I’m thrilled, honoured, touched, grateful - you name it - I’m “it.”
My Utopia has bestowed upon me (ya, little ole me!) the following awards.
The Thoughtful Blogger Award
“For those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping others bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.”
(The helping others with their site bit? Not so much. I’d improve my own site if I knew how.)
The Creative Blogger Award
“For those who bring unique and creative elements to their blogs. For those who incorporate art, music, creative writing, photo's, and other beautiful visual effects into their website. For those who put a unique spin on things and come up with new ideas. This award is for the artsy, the funky, the inventor, and even the rebel. This award is for those creative individuals who stand out from the crowd.”
(This one is a real stretch but I still love her for giving it to me. It’s something to aspire to. Maybe someday I’ll be ”artsy,” “funky” and a “rebel.” Stranger things have happened.)
I’m now supposed to pass these awards on to five other people. I did the math. I’d have to come up with ten people. You may know from previous posts that I’m not good at this. It’s so bloody hard to choose.
But I can tell you who I’m NOT giving them to:
THE THREE D’s – Dan, Diesel and Dorky Dad. Not because they don’t deserve them but because they are the recipients of so many damn awards. Don’t want their heads to burst.
I’m going to pass each of these awards on to just one person.
(I just broke the rules – I am on my way to becoming a rebel!)
The Thoughtful Blogger Award description applies to so many bloggers. They know who they are. Their kindness and support have been tremendous.
To choose just one, I did my usual trick – put the names of these bloggers in a hat and had my sister do the honours.
The Thoughtful Blogger Award goes to Trish of The Coffee House!
Trish was one of my very first blog friends. This is a friendship I treasure.
As for The Creative Blogger Award – no names in a hat for this one.
The first person who came to mind was All Mod Cons of Phoque Me!
Congrats, buddy - your creativity has paid off. You can now add this little do-hickey to your site. And if I have trouble adding them to my sidebar, I’m going to bug you for help ‘cause you’re so darned creative. (It’s official.)
And now I must publish this post which involves putting in all these links. (God, I hope I don’t get any of them wrong.)
The burden of honour and fame is tremendous.
But I love it! My thanks to My Utopia.
