My First Award!

Territerri ( of Terri Terri Quite Contrary) gave me this wondrous award:


So. The rules. [ DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!!!!!!!!!]

1) Put the Logo on your blog.

2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3) Nominate at least seven other blogs and add their links to your post.

The first two rules- check! However, the third one presents a bit of a problem... I don't have that big of a readership base, and therefore, I don't know if the people I give the award to will read it. I SHALL PRESENT THEM WITH IT ANYWAY!!!

As a blogging nerdfighter (clickyclick here to learn about nerdfighting) I feel the need to give this award to Kayley, one of the two nerdfighters that I read. However, I'm not sure how she would react to it... Somehow I get the feeling she wouldn't like it that much... TWO BAD SHE GETS IT ANYWAY CUZ SHE HAS A BRILLIANT WEB BLOG!! ( I really need to stop using CAPS in this post...) I discovered Kayley on one of her Youtube accounts, fiveawesomegirls, and started watching her personal channel, owlssayhooot. I found out about her fashion blog, and started reading, even though she didn't post much. As soon as I found out about her other blog, I started reading. I don't know why I love reading her so much, I just do! Her blog is Quixotic Idealist.

The second person I recently discovered thanks to Hank Green, one of the two brothers who invented nerdfighting. ( <----- Link to their channel!) That person is Marion, also a nerdfighter. I love reading her blog, and she's only a year older than me! I really love reading/watching teen blogs/vlogs, cuz it's nice to know there are people like me out there who are my age! Wow, that's cheesy. Anyways, Marion's blog is Octoberist Pensieve.

Thirdly, I give this award to.... JEN AT HUCKDOLL'S HOOD! Jen was the second person I started reading in this wonderful world of blogging! She's hilarious, down- to - earth and real, and isn't afraid to say what she thinks! I wish I could be like that.... STUPID PEER PRESSURE!!!Not really- well, kind of... I suppose I'll have to do a post on that later.

Number Four! And the first of the two Authors I shall give this to!! As you know (or may not know...) I'm an aspiring author, and a reading fanatic. Therefore, with my teeny-tiny blog roll, (15 blogs, some of which are just websites in blog format), I feel compelled to give this award to the two author blogs I read. The first is Libba Bray, YA author. Libba Bray is the author of one of my favorite trilogys, A Great And Terrible Beauty. Mrs. Bray is so funny! I love her blog, just like I love her books!

Almost there... FIVE! The next blog is that of a Nerdfighting YA author! APPLAUSE APPLAUSE! The blogger? Maureen Johnson! I haven't actually read any of her books yet, but that's just cuz I can't find Suite Scarlett ANYWHERE! It's CRAZY!!! Anyway, The minute I go to a borders or a target, I will purchase one of her books! Anyway, Maureen is so funny and sarcastic, and I love her blog!

SIX! The next person is.... Charlie at charlieissocoollike! Charlie is also a nerdfighter, and Tuesday on fiveawesomeguys, which is how I found him! His vlogs are HILARIOUS, and I just found out about his website/blog.

Finally, seven: KALEB NATION!!! Kaleb is also known as the Twilight Guy, the first guy to publicly read Twilight, and now he's on to New Moon. I found him as TG, and found his other site/blog, Kaleb Nation. Kaleb is an author, and his first book comes out in 2009. I cant wait!

So, those are my seven people who get this award! Next award:

The Share The Love Award:

The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. Please include a link to this post and ask the recipient to do the same.
Miss Terri (Sorry, I feel like I should call her miss...) Gave this award to all of her readers, and I shall do the same!! (You have NO Idea how hard it was to come up with seven people for that last one! )
Well, I'm going to comment on on the blogs I gave the brilliant blog award to so they know they got the award!

LOL, you made me laugh with the "Miss Terri" thing! Just "Terri" is just fine, really. You're my daughter's age and her friends all just call me Terri.

Good for you on passing on the award and linking the recipients. That in itself should be a great way to build your readership and hopefully they'll acknowlege you in a post on their blogs too.

Did you figure out the signature? I looked but didn't see any instructions, but I've seen people who do it.

So, um... Hi... I feel kind of awkward leaving a comment on your blog, but I saw your address on Libba Brays blog actually... I also love her books. Anyway I had to check it out, and wanted to let you know about my own blog. Trying to spread the word...

Its mostly dedicated to the book that I am trying to write, so if your into fantasy stuff, check it out. Btw I am almost 16, also play the flute, and obviously, like reading and writing

Hi Faith! First...congrats on all of your awards! Aren't they fun??? Next...thanks for stopping by my place. I appreciate your comment, and I just cannot tell you how hooked I am on this series! I just finished "New Moon", and when we get back from NYC tomorrow night I WILL be starting "Eclipse"...I don't want to take it, because then I will just sit in the hotel all day and read!
I'll check in when I get back!
