Honest Scrap Award

Tuesday, March 17 |

I can't believe it.

I won my first blog award, the Honest Scrap Award. To be honest, this is my first award ever. I recieved this award from Tuck of MY LIFE WITH TINNITUS, a honest, vunerable, yet entertaining blog about the journey of one man and the struggles he encounters because of tinnitus. Please check it out sometime and leave a comment or two.

You may be wondering what the Honest Scrap Award is all about, so I copied and pasted from Tuck's "The Meaning of This Award":

“This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog’s content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”

I am truly honored that someone would think that of LL&L; thank you, Tuck. I've already been encouraged from your writing, through your example of persistence and the courage to write with such honest conviction.

Again, quoting from Tuck’s blog, here are the requirements of the
Honest Scrap Award:

“When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!”

10 Honest Things About LL&L

  1. I used to have a dog named Toto.

  2. For a few years, I got all "E"s on my report card.

  3. I used to play the harp, and used to play bells in a bell choir.

  4. For 10 years straight, I worked 60 to 80 hours per week.

  5. I’ve moved over 30 times in my life (I stopped counting).

  6. I once had APB put out on me when I was 18 years old.

  7. I’m scared of, and avoid, the deep end, but I love swimming underwater.

  8. I used to choreograph and perform dance routines.

  9. I've smoked weed six times in my life, but hate feeling high.

  10. When Harry Met Sally reminds me of my relationship with my husband.

     Here are the seven blogs I think deserve this award:

  1. Gabriel Gadfly: Features poetry, short fiction, and book reviews; gifted writer with a unique voice

  2. Homebody Blogger: Artists, music, movie reviews and work featured or interesting interviews

  3. Bored ... Get unbored: Funny art, quotes, movies, and music to help you get unbored

  4. Da Dominion: A sprawling geek oasis, sharp humor in a dull world

  5. Buddha of Hollywood: Zen and the art of mind blogging! Enlightens by asking you to spiritually think for yourself

  6. peacelovehappiness: An exploration of those three words; life lessons from someone who has loved and lost

  7. I Do, I See: Opinions on life; not afraid to share the good, bad and ugly side of life

I had a lot of fun with this post, and I hope you liked it, too. Please check out each of the award winners, and if you like them, let them know with a comment, a Digg, a Stumble, a Tweet, click on an ad (yes, I said it) or however you show your appreciation.

To all the blogs that I hold near and dear, I thank you too for inspiration, so please don't think I forgot about you. Blogging makes the world go 'round, so keep writing honest, sincere and entertaining content, because you'll never know the impact you have on the hearts and minds of your readers.
