Schmooze ...

When Robin at Around the Island gave the Schmooze award to me, I decided before I pass it along, to find out exactly what the original idea was with this award. After reading quite a few blogs that came up when I googled "Schmooze Award", I kept finding the same quoted description. I would have liked to give credit to where it originated, but since it pops up on so many blogs, I too am just going to copy what I've found.

What does it mean to be Schmoozed? Well it is said that schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain or make a social connection.”

It’s an award for those who have the natural ability “to effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way.

They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well.They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”

And here I just thought it was the ability to suck-up *wink*

Maybe you sent me an e-mail or left a comment that you don't quite recall ... I didn't forget it. Thanks for schmoozing me!
