The Great Comments Award

Back in early December, I was awarded by Jenna Quentin at Meandering in a Field of Words and Richard at Writing and Living with Richard P. Hughes with the Great Comments Award:

. . . and I figured it was time I got around to awarding the commenters here on my blog. Now, the rules are to pass it on to the most recent 20 commenters--but because I was awarded twice, I haven't awarded anyone else in a while, and hey, it's still the holiday season (kinda; to me it ends on New Year's Day) I've decided to list the 40 most recent commenters instead.

Here we go (in no particular order other than recent to oldest):

  1. Heather
  2. Jemi Fraser
  3. ....Petty Witter
  4. Paul Tobin
  5. Medeia Sharif
  6. Shelley
  7. Sun Singer
  8. Sarah Allen
  9. Jules
  10. Belle
  11. Shannon Lawrence
  12. Tricia J. O'Brien
  13. Charles Gramlich
  14. Sharon K. Mayhew
  15. Krispy
  16. farawayeyes
  17. Rebecca
  18. Old Kitty
  19. cherie
  20. Emily Rose
  21. C D Meetens
  22. Michael Offutt, Supra-Genius
  23. Vicki Newell
  24. J. A. Bennett
  25. Cherie Reich
  26. Lisa-Marie Jordan
  27. Brian
  28. Andrea Franco-Cook
  29. Christine Rains
  30. kelworthfiles
  31. Catherine M. Johnson
  32. Joshua
  33. Alyssa Kirk
  34. Melissa Bradley
  35. DeniseCovey_L'Aussie
  36. Rachel Morgan
  37. Misha Gericke
  38. Beth
  39. Murees Dupé
  40. Pearson Report


And for everyone who's come by The Eagle's Aerial Perspective and read my posts: a big thank you!

What a nice thing to do! I've read many comments by these wonderful folks around the blogosphere and here. They are all really cool people.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You definitely deserve that award because you rock at comments!

Old Kitty said...

Yay!! Congratulations with this wonderful award!! Awww and thanks for the mentions! You STAR!!

I find commenting more fun than me writing posts! LOL!

Take care

Pat Hatt said...

Nice award, congrats on it. Although I'm never quite fond of the rules attached afterwards to most of them. Kind of like being a blog pimp..haha

Belle said...

Congrats on the award! Thanks so much for including me - I appreciate it.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

You area great and faithful comment leaver. Congrats on your award.

Trisha said...

Congrats on the award, and congrats to all the new winners! hehe.

(nearly) happy new year to you! :D

Peggy Eddleman said...

I heart commentors. What a great thing to do to thank yours! (And while I'm here, I'd like to thank you for yours. :D)

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Thank you! I think it's so important to leave comments whenever possible, and you're great at doing that. Blogs seem more alive when there's some interaction.
So, yay, for comments and those who leave them!

Jemi Fraser said...

Aww, thank you! You're a sweetie and it's a true pleasure to visit and comment on your blog :)

Christine Rains said...

Congratulations on the award. It is well deserved. Your blog posts are great and you're wonderful at commenting. :) Thank you for including me too.

Pearson Report said...

First...Congratulations - you deserve the Great Comments Award.
I always appreciate when I see your striking avatar in my comment area, along with your kind words.

Next...Thank you!
I'm so very excited to receive this award. And, the best part (I'm reading it my way, so humour me) is that I'm the oldest commenter at 40! I'll take 40 any day! (big grin) Yes, yes, I know it also means I snuck through by the skin of my teeth - ah, the luck...it does follow me.

Anyway...I am looking forward to passing it on!

You are a highlight in my blogging travels!

Deborah Walker said...

I'm loving this award.

C D Meetens said...

Congratulations, Eagle! Happy New Year! :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Melissa: You included. ;)

Alex: Aw, thank you!

Old Kitty: You're very welcome--enjoy the award!

Sometimes it's the same for me, too. I don't really mind writing posts . . . but it takes a lot more than a comment on someone else's.

Pat: Thanks!

I've been known to just skip the rules; most I don't mind, but they take a lot of time.

Belle: Thank you. :)

Enjoy the award!

Susan: Thanks! :)

Trisha: Thank you!

Happy New Year!

Peggy: Indeed--they're awesome!

I always love visiting your blog. :)

Tricia: You're welcome!

I try; though I know a lot of days I don't comment as much as could/should.


Jemi: You're very welcome. :)

Aw, thanks!

Christine: Thank you!

You're welcome.

Pearson: Thanks!

When I was making up the list, at first I thought, "Oh no, I won't be able to include Jenny!", but then I found I'd copied another commenter's name twice by accident. You definitely deserve this award! :)

Deborah: You want it? You're a frequent commenter here, so if you do, feel free to snag the award. :)

C D: Thank you!

Tfwalsh: Thanks. :)

Hilary: Hope you'll find someone new to follow, then!

Thank you--I had a good birthday. I'm glad I finished my novel before 2012, too, as I was afraid I wouldn't and I really want to start working on something else in the new year.

Happy New Year! :)

Misha: Enjoy the award!

I hope you have a wonderful 2012, Misha!

Cherie: Thanks. :)

You're very welcome!

Andrea: Thank you.

Happy 2012!

Shelley: Thanks!

Jules: Thank you!

You're welcome. :)

Happy New Year to you, too!

Charles: You do seem to have a devoted fanbase over at Razored Zen. :)

Jay: They're awesome.


Happy New Year!

Ann: Thank you. :)

I hope you have a great 2012!

Carrie: Thanks!

Here's to 2012. :)

Happy New Year!

J. A. Bennett said...

So glad I'm on the list! What a fun award :)

Well done on your much-deserved award - and on your Blog in general. Only discovered it earlier this year but find it always lively, thought-provoking, interesting and personal. See you in 2012 - Happy New Year !!

Congrats on your award!

Joshua said...

I'm hit! I'm hit!

Congrats on the award.

Christina Farley said...

Blogging friends are great aren't they? I learn so much from them. Yeah! and Happy New Year!

The Golden Eagle said...

MISH: Thank you so much!

Happy New Year! :)

Donna: Thanks!

It was easier than it looks; I just had to double-click on the linked names in the comments and Google Chrome (the browser I used) just put them into my post.

J. A.: Enjoy!

Brian: Not sure if that's a question or not, but assuming it isn't, I'm glad you enjoy them!

You're very welcome!

Nancy: Ah, well . . . it took me almost a month to post about it. :P

Thank you!

Happy New Year. :)

Sharon: You're welcome!

Me, too.

Hope you have a great 2012!

DWei: I know what you mean . . . sometimes I feel like all I have to say is terribly dull.

And for the record, I always think you leave interesting comments. :)

Nicole: Aw, thank you!

Happy New Year to you too!

Tracy: You're welcome!

I greatly enjoy visiting your blog; it's one of my favorites.

Same to you!

Laughingwolf: LOL. Thanks!

Happy New Year! :)

The writing pad: Thank you!

I hope you have a great year!

Tyrean: Thank you.

Joshua: Yup.


Christina: The best. :)

Happy New year to you as well!

Rachel Morgan said...

I think I saw this post the other day but missed the fact that my name is on the list! Thanks for making it 40 instead of 20!

The Golden Eagle said...

Rachel: Anytime. :)
