This week my Guru, The Seeker has once again bestowed me with a little award. Thankyou my lady.
Yippee, not only do I feel honored, but I get a chance to tell you about 7 other blogs who deserve a little lovin' and by turn give them the chance to send out their love.
You see, despite what we may feel about world finance, established religions, the loss of community and the isolation of marginalised minorities; the blog world overcomes all that.
Instead we celebrate connectedness by accepting our awards and sending you to our nominees, where you may discover your commonality with someone you would never normally meet.
Because that is the great thing about bloggin'.
At any time of the day or night there is someone out there, putting their thoughts on the keyboard, finding a pretty picture to share with us, finding a funny catalogue to give us a giggle; telling us we are beautiful and valuable and worth knowing.
It is like a big virtual beauty salon where we can sit under the dyers and cackle our way through each others anecdotes while flicking through a world smorgasbord of virtual magazines. Did you see this? OH MY GOD, etc.
And the Beauty salon actually backs on to a barber's shop with a big shared banquette; so we can lean over and exchange virtual points of view with the lads waiting for a short back and sides. (Mattie, you can sit with us on the pretty side) Nick, I think you might be best over the otherside with the N0. 2 clippers and a copy of Hotpress.
My blog love this time goes out to the brave little bloggers who give me perspective on my own worries and always rise to the occasion to support me when asked. And asked, And Asked.
Please take it seriously (NICK!) and use it to pass on the goodness, but also to inform the rest of us of what other good is out there, within the six degrees of connectedness.
First the rules:
1. The nominated is allowed to put the picture on their blogs. (√)
2. Link to the person who awarded you. (√)
3. Nominate seven other people and link to them.
4. Leave a message on those people's blog to make them aware that they're nominated.
My Super Seven:
Cathal's Mummy from Cathal's Big Adventure
Sesame from Songs and Stories a fellow autie mum.
Cathal's NAN (and my adopted nan) from A journey into Grandmotherhood
Nick of Our Jacob another Downsie
Jazzygal, the all singing, all dancing Autie Mum.
And because this is my award and I can give it out whenever I am inspired by beauty....
I am dually awarding both the above "I Heart" and my own "You are a beautiful blogger" to the final two.
Skye: of Skylark and Son.
Skye: of Skylark and Son.
The first blog I read every morning and the last I read at night. Everyday I get a dose of Bondi sunshine and goodness mixed with excellent thrifted fashion and modern maternal wisdom. And she looks Hawt in just about everything. Oh, and I love her.
And my new favourite Make Do And Mend.
Not only a good philosphy for a recovering shop-a-holic, but a beautiful blog in itself for inspirational photography and personal style. A fellow thrifter who needs must as she recently became studentfied and is now neccessarily making do. She also gets the award, because she "gets it". Put it up on your blog and look at it everyday Ms Mk'Do.
For the full blurb please link back to the original creation. And yes, I am totally enjoying seeing this passed around the blogosphere!
The rules for this as created by the inaugural winner The Seeker:
1. The nominated person can put the picture on their blog.
2. Share the love and link back to both the person who awarded you and back to the person who founded the award, that would be me.
3. Give it to two bloggers and link to them. Tell us in detail why they are beautiful.
4. Leave a message on those people's blogs to make them aware that they're nominated.
5. You are free to pass it on again, when you are "inspired" by a beautiful post or a beautiful blog.
Have a lovely week folks.
