BLOG OF THE YEAR 2013 AWARD
BLOG OF THE YEAR 2013 AWARD
DECEMBER 31, 2013 UPDATE
Dr. Rex has written:
There are so many wonderful blogs and writers out there. Some I follow and others I see through reblogs. There’s an incredible wealth of knowledge, information, facts, interesting stories, humor, celebrations, shared feelings and personal stories. We post and we share. We create bridges, we tear walls down. We connect!! We create friendships.
She expresses my thoughts and experience. In passing on nominations today, Dr. Rex came up with a great idea. I am adopting that in passing on this award to whomever has been previously nominated and needs another star.
DECEMBER 22, 2013 UPDATE
Blackbuttery7 has received its 5th star for the Blog of the Year, 2013, award. Our 5th star is presented by Dr. Rex (Horty)
It is indeed an honor to be recognized by peers. We each understand and appreciate what is required to blog, and we share our love in doing so. I am so honored and humbled to be a part of a blogging community, sharing the same interests in equality for all.
I now pass the nomination to Caleb G. of http://ushypocrisy.com/
NOVEMBER 23, 2013 UPDATE
Since accepting the nomination and passing it on to nominees, Blackbutterfly7 has received two stars for a total of four. When we accepted the nomination, I inadvertently forgot that Blackbutterfly7 had already received two stars and did not inform the nominees that the two stars were passed on to them. Thus, Blackbutterfly7 now has 3 stars to pass on to nominees.
I now pass the nomination, with 3 stars, to Caleb G. of http://ushypocrisy.com/
It is a great honor for Blackbutterfly7 to accept nomination for this award. It means so much to me, to BlushedBrown as a contributing author, and for those who work behind the scenes to make this blog possible.
In July 2012, Jim and Mindyme62 of the Yahoo Group Blackbutterfly768, encouraged me to look into opening a blog. On August 1, 2012, Blackbutterfly7 was born with the publishing of our “About” page. The popularity and success of this blog has been mainly by word-of-mouth. Therefore, we share this nomination for Blog of the Year with all of our supporters.
Now, for the instructions to accept nomination:
1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the Blog of The Year 2013 Award.
2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.
3. Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them – (please don’t alter the instructions or the badges!)
4. Come over and say hello to the originator of the Blog Of The Year 2013 Award via this link: http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/blog-awards-2-/blog-of-the-year-2013-award/
5. You can now also join the Blog Of The Year Award Facebook Page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear
6. And as a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with this award – and proudly display the award on your blog – and start collecting stars!
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. (Thanks to Horty, Blackbutterfly7 starts off with two stars.)
The parameters that I used to determine my nominees are:
- The amount of information I gain from the subjects of the blog.
- The blog administrator’s interest in supporting the Word Press community of bloggers, either through reblogging, or by way of a blogroll or both.
- The blog administrator’s participation in comments and moderation of comments.
- That the blog is active having at least one article posted this month.
- Appearance. The blog is easy to navigate and the blogger has taken time to tell about themselves and/or the purpose of the blog by having an “About” section.
As nominees of this award, please post a comment here when you accept the nomination.
The Blogs I nominate are:
Caleb G.’s blog has a variety of informative articles. It is easy to navigate, and he enjoys blogging, sometimes posting as much as 11 different articles in one month. I can spend hours in the “Media” section. In pertinent part, he describes his blog as:
”U.S. Hypocrisy“ or “United States Hypocrisy” is basically a collection of my views and opinions on different topics involving current and historical events. The themes explored deal with racism, capitalism, imperialism, American police brutality & violence, religion, (in)tolerance, capital punishment, prison and incarceration.
Caleb G. supports the Word Press community by reblogging.
In his About, Glenn tells his readers that is of Irish, German, Dutch, English & Austrian diaspora. He enjoys the topics of sociology, anthropology, psychology, history and politics. Glenn supports the Word Press community by providing Featured Communities and a blogroll. Mixedamericanlife is easy to navigate. His homepage provides snippets of recent posts making them easy to find.
What can I say about Shaun? A short paragraph doesn’t do him justice, but I have to restrain myself. Shaun reaches out to others, and we reach back. He’s from the country of my maternal grandparents’ birth; i.e. Scotland. Shaun is genuine. He actively contributes in comments, and he blogs on a variety of subjects. He supports the Word Press Community by following other blogs, and contributing to comments.
It is What it Is; Dr. Rex, (Horty), is a magnificent, busy blogger. I don’t know how she does it. She begins the day with a good morning post, and ends her blogging day with an end of the day post. In between, Horty posts on a variety of subjects and always finds time to discuss with those commenting. She keeps up with the news, the news within the news, and the news that’s waiting to become news. Her blog is VIBRANT. Horty supports the Word Press Community by displaying blogs that she follows, and she always finds time to visit other blogs and leave her calling card by way of leaving a like and/or a comment. When I grow up, I want to be like Horty.
Now, I’m on my way to deliver the news to the nominees.
