When my dearest friend and most appreciative reader Mr Jueseppi B. nominated me for The Reader Appreciation Award, I instantly jumped to Cloud Nine and as is evident from my activity levels on WordPress, I decided to stay there for a quite some time. :P
While THAT is not a plausible excuse for my absence, it certainly is the truth. My gratitude to Jueseppi is not exclusive to this award. He has been an inspiration and a guide when it comes to blogging. For that and so much more, I can never thank him enough.
He writes at the amazing blog “TheObamaCrat.Com“. All his posts are very informative and well scripted. I doubt another person could speak so powerfully for and about American Politics. His blog is right at the top of my recommended blogs list. Do check it out.
Now, as is with every blog award, there are some rules I must follow.
The rules are:
1. List six nominations
2. Link the Award Image back to the one who presented it to you.
This is the first time I am taking up the tough task of Nomination six wonderful people who in my opinion deserve this award. Though I believe that I am no authority on poetry or prose or anything anybody writes. I mean,who am I to judge a work of art, right? But I do understand the thought behind awards. It is not to judge but to appreciate and encourage fellow bloggers to (as my friend puts it) “keep the good stuff coming”.
Here goes my list of Six truly deserving nominees for this award:
“I write poetry and am in the middle of writing a fantasy novel. I’m English (with a bit of Welsh), live in Essex on the East coast of England”
“History, War, Literature, Me”
“I am a compulsive writer. Also interested in random arts and crafts. Being a poet, a writer, a master of narration, a wizard of words is one of the best endowments a person can be bestowed with.
This blog is a chronicle of my adventures, both current and past along with socio-cultural commentary and stories on personal activities as well as those that in some way left their impression on me. ”
“Liz is an English Literature undergraduate at The University of Winchester in Hampshire, England. She is an avid fan of poetry, literature and video games and spends her time between the two and working a part time job at The-Supermarket-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named.
Lizardology is my little corner on the internet where I post the poetry I have written at random intervals. I also occasionally write fiction and prose – depending on where the mood takes me, as well as posting the odd article or more traditional ‘blog’ post.”
“This, for me, is where I can simply vent my thoughts and from time to time publish my endeavors in poetry and philosophy.
Everything is written in memory of the four persons I admire the most: Don Quijote de La Mancha, Giacomo Girolamo Casanova de Seingalt, Plato and Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac.”
” Atheism, Christianity and a few things in between!
My life has been as interesting, more or less,as your own and I hope to relate to you on matters both personal and mundane regarding what my life has taught and is teaching me. My specific story is one of deep faith in my youth and the complete lack thereof in these later days. It is my hope to explain how and why my journey has moved me to where I am today and to discuss through the medium of current events (as well as past events) who I am and what I believe.”
Congratulations, you all. Trust me, you deserve every ounce of appreciation that I send along with this award. May your pen continue to speak louder than any sword ever did. “KEEP THE GOOD STUFF COMING” :D
To all my lovely friends reading this, do take a second to visit the afore-nominated blogs. I am sure your presence would make a sea of difference to them as it does to me.
Thanks to you for being the great “blog-family” that you are.
Keep Spreading the love <3
