My friend Betmo of Life's Journey has graciously presented me with the Arte e Pico Award. The award is given to recipients whose blogs exhibit creativity, design, interesting material and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language. I am, of course, honored, as Betmo is someone I'm truly happy to know and learn from in the blogosphere.
1) Pick five (5) blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award which is here Arte y Pico
The five bloggers I'd like to present this award to are:
Bobbie of Almost There for her photographic talent and her ability to build bridges between a nostalgic past and an ever-changing present, with an uncertain future. I look to her blog daily for interesting writing, beauty, hope and honesty.
Sherry at After The Bridge. I admire Sherry for her talents as a poet, as well as her delicious posting choices of poems by other poets. I love seeing snippets of her life, especially her beautiful granddaughter and her sweet puppy Max. There is always something at her blog that makes me smile or think or celebrate. I can't go a day without checking what Sherry has posted.
Minnesotablue at Random Thoughts.This lady's writing is what gets me over to her blog so frequently. I don't know what it is about it but every time I read a post, I take away some savory piece of wisdom. I often go back to her posts to re-read them, just in case I missed something. I admire Minne greatly for thinking outside the political box and doing so freely and without hesitation.
Singingbear at Tiz Yer Tiz: Bear is in what sounds like a beautiful place in England somewhere. Another creative blogger with amazing poetic talents, which I feel very lucky to be able to read regularly. Bear's creative posts span music, art, poetry and reflection. Another blog I can't go without checking daily.
Dianne of Forks Off The Moment: I love her blog and I read it frequently. There are so many comments for every post that sometimes, I feel like I'm merely echoing what everyone else has already said. Dianne is a creative photographer, she is political and is not afraid to express it, she is a talented, creative, funny writer. I love her comments on my blog. I just can't thank her enough for what she brings to us, her readers.
It's fun bestowing accolades on people I admire! That was fun. Thanks again, Betmo, I really enjoyed this. Oh, and a word to the lovely bloggers I just gave the award to: I won't be offended if you are too busy or otherwise not into this type of thing, and you're not able to follow through. Really.
