Awards for All

I am seldom the recipient of blogging honors and I am deeply gratified when I am. Recently a fellow blogger and commenter here, Dawn of She is Too Fond of Books, generously bestowed honors on all of her readers which I thought was a very cool thing to do.

you-dont-sayThis is given to people who leave “super comments.” I try to comment when I drop by a blog but I am not as prolific of late as I can be.

proximidadeThe Proximidade Award declares “This blog invests and believes in the Proximity – nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!”

One Lovely Blog award is just what it claims to

Because I love Dawn’s idea of awarding to all who read (even if you have never been here before today), I am asking my gentle readers to take these awards and award them generously to others. Blogging awards shouldn’t be about popularity. They should be about promoting community.

  1. That is a very nice sentiment – and good kick in the pants too. I visit many blogs but don’t comment as much as I should either, though I feel all warm and fuzzy when I do get a comment on mine once in a while : )

  2. First, thank you.
    Second, I love when people forgo the rule of picking people to give it to. It’s too hard. Blogging shouldn’t be stressful

  3. What a wonderful sentiment and way to “pass on” recognition of what lies at the heart of blogging for so many of us. Thank you.
