The road ends, but the journey continues...

The Eclectic Blogger Award

Sometime In July, writer Sue Ranscht of Space, Time and Raspberries nominated me for the Eclectic Blogger Award. She’s the creator of the serial fiction series, Elliot’s Adventures. I’ve enjoyed reading these stories and heartily recommend them to readers of this post.
Started by The Shameful Narcissist, the Eclectic Blogger Award
The Eclectic Blogger Award  “…is presented to those blogs that are both eclectic and engaging, where conversation flows freely, where new and different ideas are always welcome. It’s to recognize blogs that always have interesting content to match the amazing, creative, and hard-working creators that make them possible. These are the blogs that inspire you to read, watch, play, and/or create content to further enhance not only the blogosphere but also the general zeitgeist, because they themselves enrich it with their existence.”
The Rules

  • Nominate whomever and however many bloggers you want for the award.
  • Share links from your blog for some of your favorite (or most eclectic!) posts.
  • Laura’s addendum: I am including links to some of my favorite posts on these nominees’ blogs.

      Thanks, Tierney!
      BTW: love those tango stripes!

  2. Andy

    Thanks for the recommendations-always gold to discover other great blogs.

    • Andy

      I meant always good-but gold seems rather apt!

      • laura bruno lilly

        Aha, I figured you being the poet, used a great word in choosing ‘gold’ over ‘good’. The creative mind never ceases to amaze me!

    • laura bruno lilly

      You’re welcome!

  3. Heather

    Congratulations Laura! What a wonderful award to be nominated for, and one you definitely deserve. 🙂 Your blog is amazing. xx And thank you so much for the nomination, and for sharing Dizzy’s little video. 🙂 We really appreciate it. xxx

      Dizzy’s vid helps to spread greater awareness on a topic many haven’t a clue about.
      Take care, dear one.

  4. Susan Ranscht

    Adding some of your favorite posts from your nominees’ blogs is a beautiful reflection of your heart, Laura. I love that about you. <3

      Thanks! You might be interested in Jennie’s posts on the making and traveling to exhibitions of her classroom’s Peace Quilt.

  7. L. Marie

    And I see that the rest of my comment didn’t go through. If it does, consider this a double. I mentioned that I’m glad you were nominated by Sue, who showed good taste in doing so. I’m grateful to have met you through your blog. I keep listening to “You Got To Run (Spirit of the Wind)” because of one of your posts.

    • laura bruno lilly

      ‘Blush and Smile’ back atchya!

  8. L. Marie

    Oh, Laura! I’m grateful to be among such illustrious company. If it’s okay, I’ll just blush and smile here for now.

    • laura bruno lilly

      I guess I forgot to add that’s it’s a-okay to not ‘participate’. For myself, that’s a given!
