Oh what a lovely award

There are events unique to this wonderful blogosphere in which we all have been adventuring: The giving and receiving of blog awards. Besides being a networking event, the blog awards showcase blogs that haven’t been around as long as some others but merit recognition and attention.

I have been doing some tag surfing as of late; darting here and there. I go for what interests me and delve right in. This is fun stuff for me; every site I visit is like walking into another’s mini universe. Each is as varied as the people, the writers behind them, not only showing diversity of lifestyles and opinion,but bringing to the forefront of what really matters; the fact that we are in actuality more alike than we sometimes believe.  Behind each one is a person or persons reaching out into the world; making connections, sharing ideas and hopes and dreams or maybe just a laugh.  What has impressed me the most is the talent, the raw talent that is out there, the honesty and the hopefulness; the beauty of humanity crying out to be heard in a seemingly infinite sea of information.

Recently I received a lovely award from a lovely person; Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko. This is such a lovely award is it is called “The One Lovely Blog Award”

Angi’s blog:  A Kiss of Bliss  http://akissofbliss.wordpress.com/ is one of those gems that I stumbled upon one night.  Check it out for quality writing on interesting and positive subjects.

I would like to thank Angi for the award. I appreciate the recognition. It is nice to receive it.  It’s even better to pass it on.

Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award.

 1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

 2. Pass the award to other newly discovered blogs.

 3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

What follows are some prime examples of stumbling upon other gems.

I nominate the following blogs for the One Lovely Blog Award

Liebster blog award nominees

Last week I went for a walk and I may I have wandered a bit too far because before I knew it, I had fallen off the edge of the world and slid down a deep hole into the dark recesses of my strange imagination.  There I pondered the mysteries of the universe while taking pictures and writing bad poetry.

Imagine my surprise upon returning to find a message informing me of my nomination for the Liebster blog award.  An award given to bloggers with less than 200 followers who deserve a little recognition. I don’t receive many awards, in fact I am an award virgin and being new to all this, I am a bit overwhelmed.

I am also more than a bit  honored by receiving this award especially coming from such a bloggist as Nouvelle Fille. I am a follower of her blog Because I Said at http://nerdywords.wordpress.com and have found it  be well written and entertaining.  She is one to watch and if you haven’t checked out her blog, you should.  It is well worth your time.

(Thank you Nouvelle Fille! This is quite an honor coming from you because I think so much of you and your blog.)

According to the rules this is the part when I nominate 5 other deserving blogs:  So without further ado..here they are…(drumroll please)
