Maybe not an Oscar but a Christy - surely!
















I got this, from one of my fav. Bloggers;
Actually, I would've liked to nominate her, but since she gave it to meeeee, then she's already got one, on her virtual mantelpiece - or wherever one keep such prizes!
 - Well now; The name of the game, is to pass it on to 4-5 Blogs, that I find either Creative, Standing Out From the Crowd or something to that extent..
Here's the basic rules and where the "Awards" comes from, originally in 2007(!!) 

There's some other (interesting) categories, but "Creative Blogger" is the one that I won.. And so; I'll pass it on to the worthy; of which I've seen quite a few!! - Can you tell, how exorbitantly proud I am?

Okay, let's rock 'n' Roll;

"The Creative Blogger Award"

"For those who bring unique and creative elements to their blogs. For those who incorporate art, music, creative writing, photo's, and other beautiful visual effects into their website. For those who put a unique spin on things and come up with new ideas. This award is for the artsy, the funky, the inventor, and even the rebel. This award is for those creative individuals who stand out from the crowd."

For a Blog as unusual a jewish spoof, which takes a lot of insight and a great sense of humour and turns everything upside down, and sometimes far, far, far out - Oh and always a great detail paid to the illustrations!

Well, this one is a given.... Art with a view and a message... The man is good!

Markus is travelling from Helsinki to Uluru... And right now in Australia. Beeing a storyteller by profesion, he earns his way spinning a yarn and writing... Maybe the grammar isn't spotless, but his 20/20 eyesight is....

The open letters from an ardent admirer; Belacqua Jones, the alter ego of Case Wagenvoord, is hilarious in all its tragic truthfullness...The somber blog letter/layout is very office-like and realistic ...

Poetry with a message... This is Rebels with at least a dozen causes, but with a soothing and at the same time exciting template. Exciting in a" Oh, I think I found a hidden treasury map" way!- And yes! You will find hidden gems all over the place..; "Art pearls", "Poetry diamonds", "Activism gold", "Human-rights coins" and every thing else in between to enrich your soul and enlighten your senses...

                                                    ~~~

OBS - OBS - OBS -

I'd also wanted to nominate the following photoBlog;

 "Images" is part of "The Record.com" 
This photo-blog's chock-full of superb eyewitness reports from all over the world...!
The photos are of very, and I do mean, very high quality! And the comments will in short & precise prose clarify, as to when, where and whom!
  - Don't know if they'll even accept this nomination ... as this Blog page is a very sobering case of only pics and text.. Absolutely no frills! 

Update!! Update!! Update!! Update!!

It's been absolutely impossible to give the "award" to 
"The Record/images" as there's no way to contact them... The whole set up is a bit confusing? It's a collection of very diverse Blogs thrown together for no apparent reason, but the "Images" part is totally top notch photo journalism! - Maybe someone can inform me, what this is all about, maybe someone knows about this concept - if it is a concept... that is! Please?

Gabs,

Thank you for the honor. Unfortunately, you swiped one of my nominees when you tapped "Poetic Justice." Mark Prime deserves it, though.

Case Wagenvoord said...

You beat me to Ben Heine, too.
