MORE AWARDS!! If only I could figure out how to proudly display them on sidebar!

The lovely Miss Eileen at But She’s Crazy…(, one of my most favoritest bloggers, bestowed a new award upon my blog. I am totally 100% stealing the format she invented, so here goes:

Readers appreciate Not Quite Lost? To think where my self esteem might have been if I’d started years ago…

Eileen’s set of rules come from yet another magical blog, The Bipolar Place.

1. Include the award logo somewhere in your blog. (Check)
2. Answer these 10 questions, below, for fun if you want to.
3. Nominate 10 to 12 blogs you enjoy. Or you pick the number.
4. Pay the love forward: Provide your nominee’s link in your post and comment on their blog to let them know they’ve been included and invited to participate.
5. Pay the love back with gratitude and a link to the blogger(s) who nominated you. (Check)

1. what is your favorite color?

Greens any and all

2. what is your favorite animal?

Why, Ocelots, of course


3. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?

Vita Coco Coconut Water


That’s 3 of 10. The rest, well, I’m making up my own rules: Please see video:



OK, I nominate, for reader appreciation, all of the blogs I appreciate in no particular order:


My other faves, you probably already have every award ever made (& some of you above too), & I also award it to Dot, in the event I failed to identify her blog….

Thank you bloggers. With love.

    Thank you for the nomination 🙂

  2. Congratulations MM! And I thank you also for the nomination! You deserve an award right about now! Keep posting lovely lady…

  3. Congrats! Lovely award and great pictures.

    If you go to dashboard and click on appearance, you’ll see a category called widgets. click on that one and then look for a widget called “images”. Then drag and drop “images” on your side bar. It opens a little window where you can add the URL of the picture of the award. Add a title and click on save. Then close that little window. Then repeat the process for each one of the awards you want to display on your side bar.

    Hope that helps 🙂

    • You were right, finding stuff in my spam – anyway, I’ve tried this but it doesn’t work – in the past my daughter had to overwrite the html code. But I’m in patient. Maybe when she comes to visit on Sunday! Thanks for taking the time, XOXO

  4. Hey MM.
    Congratulations. By the way I just nominated you for the same award.
    As for how to display them in the side bar here is how I do it for what it is worth…

    1. I save the award graphic to my computer.
    2. Then I upload it to my media library on my blog
    3. Then I make a note of the graphic’s ‘title’
    4. The I copy the file URL for that graphic.
    5. I then go to ‘Dashboard’, then ‘appearance’, then ‘widgets’,
    6. Then I select the ‘Text’ option and slide it across to where I want it in the side bar.
    7. Then I open that ‘Text’ box and put the title of the award as a heading.
    8. In the main window of the Text’ box I place the following script…

    The captial A’s in the above script will need to be lower case I made them capitals here so that they would show and not be read as a script in this comment. The square brackets should not be included in your script.

    9. I then add any additional text I personally want to add.
    10. I then check the ‘automatically add paragraphs’ option and then save and close.
    Going back to your homepage you should then see the graphic where you wanted it.
    Oh by the way, playing with the width and height values will alter the size of the graphic diplayed.

    Hope that all helps and actually shows up properly in this comment..
    Kind regards


    • Dear Kevin,
      This is great, I haven’t tried it. Thank you for the nomination, I only didn’t nominate you bc I saw you were nominated along with me! Or was that the award above? Do you have a cat? Do you like cats? Have you ever seen a cat? Do you think they have soft fur?
      Hope you’re good, we have Irish weather this weekend, makes the think of the old country…no, not really, never been!
      Big cyber-hugs,

      • Hi Jill, Nope I have a dog not a cat and as far as I know – it is impossible to check this much body you understand – I don’t have any fur, although I do have claws but I only ever use them occassionally lol.

        Yes weather is very wet here. Thankfully I am unwell at the moment and so am stuck in bed so the weather really isn’t affecting me too much, Hope the scrpt and instructions were helpful.

        Safe cyber hugs to you too,

      • Hope you feel better soon dear!

  5. Hm it appears the script didn’t show in the comment. Try emailing me at if you like and I can try emailing it to you.

  6. Oh wow, how awesome would a green ocelot be? Unbelievably awesome. Congratulations!
