Brillante Weblog Premio - 2008 Blog Award

Nikki Leigh nominated Writers in the Sky Blog for the Brillante Weblog Premio - 2008 Blog Award. The award goes to blog owners who provide exceptional and useful content on a consistent basis.

I want to pay it forward, so I have chosen five blogs that I think are worthy of this award. The choice wasn't easy, but I have narrowed it down to the following. These are in no particular order.

Cherise Thorne's blog http://www.knowingspirit.blogspot.com/ is filled with informative posts, lovely poetry, beautiful photos, and is so soothing to visit. She allows other people to post their work on her blog thereby giving them a chance to be noticed. Her energy is very comforting and loving, so I always come away feeling uplifted and peaceful. Cherise has a radio show and a free newsletter that further enhances her blog and online presence.

Hal Manogue http://halmanogue.blogspot.com/created his blog just to share his thoughts and insights with people and show how we are all one in spirit. However, his blog has been a birth place for several of his books including his latest Short Sleeves Insights Live An Ordinary Life In A Non-Ordinary Way. I love his compassionate, non-judgmental way of sharing his truth with others.

Janet Riehl's blog http://www.riehlife.com/ has a wide variety of topics as she takes us all over the world with her poetic writing and daily insights. Her literary journey is dotted with photos, clip art, and useful links to other people's work. She has a great list of resources, too! Her blog is interactive and invites a lot of comments.

Barbara Techel 's book Frankie the Walk -n Roll Dog and her blog http://www.joyfulpaws.typepad.com/have got to be one of the cutest I've ever seen. Her top-quality posts are about topics relevant to physically challenged people and animals. Frankie is her dachshund who suffered a spinal cord injury and walks by using a custom-made set of wheels. Kids will love this blog too!

Tarot by Arwen http://tarotbyarwen.blogspot.com/ Horoscopes, tarot readings, and recipes, this blog has a lot of great content. Arwen even brings in a spiritual and writing component that I really enjoy. Plus, she has a great resource list of other blogs that I also like reading. I could spend all day on her blog.

Yvonne, I've just returned home from 3 weeks in Southern Africa. What a nice welcome home gift this is! I'm so happy to be in the company of these other four blogs you've nominated...some I know and others I'll now be getting to know.

Many congratulations on your blog nomination. How typically generous of you to pass it on. Is there a way we can vote for your blog, or, how does it work?

Janet Riehl

Well, it looks like I've been foiled. Here are some interesting background links on this award that you might find of interest. It is a hoax. Thank you, Janet Riehl for learning of this sad truth and for letting us know about the sham.
