Award Time! Bloggers with Integrity


The way cool Malcolm isn’t way cool just because he’s bestowed the Bloggers with Integrity Award upon me way back in November. He’s cool because the pop culture he dishes is my sort of pop culture. The good stuff. If you haven’t checked him out, do so.

He’s got a wicked-cool radio show, too. His playlists rock. Check them out; he returns to the air on 19 January.

Anyway, he’s handed me this award, so now I’ve got to pay it forward, as always. A bit about the award…

This award was started by The Little Aussie Cynic to give props to those bloggers who stay true to themselves. The following paragraph, which explains the basis of the award, is taken from her blog:

“After looking, reading and watching many many Blogs and bloggers I decided to issue some recognition to those fellow bloggers I feel maintain integrity in the Blogs. All these bloggers incorporate within their wonderful sites, an integrity not always seen. They share terrific stories, topics, discussions and images. All Well worth a look.”

There are categories for this award, so here they are, with their winners:
Creativity: Definitely L^2

Social Conscience: Shelley Kneupper Tucker, who is busting her tuchas to put together this amazing Share a Square program. If you haven’t heard of it yet, go check it out. What she’s doing will blow your minds.

Spirit of Giving: This has to go to Breeni Books, who gives all her books away, along with lots of wisdom and guidance in her book reviews.

There are two more categories, but I’ve spent a month trying to figure out who to shoehorn into them. I want to give awards to all of you ’cause you are important to me. Therefore, consider yourself for one of these:
Staying True to their Beliefs
Keeping it Real

And lastly, I really shouldn’t encourage you to be my competition, but Lyric says I should. And who better to listen to than the fictional daughter of a fictional adult film star, who has gone on to open her own boutique for making women and men feel good about themselves? Check out this contest.

In my dreams, someone I know would win it and try it out to some ShapeShifter, all the while dreaming of Mitchell. Or Eric. Or Daniel. Or, yes, even Trevor.
