  1. You’re very welcome, Maggie! πŸ™‚ I know some of the blogs on your list, but not all of them, so here’s a great opportunity to go blog hopping. πŸ™‚
    Lovely random facts, by the way!


  2. You are irresistibly sweet, Maggie!

    Loved the factoids . . . especially “no cell phone.” You rock.

    Are Bright Leaf hotdogs a brand (like Oscar Meyer) or a type (like pork vs. beef vs. leaf)?

    Thanks for the mention, link, and award.


  3. Wow. What an honor. Thanks very much.

    I’ll have to figure out who I should give the award to. If you hadn’t already got one, you’d have been on the list, that’s for sure.


  4. Congrats to all of the award winners.. some are my friends already, as I see their blogs.


  5. Thank you so much, Maggie! And congrats, yourself.

    I had to get a cell phone, but I refuse to get a Facebook page! My recurring dream involves being late for work.


    1. “I had to get a cell phone, but I refuse to get a Facebook page! My recurring dream involves being late for work.”

      Good thing they block FB at my job or no work would get done at all. πŸ™‚

      Seriously, I’m on FB, but I don’t spend much time there, and I’m not on Twitter.

      My idea that FB is not essential is supported by Tavi Gevinson ( who gets more hits than most of us can imagine and who lectures fashion industry professionals on how to reach the young market. Her blog proudly declares that she’s not on Facebook.


  6. I was # 15 but was never told i was nominated so i couldn’t give you my 7 random facts. At least i was nominated.. Thanks. id like to stay in touch with you.



    1. Gracie, you got the award from me, not from Maggie. I linked back to her because she gave the award to me originally (it’s like a “pay it forward” kind of thing).

      I couldn’t figure out how to log onto your blog to comment, that’s why I posted it on Facebook.

      Here’s the page where you’re listed (the list is alphabetical, BTW):
