The Neno's Award

Wow! I got my first blogger award!

Thank you so much to HalfCrazy at
An Ardent Cosmic Journey
for the honors.

Thank you!

The award is:

  • a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.

  • to seek the reasons why we all love blogging.
I love blogging for so many reasons. What I love the most about blogging is the social networking it brings. I started my own blog after lurking reading more and more blogs. I then patterned my own blog after one of my favorite blogs and began writing more and more posts and commenting on other blogs. To my amazement my blog started to receive traffic and comments.

As I explore blogs created by people from all over the world, I feel like I am getting to know them a little and am becoming part of an online community of fun and interesting people. I have learned so much and made many friends online through blogging. And even if I never meet you in person, I still value you as friends. So thank you all for your support and encouragement. I really appreciate it.

I have found blogging to be a great opportunity for creative expression. I hope that I have something to say or something to share that is of interest to somebody in the world, and I love getting feedback. My blog is sometimes a personal diary of a few things going on in my life. It's a combination of documenting some of the events in my life or even little things in my life. It is also a place where I can reflect on the past, and pay tribute to different people. And of course I throw in a bunch of current events and news links with my comments and have been known to rant or just post something funny. It will be interesting for me to look back at my old blog posts after some time has passed. I sure there are other reasons I love blogging, but that should cover most of them!

The aims of this award:
  • As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
  • To seek the reasons why we all love blogging.
  • Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.
  • Don't forget to mention the person who gives you the award.
  • Answer the award's question by writing the reason why you love blogging.
  • Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like.
  • Don't forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.

I also would like to give an award to these people:

Oh, thanks for the shoutout, it's really thrilling to receive your first blogger award, huh? LOL.

Ooh, glad to know you also pattern your blogs after your favorites - I actually do too! I mean, looking back at my first post, I sounded like a complete idiot!

Thanks to your posts, I learned a lot about you, things going on around the world and other stuff! I can't forget about Madonna's limited edition book. Trust me, I didn't know about that LOL.

You sneaky devil! Trying to get me back into blogging again,eh? ;-)

You certainly deserve this award and I'm thrilled for you, kiddo, and thanks for sending it my way. I guess this means another special post (which I will get to asap--dealing with a torn medial meniscus in my knee, and it kills to sit at my computer for any length of time).

In the meantime...keep on blogging!

Thanks a million John. I feel the same way as you about blogging! It is an honor. I have been having puter problems and lousy connectivity, hope to post about this over the weekend! Keep up the great work and for visiting my lil blog.

John said...

@HalfCrazy, you are so welcome for the shoutout! I just hope I did the post correctly. I'm not as computer literate as you are! You can see how I keep things simple around here...there's a reason LOL.

Yes, it really is thrilling to receiving my first (you mean I might get more LOL) blogger award!

I'm happy to know you've learned so many interesting things here. Thank you for so much inspiration!

@Argentum Vulgaris, Mary Ellen, Dr. Monkey, Re-Re, Blonde Goddess, are so deserving and most welcome. I absolutely love your blogs and you know that no two of your blogs are alike! And the fact that you visit here and even leave comments occasionally makes me especially appreciative and for that I thank YOU! Oh and for being followers too, means so much! Thanks again.
