I’ve just discovered that Julie at Happy Catholic has awarded me the coveted Lemonade Stand Award:


The rules are as follows, so I am given to understand:

1) Put the Lemonade Award logo on your blog or post.
2) Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.
3) Link to your nominees within your post.
4) Let the nominees know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5) Share the love and link to the person from whom you received your award.

I say “coveted”; in fact, this is yet another of those award memes, where you receive the award, and then turn around and award it to X other bloggers you happen to like, where X is less than the number of bloggers the rules say you’re supposed to award it to. I’m grateful, of course, but I’m tempted to pass the award along to everyone on my blogroll, as a witness to my bad attitude. Unfortunately, there are too many blogs on my blogroll; and most of them are fairly high-profile already.

Instead, I’m going to pass it along to the two blogs I’m learning the most from these days:

    Hi, I’m RAnn and I’d like to invite you to participate in Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival. It is a successor to the Catholic Carnival run by Jay at Living Catholicism for many years. It is a way to share our best posts with the Catholic blogging community. Each week, I will create a Sunday Snippets post that includes Mr. Linky. If you want to participate, create a post on your blog highlighting your best post(s) of the week, and linking both to them and to the master post on my blog. Then, go to my blog and use Mr. Linky to link us to your post. This week’s post is http://rannthisthat.blogspot.com/2009/05/sunday-snippets-catholic-carnival_09.html

    I have been asked by people who post infrequently if they can just use Mr. Linky to link directly to their featured post, without creating a Sunday Snippets post. Since one purpose of Sunday Snippets is for bloggers to share their posts with those who do not regularly read their blog, and to share their readers with other bloggers, if you choose to do that, please include a link to Sunday Snippets in your post. If you click on Luuk’s name on this week’s post, you’ll see someone who does that.
    If you’d like a weekly reminder to participate, you may subscribe to our yahoogroup. A link is at the bottom of this week’s post.
