Weeks ago, Premium T. bestowed upon me a Premio Dardos award. If I am slow to respond, I am none-the-less honored and grateful. And with the Oscars airing tonight, it seems like a perfect day for awards.
From Premium T.'s post:
The Premier Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.
1. Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the
name of the person that has granted the award and a link
to his/her blog.
2. Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy
of this acknowledgement, remembering to contact each
of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.
Here are the five blogs that I want to recognize:
Blue Positive: Always well-thought and well-written, with good ideas and good reading recommendations
First Drafts: Leonardo Likes Gulls: The tagline "Poetry and life in a small town—thoughts before revision" says it all. Plus, the gratitude journal and Tuesday confessions. (I admire anyone who can commit to posting regularly on one day of the week and come through—and First Drafts does.)
Office OFFline: Extreme wit with extreme brevity.
The Nut Bar: This blog is new to me—but so delicious, with pictures and writing to whet the palate.
Cuoche dell'altro mondo: I admit that I can't vouch for the language here—except that it's Italian, and the pictures always inspire me. Now, I just need to figure out how to tell them that I'm giving them this award.
