Passing on a couple of awards!

Last night I posted about several awards I received recently and there are a couple I wanted to pass on...

So I was curious to see how many comments I’ve gotten in the last two months, in part because I want to pass on the You Don’t Say Super Comments Award to my top commenters. But unfortunately the Top Commenter widget for Blogger just doesn’t love me (in other words, it doesn’t work at all on my blog), so I had to count all my comments manually (!). If I calculated correctly (and I was getting a bit cross-eyed at the end), my blog received 500 comments in the last two months from 135 different commenters! (Can that be right?) It’s no wonder I’ve been having trouble keeping up!

My top commenters to whom I award the You Don’t Say Super Comments Award (as well as the award below*) are:

Kathy at Bermudaonion’s Weblog (30 comments)
Missy at Missy’s Book Nook (22 comments)
Jo-Jo at Jo-Jo Loves to Read (20 comments)
Jen (Ladytink) at Up Close & Personal with Ladytink (19 comments)
Jessica Marie at Books Love Jessica Marie (17 comments)
Ti at Book Chatter (16 comments)
Cindy at Cindy’s Love of Books (14 comments)
Jenners at Find Your Next Book Here (14 comments)
Mary at Bookfan-Mary (12 comments)
Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit (12 comments)
Wendy (Literary Feline) at Musings of a Bookish Kitty (11 comments)
Luanne at A Bookworm’s World (11 comments)
Natalie at Book, Line & Sinker (11 comments)

Since I did these calculations late last night, it’s possible I’ve missed a few comments (although I did double-check all the top contenders).

And just because I can, I’m going to award the 2009 Friendly Blogger Award to all of the above AND to the runners-up:

Anna at Diary of an Eccentric (9 comments)
Donna (Myckyee) at BookBound (9 comments)
Jess at Barney’s Book Blog (9 comments)
Wendi B. at Wendi’s Book Corner (8 comments)
Marie at Boston Bibliophile (8 comments)
Melissa at Shhh I’m Reading (8 comments)

Whether you’ve commented once or 30 times (thanks, Kathy!), I do appreciate every single comment! Thank you all!

*In case it’s not clear, I’m giving both the You Don’t Say Super Comments Award AND the 2009 Friendly Blogger Award to the bloggers in this first list.


  1. awwww thank you! I don't think I have received that award yet ... and I can't believe that I have commented that many times! ^_^

  2. Thanks Avis! As for the Pimp My Profile, I wanted to make a Friday Finds banner and that was the best that I could come up with!

    Hope that you have a great weekend!

  3. It's so nice of you to pass these awards on to me as well. I try really heard to submit thoughtful comments whenever I can so I really appreciate the nod.

  4. Jessica Marie and Missy, I hope it was clear that I'm giving you both awards. I added a note at the bottom of the post to try to make it clearer! Thanks again to both of you for all your comments!

  5. Thanks again, Ti! As I've said before, I don't always get around to replying to every single one of the comments I receive (although I try to!), but I do appreciate them all!

  6. Thanks Avis...You always have great stuff on your blog so I'm usually impelled to leave a comment!

  7. Thank you for the award!! And Kathy certainly deserves both! I always see her lovely comments and smile. :)

  8. You're so sweet to think of me! Thank you. Have a lovely weekend (and I hope it included some good reading time).

  9. Thanks so much for the great award!

  10. Congratulations on your awards! I'm flattered to be one of those your passing one of them on to.

  11. Thanks Avis I love the award. Its always a pleasure to come and read your blog. See you on the 14th.

  12. One of the best parts of reading about (or receiving...) one of these awards is that you get to follow links to more blogs!

  13. Well thank you so much!!! I guess those comments paid off! : )

    though no one can ever beat Bermudaonion! She is the most amazing commenter ever!

  14. Thanks so much, Avis! That's so kind of you. I've been feeling like such a bad visitor lately--not only on your blog, but others I visit. I haven't been able to get around as much as I like. I know it's silly to feel bad about that. You've certainly brightened my day!

  15. Avis!! Well first off - I can't believe you counted them all manually! And second - Thank you so very very much!! I'm very very flattered. Not one but two!

  16. thanks so much for the award! i'm going to create a page to house my awards if i keep getting so many!

    i can't believe you counted the comments by hand--talk about dedication!

    as for commenting, i know that i rely on feedback and know other bloggers do too! cheers!

  17. Thanks so much! I've been bad at commenting lately, though. It seems with work getting crazy and The Girl out of school, I hardly have any time for blog reading! :(
