Hello! I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award, for being so encouraging to me in this blogging and writing world. Yes, I know you won’t want to be called ‘Sunshine’, but there you go… 😉 Details can be found here: http://wp.me/p3iouk-5F xx
Hey Karen!! What are you doing to me, ruining my image with sunshine & unicorns like this?? lol Thank you very much, I’ll look into these so-called happy details 😛
Now don’t get carried away – there were no unicorns! I guess we could change it to the Thunderstorm Blogger Award for you. That would suit your image better. 😉

Hey Joe. Just passed the torch onto you to show off a bit. Don’t feel obligated. http://www.jaymerayne.com/meet-my-character-blog-tour/
Hi Jayme! 🙂 Thank you very much! But I don’t know what this is all about lol Please explain when you can; sorry, going nuts with my book tour!
It’s an opp to show off one of your book characters. Just sending some folks to your site to check out your writing. 🙂 Enjoy your tour!
You’re a sweetheart, Jayme! Thank you!! 🙂
Your energy is contagious Joseph !!
Hi Rika! 🙂 Welcome aboard, and thank you very much! Good energy is always something you should be infected with 😉
A pleasure to meet you Joseph. I’ve enjoyed the “entertainment” so far and plan to come back for more. Thanks for visiting and following my blog!
Likewise, Bev 😊 you’re always welcomed here so grab a comfy chair 😊
Heyyy Joseph ! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for the follow. I must say, what an interesting page you have got ! It’s fantastic. Your writings are amazing and I look forward to reading more from you. Hope you would keep sparing time to read my poems. Please do visit again.
My very best to you for all your endevours !
Hey Chhaya! Thank you for the follow in turn! I appreciate it…and I certainly plan on reading your prose 🙂
Thanks so much Joseph ! It’s a pleasure to connect with you 🙂
Likewise, Chhaya 🙂 Are you anywhere else (IG, Twitter, etc…)? 🙂
Heyyy Joseph….I am too bad with using social media. I am on FB, but not as a poet. May be soon I will take a plunge into IG and twitter and then let you know. I just feel that it would require a lot of time to manage my posts on so many fronts. My hectic job schedule hardly leaves me with much time. Thanks for asking 🙂
Trust me, I understand! I wish in a way that I wasn’t on any of them, but, we need to get our work out there somehow, someway 🙂
I agree. I would soon give them a try. Thanks Joseph for being so encouraging 🙂
You’re welcome! 🙂
