I am mindful that by following a blog or by adding a blog to my blog list it is considered by many to be an honour. Indeed I too believe this to be so. I am also very aware that there are quite a few awards/memes that do the rounds and that by some they are received with mixed feelings, however these make me flutter with pride when I am given one I hope you like them too!
The rules of these lovely Blog awards as I understand them, is usually to honour 5-7 Bloggers at a time, so that I guess their worth isn't diluted.
So I have decided to create my own Award and I have given myself permission to give these to several or more of my favourite bloggers in' FFF's New Year Honours' and I will again on my 'official Birthday' in August - (I don't want an unofficial birthday as one is way too much as it is!)
I'm awarding THE SOULFUL AWARD to the bloggers I find particularly insightful, original, humorous, inspiring and yes soulful!
The online Dictionary definition of soulful is - full of or expressing deep emotion
The Thesaurus offered up these synonyms - ardent, deep, expressive, feeling, fiery, fervid, impassioned, meaningful, moving, passionate, stirred, stirring, tender, touching
I'm sure you get the drift ... I passed on an award a few weeks ago, so for some of you it's the double ... but you're worth it!
"THE SOULFUL AWARD goes to" -
BS5 - you are consistently funny and sweet (that's a compliment!)
Woman in the window - she watches, she thinks, she writes such beautiful soulful posts
The View from this End - well as if I need to explain!
the Lehners in France - for their new blog
Vintage Reads - two favourite words, great blog wish it were mine..I devour it!
A shelter from the storm - Great place to hide out in from the storm clouds,
A life in the day of - I thought I had lost her mask but now she is found and still making me laugh out loud!
Halo - Words can't descrsibe this girls inner beauty
One strangely lush mother - from y neck of the woods, a little bit of home with attitude
oh and I mustn't forget Stinking Billy cos if I do he's liable to write something bad about me or come a stalking, yes I can be bought!
If you would like to pass this award to 5 -7 bloggers whom you admire and who inspire please feel free to do so, it isn't mandatory. All I ask is that you leave a link to FFF and let me know of your post so I may follow the journey.
