In the past months, I have received awards from bloggers of our community. I have mentioned that I have double feelings about it though. On the one hand I am humbled by the nomination for the kindness and generosity I receive. On the other hand, I don’t feel good to make a post to self promote me.
As done before, I go for breaking the rules.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to those who nominated me but instead of talking about me, I will talk about them.
First of all, thanks to meine Liebe sister-blogger Becky from Restart Urgently Needed, She has been awarded The Liebster Award, and extended the nomination to me as well. I have received this award in the past, and I was honored to get this again, and more importantly, from Becky. I call her my little sister and if she tells me through this award that I am most precious, what else can I wish for from a beloved sister?
If you still don’t know her, hurry up, and check her blog. She has an awe-inspiring blog, recounting her experience as a war survivor, and giving us daily lessons of humanity, resilience, determination, compassion and generosity.
But the icing on the cake is this: She has been recently freshly pressed and….She will publish a book very soon!
Let us all support her by following her blog and reading her book. In this complex and convoluted world we live in, it is necessary to spread stories like hers throughout the blogosphere. We can make it viral and inspire everyone who is touched by it.
Her words are worth reading for they remind us of our humanity, and call us to pay attention to what is happening around us, and to take action, no matter how big or small, to stop unfairness, violence, inequality and exploration in our small universes. Every action counts. Like a drop of water in the ocean.
Now it is time to thank my blogger friend Julia from My Red Page for awarding me the Premio Dardos and congratulate her for receiving the award.
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.
Well, I was truly overwhelmed by this award because when I put my blog into perspective with the meaning of the award, it felt like an undeserved award. Julia nominated some bloggers though, because she thinks that our blogs speak volumes about our passion for writing. Ok, granted, that I can accept.
How about Julia? Who is Julia? We met recently during the writing101 course. She is a new blogger who I very much appreciate and invite you to support. She is the girl who painted the town red, as she loved red!
But wait, there are other colors too. And I assure you, you will find a rainbow at her blog. When reading her posts, from fashion to cooking, and up to personal stories, you will feel her heartwarming and genuine presence. Julia is an incorrigible lover of love and that is good, because she puts her heart in everything she does. This is a rare (although innate human capacity) quality and people like that need to be praised, cloned, multiplied and sent to live everywhere in this world.
Wasn’t this post a perfect combination of two most marvelous women?
Now back to the awards….I should nominate other people too. But I warned you I would break the rules though…
I nominate the Liebster Award and the Premio Dardos to you, my followers! I have deserved such nominations, thanks to your relentless support and encouragement, which inspire me every day to learn more and become a better blogger. Thank you!
