7 x 7, Baby

Hi, everyone :) First off, I want to thank everyone for the well wishes for my sickie in the house. I have all of the best blog people :)

On that note, I feel completely weird about me not being able to blog hop the past couple of days, today included. I'm about to run out to take said sickie to a doctor's appointment so I can't run around and say hi like I want to. But I will, and I really appreciate you all's comments, so please keep them coming :)

Today, I want to give a special thanks to Krista who has a great writing related blog called I Take the Pen, which you all should check out. She was nice enough to give me this award:

I'm supposed to match a blog post of mine to each descriptor with a link and then give the award to some awesome people. So here goes!

Most beautiful: Most Wanted Book Plots: I'd like to seemore of these please: because I asked for books matching certain criteria, and I received so many responses from so many nice people wanting to help me. It was a beautiful thing.

Most Helpful: I'd say Writtle Me Your Writing Tools, because I gave some people new tools to use with their writing.

Most Popular: According to Blogger, my post popular post right now is 1st Campaigner Challenge. It had a lot of traffic from other great campaigners

Most Controversial: Decision Made/YA sub-genre roll call: Because I announced there my "controversial" decision to self-publish Glittering Ashes

Most Surprisingly Successful: that'd have to go my "most popular" post too, 1st Campaigner Challenge. I couldn't believe all the nice responses!

Most Underrated: It's IFI time!: This was a mini post directing you to an awesome cartoon about the writing industry. It was early on in my blogging career, and I doubt that many people heeded my words about it's greatness lol

Most Prideworthy: I AM NOW (self) PUBLISHED: GlitteringAshes: Because this is the post where I announced Glittering Ashes being launched into the universe :)

That was fun. Thanks again, Krista! Now to give it to well-deserving peoples.

Hmmm….How about:

Becca at Nerd Girl Reads and Writes (an absolute fave of mine since before I started this blog)

So be sure to check all of these blogs to see their own links, and even if they've already done this award, they will still be directing you to even more awesome people. 

Now to leave you with a song to write by...I chose "Wine Red" by The Hush Sound. I know I just did the Hush Sound, but choosing "Lighthouse"  by them somehow got "Wine Red" stuck in my head all of last night. I sang the opening like I was receiving gold coins to do so all around the house. My poor fiance...


  1. Thanks, Kelley. I am soooooo bad with posting awards, but I'll try and pass this on soon. Thanks again.

  2. Congratulations on the award! And I'm so sorry that I haven't been commenting like I should. (Busy busy busy.) I hope that your sickie gets one hundred percent better soon!

  3. Congrats on your award, Kelley! And I hope the illness monster is banished from your home soon!

  4. 1) Congratulations on the award!
    2) In case you missed it, I awarded you something yesterday. :)
    3) Yes! Someone else that loves The Hush Sound! :D

  5. Thank you Kelly! I'm really excited to do this! look for it next Wednesday :)

  6. I'll definitely be checking out these posts (since I'm fairly new to your site). Congrats! :D

  7. Ahh, thanks Kelley! I'll get on it asap.

  8. my favorite is most pridesworthy. i kin relate:)

  9. Congrats on the award. Don't feel bad about cutting back on your blogging, we'll all still be here and the sickie's gotta come first :-)

  10. It was interesting reading how you felt about your own blog posts. I wonder if we should repost some of our early ones. I know that some of mine were a bit iffy until I found my blog voice but others are possibly worth a second try now I have more followers. It's worth a thought. The ultimate in recycling!

  11. Congrats on the award and those all sound like fantastic posts. I love the fact that you are self-publishing and I will be following you to see how it goes since I am thinking about dipping a toe in the water. I have sickies at home too, it really cuts into the writing time and I'm afraid it will be after me too! Congratulations again!

  12. Congrats on all your recent reports. I just went through the posts you mentioned on this post and enjoyed them all.
