While I was working in an environment cold enough to freeze sperm in it's home surroundings or home lying in front of the biggest fan we own three very cool people separately nominated me for the 'Kick Ass Blogger Award' shown here. My fine artiste friend Randal whose poesy and acuity with sardonic visual images and comments are a constant delight sent the first one. The next surprise arrived soon after when the witty and wise fast talking Okjimm left me a message that he'd nominated phantsy too. Then, just yesterday (or was it the day before?) another fine visual artist Steve Emery left a comment on the last story I posted to tell me he'd given the award to Adventures, Ink. I'm pretty overwhelmed and very glad you like my stuff.. what little there is most days since I know I'm not prolific by any stretch.
Anyhow, now I will post the rules and my choices. Please forgive my delay.
Do you know any bloggers that kick ass?
Maybe they’ve got incredible, original content. Or they’re overflowing with creativity. Is it someone that helps you become a better blogger? Or a bloggy friend you know you can count on? Or maybe it’s someone who simply inspires you to be a better person… or someone else who sends you to the floor, laughing your ass off.
Whatever the reason may be, I’m sure you know at least a couple of bloggers that kick ass. Well… why not tell ‘em so?
The rules to this are as follows:1) Choose five other bloggers that you feel are "Kick Ass Bloggers"2) Let them know that they have received an award.3) Link back to both the person who awarded you and also to http://www.mammadawg.com/4) Visit the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment.
First - Zee at Sunburst Gem. He's a wonderful artist and sculptor who's also a stranger in a strange land in the United States of the latter days. He's a passionate proponent of fairness and humanitarianism and desrves more awards than the one I can give.
Second - Gary at Withinsight. Gary is Canadian and lives in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in BC which I think is a pretty essential condition for someone who's been an executive member of Amnesty International for a long time. He's kind, charming, unflappable (at least in a public forum) and has wonderful pictures.
Third - Ingrid of Blogger Round Table - a blog devoted to understanding the current world situation from the uniquely European viewpoint of someone who now lives in Austin. She's very wise and has a great heart.
Fourth - Lindsay of Lindsay's Lobes, an Australian friend who takes a lot of time to investigate and explain his perspectives regarding the economics, culture and political system of the United States. His thoughts and hope for all of us are inspiring.
Fifth - Gfid , also known as Granny Fiddler, North of Sanity. It's true too. Gfid lives so far north she's hardly been around this summer because when you live that close to muskeg it's best to get all the sun you can when it's available. She plays violin, teaches and tells wonderful stories.
I hope you'll visit them all and maybe we'll see each other there too.
