On My First Blogoversary, My Blog Buds Gave To Me

On my first blogoversary, my blog buds gave to me: FIVE BLOG AWARDS (that I didn't have before)!

Ok, to be honest, I've been holding on to a couple of these for a while so that I could astound you on my blogoversary with just how awesome Aria'z Ink is. I've been going for a year, and I'm so thankful for all of my followers and the many comments I've had over this year. I thank you for showing up at all, never mind coming back more than once!

With this post, I'd like to thank all of you that decided that I was worthy of awards. I'm grateful and still kind of shocked that y'all keep being totally snookered thinking I'm deserving. I do want to apologize though. When I envisioned this day, a few months back, I didn't foresee hubby's unemployment. I wanted to give y'all something to show my appreciation... so, in light of recent economic events, I'll just have to give you what I give best... posts... Two, instead of the usual one. And since I'm a big fan of sharing my cheesecake and being lazy at the same time, I have added each and every single blog that I follow to my blogroll. I enjoy you all in your many different ways. If, then, you are on my blogroll, please feel free to take any and all of the awards here that you want, and I'd love a linkback if you can cause my rankings are sinking like a stone, but if you don't that's cool, I'm not gonna send Mister Jedi Mousy after you to get 'em back or anything...

God Bless, and thanks again y'all for showing up!

And a special thank you to all of these award givers:

"C" a.k.a. Wonder Wifey for the Interesting Blog Award

Stacy for the One Lovely Blog Award

Myra for the Most Wonderful Favorite Award: “These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.”

And The Bee for A Lovely Blog Award and the Best Blog Award.

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I hope to still have energy to someday hit mine. Another 6 months of pithy content? Can I possibly do it? I look to your success and the success of others to pull me over the finish line. Waiter! Another tripple shot latte!

Oh my gosh! You're blog is already one year old. Aww.. You deserve all those awards (and I'm sure I was not the first to say that).

Keep safe!
