My special system for picking winners for the prizes consisted of the Professor picking numbers from 1-75 and then me double checking the comment sections for the prizes. My husband has been away for an entire month (he just returned last evening from teaching a summer course at Princeton) so he has not read any of the comments.
The contest winners are:
Amy from Beautiful Descent - $10 gift card
Monica from Daily Dwelling - Either a guest post from me or free editing
Dorinda from Treasures in Jars of Clay - Blog of the month for August
Ladies, please e-mail me so I can get you your prizes. Thank you.
While we were touring, two sweet bloggers, Anne Elizabeth --Motherhood and All That's In Between, and Vixibil at Party of 5, awarded me with the Brilliant Web Blog Primio 2008. While I am far, far less than brilliant, the award is much appreciated. Thank you so very much Anne Elizabeth and Vixibil.
Since this is a "pass it on" award and I always have trouble narrowing down the choices, I decided to choose blogs who participated in the tour...not that it really made it an easier choice, because there were 75 brilliant participants. However, I did pick seven blogs who have recently inspired me. Before I announce them, I need to post the rules for this award.
The rules: Put the logo on your blog.Put a link to who awarded it to you on your blog also (Seriously, this one is always optional for me).You need to nominate 7 other bloggers for the award and put links to them also on your blog. Finally, leave a comment for those you've nominated - so they know they've received a special award.
Seven Bloggers who have recently inspired me (in no particular order of importance) -
- Matt from Rise Rise
- Grace Unbound
- Mari from Out of Deep Waters
- Jenni Catron from Jenni Catron
- Kari Dawson from Finding My Place in This World
- Elizabeth from Mommy, etc.
- Morning by Morning
