Sojourner's Place

thursday thirteen: much obliged and paying forward  

Posted by SjP in , , ,

Much obliged to my blogging sister, Danielle Vyas of, for revitalizing this weekly meme called Thursday Thirteen. The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Danielle used this meme to recognize her
Twitter "friends and followers". I'm so glad to be among her "crew" and in fact, she was the first to begin to follow me on Twitter. Much obliged Danielle, still learning how to make Twitter work for me :>).

Anyway, the last couple of weeks have brought Sojourner's Place several blogging surprises including nominations for the
Black Blog and Black Weblog Awards, the recipient of a Rising Blogger Award for the Saggin' Pants post, moving up in Villagers BBR to 114 out of 1329 blogs, and reaching a Technorati Authority over 100! All this, and Monday (8/11) is my birthday! Whoopie!

So, in coming up with my Thursday Thirteen, I am passing on the second The Emblem of the Helping Hand to 13 bloggers who have shown Sojourner's Place much love and support. Much obliged y'all for all you do! Go here to find out more about the Emblem and how to display it on your site.

Much obliged to each and everyone of you! Couldn't do it without you!

Thank you so much. I really appreciate this and I must say that I have learned a great deal from you too. You have raised my awareness on a lot of issues, including the AIDS epidemic. Continue doing your thing! Thanks for the award. As they say in Jamaica, "nuff respects!"

What a beautiful award and I am honored to receive it. How thoughtful of you to use Thursday Thirteen this way (I liked Danielle's Twitter idea as well) and will proudly display it in Bloggingham's trophy room. You really have something special here, Sojourner. I am a fan!

Thank you again. As you say, much obliged.
