Blog Award Day

Mommy Dearest from The Quirk Factor was kind enough to pass this award along to me. I tried to find a translation for the word "proximidade" online to no avail. Proximidade might mean "now" as that makes sense in context with the other words. I worked out the meaning of those words to be something like "This blog gives credit to..."

Anyway, One can infer from the rules that the award is for having a charming blog. Thank you much my fellow Michigander!

The Rules:

Leave the following message on your post when you pass the award on to their chosen eight blogger buddies.
“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Now to pass on the award. Ooh, this is usually hard for me because unlike Mommy Dearest who was able to name not eight but nine winners, I'm the introverted sort who is sloowly expanding her blogging circle. I had to work hard to find worthy winners, but I managed! For being charming, this blog gives credit now to:

1. Marla Baltes

2. Autism, Blessing Challenges (private)

3. Questgirl's Xanga Site

4-8. Five blogs I handpicked from entries on the blog Faces of Autism by Casdok (who gets an honorary one). This award is designed for people to reach out to each other which is similar to the mission of "Faces" which is designed to help people in the autism community reach out to others.

That said, I will grant this award to some of the most recent family blogs that have been posted at the site. They are: Our Life with Autism; A Mother's Love Story; Matthew's Autism Journey; A Walkabouts Weblog; and A World Away.

All these sites seem deserving of the award as I've enjoyed reading a least two posts (in some cases many more) of all these blogs. I keep telling myself that I need to get out in the blogosphere a little more, but I guess I'm taking baby steps in true toddler fashion; take a burst of steps, stop and then toddle a little further. This was another burst of progress. : )

Update: Had a technical glitch with some linkage problems. They are fixed now. : )
