It's an Award - and it's a Sign!

20 December 2007 5 comments


Jos at NoDirectOn (not: NoDirection)
has created this award badge as a clear signal to the visitors of those blogs that carry it.






Jos had this to say about his award:

It is intended to be a sign that says: "this blog is cool & crazy, and the blog owner is not afraid to admit it".
It is for those bloggers that I think are really Cool -- and I suspect they are a little Crazy too.
They are running their blogs to be a true reflection of their own personality and they stick to it. They are providing an atmosphere that makes their visitors feel welcome as members of their blogs' community. They manage to use the right tone of voice, write about an inspiring choice of subjects and treat their visitors and their fellow bloggers as friends. And they all do that without taking themselves or their blogs too serious, in spite of all the time and the crazy hard work they put into it.

Thank you very much Jos !!

I am passing this award on to .....
Lyn at IT'S A WOMAN'S WORLD for being such a terrific interviewer and for having the qualities that Jos has mentioned in his award

    Congratulations on another well deserved award - everything Jos says applies to you. I'm not sure if you are a little crazy though - if you are it's in the nicest possible way!

    'ave a bonza Christy an' a beaut New Year, mate(s)!

    Not sure how it is that we're not linked up. When I check who's linked to my joint, Laketrees is on the list.

    link:maryannaville.blogspot.com is what I use in both Yahoo's and Google's search engines.

    thanks for the kind words Diane
    haha....crazy....yes ...but that's another story...and has nothing to do with blogging....:)

    and a bonza Xmas to you too MA...
    I think I will start using Google as Technorati is proving less friendlier each day....
    I listed a SAMPLE here....I know you are linked to me and I'm linked to you.....in fact there would be multple links between us...wouldn't you say....but at the moment Technorati is not registering any of my links ....IN or OUT....
    I obviously don't exist at all when it comes to Technorati :D
    look out Alexa and Google !.here I come :)

    Yes you are Cool and Crazy, but most of all you are a great blogger friend - so thanks for the link love too.

    I use Technorati to check the pingback on my blog (thats how I found this post too).

    I'm pleased that they are still proving reliable for you Renny...as there are many who have lost the will to check out their authority there :)
