A Blog With Substance


I've received an award and I'm most happy about it. I've been recognized as a Blog with Substance by Scrubby Brush. I thank Cheryl, my Australian friend.

I am to pick 10 people who I think have blogs of substance. Wow, was that hard to narrow down. I know there are many more I could have mentioned, but these are the ones I came up with.

First, Catbird Scout, for I regard her as one of the finest writers out there. I know she already has one but I just had to put her down from me too.

Moments of Mine who always posts a beautiful quiet time showing us with her camera and her comments stories about her walks and her grandchildren .

At the Farm if you enjoy hearing about beautiful horses and farm life in general. She brings you there.

Weaver of Grass always has a great topic for discussion and thoughtful comments. I have always loved the way she calls her husband “the farmer”

Midlife Jobhunter shares her family, travel, views of life using a very fine sense of humor. Very Erma Bombeck like. Can be both hilarious at times and sardonic at others. Great writer. She will go somewhere in the writing field someday.

Sixtyfivewhatnow writes about many different topics but is always an interesting read. She tells about her views using the lake as a metaphor and about her trips.

Beyond the Diapers and Spills writes on a variety of subjects that inspire great discussions. Her latest on marriage is great.

A Walk in My Shoes gives a lot of information on how to get published as she is a published author. I have always loved her opening picture of all the beautiful shoes and it is such an apt title.

Wander to the Wayside has shared her life experiences as an adopted child with all of us in a marvelous detailed way. She made us feel.

Can't forget On My Own for she is a loyal friend to many. She offers valuable friendship and in her posts she tells of her happiness in everyday living. She is an inspiration to us all to live in the moment the best that we can.

I hope you will visit some of my choices and Cheryl at Scrubby Brush. You won't be disappointed.

Congratulations, Bernie - you are definitely a blog of substance! And thanks so much for the acknowledgement - it's much appreciated! I know a lot of people consider their place 'award free', but I'm not one of them yet - I'm always tickled pink to know that someone has enjoyed their visit with me.

I, too, enjoy reading the many "blog personalities" and seeing the interests and photography of others. Yours reminds me of my mother talking to me and I just love that!!!

Oh Bernie you are so sweet, thank you. I think you truly deserve this award, we have all learned so much from you and I agree the blogs you have chosen are wonderful blogs of substance.....now mine I really don't have much substance, I just make my way through life trying to encourage everyone along my way, it is all I know how to do.....I do care so very much about my blog friends and you have chosen several of my favorites. Hope you and Bill are doing well, thank you for thinking of me, big hugs my friend......:-)

Since you honored me with you words, I have new followers and new comments. Thank you so much.

I was going to shut down my blog because I thought I had reached my growth potential. Thank you for sending people my way, maybe I do have something worth saying!

Valerie said...

Hello Bernie, lovely to meet you. I just popped across from the other Bernie's blog. She speaks very highly of you and now I can see why. Hope I won't get muddled by the same names....

Hello Bernie, I had to call by after reading about you over at Bernie's blog. A blog of substance the award says, and it was right. Well done.

Oz Girl said...

Congrats on your award, and I'm certain there are many other blog awards that your blog deserves!!

I know I've been a bit absent in blogland lately, at least as far as visiting my friends. I have a new job, and between that and all the summertime chores, I'm barely keeping up with a few new posts on my own blog! I'm sure as we get back into winter, I'll have more "inside" time.

I still love your blog, it's one of my favorites for sure! :-)

(And I see you have a new dog too?! Good for you! One of my fav breeds, such a wonderful personality.)
