Apparently, I Can Schmooze?

By , July 25, 2007 9:25 pm

Wow! First a Rockin’ Girl Blogger Award, then I make the Vegetable A-List, and now I have been awarded the Schmooze Award! What a month! Perhaps I should go away more often.

Meeyauw has kindly bestowed upon me, the Blogging Community Involvement Award, aka. The Power of Schmooze Award. This is what the Schmooze Award means:

“As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers 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.”

Thank you Meeyauw! As a naturally shy person, this is an unlikely real-life award for me. Obviously Meeyauw and I have never met at a cocktail party otherwise she might feel compelled to reconsider her choice of recipient. However, I am grateful and am eager to bestow this honor on other bloggers whom I have come to “know” through mutual schmoozing as defined above.

There are several friendly bloggers out there who I have recently “met” via comments and the occasional email. I always enjoy their thoughtful comments and since they are spending time reading my blog, they obviously are not seeking out the “rich and successful”!

I pass this award on to the following blog friends (take it and put it on your blog (or not if you don’t want), and pass it on to others):

– Jen of Never a Dull Moment

Gattina of My Cats and Funny Stories and Writer Cramps

– Heather (aka. Celtic Mommy) of Ramblings of a SAHM

– Jules of

-Cheryl of A Day in the Life of our Homeschool Journey

Thanks again to Meeyauw who also would have been on this list had she not been the blogger to award me with this one!

    Woo Hoo! Congratulations!! What other exciting things could happen for you whilst vacationing?! :-)
    Seriously though, I’m very happy for you… I’m that same kinda shy chickie in real life, so it’s wonderful to see people like you/us being recognized for your great attitude and friendliness.
    Happy Thursday! ~Hettie

    You so rock my world! I seriously don’t see myself as a schmoozer (that’s Tom, not so much me) in real life, but I guess I’m an internet schmoozer and that’s just fine! :) Thanks!

    Thanks for thinking of me! Sadly, I just noticed this post, so I have just now put it on my blog. I am honored indeed, and I have sooooo much catching up to do!
