Once again, I have been nominated for a blogging award, and it is with deep gratitude that I graciously accept the 7×7 Award, as given to me by Aliza from Aliza’s Window. It truly is an honor, Aliza, that you would consider me worthy, and you have my most sincere thanks. :) And congratulations yourself on earning the award! ^_^
To be honest, this award has been one that I’ve been eyeballing for a while, simply because of it’s unique nature. Instead of just saying “oh look, another award!” and then posting links to seven other blogs, you actually have to share your own posts from seven different categories! Hence the 7×7 nature of the award. ;P
SO! Here are my seven nominations for this award (each is linked to one of my favorite posts):
4. Beth’s Hash
As I’ve said of them (and other writers) in the past, please take the time to read their work. They are all brilliant and talented, and it is my pleasure to share their work with you. :)
Now! On to the second half of this award!
1. Most Beautiful Piece: Delilah (I say it’s my most beautiful piece because, to me, it captures the bliss of young love, and the treasure that is memory).
2. Most Helpful: What’s Done is Done (Though it’s mainly a reflective piece, it helped me through a hard time, and it resonated with others).
3. Most Popular: Finding the Right Shoe (I was honestly surprised at how well received this was)!
4. Most Surprisingly Successful: Hair Trouble (This is actually my overall most viewed post; I get views nearly every day)!
5. Most Controversial: The Truth in Avatar (I generally avoid controversy, but this was the closest to controversial I could find :P).
6. Most Underrated: Still (I say it’s underrated because it’s one of my least viewed poems, and it’s one of my personal favorites).
7. Most Pride Worthy: A Throne of Shadows and The Wind, the Maiden, and the Sun (Now, I know it’s cheating to post two in one category, but I honestly could not choose between the two. “A Throne of Shadows” was one of the first poems I wrote that made me seriously pursue writing poetry, and “The Wind, the Maiden, and the Sun” was one of my very first short stories that I wrote years ago. I love them both so much, I simply cannot choose, so I’m afraid you’re just going to have to read them both :P).
And I believe that’s the end! Thanks again to Aliza for this wonderful award, and thanks to all of you for taking the time to read my work. I’m always amazed by the support I receive here, and I am ever grateful for it. :)
Have a wonderful day!
