The harder, better, faster, stronger award + Ebook deals

I’ve been nominated for the Harder, Better, Faster Stronger Award by A buckeye girl reads, and in Gini Koch’s own words-it  was created to honor those whose blogs who exemplify the qualities Katherine “Kitty” Katt has — those who always stay cutting edge, who always find the fun, the funny, and the cool, and who are always one step ahead of the competition. 
I usually do not accept awards, but this is Gini Koch people 😀 And you can win stuff! I love winning so yes of course I proudly accept this award 😀
But who to nominate? There are so many kickass bloggers out there.
I could continue since this was not the end of awesome bloggers, I just know too many.
Your mission details: 
  1. Slap the graphic on your blog.
  2. Give link props to the person who gave you the award (keep the hard, best, fast and strong on your side!).
  3. Spread the awesome and nominate five (5) other bloggers who you think exemplify what it means to be cool, fun and cutting edge.
  4. Let the recipients know they’ve won this honor on their blogs.
  5. Last but not least, shoot Gini Koch an email at and let her know you’re the best of the best of the best, sir! (put “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” in the subject line!) by sharing that you’ve been nominated and telling her which other bloggers you nominated, and she’ll enter you into the “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” Contest.

    *Ana shuffles along in a baggy, mismatched sweatsuit, totally bedraggled and bleary-eyed*So, I am harder, better, faster and stronger now, right? Certainly true, especially if you compare me to an average field mouse…ok, still not sure about the faster bit…I am heavier, though! Heavier counts as well, doesn't it?Thanks for nominating me, I will try to…er… prove worthy of that badge! *wheezy coughs*
