This award nomination is a great delight to receive as it comes from one of my favorite bloggers Lydia at A Idiot’s Guide To Parenting. It is a hilarious blog written by someone who is in no way an idiot and is in fact my favorite funny mummy. Lydia has a sharp and entertaining sense of humor which must be pushed to the limit some days with the antics of her very clever kids. I love the way she shares her experiences with a forthright humor and attitude and none of the judgement found in so many parents nowadays, you all know the one’s I mean the über Mum and Dad’s.
I was nominated for these others by Alienora Taylor from Alien Auras Blog and Teela Hart at Surviving Domestic Violence. Both of these women I consider to be friends as well as fellow travelers on the blogging road. Alienora has such a gift with words and her saucy style can give a boost to your day. She is also incredibly brave in the way she tackles the emotional ups and downs that she has traversed in her life’s journey.
Not only that she is an inspiration to those who walk not only to the beat of a different drum but like myself actually require a full-blown orchestra at times to traverse our path. The Premio Dardo is an honor for bloggers who transmit core human values through their post, pictures and other work. Indeed, this is a very special award because it recognizes personal, ethical, cultural and literary values transmitted through writing and I am greatly honored that she thought of me.
As for Teela, what is there to say. This sassy southern lady with wit and courage confronts her own personal demons on a daily basis to spread the word about the terrible pain of those who are confronted with Domestic Violence and is a voice raised to call awareness to the cause of stamping it out. She has my respect for that alone but her sense of humor and boundless spirit makes her my friend and one of which I am very proud of.
She has been one of my most loyal readers even when there have been times that I have had trouble keeping up with reading the work of those whose blogs I follow and for that I am deeply grateful. To be recognized as part of the WordPress family is a wonderful thing because in a way that is what we are building here through the connections and ideas, links that will close the gaps between people from all over the world and make us more than a collection of strangers with something to say.
I am nominating the following blogs for these awards and hope that they will be as happy to receive them as I was and will want to pass them on to others who will feel the same.
I would just like to finish this post with a very large
