The 2017 Respect Award

I give this award out once a year as a way to acknowledge
and show respect to fellow bloggers.

I respect you because, you’re compassionate, witty, interesting,
rebellious, imaginative, patient, open-minded, and creative.

I respect you because you are generous with your words and
support; you walk your talk.

I respect you because you raise my spirits and make me smile.

I respect you because you make me a better blogger.

I respect you because you make me feel human.

Nominees don’t have to do a thing.  Nada.  Nothing.

I’ve done my best to avoid nominating people who don’t accept
awards.

But again, this is a no obligation award.

The Respect Award

I first introduced the Respect Award in October of 2015.

I think I give one twice a year or probably intend to. 🙂

I started this list of nominees in April.

Every person on this list uses blogging to make life a little
smarter
and more compassionate for everyone.

A little goes a long way.

I don’t always agree with the opinions of my nominees
but I always agree with the intention.

Rules of the award: None.

I’ve done my best to leave out award free blogs.

Some of the nominees are repeats and some are new.

To all of my nominees: Respect…

The Respect Award – Round Two

Respect

The Respect Award Comes to me from YesterdayAfter

I received it early in October and decided to wait until I had a list of nominees.

The “Respect” Award is my personal award for fellow bloggers who consistently reach out to other bloggers, offer support, are kind, struggle to understand differences in people, and who treat themselves and other people with kindness and respect.

I’ve also added ‘courage’ to the list of criteria this time.

Bloggers who show courage in their daily lives.

You don’t have to do anything for this award.

You can choose to copy the Award Picture and give the award to the people who have earned your respect or you can do nothing.

This is my way of saying thank you. You have earned my respect.
