Modesty is Always the Best Policy

"I can live for two months on a good compliment. "
~Mark Twain

Thanks so much to our Bloggy Friends Tara R. & Blogstalker. They each recently saw fit to Bestow some Bling upon Your Humble Scribe. To wit, here are their Prizes & Pronouncements:
Tara, who Holds Forth at If Mom Says OK, runs the Very Best Bloggy Establishment--in Our Universe, anyway. As part of a ceremony honoring 6 Blogging Teachers, here is what she had to say about The Scholastic Scribe:
"Melissa B...gets extra kudos for being a high school journalism teacher. Her blog is a eclectic collection of entertaining musings, audience participation and thoughtful discourse on today’s youth (meh!)"

As always, Dear Tara, we feel that it is The Scribe who should be conferring the Your Make My Day Award on You. You truly Make Our Day, Every Day!

Blogstalker, one of Our Newest Bloggy Cohorts, saw fit to confer the Arte y Pico Award on The Scribe's Bloggy Head. Blogstalker explains a little about this Exotic Piece O' Bling:

"It translates literally to 'art peak'. It has been passed on as meaning a creative and interesting blog."

As our Nana, late of Waco, Texas, used to say, "Well, Bust My Britches & Call in the Cavalry!" We had no idea any one of y'all could put "The Scholastic Scribe" & "Creative & Interesting" together in the Same Sentence. We are so humbled by this honor!

Tara R. gave us no directions on passing on the Bloggy Love, but Blogstalker was Very Specific. Therefore, here are the rules for y'all who are receiving the Arte y Pico Award from Your Intrepid Scribe:

1.) Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material & overall contribution to the blogger community.
2.) Post the name of the author & a link to his or her blog so everyone can view it.
3.) Each award winner has to show the award & put the name & link to the blog that has given him or her the award
4.) The award winner & presenter should post the link of the "Arte y Pico" blog so everyone will know the origin of the award.
5.) Post these rules.

So, Drumroll, Please. We hereby confer the Arte y Pico Award on the following Extremely Deserving Bloggers:
  • Tara R. You're a Peach, a Chum & a wonderful Sounding Board. Plus, when we visit your blog, we always imagine we're chatting with Vivian Leigh!
  • Hot Tub Lizzy. She's our newest Bloggy Friend & she's Running for President! But more about that tomorrow...Stay Tuned!
  • Mimi. She always has something to say, especially for the Silly Sunday Sweepstakes!
  • Miss Kris. We're not quite sure how she found us, but we're Glad. She. Did!
  • Gina. She's conflicted about blogging right now. Hop on over and lend her some support, y'all!

That's All, Folks! Thanks to Each & Every One of You for making This Journey a Boatload of Fun!
