Weekend Gargies: Congratulations go to…..

Yes indeed, I have seen fit to spring a Gargie award presentation on you all!  In case you are unaware, the Gargie awards (also known by their official name, The Order of the Stony Groove) are bestowed upon those deserving individuals (fleshing or otherwise) who have served their community in some important way.

This time around it is a collective award.  Today’s Gargie goes to the hostesses of the Kid Lit Blog Hop!


For those who don’t know, the Kid Lit Blog Hop happens twice a month and is a place for bloggers with any kind of interest in children’s literature or literacy to link up posts and mosey through the posts of others.  I am a regular linker-upper-er, and therefore it is high time I acknowledged the outstanding contribution of this particular hop to bloggers of a bookish persuasion.

The hostesses of this hop (and winners of this round’s Gargie) are listed below for your perusing pleasure:

Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews

Jaymie @ Snacks for Max

Heidi @ Geo Librarian

Sue @ Kid Lit Reviews

Katie @ Youth Literature Reviews

Julie Grasso, Author of Escape From the Forbidden Planet/Blogger

Congratulations to all!  The requirements of the Gargie award are entirely non-onerous and optional, but for those who are interested and prepared to take on the challenge, here they are.

1. Display the award badge prominently  on your site….if you want…and link back to the person who nominated you…for courtesy’s sake.

2. Publish a post to inform the world of your great achievement…..unless you can’t be bothered.

3. Nominate some fellow bloggers (who have been outstanding in their field…figuratively or literally) and tell us the particular way in which they have excelled….if you feel inclined.

4. Indicate to your nominees that they have received the award….provided you have completed step three.

Now I must away and indulge in some form of relaxing beverage before the excitement causes my horns to fracture.

Until next time,

  1. Bruce, just wanted to tell you that I am so excited about this Gargie! I know this is a week late, but thank you so much for showcasing the Kid Lit Blog Hop on your site. I hope a few of your readers will become new linker-uppers! I will post the badge on Snacks for Max and let everyone know how excited Max and I are to receive the award. Thanks again! and Happy Easter!


  2. Aw shucks! Thanks so much Bruce. You have been such a big supporter of our little old Hop and it means alot to us that you’ve giving us this great shoutout. We humbly accept the Gargie and will post the badge on our site and in our next Hop. 🙂 Sorry for the delay in responding as we have been away for the last 2 weeks.


  3. Thank you for this highest og honour. I only now read the post you left. No, it was not a snub. Goodness gracious no! I never thought anyone would comment on my about page and so I never looked until I received a message from wordpress to take a look — today.

    So thank you. I am honoured. When I get a break fr om the Fall release schedule I will most assuredly pass this on. Now, please go get another refreshing drink. On me, but please not literally. 🙂
