Best Blog Awards

Recently, a cowrazy delightful blogging friend, Miss Bliss of Bliss Bait, gifted me with this award.  It has been awarded and re-awarded many times  from blogger to blogger as we discover sites we love and appreciate, that encourage us and help us grow.  As a recipient of this award, I have been charged with gifting it to 15 other bloggers.  All the blogs I follow deserve it for they have all touched and inspired me.  I tried not to duplicate Miss Bliss’s nominees; therefore my 19 choices (sly smile) for Best Blog Award are:


3 Things in D. C.

Blue Willow Haiku World



Chronicles of Dad 

Dissonant Intonations

Dragonfly Poet

Dreams Are My Reality

Fishing for Words

Flandrum Hill

haiku study

heart shaped l i e s 

Hot Dog Delight 

Indian Adventures:  one year abroad

naming constellations

Sweetiegirl’s Weblog

TechnoBabe’s Adventures 

The Buffaloe Pen


You may hold it in your heart or pass it on.  Either is fine.  Thank you, my friends.  I cherish every bit of your beautiful souls that you share.  You are all golden bright.

    This is an honor! Thank you! You inspire me to write a new post (I will confess holiday craziness and haven’t posted in 3 weeks – bad me). You have a great set of writing and photos here.


    • Yousei Hime says:

      You are very welcome. I understand the holiday craziness! Every year I look forward to and dread this season. I definitely look forward to reading your new post. Take your time, enjoy the season. 🙂

    You’ve missed me here! Nope! Just kidding! Congratulations to all of them, they do deserve, I am sure of that! Especially so if the award is from someone who’s as deserving as them!

    Yousei, hope the next time around, I would be included! He he he…Just kidding….PEACE!!!

    Good morning!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Amity Me. I am so sorry to have overlooked you. I did try to limit the number to close to fifteen. I also chose sites I’d visited the longest, and yours being a more recent one, I must have overlooked it. You don’t have to wait until next time. I’ll gladly add it today.

  9. flandrumhill says:

    As always, I’ll have to use the opportunity to scan through some of these blogs you’ve listed that I haven’t seen… looks like some excellent people in here!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Doo itashimashite! I’m happy to have a chance to thank you. You write often and you write very well. It really does inspire me (and makes me jealous). I’m sure you will find a new blog or two to inspire you from the list. Happy chapbook editing ;)!

  19. Jennifer says:

    Thank you, Yousei. I am so touched that you found my site, and your comments on my poems have been so helpful and hopeful. I have not been much of a networker with blogging, but perhaps you are showing me the path.

    Your work has inspired me, and I look forward to seeing more of it.

    Thank you for your gracious, productive, winning ways. I hope that the winter holidays are wonderful for you.

    (Dragonfly Poet)
