The Passionate Blogger Award!

Hello my followers and guest stopping by,

This is a first for me. I am either blogging once a week or later than that. This is going to be the first time I blogged six days apart, but I am just so excited and wanted to pass the joy around! My blog buddy Lil, Bowling Borderline Lil (, gave me a special award that means a lot to me. She also said something really nice about me that touched my heart! I wanted to pass it along because Lil says I get to pick five people. Thanks again Lil, you don’t know how much this means to me!

This is who I choose: I want to honor: Amber, Gaining insight ( She is the one that got me started blogging and gave me great tips and advice on how to get my blog read by all the wonderful people that read my blog and make my blog worth reading. Right now Amber just had her first child (Lucas Joshua) so she hasn’t been blogging for a while, but Amber is passionate about helping the mental health community. She also has awesome artwork, check that out!

I also want to honor: Ashley, Overcoming Schizophrenia ( She is so passionate about being active in the mental health community. Ashley has started support groups and been on a local radio station to promote mental health awareness. She uses her blog to tell us about all the exciting stuff going on in her journey to help others. Ashley is also special to me because she is a paranoid schizophrenic just like me!

I also want to honor: J.B.R., Just Be Real ( This person is one of my favorite religious bloggers. J.B.R. struggles with an abusive past and is in therapy. However, this person uses Jesus in a big way. J.B.R. inspires me to be myself and let Jesus heal me. Also with all the followers J.B.R. has this person always answer my comments and I am being a little selfish here, but this person always reads my blog too!

I also want to honor: Charlie, Professor B. Worm ( He makes me laugh. I also get to indulge in my next love only second to Jesus and that’s literature! Some of you may not know, but I have a B.A. in Literature. Charlie reviews great books and some not so great (so we don’t have to waste time reading them). Also when he is passionate about something he will blog about it. Check out his most recent one about Arizona and racism going out there.

Finally I want to honor: The Soulmate Guide ( This is one of my new followings. I don’t know if it works, but I am sure finding the steps interesting. When your thirty years old and never been really in love with a good person, you need all the help you can get!

Sorry everyone, I don’t know how to put links on my page like Lil did so that’s why I wrote the addresses for you, because these are some passionate bloggers you should check out. And if Lil hadn’t given the award to me then I would have given it to her! All those awarded could copy the picture and put in on their post and honor five other deserving passionate bloggers! Thanks.


  1. Lady Amanda, I am honored to accept the Passionate Blogger Award. Not to mention surprised and pleased.

    You have made tremendous strides in your life, most of it a passion to not let you illness take over your life. May you continue to make passionate, positive changes.

    Thank you so much.

  2. Hi Amanda. Thank you for such nice words. I am touched. Thank you for honoring me as well. Many blessings to you dear.

  3. Charlie,

    Why are you suprised? Reading your articles about important things, like the racism in Arizona or I remember time you wrote about Catholic school, a person can really tell that you have passion for what you believe in! Also your my only Lit. blog buddy and Lit is my passion!


    Thank you for your blessings! Say a prayer for me too because that's why I picked you. You pray with passion and are so in touch with God!

    Hugs my blog buddies,

  4. Amanda, appreciate your comment, thank you. I am a "she." :)

  5. Lady Amanda,
    Congratulations on your award! Also, I have followed Ashley's and Amber's blogs for a long time and am glad you awarded the awards to them as well. Take care and keep writing!


  6. Sorry JBR and Jen for not getting back sooner!

    J.B.R. - thanks for telling me your a lady! No wonder I relate to you so well;)
