I recently received a message from Sunita of The Urban Gardener telling me she had awarded the Friendship Award to me. It was so sweetly presented there was no way I could refuse; her post was beautifully and lovingly written. I need to list eight bloggers who have been outstanding through their friendship to me... though I can never write this up as beautifully as Sunita did her lovely, outstanding post, "Making a difference"
I had to think about this for a long while, because I didn't want to name ones I had selected for previous awards, and don't know if it is OK to name those who have been presented the same award earlier. (Though so many names from both groups came quickly to mind for this award, such as: Kerri, Philip, et al.)
I traced the award back as far as Anne and her blog Peek-A-Boo Street. The following was written by Anne in her post: "I Received An Award!", and I blatantly copy from her post the following information about the award.
"This award focuses on the friendships that blossom here in blog land. Blogs who receive this award are; exceedingly charming' say it's authors. This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kink 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! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this award."
If you in my list do not want to continue the award, that is perfectly OK with me. Still, I wanted all of you to know how much I appreciate your friendliness. (I couldn't list only eight... I sneaked and listed nine.)
The bloggers in this list were either supportive of my early work in my blog; or frequently left encouraging comments to my earliest posts; or helped me learn my way around Blotanical when I was new there; or.... all of the above! You helped keep me going. Thank You!
