Well, What Have We Here?

Because what this post really needed was a cat picture.
So are y'all getting a little tired of the series I've been posting, or have they been enjoyable? My five-part Avengers review ends tomorrow, although H2WaMM has three more posts to go. I might post a book review next week for a little change of pace.

It's been a while since I updated my Blogs You Should Visit page, so I did that over the weekend to include some of my new favorite blogs. I also cleaned it up a little to remove any blogs that had stopped posting, moved, or just stopped altogether. I realized I hadn't updated it since the A-to-Z challenge, during which I followed a lot of new blogs.

So go check it out, and let me know if you find any new favorites!

On Thursday Lisa Campbell left my 500th comment! I know for some of you bloggers it may not seem like a lot (Alex J. Cavanaugh gets about 100 comments per post, so he's probably up in the millions now) but it's very gratifying for me. Thank you to everyone who comments and continues to leave comments! I love to hear what you have to say.

Becky from Braveheart is currently writing a series that I very much like. It's called Ministry or Malarkey, and it explores whether fiction (malarkey) can help people reach God (ministry). So far she's posted on Christian Inspirational Fiction and Parables. Looking forward to her post tomorrow!

My sister Ava won a photo editing contest over at Randocology! Hop on over to her blog and congratulate her. And then maybe help her boost her follower count...

Speaking of followers, Jenn, who recently gave me the One Lovely Blog Award, also gave me the Liebster Award - an award designed to recognize and promote blogs that have less than 200 followers. Jenn has just reached 100 followers herself, and is hosting a giveaway! Go tell her congrats and enter to win either a $15 or $10 Amazon gift card.

Now, to accept the award:

Thank the person that gave it to you. Thanks so much, Jenn!
Link back to their blog. Jenn's lovely blog, Scribbles from Jenn.
Put the award in your blog. See sidebar.
Present the award to 3-5 blogs with less than 200 followers.*
Leave a comment to let those blogs know that you've recognized their awesomeness!*

*Okay, I'm going to do awarding a little differently this time. Instead of picking 3-5 blogs (choosing blogs is always hard!) or even just holding out an open invitation, I'm going to go with this:

If you have less than 200 followers, and your blog is on my Blogs You Should Visit list, then I nominate you for this award! So go see if you're on the list, and then leave me a link if you decide to pick it up. 

By the way, have you reviewed The Avengers on your blog? I'm collecting reviews to link to in my final Avengers post this Wednesday. If you wrote a review or found one that you enjoyed, leave me a link and I'll include it!

This is Lauren, signing off....

(because cat pictures are like potato chips; you can't have just one)


  1. Aaahhh I love your header!!! <333

  2. Thanks for the kitties, the Avengers posts, and putting me on your Blogs You Should Visit page. Todays my birthday so it was a cool present.

  3. Congratulations on your award. LOVE your cat quote.

  4. I did review the AVengers. Here is my link. http://missjacklewisbaillot.blogspot.com/2012/05/hes-my-brother-hes-killed-eighty-people.html
    I found a lot of reviews I liked, but I don't remember which blogs they were on....

    Oh! I'm going to look at your sister's blog!

  5. Thanks so much for having my blog on your list! I'm glad you enjoy it. :-)

    I wanted to do a review of sorts of Avengers, but so many people did it that I didn't think I had something to add.

  6. Lauren... I finally put today's up.

    Pst. It's about SEX. Seriously.

    Loved having you visit and now I see you're talking about me! Yay!!! I LOVE it! And for putting me on your Blogs to Visit page too. I need to go do a page like that - great for networking!

    So, are we going to get to see pictures soon?

  7. Thank you so much for putting my blog on your list! So grateful. Congrats on the award...and thanks for the generosity! :)
