This will be quite a challenge, as too many bloggers have become inactive this year!
A few weeks ago, Beenzzz nominated me for:
(Thank you Beenzzz - I love your humour, your optimism, your strength of personality, and you have a great eye for photography.)
I have to choose only 5 gals, and most of the active female bloggers I know have already been nominated!.....grrr.....

I enjoy reading your funny, warm, entertaining, sophisticated, informative posts, and seeing the beautiful images you share. When you don't blog, I miss you! Keep up the good work, girls!
This weekend, Lotus and ML made nominations for this award, and I was a nominee:
About the award: This award is for the bloggers who: effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.
(Lotus, thank you for opening our eyes to little known corners of the world, the people in them, and the lives they lead.
ML, you're one of the bright sparks who keep optimism and laughter alive in this blogosphere.)

You are faithful, regular readers, who are often the first to comment. Between us, we have developed a pleasant dialogue, thereby creating a wonderful little blog neighbourhood.
Thank you Blogger Girls and Blog Schmoozers for putting up with my recent long rants, offering advice, making me laugh, nagging and supporting me. Without you guys, I would have retired from the blogosphere long ago. I promise to return to form really soon.
Finally, I hope none of you named on this page quit for a loooong time yet. :)
