One Lovely Blog Award — Thank You!

The One Lovely Blog Award comes to me from Aruna at Ripples N Reflections.  Aruna is a doctor working in the Indian Army as a Colonel.  She writes about her life in general, including: memoirs; travel; happiness; family; and, relationships.  Her blog is insightful and thought-provoking, and I always enjoy reading.  Thank you once again, Aruna!

This award recognizes bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with viewers and followers.

The rules are:
  1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  2. Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post.
  3. Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 10 -15 bloggers you admire and inform the nominees by commenting on their blog.

Seven facts about myself:
1. I am an avid reader.
2. I heart coffee.
3. I enjoy learning.
4. I’ve learned that I enjoy blogging 🙂
5. I’m starting to focus on writing.
6. I’ll come back to this….
7. Ditto.

My amazing nominees are:

1.  Optimistic Kid at Life of an Optimistic Kid  Sergio writes about his life, quotes, things he finds funny, sports, music and travel. He really is an optimistic kid and was also my very first follower 🙂

2.  bulldog at The Photographic Journey of Bulldog  Bulldog is a keen photographer and shares stories to accompany his beautiful photos.  He is also a philosopher and poet, although he may not realize it yet 🙂

3.  Vic at Just Plain Ol’ Vic  Vic is straight-forward and “tells it like he sees it”.  He puts himself out there; he digs deep and shares pieces of himself.  His insights and experiences have also helped others dealing with similar issues.

4.  Tempest Rose at Nonsense & Shenanigans  Tempest is a talented writer who shares her life stories, opinions and creative writing.  Her honesty and wit are matched by her humor.  She is one-of-a-kind 🙂

5.  youretheworst at You Ain’t Special  YTW claims to be an “unrepentant, heathen smart-ass”; however, a quick read of his blog shows that there is more to him than that 🙂

6.  Bella at Earth to Bella  Bella won me over with her post, Perfect Storm.  Despite the fact that I consider myself an animal-lover, she had me laughing out loud; I could picture the scene before me.  In her blog, Bella shares eclectic anecdotes and insights including some of her writing from different stages of her life.

7.  Enrico at Shakeclouds  Enrico was an early follower and encouraged me from the beginning of my blogging experience.  I had no idea what I was doing (even less than now!), so I can’t express how much I appreciate that early feedback and encouragement 🙂

8.  7128788elf at Charles1958  Charles is a poet, academic, scholar and all-around wise person.  His blog reflects his interest in music, especially contemporary classical and rock music, as well as culture and flora and fauna.  As a librarian and information specialist, he is very happy with anything to do with books and information.

9.  aFrankAngle at A Frank Angle  Frank is eloquent and introspective; he engages and entertains with his diverse posts exploring: politics; religion; education; golf; ballroom dance; travel; and, wherever life’s journey takes him.  His active engagement sends ripples through the blogosphere 🙂

10.  Rich at KamerTunesBlog  Rich chronicles his journey as he re-discovers artists from his vast and varied music collection.  He engages in ongoing conversations with his fellow music lovers.  I was delighted to find his blog since my own music collection had been downsized; his blog helped me recover from that sadness 🙂

13.  Joeyfullystated at Joeyfully Stated: Narratives of a Neurotic & Other Nonsense  Jolene is witty and charming; her blog covers a wide range of topics, including her blissfully happy life with her Mister.

11.  Risinghawk at The Fires Inside  Rising Hawk is an author, poet and scholar of Sanskrit mantra.  RH’s wonderful writing straddles the mystical and the mundane with Power, Purpose, Perspective, and Peace.

12.  Bill Korich at billkorich  Bill is a poet and artist.  He authored his book, “A Spiritual Love Story” after his wife of 59 years passed away.  Bill’s blog includes insights and experiences from his journey through life and love.

14.  The Separated Husband at Separated Husband  TSH’s heartfelt blog chronicles the struggle and heartbreak of the dissolution of his marriage.  TSH posts his day-to-day experiences as he embarks on a ‘trial separation’; he seeks to help himself and others in the same situation.

15.  Michael33 at The Vision of Poets  Michael’s blog features poetry that has struck a chord with me, as I explored in my post, Is this Inappropriate?  His expressions have connected with his readers beautifully, as evidenced by comments on his blog.


A very sincere THANK YOU to each and every one of my followers and readers.  You’ve made my blogging experience truly rewarding.  You are all amazing!

It is also understood that some nominees may prefer an awards-free blog.  If this is the case, please decline with my thanks for your contribution to my blogging experience.

    1. Of course, I understand that some people prefer no awards or limited awards. I’m pleased that you welcome the recognition and don’t mind that other readers may find their way to your blog as a result. Thank you again 🙂


  2. Thanks so much for the recognition, Danica. I really appreciate the support and I feel just as strongly about your blog. Unfortunately, time constraints won’t allow me to participate. I will, however, be sure to check out some of the other blogs you highlighted here. Thanks for the referrals.

    Best wishes,

    1. They are amazing, aren’t they? It seems a shame to stop at 15. I’m considering posting a regular feature of noteworthy bloggers, perhaps similar to what aFrankAngle has done. What do you think? Would it be a welcome recommendation or too invasive?
