Shout-Outs, Awards and Kudos - Thanks!

Over the last few weeks, I've been honored with awards and kudos from a few bloggers. I wanted to get Brown out of my system before I acknowledged all the blog love, so here's a slightly belated recap.

Featured Blog of the Week - Hooray! Made my Week!

Last week, I got a big surprise from one of my favorite bloggers - J.B. of It's Gonna Take More Than a Hamburger to Make Me Happy fame. She made Don't Be a Slut her featured blog of the week. It was such a delicious surprise.

I love J.B.'s blog. She's a good writer, she's funny and there's something really heartfelt about her writing. Most of her stories take place in restaurants. She works in a deli, and her family used to own a restaurant. So she's got lots of stories about insane customers. My favorite is her rant about mock chicken.

She's also got her own Brown-like saga, about her breakup with her ex.

Kreativ Blogger Award

Enchantress of Days of My Life blog was kind enough to give me the Kreativ Blogger Award. She lives in Atlanta and has a warm-hearted, slice-of-life blog.

The rules are:
1. Post the award on your blog and link to the person who gave you the award.
2. List seven things you love.
3. Pass it on! List seven blogs you love and let those people know you've given them the award.

Seven Things I Love
  1. Blogging
  2. Chocolate
  3. Mindless TV (America's Next Top Model, Oprah, Grey's Anatomy)
  4. The Pacific Ocean
  5. My church
  6. Lingerie
  7. Hummingbirds and flowers
Seven Blogs I Love
Since the name of the blog is "Kreativ," I've tried to pick blogs that are unusual or different in some way and that haven't, as far as I know, been honored with this award in the past.
  1. The Recessionista - her blog is about shopping, dining, dressing and living well on the cheap. She doesn't just dish about deals, she includes witty commentary.

  2. The Lotus Sutra Chronicles - a travel diary of sorts, it features interesting photos and observations from an American(?) woman who currently lives in Korea (and is planning to head to Europe soon).

  3. Jane Minogue - Huffington Post - an interesting take on women's issues that ties today's hot topics back to their historical corollaries in medieval Europe.

  4. The Spicy Princess - Shhhh, this blog is everything you ever wanted to know about the mechanics of sex but were too embarrassed to ask. The Spicy Princess offers tips on how to please your partner as well as reviews of various sensual products.

  5. Luscious Sealed Lips - part dialogue, part stream of consciousness, part poetry, part narrative, this blog is about love, relationships and life.

  6. How I Changed Careers - essentially a business blog, but with a more personal twist. An entrepreneur sharing how he went from practicing law to launching his own line of body-care products.

  7. Remembering Paris - a survivor of child sexual abuse, incest and domestic violence tells her story.

Thank you for the award...
Gratitude and courage are the watch words of my life.
To answer your question...yes, I am an American, but I guess even with my writing I am not often pegged for being American.

Frankly...I would just like to be pegged as humane person.

Kindest Regards from Daegu, South Korea.

Marilyn
The Lotus Sutra Chronicles
PS...I will pass the award on.
