A Running With Letters News Extra

As promised yesterday, today's post is all about keeping my readers posted. Let's start with a Running With Letters Event Reminder: One Line Wednesday debuts tomorrow! To get the gist of how it'll work, check out last Wednesday's post and get your one-liners all polished up and ready to post! I can't wait to read what my talented, creative readership comes up with!

Our next notable nugget comes in the form of this nice blog award that was passed on to me from Vicki at Frugal Mom Knows Best. Vicki is all about kids and crafts and inexpensive ways to connect the two! Thanks, Vicki, for passing along the virtual accolades!

Some of you have mentioned the increased "traffic" here, and it is exciting to see that there are people out there reading. During my two years in grad school, this blog was an outlet for me to keep writing. I wanted to develop a stronger readership, but lacked the time to to connect with other bloggers and develop online relationships. One of the best parts about my recent rediscovery of my pre-grad school life has been the opportunity to pack my virtual bags and make frequent forays into cyberspace. Along with accepting the above award comes the privilege of passing the honor on to other bloggers. So without further ado, Here's are the links to handful of bloggers who have made me feel welcome in my travels:

The Animator's Wife

Elizabeth@Finding Him Bigger

Kirsten@Living in a Girl's World
Jade@Tasting Grace
I Wonder Wye
Holly@504 Main (This one is kind of a cheat, because Holly already received this award a couple days before me...but she's great, and you should totally check her out!)

(For the above named recipients: The rules of the "One Lovely Blog Award" are accept the award, post it on your blog along with the name of the person who has granted the award--in this case, me!-- and his or her blog link. Pass the award along to several other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.)

Today's final news update is really a no-news item, for those of you who have asked about my husband. There's really nothing new to report. He has to wait another week for an MRI, unless he improves enough in the interim that it's not necessary. So the waiting game continues.

See you all tomorrow for One Line Wednesday!

Thank you so much for this award! You have no idea how much this means, and how it came at a time when I very much needed a little friendly wave.

I have responded here on my blog:
