Commenter Award

I was recently award Commenter Award by Lauren at .   Thanks so much,  Lauren!  

The Commenter’s Award is a little different from the most awards. Instead of awarding others for their own blogs, you will be giving recognition to those who comment on your own blog regularly, take the time to really read your posts, and provide you with feedback via their comments. The nominations are the easiest part. You should nominate the six bloggers who comment most frequently on your blog. How do you know who does this most often? Good question!

You will find your Top Recent Commenters on your site stats page on the bottom, right corner. If you do not see this, click on the Screen Options in the top, right corner and be sure that “Comments” is checked. If you are good about responding to every comment, then you will be the first one in the list. It is the next six commenters on the list that you will nominate and pass this award to. But wait! You may nominate one more person. This person can either be a brand new commenter on your blog, the very last comment you have received (most recent), or the one who has posted your most favorite comments. This seventh nomination is your choice, but please do tell us why you have chosen them as your seventh.

Here are my top “commenters” and I am truly grateful for their continuing support!

Thanks so much, Gabby 🙂


Quotes and Thoughts for April Fool’s Day

Today, April 1st is known as April Fool’s Day and really is marked on the calendar as such! Of course it’s also been referred to as All Fool’s Day. I was always kind of upset over the tradition of playing pranks and jokes on people. It’s supposed to be all in good fun I know, but it still bothers me somewhat. Maybe because some people do tend to get a bit carried away with the jokes, I suppose. Anyway, I don’t take part much in this holiday with the pranks and jokes. Either does Autumn, we are very like minded about this sort of thing. That doesn’t mean we are judging those who do or anything, because to each his own. We are all different of course and everyone has to do their own thing, right? Not trying to rain on anyone’s April Fool’s Day parade, honestly! I did find 5 quotes based on April Fool’s Day, those were hard to find! So I also added 5 quotes concerning fools to share with you kind readers. Just keep in mind, if you are fooling around and planning on playing some not very nice pranks do think again, please. Try to make it light and funny and just no downright mean or nasty practical jokes! Keep that joking and all under control, everyone will be much happier I’m sure! 🙂 Happy April 1st to all! 🙂
