Interview, Awards and Blog Love

Over the last couple of months, I've been silently bathing in the glow of blog love. I didn't want to interrupt my Virginity Diaries, so I saved it all up to share with you once I wrapped up that chapter. So, drumroll please, let the thank-yous and paying it forward begin.

My first in-depth interview, courtesy of Paula's Pleasure Blog
Paula is a mother of two grown children, and she hosts lingerie parties. Her blog features a variety of sex-education articles and interviews, and I was honored when she asked to explore why I started Don’t Be A Slut.

The Lemonade Stand Award, courtesy of Black.girl.Thoughts
Cheron, author of Black.girl.Thoughts, stands out in my mind for two reasons: 1) she's got a kick-ass blog and 2) she was the first person to read Don't Be a Slut start-to-finish in one afternoon ... and to comment on almost every single post while I marveled at her tenacity.

Like me, she's an autobiographical blogger, and her story of how she lost her virginity is tragic, sad and painfully real.

I'm passing the illustrious Lemonade Stand Award on to:

Bri & Russell, congrats! Here's how to pass the Lemonade Award on:
  1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
  2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude and/or gratitude.
  3. Link to your nominees within your post.
  4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
  5. Nominate your favorites, and link to this post.
The Superior Scribbler Award, courtesy of It's Gonna Take More Than a Hamburger to Make Me Happy
Nothing makes me guffaw louder than J.B.'s blog. J.B. works in the restaurant industry, and these days every weird person in the universe, from Cross-Dressing Santa to Strawberry Shortcake, is causing her strife.

I'm passing the award on to:
  • Black.girl.Thoughts. As I mentioned above, she's a great writer.

  • The Dirty Girl Diaries: I just discovered this blog today. It's the story of a 1970s NYC wild child who was bartending in a strip bar by age 17. Jodi's a great writer. You can taste the cheap champagne, smell the musk and hear the cacophony.

Jodi & Cheron, here are the Superior Scribbler blog rules:

  1. Pass the award on to 5 deserving bloggy friends.
  2. Name the person who passed the award on to you & link back to his or her blog.
  3. Display the award on your blog.
  4. Link to this post which explains how the award came to be & add your name to the Mr. Linky List at the end of that post.
