Apparently I'm a Schmoozer! (yeah, what's new?!). See my award, top right!
One of my regular commenters, the lovely, talented, and frequently overworked Notwithstanding Nicola has nominated me for a Schmooze award, as I am one of her most regular commenters. Plus I say nice things about her socks, not things like 'Check out this great poker site win $$$$$' etc.
'The award is designed to promote blog-friendships by rewarding those who are good Schmoozers, schmoozing being 'the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection". Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogsphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship'.
And so now it is my turn to bestow this honour. I have thought long and hard about it, and although there are many deserving bloggers out there, I have decided that the award will go to *roll of drums* Anna, of Anna's Yarn Mansion.
Not only is Anna a prolific blogger and a very talented knitter, she ALWAYS finds time to respond to any comment I leave on her site. She has just finished a gorgeous Lizard Ridge Afghan for which she won first prize at her local state fair, and besides which, she seems to LOVE buttons on her blog. I figured she's in need of another one. Well done Anna!
