Update on the “Blog of the Year” 2013 Award …….


This week, so far, has been exquisitely wonderful in my blogging world!

Thanks to those awesome bloggers who have considered my writings, postings, ramblings and musings good enough, first of all to read and decide to follow. And secondly, worthy of being nominated for “Blog of the Year” award …. not once but five times at this moment.


I received this award for the first time on November 18, 2013. Like any other nomination and award received, it humbles me. It’s rewarding to know, on a personal level, that what I write is read by others and considered good enough for a nomination of such prestige. My main goal has been to share the knowledge I may have and to compile information that appears in different media outlets, internet sources, blogs I follow

Today, November 20, 2013, http://hopeandloveradio.com has nominated me for another star.

Nominated by Stephanie from …. http://hopeandloveradio.com

I would like to include her words here:

“Just like other media, music can inspire and motivate people through its lyrics and through the music itself.  Sometimes that is all people need to keep them going: Giving them hope, faith and love to carry them through whatever is going on in their daily lives. Its my purpose in life to do just that: inspire and/or motivate people through music. Knowing that so far after only 6 months that its working makes me feel fulfilled and makes me more motivated to continue working on this.”

Thank you Stephanie for your nomination.

I am honored by the nomination and gladly and very respectfully accept.

Now to follow the established  instructions.

The instructions for this award are simple:

 This is a VERY prestigious Award! There are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ’1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star! There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

The parameters that I use to determine my nominees continue to be the same:

  1. The amount of knowledge that I have received by following your blog
  2. The varied topics that are selected and written about
  3. The obvious amount of reading, research and preparation that goes into every post that I read on your blog
  4. The authenticity that I “perceive” as I read your material
  5. The interactions that we’ve had in the comments section
  6. They say that copying is the best form of flattery …. I have copied some ideas from your blogs to use in mine
  7. I don’t read newspapers, I’ve really never have. The ink makes my hands dirty …. I don’t have a need to read them at all now because I my source of news, updates, recipes, art and entertainment and more ….. by following your posts
  8. I can truthfully say that I’ve become a better informed, educated and well-rounded individual because of what I’ve learned from following your blog.

As nominees of this award, please link your post when you accept the nomination.
