AWOL, or An RWL News Extra

OK, so I promised you a post this morning and I went AWOL. Your disappointment is almost palpable. I can scarcely field all of the comments and emails of concern and outrage.

At the risk of causing your further shock and greater alarm, I'll be completely honest and just admit that I blew you all off today for work. Actual work--for pay, not just bloggy love and comments. Now, I always go to work on Tuesdays, although you probably don't notice because I've been typing up posts ahead of time. As much as I wanted to type up that culinary story I have--and I will tell it, I promise--I have been distracted by the possibility of a new journalism gig that I will share more about later.

For now, though, before we get too far off the "bloggy love" topic, I would be remiss not to mention a couple of nice accolades passed on to me from some of my favorite fellow bloggers.

Holly at 504 Main passed along to me the coveted "I Give Good Blog" award. If you haven't met Holly yet, go do it now! She's hit the ground running in her new gig as a blogger, and she's a faithful commenter and wonderful guest during her frequent visits to her follower's sites.

In keeping with good blogging etiquette, I am passing the honor along to my latest follower, Kathleen.

Next, I'm indebted to Charisse and Holly of Life Laugh Latte for bestowing the "Honest Scrap" award to me. Charisse and Holly specialize in chatty video segments that make you feel like a guest at their coffee date. Their discussions are often thought provoking, sometimes motivational, and always entertaining! The "Honest Scrap" award means all the more for receiving it from these talented women!

I am passing the "Honest Sarap" honor on to Deb.

As always, the rules for claiming the above awards are to link back to the blogger who gave it to you, and to pass the encouragement along make another blogger's day!

Regularly scheduled programming returns tomorrow morning with One Line Wednesday, slightly modified edition!
