Just Another Nice Girl

What a way to start a Monday! Hardly any traffic, no honking bus driver, AND I come to find that Alynda, another nice blogger, nominated me for the Nice Matters Award. Isn't she nice? (Let's see how many times I can get the word 'nice' in by the end of this post, k? So far we're at five.)

Since she was nice enough to pass her nomination along, I thought I'd do the same and nominate a few bloggers that I think are nice and deserving of this prestigious badge on their webpage. Instead of taking the easy route and saying MY ENTIRE BLOGROLL (since you all are completely deserving, of course), I'm going to narrow it down to 3.

  1. Rachel AKA "Puremotif" - This girl has been a friend of mine (outside of the blogging world) since college and is one of the nicest people I've ever met. Not only did she talk to me when I worked up the nerve to approach her on our first day of college, she also has become one of my best friends and fellow "designer in crime". Love you Rach! BDFFs :)
  2. Libby AKA "Chasing Libby" - Not only does this girl share my passion for reading (chic lit of course), but she is super nice! She has taken our Blogging Book Club by the horns and got the ball rolling. Seriously though, she never fails to have an interesting blog posted when I show up for work in the morning, AND she always reciprocates comments of her blog visitors. Gotta love her.
  3. Molly AKA "These Little Moments" - One of the first blogs I started reading via BlogHer and loved her blog right away. Her posts were completely relateable to my life as a fellow twenty-something and knew I would become a frequent reader of her blog. So nice, and she visits the blogs of most commenters to her site as well - and there are many!

So that wraps up my nominations. And Alynda, does receiving this award mean that I have to be nice the rest of the year?! I kid, I kid.

This post has been brought to you by the word "nice" - 13 appearances.
And here are synonyms for the word nice just to prove that I do know some:
  • charming
  • becoming
  • swell
  • kind
  • friendly
  • pleasant
  • cordial

Let's keep the 'nice' list going folks... Happy Monday!

I'd have to agree with your choices for nicest-Libby and Molly are both wonderful bloggers, as are you--glad I found you guys on here!! I do not know Rachel but since you have been nominated nicest I will trust your judgement :)

Hope your week goes as well as the start of your monday! (I think the honking bus driver moved to my neighborhood this morning, someone was outside honking their horn at 6am. Oh wait, I live in NYC. Everyone honks.)

WOWWWW!!!! I'm sooo excited AND flattered! I never win anything! I didn't even know we could get 'awards' does getting this badge work? YAY! You cheered me right up girlfriend :)
Thank you!!

One of my favourite synonyms to nice is winsome. It reminds me of Jane Austen for some reason. (The pioneer of chick-lit no?)

I've added you to my blogroll too. Can't wait to start reading!

I was tempted to count how many times you wrote nice but you beat me to it!:)

DG said...

I agree! You ladies are all nice! Congrats!

Princess Pointful said...

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to use the word cordial in a sentence today!

And, congrats! You are indeed a swell lady ;)
