Blog Award

These days I’m more reluctant to accept blog awards because of the amount of time they can tie up. I’m truly grateful for the nominations and love the friends who have made the gesture.

However, today I was nominated for an award with a difference, there are no rules attached. I’m therefore doubly grateful to my wonderful friend and a great writer Jane Dougherty of   who as nominated me for the ‘One Lovely Blog  Award’ and I’m happy to follow her lead in how to deal with it.


About myself. I’m not currently writing any books and spend most of my time on the internet answering mail, tweeting other authors books and/or commenting on their blogs and preparing my own once weekly blog.  There are times when circumstances warrant it that I will do more than one blog a week but I have to think it’s either important enough or funny enough not to bore anyone ( Here’s the exception that proves the rule ).

Bloggers or Blogs I think deserve the same award.

There are lots of blogs I recognise as brilliant out there like Seumas Gallacher and Chris, The Story Reading Ape, Carol E Wyer at Facing 50 with humour, K.D.Keenan at Obsidianmirrorblog and Christy Birmingham at Poetic Parfait, and hundreds more but they’ll understand that I can’t include everybody. All my friends deserve a pat on the back so let it be implied if your name isn’t here, and please, if your name has appeared, don’t take it that you have to accept the award if you have an award free blog. It’s just my recognition of the entertainment or education you provide me.

Hugs to the World

  2. David thank you so much that is a lovely end to the week and I am very honoured that you enjoy our collaboration.. that is how I view my blog – without the response from those that read it, I would feel I was talking to a blank wall and would have given up a long time ago. That is the reason that I do not usually accept awards, however as this enables me to award a mention to those who also collaborate with me I will certainly pass it along. All my love and great big hugs… Sally XX

  7. David, I am speechless! Thank you for this truly lovely award, of which I am most humbly honored. I don’t know what to say, except “BIG HUGS” to you with great thanks too! The very BEST ‘end’ to my vacation…:)

  8. Congratulations, David. Yea! Bravo! ClapClapClap. You truly deserve this award!

    • When people ask why I spend so much time at the computer, and why I answer every message, You’re the reason I give.When one knows such special people, as much time as possible is spent in their company.
      Thank you so much.

    Your blog is very much worthy of this award and more. You are a first class writer who never fails to entertain, engage, enlighten, and make us smile. Your choice of bloggers for nomination are equally first rate. Bravo!

    • Thanks so much.I should be congratulating you really as I’ve just been looking at one of your wonderful paintings. It’s so vivid and bright, the seaside scene.

  11. Congratulations to you David, very well deserved. Your blog is a little bit of calming heaven for me and your replies to my posts are truly wonderful and make my day.

    • You are an absolute Sweetie Kim.Sometimes, like this morning, when I’ve just finished telling Yvonne I think my blog has gone ff the boil and the humour just isn’t there anymore, along you come and brighten my day. I don’t suppose you’d all like to move up here would you? I promise to buy doughnuts every Saturday.

      • Doughnuts every Saturday! You know me too well. My husband is convinced that if he wasn’t a chef when I met him he would never have stood a chance.

      • Being a chef certainly doesn’t hurt.It wouldn’t hurt to tell him that’s the only reason you stay either, he’ll keep coming up with nice recipes to keep you.

  12. Hi David, I too have nominated you for an award. The rules have been somewhat subverted, so you don’t have to do the facts about yourself, stuff. However, if you don’t want to accept I’ll quite understand.

  13. Congratulations David, well deserved

  14. So many found you before I did … but nobody {{{HUGZ}}} you tighter than I do! Congratulations. You certainly deserved it.
