You've Been Inked Awards!!!

Who is it today? Who am I sending out my ever-loving gratitude and thanks for following my blog?

Today, I begin my list of First-Evers.

1. The first ever person to follow my blog and the first ever to post a comment on my Ink in the Book and the host of the first ever contest I entered is

Sharon Bayliss

2. The first ever person to give me an award was Tuere Morton, but she doesn't follow my blog. I wanted to say hi and thank you, anyway!

   The first award given to me by a follower is

   Kimberly over at The Art of Infiltration

3. The first person to give me a shout out on their blog is

Janette Doleres

4. The first person to add me to their blog roll (maybe the only person) is

Julie, over at A thought Grows

5. The first person to vote for my first ever flash fiction piece (here on my blog, just is case you want to add your vote...hehe) is

Alex J. Cavanaugh

Sharon, Kimberly, Janette, Julie, and Alex, (and Tuere!!)

YOU'VE BEEN INKED!

  5. Woohoo! Thank you for inking me. Lol--I just like the way that sounds. ;-)

    I appreciate the award and just know that Julie isn't the only person to have you on their blog roll--I have you on there, too, from the day I started following your site.

    Blessings to you and yours!

  6. Adding Ink In The Book to my blog roll was a no-brainer--- that way I can make sure I keep current with your postings. I am honored and touched to be included with such fine blogs. Reading your quality postings is a selfish act for me-- I need all the encouragement, learning and inspiration I can gather on this journey. And you certainly provide that. Thanks. Julie
