Introducing...the Blogosphere Award!
An original, new award designed and created by Crystal Clear Proofing!

There have been a lot of awards circulating lately, due in part to the amazing talent of Chris at CC-Chronicles, who created three outstanding awards, which were unveiled last Friday and given in recognition, appreciation and acknowledgement, and also as a sort of final curtain call to BBAW. I credit her with the inspiration I felt to create this award.

I enjoyed Book Blogger Appreciation Week. It made me think of how we're all in this "blogging world" together. There are several different genres and types of blogs, and topics for them. But the one thing we all have in common is - blogging. We share ideas, visit sites and discover new ones, leave comments, and meet some truly wonderful people. I thought it would be great to create something to commemorate that.

I would love to someday see this award on every blog!

It's purpose is simply to acknowledge what we all have in common, and spread some HAPPY! It's exciting to receive an award! You're being given a gift, you're being recognized, appreciated. You're being thought of. And it's FUN! Who doesn't like any of those things?

The rules of this award are simply to acknowledge from whom you received it, and pass it on to people you think would like to have it, for whatever reason you want, or for no special reason at all! Don't NOT pass this, or any award for that matter, on to someone just because they already have one of that award. Receving more than one of any award is an incredible compliment and honor! Being thought of always makes a person feel good!

We're all SHARING when we blog. So please spread this around! Share it with others, the way you share with everyone every time you post on your blog! Spread some HAPPY! Unite in what we all share and have in common...the Blogosphere!

To begin its spin through the Blogosphere, I'm presenting this award to the following individuals:

Diane - Spunk On A Stick
Chris - CC-Chronicles
Jo-Jo - Jo-Jo Loves to Read
Not Nessie - Today's Adventure
Marvin - The Old Silly
Carolyn - The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-in Editor

(If your name is not listed, rest assured there will be more presented! Just giving others a chance to give). And...

You just never know when you might receive a Blogosphere!

An award post seemed an appropriate place to pass on the
Dragon's Loyalty Award.


I received this award Friday from Chris (along with The Quest Award), and also from Diane yesterday, when she passed it on to me. Thank you, ladies!

Now each of you below have recevied this award already, but you consistently visit my blog, and I sincerely appreciate your support!

Chris - CC-Chronicles
Diane - Spunk On A Stick
Marvin - The Old Silly

So, "doubling up" and "bouncing back" this award, I'm honoring you again!



  1. Aw, thank you Crystal!

    I believe our whole purpose in life is to connect with others, lift them up, and make life better for them.

  2. Thank you so much for the wonderful awards. I love the Blogoshere. It uses my favorite color, green and looks fabulous on my page. Thank you, thank you!! I will be passing it on in a post tomorrow morning.

    By the way, I absolutely love Liz the proof reader in your side bar!!

  3. Hey thanks, Crystal! Love the interconnectedness feel of the blogosphere award. and yeah I have the Dragon one already, but, well ... You're just a peach for thinkin' of The Old Silly.

  4. Chris, first you are very welcome!! I'm SO happy you like the Blogosphere! YOU inspired me to make that! :)

    And you are too funny - my friend, that says, "I iz proof readz..." not "Liz"! LOL! That made my day!!! (Actually, I don't know why they put a comma in there - does make it confusing. Not good sentence structure!


    Marvin you are also welcome! And be HAPPY to have more than one of ANY award! Read my post over! It's an honor, my friend!

    I've seen on others' sites Awards pages similar to yours, and beneath each award is listed the person from whom they received it. Some awards they'd gotten SEVERAL times! Mine are on my sidebar, but I do have one I've received twice, and both givers are listed!

    As for the Blogosphere Award I am SO glad you like it - interconnectedness - the unity of all of us was/is EXACTLY my intent!

  5. Congrats to you Crystal...and thanks for passing it on to me! I will be sure to share the 'happy' and pass this one on.

  6. Jo-Jo and NotNessie -

    I'm so happy you like the award. I had so much fun creating it, and especially like the meaning behind it. The fellowship and unity of all of us in the blogosphere!

  7. Oh, my gosh! I am delighted to receive this award! It will be fun to pass it to others I know. Thank you!
