Throwing Caution to the Wind ...

... and posting the award Ruth gave me. It may not be the exact words I would use, but I agree with the sentiment, anyway, and I'm ready to pass it along. I read the meaning of the award as those who are good writers, honest, insightful, but also couragoeus in some way. That's my take anyway. Now, I need to post these rules:

1) Choose five other bloggers that you feel are “Kick Ass Bloggers”

2) Let them know that they have received an award.

3) Link back to both the person who awarded you and also to http://www.mammadawg.com/

4) Visit the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment.

And here are five bloggers who I believe fit the criteria of the award:

1) Mompriest over at Seeking Authentic Voice. She is not afraid to write about both her hopes and her fears. She writes with honesty, integrity and well: authenticity. Mompriest, you kick ... well, you know what.

2) Fran at FranIam also courageously blogs both about her personal life, and her passions for spirituality and politics.

3) Border Explorer is a relatively new blog for me. She's not afraid to explore the edges of life. She doesnt keep to the safe subjects.

4) Choralgirl is honest and passionate about her work, and about her faith, and about life in Christian community. Plus, she plays a mean cowbell!

5) If you will just read Sue's blog over at InnerDorothy, you will know why I think she deserves this award.
Now, back to writing my own kick*** posts. more or less.

OK, first of all, THANK YOU. What a great compliment!

Second, I'm laughing at your title. Get crazy, girl. :-)

I am totally applauding your choices! What a great group of Kick A$$ bloggers. ;-)

Sue said...

Thank you so much Diane. I needed some kick-a*s vibes tonight for a difficult doc appointment. I was waiting in the exam room and found myself repeating the Philipians verse: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

That's sort of like kicking as*, right?

And- the appointment went better than I had thought it would.

Congratulations! And YAY for all your awardees. Well deserved, all of you!

FranIAm said...

You are simply too generous with your praise. In any event, I do thank you!

I feel overwhelmed.

Border Explorer said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Diane (and also commenters.) I'm so happy to know you. I'll try to live up to your praise. I'm thrilled.

I admire your thoughtfulness Diane. It wouldn't even have been a question for me, and I've thought twice about that. I wish I were a little more like you. Less cussy. You DO kick a**!
