A Few More Awards

It is again a cold, dark and dreary day, with snow, snow and more snow. A promoter of melancholy and even bluer thoughts. Hard on your body, hard on your mind…

But I just remembered the blog awards, given to me a while ago by Absolute Vanilla & Attylah. Oh, what a ray of sunshine they are, warming my soul! Thank you, Vanilla, thank you so much!

They are:

The E for Excellent Blog Award.

The description of the award is:
"I love being a part of the blogging community and part of all the friendships that I've formed so I wanted to give a blog award for all of you out there that have Excellent Blogs. By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, you have to award it to 10 more people whose blogs you find Excellent Award worthy. You can give it to as many people as you want but please award at least 10. (And yes, okay, so some of you already have the award... )"

The others speak for themselves:

The You Are Totally Awesome Award

The Best Blogging Buddies Award for Global Communities

The Friendly Site Award


The Biggest Heart Award

And now for the recipients:

ABenchPress (Chris)
An Innocent A-Blog (Bernita)
Aspirations from the Darkside (Akasha)
The Clarity of Night (Jason and Aine)
Country Don’t Mean Dumb (John Eaton)
Eudaemonia (Lisa)
Gondolatok az erdöben (Szélsöfa)
Murmurs (Sarah)
Random Acts of Unkindness (Ello)
The Struggling Writer (Paul)
To Taste a Peach (Taffiny)

(It doesn’t matter if you’ve already received it. There’s no doubt that you deserve it again!)

Thank you for the award. How nice of you, and what good company for me to be included with.

It is frigid here, gray sky, and snow covering everything. I know how you feel.

Akasha Savage said...

Aaah, thanks vesper, that means a lot to me. :D xx

Ello said...

Oh sheesh! This is why I love you! Not only do you write beautiful words that usually make my heart sing, but you give me sweet awards! I'm beaming!

Aine said...

You are so sweet! Most of my favorite blogs are in your list. Jason is working so hard this week with the contest-- he deserves all the accolades. Thanks!

I must confess to never really getting the notion of all these blog awards given out freely whenever bloggers feel like it. There's so many of them and most are just given to blogging friends it makes them pretty invalid as "awards" per se. They are almost becoming the wind blown litter of the blogosphere's gutters. I still say the best reward for a blogger is to get readers and comments.

Vesper said...

You're welcome, Paul. Winter here seems to have no end...

Akasha, you're welcome, I'm glad of this. :-)

Ello, my pleasure! :-) (And, thank you!)

Aine, I can only imagine how hard it'll be for him to choose the winners... You're welcome!

DBA, oh, you are so harsh... :-) You are right, in a way, of course, but it's just a little game, and if it gives pleasure to people and makes them smile, then why not? In fact, they're not awards, just tokens of friendship...
The best reward is to get readers and comments, no doubt about it. :-)

Sarah Hina said...

Woo-hoo! Thank you, Vesper! This prize is a little ray of warmth on a crazy, cold day. :)

And I like your explanation that they are tokens of friendship, more than real awards. I think that's why I really feel like I'm connecting with people.

Thank you for making me feel that I have. :)

Taffiny said...

Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah) said...

Bloggy awards are just the thing to cheer a soul and a body up!
Big hugs and sending you sunshine and blue skies.

Lisa said...

What a lovely surprise. Thank you dear Vesper :)

Vesper said...

Sarah, you're welcome! I know what you mean, this connection with people is really unequalled... :-)

Taffiny, wow, thank you so much my dear girl-friend! :-)

Oh, Vanilla, you don't even know how much your hugs and thoughts of sunshine mean to me! Thank you!!! Right back at ya!

You're very welcome, my dear Lisa. :-)

ChristineEldin said...

Vesper, Thank you! I feel like it's Christmas!! I like the tokens of friendship. I understand what Shameless Words is saying, but I also like your point too. Which is why I would never make a good attorney! :-)

I can't wait to hear about your Cuban adventure!!!!! It sounds soo exotic and exciting!!!
I hope you all have loads of fun!

Bernita said...

You are going where it's warm?

You are sweet as sunshine. These are like a warm hand on a cold and bitter day.
