Blogger Friends Award

awardblogI admit it, I have been remiss in my duties as a responsible blogger. In my defence I do have an explanation – summer. But it’s pouring rain outside right now, the bike is all polished and ready to go when the sun comes out, the garden is planted, and bass season doesn’t open here for another week yet. So I’m all out of good excuses.
A week or so ago I was honoured to be awarded a Blogger Friends award by not one but two fellow bloggers – Baron and Danny. Thanks guys, it’s appreciated.
Now the deal here is that the recipient of this award is expected to find 8 other “friendly bloggers” to whom they pass on the award. That’s an omission I will now correct by sharing my good fortune with others.
But first of all, the rules (there’s always rules).
“Each recipient of the award is expected to pass it on to 8 other bloggers (including the “rules”) selected according to the following criteria:
1. These blogs are exceedingly charming.
2. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
3. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
Following the rules, I culled my list of favourite blogs down to 8. And if I have re-awarded someone, too bad. It just means more than one fellow blogger really likes your work and it’s more free promotion. (Actually I did try to not re-award, but if I missed one or two – sorry.)
So here’s my list. These folks all have great blogs. If you haven’t visited them before, pop in for a look and let them know you stopped by.

  3. Ms M - You are very welcome. Thank you for some great posts in the past and many more to come I'm sure. And for the "Life is Short, Play Naked" cartoon on your home page, which I have already stolen in anticipation of a suitable occasion to use it. ;)

  4. First off, Congrats on getting your award!, and second...Thank you very much for thinking of me and mentioning my blog in your award.

    I hate to be a party pooper, because these awards are very nice, but at the same time are like chain mail, and chain e-mail. If we all list 8, who will be left. everyone would eventually get the award.

    Again, I do thank you for mentioning my blog, but I will not participate in spreading the award. I hope you understand.

    There I said it. Please don't think I'm a jerk for doing so. I wonder how many other people have thought it, and just spread it because it seemed like the P.C. thing to do.

  5. Mr. Motorcycle, no worries. I fully understand and that's cool. In fact I seriously considered breaking the chain myself, but then I thought this was a good way for me to publicly say thanks to some of my favourite bloggers.
    Just keep blogging!
