldn’t have grown, and still be growing, if it weren’t for you and your honeyed words (read that in the Skyrim voice-over voice).

  5. […] big thank you to the honest and poetic Phillip for nominating me for an award: ‘always there if you need me’, and for other bloggers […]
