Riehlife recieves the Superior Scribble Award

Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett’s blog supports women writing their memoirs. They just gave me a wonderful compliment by announcing that they have chosen Riehlife as one of their five top picks for the Superior Scribbler Award.

Here’s how they described Riehlife:

Janet Riehl — an artist in the best and broadest sense of the word, creating art with objects, with words and with music. We give this award for Janet’s constant source of inspiration and creativity found in each of her blogs. She helps us not get stuck in a single creative rut. In true creative fashion, she transformed her memoir “Sightlines: A Poet’s Diary, ” (told in story poems) into an audio version. “Sightlines: A Family Love Story in Poetry and Music” includes 4-CDs filled with singing, fiddles, mandolin, and guitar as well as Janet’s story poems, truly an expanded family love story.

One of the rules for Superior Scribbler Award recipients is that they pass the award on to five other noteworthy bloggers. That’s not an easy task. But, here goes. Keep reading to find out the five blogs I’m choosing for my Superior Scribbler awards. Some of my picks, like Susan Tweit have already been tapped.


Here are the rules for Passing on the Superior Scribbler Award:
1. Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Blogging friends.
2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom he/she has received the Award.
3. Each Superior Scribbler must display the Award on his/her blog, and link to this post, which explains the Award.
4. Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
