Cue Katrina and the Waves.
Thank you Dude the Cleaner for the magnificent honor of being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I had one empty spot in my trophy cabinet, and was hoping this day would come. In all seriousness, Blogging Awards are a great way to promote one-another’s material, to acknowledge unique talent, and have some fun at the same time. Please be sure to check out Dude the Cleaner’s wonderful website, a brilliant blog on movies from across the world; Cinephile.
I realize many Bloggers don’t acknowledge such awards, even going so far as proclaiming their sites as ‘Award Free’, and that’s fine. But I’m not one of them. While I will politely decline any repeat nomination, I’m happy to have been given the opportunity to participate, and especially the added bonus of having a topic dropped into my lap.
I think I’ve pretty much reached my award quota at this point, it’s been a wonderful honor, thank you to all my previous nominators.
And for those who I nominate, please remember, participation is entirely optional. I will not be offended if you choose to ignore/decline the nomination, roll your eyes, or even add me to your Blocked Senders List (although that would be a bit harsh).
The rules are simple:
Acknowledge the person who nominated you.
Link to their site.
Answer the questions.
Create your own questions.
Nominate others and notify them of the nomination.
Here we go:
