The Great Comments Award

The Great Comments Award from Laura @ Daily Dodo and Hope Roberson.

Long, long ago, I received a blog award from someone. Then I received it from someone else. Now at last, I am accepting the award. Took my sweet time, didn't I?

What the award's about: People who leave great comments on our blogs! 
What I have to do: Award it to people who are great commenters on my blog! This task is made ever so much easier since I added that comments widget to my blog. Whee! Not that I needed that thing to remember who the people are who come back to my blog time and time again. But it does help to remind me, and it gives me links to people's profiles. 
Who I'm passing the award on to: Well, let's see... These people have left me the most comments according to my comment widget:

  1. Danette
  2. The Golden Eagle
  3. Brooke R. Busse
  4. Rachel Morgan
  5. Judie Quayle
  6. Michael @ hypotheticallywriting
  7. Lara Schiffbauer
  8. Lynda R. Young
  9. Jolene Perry
  10. Ruthie @ Live, Love, Laugh, Write!
  11. Deniz Bevan
  12. Laura @ Daily Dodo
  13. Clarissa Draper
  14. Kyra Lennon
  15. Emily R. King
  16. Ciara Knight
  17. Hope Roberson
  18. Julie Fedderson
  19. Rusty Webb
  20. Deborah Walker

And these are some extra people who have left me lots of comments over the years:

There are also others that have stopped by less often, but have left meaningful comments when they have. In particular I want to mention S.P. Mount, who visits only rarely but has been known to leave amazingly long and thoughtful comments. Anyway, today is about the Great Comments Award, which I am passing on to anyone mentioned this post who wants to accept it.

Thank you all for your great comments! I love this community. :)


  1. Thanks Trisha, that was amazing of you to mention me here, and thank you. Thank you also for your kind comments about my little cat.

    I do want you to know though, that I do come by your blog all the time - every-time I look through my list of bloggers actually - but oftentimes I have nothing much (really) to contribute; you do a lot of great music articles (music of which I know nothing) and you're always joining those crazy writing challenge things... so outside of saying 'good for you', and 'that's great'... and stuff, I don't always think that I CAN say anything more useful, and like you say, I do like to make it more meaningful when I do respond. But I got my eye on ya girl! LOL.

    Thanks again. Now how to figure out how to accept this award... never had a mention before... but here goes... "Ever since I was a little boy... I dreamed of this moment...."

    Thanks love, I much appreciate it.

    1. Aww, that's very cute - well I'm glad I could help your dream come true. hehe. You're welcome, and may your kitty cat rest in peace!

  2. cause I'm wordy, lol. and have a ready opinion on everything :-D

    1. Thankfully I love to hear your opinions! :)

      I know all too well how it is to be wordy, my rough drafts always reflect that. haha

  3. Thank you, Trisha! It's easy to leave comments on your blog because you write such fun and interesting posts! :)

  4. Thanks for thinking of me! Your blog is a joy to follow.

  5. Thank you, Trisha. It has been years, hasn't it?

  6. Aw, thanks so much! I feel honoured to be in that cloud of commenters!

  7. Congrats on the award!

    I feel honored to be an additional mention for the award. :)

  8. Congrats on the award!!

    Thank you for passing it to me, that was very nice.

  9. Congrats on the award!
    And thanks so much for passing on the great award, Trisha! I appreciate it.

  10. Do you know why I comment on your blog? Because you have awesome posts like this one! Thanks for thinking of me.

    1. And thank you for commenting on my blog! :D

  11. Congratulations on the award! And thank you for passing it on to me. :)

  12. Congratulations, three times over :)

  13. Congratulations on winning the award and THANK YOU for the recognition. I am generally not an award passer-onner but I kinda like the idea of passing this one on to my favorite commenters. Of course you KNOW you'll be on my list but you won't be expected to give again.

    1. I always pass 'em on, even if it takes me months to get around to it. But I totally get why you're not a passer onerer ;) It's tempting sometimes to just pretend it didn't happen.

  14. Hello lovely lady!
    I'm sorry I've been AWOL for a little while, life's been nutty! Thanks for the bounce back award-I'll say a thank you and not post it, but I do mightily appreciate it :)

    Happy weekend and hope we can catch up soon
