Marlyn Suarez Exconde is pretty amazing. She’s introducing me to blogging awards I didn’t even know existed! She graciously nominated me for The Cracking Chrispmouse Bloggywog Award, which honors blogs that “spread one or more of joy, peace, hope and love”. Sounds good to me! Truly keeping the spirit of Christmas all throughout the year.
And in the childlike wonder and fresh-faced attitude that sometimes accompanies Christmas and always the youth, I’d like to give a shout-out to Dana of Spilled Ink. Dana nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. She’s a sixteen year-old maintaining a blog with some pretty sweet poetry on it. Did I mention she’s sixteen? I can’t even imagine maintaining a blog at the age of sixteen. But then again, I’m not even sure there was such a thing when I was sixteen. I certainly didn’t know how to navigate it if there was. I’m slowly getting old and out of touch, it seems. Which is where Whitney Houston comes in. No, I’m not speaking ill of the dead. I believe the children are our future. Dana doesn’t quite fit the definition of ‘child’, but if young people like her keep creating and sharing, they will change the face of the world.
