Blog Awards & Nominations

OK, so I received these awards from Harry over at Dribbling Pensioner (that old geezer<– I meant that in a good way :)) on March 21, 2012. I’ve been a bit preoccupied with a school project so I haven’t fulfilled by awardee duties. Come to think of it, I haven’t been fulfilling my blogging duties either 🙄 (After this post, I’m going into the naughty corner)

I don’t know what the rules are for the HUG AWARD, but I guess I’ll just pass it on to someone who needs a digital hug today 🙂

The Sunshine Award

Sunlight represents a ray of hope, so again because I don’t know the official rules for this award, I’ll just pass it on to some of my blog friends. Always have hope despite the struggles that you may be having at any given time in your life 🙂

You Got Blasted!!

The best way a blogger can show love is by visiting another bloggers blog and clicking LIKE. If that blogger submits a comment, that’s even grander. I don’t know if it’s the same for everyone, but whenever I check my email and see something like:

Sender                                                      Subject                                                                  [AmorsThoughts] XYZ liked your post “ABC”         [AmorsThoughts] Comment: “ABC”

I am OVERJOYED! I feel like I have won the lottery. Everyone seeks validation, and when you guys take the time to like and comment on one of my ramblings, you validate me. Shit, I feel a tear rolling down!

To that end, I’d like to BLAST a couple of my biggest followers. The ones that have been with me through THICK and THIN. By thin I mean the days when I see a discernable 0 views  on my Site Stats 🙂

  3. Futuristically Yours
  5. Diva Diary
  6. I’m Alright, The Whole World’s Wrong
