Well just picked up another award, must be the season!

Thanks to Buzzing with Ange, my new buddie from Go!SmelltheFlowers, for the award.

Be The Blog award

Mark, from MeAndMyDrum, who created the award says,

Earlier this year I was tagged with the blogging tip meme in which the tip I offered was “Be the Blog“. That phrase stuck with me because I think that really sums up what a successful blogger does. And what I mean by successful is that they make it their own, stay with it, are interactive with their readers, and just plain have fun.

Since then I’ve been thinking about creating an award of my own, but with so many out there, it’s hard to find a niche that remains untapped for recognition. So I said, “What the heck?”, and decided to shape the phrase into an award called (you guessed it): Be The Blog.

To accommodate a variety of blog themes, I have created three different “flavors” of badges: Creamy Cabernet, Midnight Oil, and Pink Smoothie.

So I pass it on to:

Paul Burman

Mr Grudge

Writing True

Paul is an author and friend, who has been interviewed here on The View From Here , and has just launched his own website


Mr Grudge has recently relaunched his blog, changing it to be about his passion: writing.


Writing true, well let him tell you himself:

For quite some time, I've agonized that, while outspoken, I color everything I say and write depending on the company or forum in which I find myself--in my community, on my campus, on a given discussion board and so forth.

Consequently, after long thought, I created this blog to write what I really think, honestly and without censureship.

so it seems a fitting award to give them.

Congratulations on your awards and thank you for spreading the happiness around, Mike. Have been following the links from this post and reflecting on the fact that every time I think I've got a handle on Blogdom you introduce me to another aspect ... and off I go again. Cheers.
