And another one!

Behold, I am a Schmoozing Super Power! (Except with a much nicer arm) Fuzzy and Timepass have both given me this award because they think I'm a schmoozemeister. Thank you!

The creator of this award refers to schmoozing as the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.”

But in my mind, this is an award for community involvement, and the people I'm passing on the award to are all wonderful folks who take time out of their lives to support and brighten the days of so many bloggers they've never even met.

So anyway, without any further ado, here are my favourite schmoozers:

Tharini: She has such a welcoming way about her. She was one of the first people to find my blog and leave kind, encouraging comments - which when you're just starting off as a blogger, just gives you such a delirious high. In many ways, she's the glue that holds this mommy blogging community together.

JLT: Sometimes I read a post and end up not leaving a comment because I don't know what to say, but JLT will always find something nice and genuine to say. She's on a blogging break at the moment, being snowed under with life and work, and I miss her warm friendly presence in the blogosphere. Come back soon, JLT!

Poppins: Because she twisted my arm and said give me an award or else! :-D No, seriously, Poppins is one of those bloggers who notices little things in your posts that most people miss. She will take the time out to leave long comments or if it's more private, send an email, passing on information, advice and support. That's really something special.

All the folks at Saffron Tree: I don't know many of them, and the site is not about networking or 'schmoozing' at all. It is about sharing information and opinions on children's books, and I think it is such a wonderful contribution to the community. Thank you all so much for taking the time to share.

Thanks Moppet's mom and I do feel very nice about it (not like I cheated my way into it at all :)

Tharini: You're welcome, the words are heartfelt.

Poppins: Of course, sweetie. It's well deserved! :-)

Suki: Thank you, thank you!

Hi Moppet's Mom -

Congrats on your award!

And thank you so much for your kind words about Saffron Tree!

Have always lurked on MM, and left without leaving a comment. Two posts come to mind that I've enjoyed reading - 1) the poem post and the one with your Dad's advice on parenting...

What a pleasurable read your stories are! Would love to get to know you more! :-)
