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.
This 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.
The 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 be.
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.

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 : )
Thanks for commenting then and take an award back to your blog for your readers.
Congratulations! You deserve these awards.
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
I think too I should be like Darc and create an award to give people too.
Cool idea. I bow down humbly and will figure out my own
twistedway to pay it forward!
I look forward to seeing your take on this.
Meh, I just read a blog and occasionally I show up and write one, but thanks and thanks for reading.
That’s a nice thought. Maybe I’ll make my OWN blog awards and give them out too. 🙂
If you design it, they will come. Be great for your technorati rating.
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.
I greatly appreciate all who come and read and I am even more thankful for those of you who comment regularly.
