Sharing the Love

Filed under: blogging — by heatherdc @ 10:30 pm

Apparently it’s the equivalent of February as far as blogging award seasons go right now. (ya know, because in February there are like 100 award shows. That’s in February, right? If not, just go with it.)

“Blog Awards” have been gettin busy lately. So I am here to share the love! But first I’ll go ahead and ‘toot my own horn’. Just for a little bit….

The other day I got a friendly notice from my WordPress buddies saying I had a new “Incoming Link” from a lovely lady over here. She gave me my very FIRST Blogger award!! I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty excited about this. And here it is, the Arte y Pico award….

According to these “rules” (that go along with the blog award thing), I do this:

  1. Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material, and overall contribution to the blogger community, regardless of the language.
  2. Post the name of the author and a link to his or her blog by so everyone can view it.
  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.
  4. The award-winner and the presenter should post the link of the “Arte y pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
  5. Please post these rules.

And the “5 Blogs” that I choose to pass this on (because I read them and I like them soooo, maybe you will too!) are….

*Tojours Complexe: because she has amazing style, and writes about it, and provides pictures, AND has really good taste in boots. And cause she’s my blogging buddy, and that’s a fun thing to have.
*Tortious:because I absolutely Love her clever writing style. Never boring, never uneventful.
*Sassy Molassy:because she inspires me to run, and be honest, and she takes cool pictures! And she gave me my second award (we’ll get to that) and that was exciting!
*I’ll think about that tomorrow:because she got me started with this whole blogging thing. She might be missing as of late, but with good excuse….i.e. traveling all over the continental US in a Weinermobile. Ooh, now I got your attention didn’t I? Yah. Check it out.
*Mike’s Got Nothin’:because he posts the cutest pictures everrr of his little kiddies, and he’s making a really brave, and successful, effort at something he calls “40 by 40”.

So, like I said, miss Sassy gave me the second award. It looks a little somethin’ like this….

It’s even in spanish. Kind of. If I remember correctly, “premio” means prize. Yup.
Rules again. Real quick:
1. Post the logo on el blogo.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Nominate at least five other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Soooo, once again, because I read them and am thoroughly entertained by them regularly. And that makes a good blog. Enjoy! In no particular order, the “winners” are…..
*Go Lightly *Playful Professional *Starting Over at 24 *Angilio *Dooce

Again, many many thanks to Sass and PP !! And wow, that is a lot of link-inserting goin on up there. So go check them out!

–>Note to the “winners”: I realize this ‘blog award’ stuff goes around a lot. And seriously, I won’t add a link for quite some time after this. Gah. So if you don’t feel like ‘passing the torch’, that’s juuuust fine. As long as you keep writing so I can keep being entertained. Deal? 😉

::Afterthought::I’m not sure if it’s in the “rules” that you can’t pass an award to somebody who already gave you one? If so, that’s too bad. My site, my rules.
::Also, I have no idea when the “real” Blog awards are. Anybody?? That’d probably be pretty interesting too.



  1. Awww. Thank you so much! You’re so sweet . . . this really made my day! It’s always so nice just to feel like there is someone out there who hears your voice, however small some days.

    And btw, regarding the thrift store couches, I’ma have to go with, umm, no.

    That being said, I definitely owned one in college. Thank you, Febreze!
