Lansy over at A Drop of Tear In Heaven gave me this award. Thank you girl, I am honored that you thought of me. I certainly felt my biceps growing as you sent this over to me =)

So what does it mean to be schmoozed? Well according to Lansy schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.

A Drop of Tear in Heaven is one of my favorite places to be. Whenever I feel a little blue I just go over to her place and her witty and most-often funny repertoir manages to chase my blues away. Her blog is about her life, her travels and some of the "laws" she learned in life.

In accordance; I gladly pass the Power of Schmooze Award onto the following Good Schmoozers in the blogosphere:

  • Cotojo of Life - my daily dose of laughter and inspiration. Have a visit and I promise you that you will have a truly "wickedly" wonderful experience.

  • Dream Catcher of The Augmented Reality - if you want beautiful prose and poetry then this is the place to be.

  • Jan Pieter of Only GOD keeps me Going - writes beautiful inspirational stories and quotes.

  • Louann of 3 Boys and A Lady - the very first person who schmoozed me. I love her for making contact and for making me hooked as I watched over what happens to her life and her beautiful family.

  • Shelly of This Eclectic Life - This wonderful woman has been one of the first blogs I came across in the blogosphere and the moment I stepped in I was hooked. This lady has a heart as big as Texas! Maybe even bigger with her contributions to Share-A-Square helping people with cancer. Although someone already schmoozed her, I think she deserves to get more than one serving. =)

  • There are so many others I have meet who have been a part of my life as a blogger who deserve the Power of Schmooze Award; unfortunately I am only allowed to give out five. For everyone else, thank you for all your “meaningful conversations”!

    God bless everyone!

    Congratulations, Sophia! Lansy's definition of schmoozing really fits you. You were one of the first visitors at my blog. In fact, you were the first. And it made me smile to see you took time out to comment on my very first entry. You've become like an inspiration to me for doing that. So let me thank you for making a wordpress newbie like me welcome in the whole wide blogosphere.
