Wow, talk about a marathon this week...my feet feel like I marched in the Rose Bowl Parade!

Can I nominate you for the trophy?

You are the one who gets this rag-tagged band and points them in the right direction!

Thanks Carol....have a happy new Year!

Carol said...

Thanks for the nomination Kathy but I was never a featured friendless site.
So get your boots back on...

Stephen said...

Wow, it'll be good to visit everyone, particularly after the holidays when (I hope) things have calmed a bit.

Dave said...

Well I have to say that I have visited most of the sites as instructed - are we supposed to review them? I haven't really got he hang of this yet!

Carol said...

Hi Dave,
You can comment anonymously on my blog, which you might like to do for the vote. It is the democratic way anyways.
Everyone is able to vote for 3 of their favorite featured friendless sites. A review would be ideal for those that you have chosen. Or you can list what you liked about them, as I do.
This is a special end of the year occasion as usually there is no voting. I get to choose ;)

All Cupcakes, All The Time get my vote because they went to alot trouble taking picures and they look good. I think they take alot pride in doing this.

Haunt me and Uncensored soul...because they are uniquely different, interesting and I like the background on Uncensored Soul. Haunt me has interesting and different blogs which have an artistic element which I am fond of.

I vote for Barbara and Kathy -- both always have something for me to really think about.

Carol said...

Hi Anonymous,
Kathy and Barbara aren't previous featured sites so as good as they are, they don't qualify. I hope you will vote again.

Great turn out at the polls!

Raehan said...

Carol, This is a great idea, but it's very late. Do I have until next year to do it?

Carol said...

Raehan,
You only have to have your vote in before Friday.

I'm afraid that none of these are my cup of tea at all. Sorry!

Happy New year!

I vote for Mompoet....she's funny, love her moods, and great poetry.

From the Edge to the Center...love his pictures, graphic and the fact he wrote a novel.

Whiskey Talking...outrageously funny!

Come Untogether-She is a blogger who gives seminal glimpses of her creativity through poetry and prose.

Kat's Eye-She is a disciplined writer who by her determination encourages others. Her strength in dealing with her handicapped children also inspires.

Uncensored Soul-She seems to have so much yet she writes of insecurity. This youthful combination interests me. She has a captivating layout as well.

Haunt me: Because it's hauntingly unique and beautifully written.

Come Untogether: Because I couldn't stop reading it, I found it so interesting! The writing was very eclectic and real with such depth of truth about the "gut" of humanity and humankind.

A Dose of Ztessa: Because she expresses herself very well, is an excellent writer and I could just about relate to everything she said, been there done that.

oops! Meant "A Dose of Xtessa" right above this comment.

OKAY CAROL IF I CAN'T VOTE FOR YOU OR BARBRA OR ANY OF THE OTHERS THAT DESERVE TROPHIES AND I HAVE TO NARROW IT DOWN IT WOULD BE "EDGE GALLERY" EMILYS SITE. AND THE REASON IS SHE IS VERY GOOD AND RESPONDS TO E-MAILS AND WILLING TO DO COMMISSIONED WORK.. VERY HELPFUL AND PERSONABLE. SO I HOPE THAT COUNTS FOR 2 VOTES FOR HER.. THANKS AGAIN FOR THE HONOR OF BEING ABLE TO VOTE FOR THESE GREAT SITES.
