Creating people's geographies
Its always nice to get peer recognition, particularly from a blogger whom you respect and regularly read, so I am honoured.
Jolly has been nominated for a Thinking Blog seven times, an indication of the esteem in which Reconstitution is held. He in turn nominated this blog for one of those, and many other great blogs I was delighted to discover. (Here’s my post on the Thinking Blogger Award; I’ll reserve my selections for this Thoughtful Award for a forthcoming post when I am afforded some more time).
The Thoughtful Award is for the following:
For those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping others bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.
I’m chuffed! Jolly very graciously (methinks he’s being very modest too) writes:
Reclaiming Space also deserves this award. Ann is very, very in depth, and she will patiently break it down for you if (like me) you don’t quite absorb it on the first go-round.
His citation for the Thinking Blog Award was: “Reclaiming Space is all over the place-politics, world events, humanity, the environment, technology. The posts are all in-depth, written by an author who knows the subject. Whatever the subject of the day happens to be.” Thank you, Jolly Roger. In the spirit of this award, I’ve noticed Jolly also has a Blogroll Round-up introducing new blogroll links which I think is a great idea, and another way of welcoming people into the blogging community. With a burgeoning and thriving blogosphere that embraces critical thinking and doesn’t swallow the Fox News-type media, Jolly memorable notes: “We hardly need a MSM anymore, except to spit and sneer at”.
Let’s keep up the good work, dear friends, and be the world we wish to see, to paraphrase Gandhi. Hope you have a lovely weekend, and I’ll be back on deck next week. Teaching got into full swing this week, and I had a few writing projects, which is why I managed to keep away for almost a week. I did it! ;)
