Comments - A Blogger's Drug of Choice

All bloggers love comments, right? Otherwise blogging is too much like talking to yourself. (I already do plenty of that as it is). An award that recognizes great commenters is a brilliant idea. And that's the idea behind the You Don't Say Award. Sandy at It's a Jungle Out There was kind enough to pass this award on to me recently. Getting awards is always an honor but an award that recognizes those bloggers who consistently comment is a high honor indeed. The You Don't Say Award "... is for beautiful people who practice blogging etiquette by visiting or visiting back, and leaving comments. Their observations are apt and helpful and it's a pleasure to have them comment on your posts..."

Usually, I have a hard time deciding who to pass awards on to. It was a bit easier this time since the "rules" are so specific. I looked back on all my posts for the month of June and tallied up all my comments. I am going to give this award to my top 4 commenters, who haven't already received the award (I travel in a tight blogging circle). My top commenters who have already received the award (and are free to take it again if they so choose) are: Anita at A Wife, A Woman, A Mom, Tammy at Keep in Touch with Mommakin', Sandy at It's a Jungle Out There, Alex at Please Try Again and Kathy B! at The World According to Me.

The newest recipients are:
C at CW5H20

Congrats ladies. Thanks for always taking the time to visit and leave such thoughtful and insightful comments. I enjoy reading and commenting on your blogs as well.

Thanks! It's probably my favorite part of blogging...giving and receiving comments!

I actually feel horrible at the moment! I've been a horrible blog visitor and commenter. My last few weeks have found me in too much pain to be typing, reading, or commenting. You are MUCH to kind to mention me.

Anita said...

Well deserved award Pam! Sandy was sweet enough to think of me too, but I just haven't taken the time to write much since our vacation return, what is the deal with getting my house back in order? When I left it wasn't spotless, but dustbunnies and such have just sprouted everywhere........ugh.
Enjoy basking in your comment love!

Tammy Howard said...

Our drug of choice - ain't it the truth? You are CERTAINLY deserving of this one!

Kathy B! said...

You surely deserve this award. I always look forward to your comments :)

And thank you for passing it my way as well!

Sandy said...

There is no one more deserving of this award than you, Pam. I have a line on my sidebar that asks for comments because 'it's the only way I know you were here.' It is so true and I anxiously read every comment almost as they arrive. Thanks so much for the shout out!

Thanks Pam! I love reading your blog on a regular basis, and love our dialogue....congrats on your award, and thanks for passing it on to me! :)
