Schmooze Time

Schmoozing as defined by as the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation.

Schmooze is also a very nice word to just pronounce....S C H M O O Z E, go ahead, say it! See!

There's also lots of words that rhyme with it which makes it very versitile. I'll spare you a poem right now, but I intend to write one some day...hehe.

I believe we all love to shmooze here in the here's to schmoozing!

Apparently I "schmooze"! Loving Annie seems to think so because she has lovingly bestowed the ole "Schmoozer Award" on me.
Okay folks, here are the Schmooze rules:

1. If, and only if, you get The Power of Schmooze Award, write a post with links to 5 blogs that have schmoozed you into submission.

Five of the best Schmoozers I know and I know lots of smoozers, for sure......

Roger-Oger the Cave Man - He makes me laugh
Deb-Boondoggled - My blog idol.
CEO - just because.
Lala - Young and in love.
Maria(Laugh More, Love More), sweet and intense
