Thank you Bryan, of Can Bryan Write? for nominating me for this Most Influential Blogger award and for giving me the opportunity to pass it on to some whose words or whose talents have impacted me — my moods, my thoughts, my opinions and/or my writing and presentation.
Our dogs brought us together, and I am so glad they did. I had a wonderful time in his thoughts, poetry, and images.
I try to write for myself, not thinking about visits, likes, and comments, but I have to admit, your acknowledgement, my first award, means a lot to me.

2. Announce your win with a post and thank the Blogger who awarded you.
3. Present 10 deserving Bloggers with the Award.

5. Answer each of the 10 questions that your awarder asked, and then write 10 for your awardees or use the same ones up to you. OR

My choices for Most Influential Blogger are
seaandskyny.com — he presents his work so that all can understand it, and because he showed me that there is well-researched information on the internet.
myvoyagethroughtime.wordpress.com — she keeps me in the loop on archival affairs
mselenalevontraveling.com — her blog pushed me to try adding photographs
persephonesstepsisters.wordpress.com — she validated my bluestocking past
shawnbird.com — they are Award Free Blogs and I’ve got to consider this
wendyquinn.wordpress.com — one and the same person, who has validated the energy and time that I have put into my writing, and introduced me to great humorists womenshockeyjournal.wordpress.com — she has this very specific passion she writes about and gives us no inkling of who she is. I’d like to be able to write without using the word “I”.
