Sandee at Comedy Plus nominated me for the Arte y Pico Award created at the Arte y Pico blog. Then, she blew me away with what she said in my honor, “Ann is one of the most original bloggers out there. Her posts are always a great read. I so look forward to her Tuesday question each week. She also is a very dear friend."
And I think of you as my dear friend as well, Sandee. I also think you are funny, kind, compassionate, intuitive...just an all round talent. You strike me as an independent spirit with a reckless sense of adventure- someone who cares about people- a leader- who will catch someone with their hand in a cookie jar, and smile, but not utter a word.
Mel from Monday Morning Power awarded Sandee with the Arte y Pico and said that "her stories are priceless" and I have to agree, he also said, "She is truly one of the funniest people in the blogosphere."
My hats off to you Sandee, and thank you for this honor~
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
I agree with Sandee who inquired in her post "just five?" because there are so many old and new excellent bloggers I would love to give this award too and who deserve it. However, I think the creators want just five; therefore, here are my five nominations:
Dawn from Twisted Sister has thought provoking and funny posts that keep readers returning day after day, including myself. Twisted Sister is hands down one of the best blogs on the internet. Dawn treats her readers to an excellent atmosphere, blog design, and a natural talent for storytelling. ~A must visit ~
Speedy at Speedcat Hollydale Page : Speedy’s crazy antics and creative imagination entertain his reader’s one post after another. I lose time on Speedy’s blog. I’m so busy laughing, reading, or learning, that before I know it twenty minutes have slipped by …and I realize I’ve read every post on the page. Therefore, Speedy knew what he was doing when he named his blog Speedcat Hollydale Page, because before you know it you will read the entire landing page!
Budweiser at WTIT Radio Blog is a hilarious mischief-maker, who is constantly coming up with new ideas. He spend years as a radio DJ and morning host which I bet he also did well due to his personable quick wit and energy. Although, my favorite feature is his Stealing meme techniques and dating profiles. And he says he doesn’t write many but when he writes a personal story about life its funny. One thing you can count on from Bud’s blog is there’s always something new going on and it’s always going to be funny. Congrats Budweiser~
Mimi at Mimi Writes also known as the queen of meme’s and author the BlogBlast for Peace, which is now on its fourth launch. It began in 2006 with a post from Mimi Writes and has since traveled from blog to blog around the world or at least in the countries with internet access.
Mimi’s writes that the peace Globe Project has “reached 35 countries and 46 states.” I just think that is truly a remarkable accomplishment and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to take part in the project. For more information on The BlogBlast for Peace just visit Mimi blogs or clink the link in my sidebar.
Congratulations Mimi although I know you’ve probably already received this award, it wasn't from me, so now you have two. Thanks for all you do~
And my last nomination is my good friend Paula at Six 4 Paula who is one blogger with an eye for web design. I think Six 4 Paula's blog is thought provoking and funny with an upbeat atmosphere and warm tone. Congratulations Paula you deserve it~
Any blog not nominated for this award, don't worry you just may be a winner of the You Cheer Me Up Award, in addition to a part of the You Cheer Me Up Award blogroll. Yep, that’s what I said…another blogroll.
Have a great day everyone and congratulations to all the award recipients~
