Thinking Blogger Award

One of my most loyal Spanish readers, Snipfer, has awarded me with the Thinking Blogger Award. 😆

So now I have to nominate myself five bloggers who make me think. Difficult thing really, specially with so many bright bloggers around.

1. My friend since I began blogging, Pastorius from Cuanas. He has a thoughtful and very beautiful blog and … even knowing he is not going to do this, I really believe that I have to mention him. The videos he posts are also very amusing (even if sometimes I don’t like their music 😆 )

2. Fausta, from Fausta’s blog. She is one of the leading bloggers of the blogosphere. Her blog is really witty. And her vision about South America is unique.

3. Angel: Hehe, one of the best women bloggers around. Incisive, bright… She ever makes you think about the subject she writes, wherever it’s pasta (those photos were a crime!!), tennis or political matters.

4. Kamangir, from Kamangir. It was for me an honor that he accepted being in the Liberty Alliance, given his accuracy and his brightness reporting about the abuses of Human Rights in Iran. He is one of the best bloggers around. And if you really want to know how the Iranian people fight everyday with not a lot of international support, you must read his blog.

5. Jeremayakovka: What can I say about him? Just go over, read him for some days and… you’ll discover him as one of the best bloggers around.

Lastly for the rules:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,

3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote. (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

Nice matters Award

Well, this has been a total surprise. I didn’t even know there was such a prize 😉 My friend Velvet Hammer from Ironic Surrealism has given me this award.

I don’t know if this blog is “of nice matters” but, even if it has been so hard at times writing it because of the stories one has to read ( 😡 ), altogether it has been (and still is) a magnificent experience, mostly because of the readers and the friends I have done writing it. And that certainly has been a “nice matter”.

I have to give it to another 7 lady-bloggers (sorry lords, no award for you, unless you want some pink and laces award… :mrgreen: ). It has been really difficult as there are so many great women bloggers around. NOTE: inactive blogs have been discarded for obvious reasons…

Kate: A Colombo-Americana’s perspective.

Incognito: Confessions of a closet republican.
Always on Watch: Always on Watch.

Stefania: Free Thoughts.

Fausta: Fausta’s blog.

Vicki: Not Ready for My Burqa.

Beth: Blue Star Chronicles.

Happy Award for all!

😳 I was forgetting. Each of you would have to name another 7 women bloggers for the award.

(Yes, I hate memes, but this was soooo cute…. :mrgreen: ).
