Awards II

Many thanks to Charles of graypoet for the Beautiful Blogger Award received mid-2012, this was kind of  Charles, I was honoured and grateful for his thoughtfulness.
Time does not permit me to continue to accept awards, but I’m happy to leave these pages for those of you who find them of interest – most of the links remain ‘live’ but inevitably there will be those no longer available.

Evidently, the idea behind the Beautiful Blogger Award is to recognise some of the bloggers we read for their hard work and inspiration. The rules for this award go like this: 

  1. Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post (check!)
  2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog (done!)
  3. Tell 7 things about yourself (er … nope, done it for other awards, see below)
  4. Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know (see below).

My nominated ‘seven other bloggers’ are:

Poetic Inspirations by Mary Anne Pale

Written Words Never Die by Eric Alagan

Joe at Joe2poetry

Thomas Halvë of Writing with Water

Garry of A Distant Threat Of Moonlight

Stephen and Robert of Two Gallants (this counts as two!)

With my thanks for your constancy and kind comments.

Ooh, look, I’ve been given a special award!
I’m purring, I’m so pleased, this special award is from the Silver Cat.

Kreativ Blogger Award

The talented writer and blogger David Eric Cummins over at Higher Hell to nominate me for the Kreativ Blogger Award – just for a change I’m going to play the game according to the rules (!)  So, here goes:

Evidently, part of the deal or ‘one of the conditions of the award’ is to share six random facts about myself then nominate 2 or 3 bloggers (or, as David nominated 10 then I’ll do the same) to carry along the award baton if they so wish.  So, here goes, six random facts:

  1. I returned to writing at a creative writing class in the 80’s but ‘work and life’ meant I didn’t continue until the second decade of the 2000’s.
  2. I’m an inveterate researcher so had to find out where the Kreativ Blogger Award began – the originator was a Norwegian blogger called Hulda according to Kreativ Blogger SimonFoodFavourites and many others.
  3. I once fell down a pothole and tore every ligament in my left ankle – indescribably painful – almost as painful as all those clever folk who kept assuring me ‘you’d have been better to break it.’ Grrrrr.
  4. I wanted to live in Oregon when I was growing up – too many John Wayne movies, I guess.
  5. My daughter calls me ‘arty farty’ (heh-heh)
  6. I met Bernard Bresslaw at a Round Table fete in Malvern donks ago, he was very, very tall with enormous feet.

And finally, my nominations for the Kreativ Blogger Award are:

Cheetahs in My Shoes

Found in France

Thypolar’s Life Uncensored

Lightning Droplets

Letters from The Wasteland

Postcard Fiction



Gjscobie’s Blog

Andy Szpuk

Many of the above superb bloggers have received such awards before, I’m sending them on, and letting the bloggers know of this award, as a token of my appreciation of their work.  It is entirely up to the recipient as to whether they wish to pass the award on, no pressure …
