Schmoozalicious Baby!

DOH! What can I say - this is my first award and I am absolutely thrilled by it! I'd like to thank my good friend and mentor Marzie for giving me this boost of blogging confidence! When I started here I was absolutely lost and I found a friend who was both patient and kind in Marzie. She patiently helped me beef up my blog to something readable! I really don't know how she finds the time but she does and I've truly grateful to her for that! Okay enough sucking up! ; ) LOL

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. So how in the world I got this award I will never know LOL but I've thought of five great people who have made me welcome and schmoozed their way into my blog and life that I'd like to give this most prestigious Power of Schmooze Award!

Nick for being my best buddy for over twenty long painful years LOL He was the evil rat who introduced me to blogging and everyone knows once your blog you never can stop! LOL Buddy! You deserve this! I hope to see it on Anything Goes and make sure you pass it on or I'll have to come there and smack you! LOL

For the rest of the awardees I'd like to make it simple. Each one of you below have made blogging here a pleasure and made me want to go on, I sincerely would like to award the Power of Schmooze to you. I'm only sorry that I've only got "four more" awards to give! to the rest who I've missed out, you still are great friends and Schmoozers to me!





My heartiest congratulation to all 5 bloggers! Now it’s your turn to award 5 other bloggers with the Power of Schmooze Award! Cheers!
