Keep on rockin'!



I am honored to report that Kuanyin of Who's Yo Mama? recently nominated me for a "Rockin' Girl Blogger" award! Thanks so much, Kuanyin!

And, as is the tradition, I will now nominate some others that I feel deserve this award. I know I've already nominated some for the Thinking Blogger Award so this time I'll try to pick some other blogs you may or may not have noticed on my sidebar.

The first is Inside Betty's Head. Elizabeth's blog is beautifully written and her subject matter always worth reading, as her observations and stories are full of insight.

Rhea of the The Boomer Chronicles writes an entertaining blog that any Baby Boomer will relate to, and everyone will enjoy. Her blog is updated daily and her subjects are always interesting.

Third is Miss Doxie. Many of you may already know that Leigh has three adorable dachshunds (hence her blog's name), a boyfriend named Dukay, and humor to spare. Her dad recently was seriously ill so she has not posted since late June, but you can entertain yourself for days in her archives until that wondrous moment when she posts a new entry. Be careful if you're reading at work, as most of the time her blog will make you laugh out loud. Sometimes, though, you may cry. Both are difficult at work. And please, keep her dad in your thoughts.


Also...there is a new post on Medicana if you'd like to check it out.

Congrats on being the Rockin Girl and Thanks for giving me some more blogs to view.

It's hard to leave this Rockin blog to check them out.

Rhea said...

Thanks for this honor! I really appreciate it. I also liked checking out your other winners. Baby boomers: come visit me!

Sexist tag! Evil Spock wants to be a rockin' something blogger!

Mandy said...

This is new to me, a Rockin Blogger Girl.

Thats so cool.

Mauigirl said...

Thanks Larry for the congratulations! Rhea, it's well deserved! Glad you enjoyed the other links too.

Evil Spock, I totally was thinking of you when I was thinking of who to nominate, but then I realized, "Oh, he's not a girl. It doesn't work." You definitely get the next award! (I figured you wouldn't appreciate being put on a list of girl bloggers!)

Mauigirl said...

Mandy, the award I see a lot of is the Thinking Blogger award. Not sure if this one is awarded as frequently!

RUTH said...

I don't know if it's just a coincidence but I closed every program down on my computer except your blog and managed to get in! Well done on your award and HOPEFULLY I'll be back!

Ruth! I'm so glad you can get into my blog again! Welcome back!

Amanda said...

Congratulations, Maui! Too neat :)

Elizabeth said...

Hey! Thanks! I am honored. I like the other blogs you chose, too.

Gosh it's nice to be able to leave a comment. I had some virus or something that wouldn't let me comment. I'm not very good at keeping my mouth shut...

Mauigirl said...

Thanks Amanda!

And Elizabeth, I'm glad you are able to comment! It is so frustrating when things go wrong in Blogland, isn't it?

This has nothing to do with your post, but I just realized you don't live in Hawaii.

All this time I was picturing you looking like Rene (from Top Model, do you watch that? If not, sorry to insult your taste and intelligence. I am a fool for reality tv for some reason) and wearing white tunics and long Indian print skirts, bare makeup.

Skipping along on the beach beneath the blue skies and tropical sun. Surfing in the early morning. Sporting a handmade beaded necklace. Strolling by the ocean in your flip flops and cut offs.

Mauigirl said...

LOL, I only wish! That is actually what I aspire to do and be in my retirement. We've been to Maui many times, which is why I chose my name. It started back in the 80's when frequent flier miles were so easy to come by and my husband was traveling a lot for business. We try not to ever pay for the tickets, and stay in condos that are reasonably priced so we can go more often. We were last there two years ago and hope to go in March of next year.

Congrats Mauigirl. The only meme I do is Thinking Blogger, but I would do this too if I were a rockin' girl. It's great to get to honor other blogs.

Mauigirl said...

Thanks TomCat! I agree, I love to spread the word about other people's blogs that I enjoy.
