I’ve been awarded the “Schmooze” award by Peter. I quote: “Schmoozing as defined by is the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Peter is more of a Schmoozer than I am I think, not many bloggers offer their female readers a virtual bouquet of roses. He’s from Switzerland, the French part, so I can just imagine his French accent….Thank you Peter for nominating me.

Now comes the hard part; I have to nominate 5 new Schmoozers, hoping that I nominate them before someone else does. In alphabetical order:

Alec Millard: A fellow postcard lover, always on hand with information and really beautiful cards. His blog has helped me a lot with my own postcard blog and business.

Because I Can: A very special Schmoozer who has had difficult times but rises from the ashes like an elegant phoenix! (She also has very good news!)

Life after Nexcom. Mary Lou has introduced me to so many new bloggers. She works hard on her theatre productions despite suffering great pain form her back. Her descriptions and pictures of her part of the world are second to none (any friend of William Least Heat Moon is a friend of mine).

Is it raining? I hadn’t noticed Now changed to Spooky's Blog: Spooky is grey with yellow eyes but we still love him and his wonderful sense of humour.

The Introverted Exhibitionist: Is an Empress, no less! She comes from an established dynasty of bloggers and replies to comments without fail.

All of my 52 friends on my blogroll are worth a visit, what I pity I only had to choose five!

Hi Anji and congratulations on the award - I'll make sure I check out the blogs you've nominated.

From one schmoozer to another, many thanks
(there I go again, schmoozing, I just can't help it)

Loz: thanks, I hope you enjoy them!

Spooky: A natural born schmoozer.

Good list. The Introverted Exhibitionist is part of my blog family, AND part of my "real" family. I've been schmoozed by her more than once.

And I am known by a few people as "Queen of Schmooze" myself. It's kind of necessary in my job. Maybe it's a family trait.

Have a great day!

cas: Schmooze runs in the blood perhaps?
