I have received a schmooze award !

5 July 2007 9 comments

My good pal Morricone over at Cracked Ego recognized me with this award and here's what he said about moi....
"kim - She's the bee's knees, there's just no other way to put it. Amazing painter with a knack for making herself seem very accessible. Go to laketrees for some great art and conversation and then, head to PoeARTica for some great reading."
thanks Morriconei and I owe it to you and your stimulating conversation...

Morriconei was recognized by
Lisa Q at
40s Singleness-Living "The Secret" who said:
"Besides being a very talented artist and writer, Morriconei is a master schmoozer who is always sure to respond to comments left on his blog. Be sure to check out Cracked Ego."
I couldn't have said it better myself..........

Mike at Ordinary Folk and his friend Danielle have created the new Power of Schmooze award.
Mike wrote:
Schmoozing as defined by is the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation. Some bloggers are gifted with the ability to effectively schmooze and others not so much.

so here are the 5 master schmoozers that I would like to show my appreciation to for their friendship ..........

1. Lisa at Lisa Lorenz Studio Blog the sunniest...friendliest....and most loyal friend ...she is a talented artist who paints beautiful ...colourful.....paintings....and she visits me here ...rain ...hail ...or leave her rainbow comments......she has achieved much in the blogging world and is recognized by the top art sites as a very successful artist...

2. Deborah at Life in the Fast Lane always responds to my comments over at her place in a really friendly way.....that's probably why she in the top 100 at Technorati.....and top of the list at Blogging to Fame ......she is always willing to help others......and is very caring as well.....that's when she's not biking around the country or gardening in the middle of the night......

3. Mary Ann at Maryannaville™ is the queen of schmooze when it comes to talkin'......a very caring..and friendly..socially blogger at BTF too ....and ....why shouldn't she be.... when she knows she can go home to her beautiful burgundy blog every day...

4 Pearl at Interesting Observations
is the sweetest...most unnaffected .....'princess'.......(who btw ...happens to think that Prince William is a better catch than Leonardo Di Caprio).........Pearl writes interesting ...thoughtful articles with a fresh...and open point of view.....and always responds to her readers in the same manner.....

5. Anna at Box1715 and at Hidden Shadows is a very thoughtful....talented poet/writer who writes beautifully sensitive poems....her comments are always meaningful ....she glides by your blog ...quietly and with grace.......

    Maryannaville will not ever be the same since we've met, Kim. I mean, like, how many people get the privilege of meeting up with another emotional Girly who gets misty eyed over a color matching scroll bar?
