Versatile Bloggers

It's fun to take a moment to just yell THANK YOU to all the fantastic writing bloggers out there who have filled me with knowledge and inspiration. You all make me think, dream, and work harder. Hooray for Ye Olde Blogosphere.

I'm yelling with gratitude and not because I'm being tortured by a physical therapist. I had hip replacement surgery on Monday, and I'm sure there has been plenty of yelling since then, but this THANK YOU is good yelling.

THANK YOU. Oops, I'm still yelling. Must be the pain meds. 

For the record I am about 20+ years younger than most people who have hip replacement surgery.  I plan on beating all the older patients in a footrace by post-surgery day three.

I'll compose myself and stop yelling now. Thank you (see how refined I can be) to Carolyn Arnold for honoring me with the Versatile Blogger award.  

I'm jazzed to pay it forward to some blogger folks I've been e-hanging out with these days:

  1. Arlee Bird Check out her TOSSING IT OUT blog and scroll down to enjoy the Blogging A-Z challenge that took place in April.
  2. Deana Barnhart
  3. Ebony McKenna
  4. From the Write Angle
  5. Tina Moss
  6. Write on Teens
Forgive me in advance for not responding to posts this week. I'm probably re-learing how to put my socks on with a long grabber stick. 


  1. Congrats on being a versatile blogger. :D

  2. Leslie - I can't wait till you get all better because then I can be all like "yeah, that's my bionic friend. Don't mess with me." So cool.

  3. Awwww, Leslie, once you're hip is healed you'll be versatile in lots of way. I know you won't read this for a while, but take care my friend.

  4. Leslie, please recover quickly. You're in my thoughts and prayers. - Laurisa

  5. YAY! Congrats on the award! :D
    And I'm sending good vibes to your hip!! <3

  6. Thank you, Julie,Lisa,Laurie,Monica, and Stina. Wating for the bionics to kick in. Haven't found the turbo switch on my walker yet.

  7. Yikes, hip replacement already. Good luck with that & congrats on your versatile blogger award. Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  8. I can't believe you're blogging! Must be the MEDS! Good luck on that recovery and thanks for stopping in at the Write Game to say hi! I'm now following you and I'll have to come back because A) I love your humor and B) I want to see how that grabber thingy worked.

  9. My pleasure, Joyce. I'll be popping by your blog again.

    Thanks, Lee for the follow and putting up with my silliness. Stay tuned for grabber updates.

  10. Aww Leslie, this is so sweet of you to give me an award. Thanks so much!!!

    I'm in total agreement with the amazing people we get to meet and the slew of info we learn from them...and all through blogging!

  11. Congrats on the award! And I hope your recovery is speedy and painless (much like the footrace). :)

  12. Thanks, Susan. So far so good. It's so nice to be back with my laptop. I felt disconnected in the hospital.

    Here, here, Deana.
