It's that season again - the award season. There is nothing like getting feel so special and it's even better when you receive it from your friends - there's no feeling like it.
Especially when someone like me who thinks of themselves as a bit socially 'challenged' gets the schmoozer award. I have actually been showing off my awards to my non-blogging friends. [Sometimes I can be such a show-off and a bit sad;)]

I am seriously deciding to live most of my life through the net.. I do so much better on it!!!

So thank you confessing7girl, Hollygl and Blur ting... I am now going to try this schmoozing factor on more people I meet...

Here are the rules:
1. If, and only if, you get the Thinking Blogger Award or The Power of Schmooze Award, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think, or have schmoozed you into submission.
2. Link to
this post and Mike so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative
silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

5 of the Best Schmoozers there are:
I think schmoozer in this context would be someone who always makes an effort to connect to you. I wish I could have added a few more...

1. Quasar9
I have said this once before - his comments always leave me smiling, they are so original and so much fun

2. Josie Two Shoes
I recently came across her blog and am so glad to have met her - she too always says hi

3. Peter Haslem: Not only does he comment on other people's bogs he makes it a point to answer each comment on his own blog

4. Titania Starlight
Who's blog is really cute with amazing giffs and she herself is a very 'enchanting' lady

5. Insanity suits-me
A insanely funny blog and they too always leave great comments

and I know it's breaking the rules [as I must restrict it to 5 but rules are made to be broken right?] so I must add Zakman for he too is the ultimate schmoozer

Most of my other social schmoozers have already received this award. Kisses to you all!!!

Mariuca who has two fantastic blogs, the Mariuca's Perfume Gallery and Mariuca - wishing on a falling star and herself is such a rocking chick; and the cutest and sweetest of bloggers has given me a rocking chick award which I must confess I would glance lovingly at on other rocking bloggers sites!
So a big thank you.

I am going to give this award to a few other absolutely fabulous women I have met on the blogosphere...Paisley, Mariuca and Adria have already won... so

The Real Mother Hen
Blur Ting
Meleah Rebeccah

.... you truly rock!!!!

Epimenides said...

Well done rm! You deserve this! :)

Josie Two Shoes said...

Wow...thanks Amber! Jyankee honored me with this one today too, so that must mean I'm doubly schmoozy! (We're still trying to decide if that's really a good thing, LOL) I love reading your blog, and am always delighted that you take the time to come back and respond to all your comments, even when you have many. So I think you well deserved this award... Congrats!

Peter Haslam said...

Congrats well deserved and thank you for the mention

insanity-suits-me (Dawn) said...

Congrats to you and a big {{{HUG}}} from the twistedsisters! (Dawn and Ann) We love your blog because the topics are so thought provoking and we keep coming back for more! Thanks Amber!

Bobby Revell said...

Woo-hoo! Congratulations Amber! You have got to be the most popular female blogger. You could stop writing posts and still get 150 comments each week! But you do write and you're soooo good at it. Your blog has 1 problem. The template needs to have "you comment, I follow functionality" That way your technorati authority would relect your work. (you'd probably pick up 500 - 1000 new visitors a month. If you need help with what I've told you, I will sure do it:)

Adria Balgassi said...

Everyone agrees. You're fabulous! :)

Blur Ting said...

Thank you, thank you. Getting another award on the same day is a little overwhelming. I love this blogging world. I'm a rocking chick...gee (not gonna tell my kids... they'll ROFL)

Dani said...

thanks for the schmoozy list, I found some interesting blogs from there.. see you around

QUASAR9 said...

Hey Random, thanks for the mention
You got a fun & colourful blogging community going on

PS - so you blogging from the pool outdoor, the sandy beach or the airconditioned indoor pool ... lol!

Random Magus said...

confessing7girl: Hey thank you - you were the one who awarded it to me first...I was very touched!

Epimenides: Thanks and you deserved yours... so glad to be a schmoozer ;)

Josie Two Shoes: It's a good thing... I hope!! Because thats the only way to discover new blogs and make new friends.. which is truly lovely

Peter Haslam: I remember that post of your about net etiquettes... when I started blogging I didn't know about this comment business so if someone left a comment on my blog, I would just visit theirs an leave one there but slowly I realized that commenting is just as vitally alive as is writing your post if not more! For me it forms a huge part of why I love blogging

Random Magus said...

insanity-suits-me (Dawn): And I love yours...

Mrs.The Point: Thank you so much... I love the delicious recipes on your blog

Bobby Revell: Thanks Bobby... how do I get that 'you comment, I follow' functionality?

Adria: Not more than you!!!

Random Magus said...

Blur Ting: You are the ultimate Rocking Girl - one of my first friends here

Dani: I know they're all great and you must check out the rocking girls as well - brilliant

Quasar9: Let's see I'm in my indoor pool with a water proof lap-top and a tall glass of Long Island Iced Tea

The Ultimate Schmoozer said...

OMG... I'm an ultimate schmoozer!!!

I wasn't even aware there's such a word as 'schmoozer' and suddenly I become one!

This seems like a huge responsibility, reputation, image and title to maintain... but, Random, don't worry, I'll not let you down. I'll try and be a good schmoozer.

And thanks so much for the award! It does feel great to be a schmoozer... I think.

-- Who else but Zakman

Random Magus said...

I know you won't ;)

HollyGL said...

Random Magus said...
