Posts Tagged ‘Award Nominations’

Eunice of Living and Lovin just received two awards, the Super Sweet Blogging Award and the Beautiful Blogger Award.  So, double Congratulations Eunice!  You deserve this high place in the sun!  I encourage everyone to stop by and check out her blog because it’s a smorgasbord of interesting thoughts, photos, crafts, and adventure stories.  Now she has gone and nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award too, and I am truly honored.

Sometimes I believe my blogger friends are out there specifically to inspire creativity in others.   And I find myself writing specifically to the one who laughs, the one who makes me laugh, another who shares my fears and aggravations,  she who calls me “sister” for all we have in common, and still another who is my true mentor.  These are the friends who are so inspiring –  the photographer and the poet, the adventuress, the comic, the empty nest mom – some struggling with loss, others celebrating joy – all sharing their lives with words and photographs hurling through cyberspace.  They are the cyberspace givers who make blogging all worthwhile.

Part of the Beautiful Blogger Award is to nominate other beautiful bloggers.  The hard part is choosing just seven, but  the best part is in recognizing all that talent. So, I am nominating seven to receive The Beautiful Blogger Award.  They are all awesomely beautiful for a million different reasons, and I know you will love visiting them:

I Blog Therefore I Am

A Serene Scribe

The Coastal Crone

Lori Lipski/Poetry Club

Life With the Top Down

Lake Superior Spirit

Morristownmemos

If I nominated you, and you choose to participate (no pressure!) here are the rules:

1)      Write a post about the award and include the award picture.

2)      Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

3)      Nominate seven other blogs and include links as well as a quick statement about that blog.

4)      Write a comment on each of the blogs to tell them you nominated them.

5)      Have fun!

Congratulations to CathyG of Comments from Cathy on receiving the One Lovely Blog award AND the Versatile Blogger award – a “double hitter!”  Now that is real proof!  Cathy’s blog is definitely impressive and she is a fine friend to find in the blog-us-fear!

Awards are the gold stars for us bloggers.  They matter because they are further confirmation that our friends are looking.  And we must have something that touches our invisible family of followers – a special way of capturing life in photographs, of expressing thoughts and emotions in words.  So Thank You Cathy for including me in your list to receive both of these wonderful awards.  They matter.

Sometimes we receive the same awards more than once.  This is the double hitter that is twice as gratifying because it’s like saving the last delicious bite for later.  It’s the second time around for me and ever more special.

So, if you are on my list below of admired bloggers and you have already received the two awards, rejoice!  You are well loved.  You can follow the rules again or just wallow in all the admiration.  And if you are on the list and have not received one or both of these awards, rejoice!  You can still wallow because you are a Double Hitter!

Your rules are:

Thank the blogger who nominated you,

Provide a link to his/her site,

Share seven things about yourself (no, not 14!),

Nominate seven (no, not 14!) other bloggers for the award(s) and notify them of the nomination(s),

And – you can post an award badge or both badges to your own site (optional).

So. “open the envelope please.”

Here are my nominations for both the ONE LOVELY BLOG award and/or THE VERSATILE BLOGGER award:

Bless Your Hippie Heart

A Daily Thought

Before Morning Breaks

Lydia Street

An Observant Mind

Believe Anyway

Finally, although I have offered up seven things about myself before, I can’t resist doing it once more.

1)      I dream in color!

2)      I have always wanted a fireplace, but settled for a wood stove instead (more practical).

3)      There is no place like home.

4)      I once traveled in my work at a time when getting there was half the fun.

5)      Now writing takes me to other worlds.

6)      I love my friends in cyberspace and want to sign my comments, “Luv, Dor,” like in a real letter, but isn’t that too personal for someone I have never met in person?

7)      I don’t “text,” but I’m thinking about it.  By the time I am cutting edge, we may be sending messages by brain waves.

Luv, Dor
