Friends Award

Okay, so last night I'm browsing through blogs I follow and I see this adorable hearts logo and wonder what it is because I'm looking for Valentine art for my blog. I've found it on "The Stair Landing" so I begin to read her post about the Friends Award and how it has been bestowed upon her by another blogger. Of course, this intrigues me to no end as I am always curious about what other people like to follow, especially if I'm following their blog. The goal of the Friends Award is to pay it forward and bestow on eight fellow bloggers. There is criteria.

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight more and include this cleverly written text in the body of your awards.

I read the list twice, trying to decide which blogs I'll visit, before I realized she's listed my blog! You know, it's such a compliment. I think when you blog, no matter how much you'd like other people to read your thoughts, you tend to be surprized when they do.

Thank you to Marilyn. Now, in the spirit of this, here are my selections for the Friends Award:

The Coffee Messiah
Life in the Second Half
Lunch with Front Studio
Maggie Reads
The Typing Makes Me Sound Busy
Pitt Rehab
La Petite Fille de la Mer

Now it's their turn to pay it forward and find eight more.

Thank you so much! I think this is a great idea, I will get started on my group of eight.

You have a really nice blog, thanks for sharing it with me.

Lover of Life said...

Thank you so much for the award. I will pass it on, as well. I love your pictures and your intelligent view of the world.

Ruth said...

Thank you very much! This is very kind. It's amazing to meet new people through this medium, isn't it!

Coffee Messiah said...

Hey, Thanks so much.

I'm really bad at these and have been given a couple others previously.

Before BON, or exactly on that same day, I had sent a note to some friends that I was giving up my blog. I've done this 2X before. Staying away from other creative endeavors.

But here I am, and upon our return, will pass all long when time allows.

So, Thanks again and it's been a pleasure to meet you too ; )

I think any recognition of one's efforts is a plus. We all need validation for our work. I hope everyone does pass it along. Seems like a great way to highlight the writing of someone you admire and sharing with your existing reader base.

That winter sunrise photo is fantastic. Hope you use it for a Christmas card this year.

Thanks California Girl! It was like getting a surprize valentine!

I'm awful at doing the award thing and I hardly ever place them on my blog b/c I'm usually too busy. I'll see if I can give this one a go!

Front Studio said...

Thanks for this! It's such a nice kind of thought, especially with blogs when you're never sure who is reading. :)
