Reader Appreciation Award

on July 1, 2012

Thank you, Debbie @ The Thoughtful Life

What an awesome way to begin a new month, especially one as prestigious as the month of July! Celebrations will be in high gear throughout our nation and abroad in only a few days. But, prior to the Fourth of July holiday, catnipoflife is proud to announce a celebration of her own.

When catnip first entered the blogosphere, she never envisioned meeting a realm of such wonderful people: people she can now call friends, even though they are within an invisible world. We have shared happiness and sorrow with inspiration beyond compare!


The “rules” for this award state that catnip cannot award someone who has already been awarded. And she cannot give the award back to the person who bestowed it upon her. With those thoughts in mind, I would like to thank all of the people who comment on my blog, but especially Debbie Hope @ The Thoughtful Life who honored catnip with this award. Debbie is an avid catnip visitor and her comments are always welcomed and enjoyed.

To my recipients, here are the rules for this award:

  1. Award your top 6 bloggers who have commented the most.
  2. Be thankful.
  3. You cannot award someone who has already been awarded. And you cannot give the award back to me.
  4. Don’t forget to tell the bloggers you’ve awarded.
  5. If you don’t want to pass on this award, that’s okay to. Just admire it.

Thank you, Aditya, for your visits, comments, tweets, and opportunity for catnip to write for you!
