So Much for Sunday: Awards

chocolate-icingbecause you know you really want a slice

Sunday seems like an appropriate day to be particularly thankful for all that is good in the world and so, with that in mind, Across the Bored would first like to send out a very large chocolate-covered Thank You to all who have stuck by us for the longest time through thick and thin, bounty and drought, to all who have followed along, passed by, commented, liked and laughed or just browsed. It is also an opportunity to thank those bloggers who have forwarded awards and to whom (insert profuse apologies here) we have been procrastinating in responding more quickly to…

boty-2star1  Boundaries and Edges is sci-fi and experimental fiction author Theresa Barker’s blog: her statement “pushing the boundaries of writing and running along the edges of imagination” extends far beyond to all those who choose to express their creativity in forms that reach out and touch others. Read a great twist on Lost and Found in her Freshly Pressed post. Many thanks go out to Theresa as she was kind enough to forward the Blog of the Year 2013 award which has a few straight-forward  rules which may be found by following the link. We hope there will be one for 2014 and would like to pass this one along to Life portoFolio who treats life, love and getting by in Greece with her own particular brand of humour. Have a peek at her Mad Cowz while there!

doncharisma-org-most-influential-blogger-award-womanA big thank you goes to A Day in the Life who has sent along a Most Influential Blogger award – she blogs about “People, Places, Nature, Life!” and participates in many challenges and prompts. Wings and a superhero crest? Yahoo! Across the Bored’s own suit is presently at the dry cleaner’s getting a badly needed refreshing but we do love to virtually win friends and influence people so this one goes straight to the sidebar.

Conditions For Accepting The Award

To accept this award, the awardee must do the following:

  1. Display the Award on your Blog.
  2. Announce your win with a blog post and thank the Blogger who awarded you. Do not lump this award with any other award in a “basket”, “bouquet” or “collection” etc, I would rather you didn’t accept the award.
  3. Present 10 deserving Bloggers with the Award.
  4. Link your awardees in the post and let them know of their being awarded with a comment (or a pingback).
  5. Include an embedded video of your current favourite song (YouTube has virtually everything, just copy and paste the link into your WordPress editor). If a video is not possible you can embed a SoundCloud track.

And the Award goes to:

Check them all out – each one is influential in their own right, has a distinctive point of view and offers us a unique perspective on how their world looks!

The last dregs of winter are slowly fading away (but it’s almost June, you say!) and the cosmos is conspiring to make us all smile with the prospect of summer. As is usually the case, we stumble upon things that resurrect and sustain us: amazing photographs, a kind word or comment that makes us laugh out loud, a memory long-forgotten, love in its many guises and the possibility of just being. The Wild Smiles know all about it and have captured it in an infectious tune that gets it just right. Go get ’em boys…
