My First Blog Award!

April 1, 2009

One of my favorite blogs, Linda Smith Originals, presented me with my very first blogging award! I am extremely touched and very flattered *blushes* that Linda felt I deserved a 'Proximity Award'. I think it’s awesome to give fellow blogger's a thumbs up from time-to-time and it’s especially nice when it comes from someone I respect and am honored to call friend.

The award has a special meaning behind it:

“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!”

The rule of the award is that I now pass it on to 8 people who demonstrate this spirit. It is extremely hard to pick only eight, so here is my list of some incredibly gifted and interesting people. Please be sure to visit their blogs and appreciate their wonderful work. Thank you!
