Premio Dardos Award & Proximade Award

This (sometimes) humble blog has been given TWO blog awards!

The first is the Premio Dardos Award, from WordVessel by Cathy Bryant

What is the Premio Dardos Award? Premio Dardos means “prize darts” in Spanish. It is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.

Here are some rules to be followed if you choose to participate in passing this blog award on to others:

• First, accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and link to her blog.

• Second pass the award to another 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.

Here are my choices (in no particular order), which I picked on the above qualifications and from the blogs I follow:

Amy Deardon

LK Hunsaker

Karla Kassebaum

Jessica Thomas

Misty Marquardt

Brandon Barr

Billy Coffey

Becky Levine

Unfortunately, since I’m relatively new to this blogging scene, I can only come up with eight.

However, if you can think of someone – or more – that deserves this award, please add it as a comment, and I’ll update my list. Thanks!

My thanks to Cathy again for giving my blog the Proximidade Award:

"This blog invests and believes in the Proximity – nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind 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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Again, since I’m new around here, please see the list above.

My thanks to Cathy for the awards, and to the above bloggers for teaching me about themselves, the craft of writing, and the importance of keeping faith in Christ. They deserve the awards, so if you haven’t visited them yet, please do!
