A Sort of Pulitzer for Bloggers

I was given the Superior Scribbler Award by the lovely Jenny. Thank you every so much my dear, it truly mean a lot coming from such a avid reader and decerning reviewer.

Here are the rules :
■ Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
■ Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
■ Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
■ Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
■ Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

Here are my nominees:

A lovely new award from Corra. Thank you so very much my dear, your support is invaluable and I appreciate it more than you'll every know.

Corra here in her own words about the award she as created:

There is such an amazing collection of talent out there, and I know I've only just begun to meet people. I'm pleased and honored to talk with you all and collaborate about the journey to publication. (Or simply to learn from you, as many of you are far beyond me in that journey.)

Please accept the 'Creative Writer Award' with no strings attached. You can post it within an awards page, sidebar, or new post; you can link it to me and pass it on to writers you know who host writing blogs, or you can simply read this note with my thanks attached and do nothing further. This is just intended as a gesture to further the premise 'writer' within 'blogger.' I'd love to see more writers acknowledged for the craft! Because we all are writers:

I've chosen these five authors pass this award to.


  1. Thank you so much, Simone! To receive an award from a wonderful friend and writer is always a great pleasure. I must say, as well, that I am eager to visit these other blogs. Thanks again for thinking of me! :-)

  2. Simone, you are about as sweet as sweet comes... And congratulations, first of all, on your award. And thank you for passing one on to me. I do appreciate your thought, and I thank you for being such a wonderful blogger friend. :-)


  3. Congrats Simone, you sure deserve this Pulitzer ;)
    have a great week

  4. Aw, you really made my day with the award! I'm putting it on ASAP and passing it on as well! Thanks again for having such a beautiful blog with great art and writing! It's an inspiration.

  5. Oh goodness! Thank you so much! It's been lovely to have you stop by and participate at my blog too! :)

  6. Thanks so much, Simone! I love the pictures you use to identify everyone- I'll never get tired of seeing my name linked with Hatshepsut.

    Thanks for making my day!

  7. Congrats on your award. You give us all such good reads with you're beautiful writing, along with some beautiful pictures to look at and let your mind wonder with.

    Have a blessed day and week!

  8. Simone, you are a complete, absolute star! The award couldn't have come at a better time and I'm so very touched and honoured to receive it. Thank you very much.

    I'm delighted also for you in your award - it's so very much deserved. You take such time and make such a fantastic effort to make your blog beautiful and meaningful to people, and you succeed every time. Well done!

    Oh, must be the first time you've had an astronaut on your blog! Would have looked much better with a delightful jacket and silk scarf!

    I'll make a point of reading the other blogs you've recommended.

    And congratulations on your own award, you definitely are a "Superior Scribbler". Your blog is like an island of calm in the vast stormy sea of the internet.

  15. Wow, thanks for the award! I'll see if I can fulfill the obligations. I'm not as active a blogger as you are, so I'm having trouble giving the award to five other bloggers. But it's an honor, so thanks.

  16. Congratulations! You certainly deserve them!

  17. Congratulations, Simone, I can't think of anyone else I follow that deserves this award more than you. Your encouragement and generosity to everyone is inspirational.

  19. My thanks to all of you for coming by and wishing me well and my congratulations to each of the nominees.
    Warm regards to all, my love,
