Christmas Awards – The Inventive Blogger Award


This is a new award, no one else has the badge on their blog, so it’s EXCLUSIVE to DonCharisma.org. The idea was given to me by paulettemotzko, it’s adapted slightly, there are only five answers now needed to accept the award.

The badge is new, it’s not available anywhere else, so get it whilst it’s hot :) The “lego” bridge is a real bridge in Germany, check out the link at the end of the post.

The bloggers that I’ve nominated are all memorable to me for one reason or another. They are very inspiring and positive people, whom I’m very proud to call friends, or as close to friends as it gets on WordPress. All of them are inventors in their own ways.

If you don’t accept Awards then please pass on to someone else who may like it or just know it’s the thought that counts.

Section 1: Directions for you to accept the The Inventive Blogger Award

1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the The Inventive Blogger Award.

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen- there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required- and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.

3. Include in your blog post *FIVE* things that you enjoy about blogging.

4. Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them- (please don’t alter the instructions or the badge!)

5. Come over and say hello to the originator of the “The Inventive Blogger Award” via this link: http://DonCharisma.org/2013/12/24/christmas-awards-the-inventive-blogger-award

6. And as a winner of the award- please add a link back to the blog that presented you with this award, and then proudly display the award on your blog.

Section 2: FIVE things I enjoy about blogging.

1. I enjoy meeting new people, I find this a very enriching, there’s a wealth of diversity here on WordPress. Most bloggers are friendly happy go lucky people, so often I’m inspired day-in day-out.

2. I love the creative aspects, waking up in the morning with nothing, going to bed at night having created, designed and invented graphics and writing, which some times are marvels, mini-masterpieces, in my opinion, obviously !

3. The chance to share my ideas and creations with other bloggers and the internet connected world.

4. I enjoy seeing other bloggers grow, and sometimes I’m part of this, which is very rewarding.

5. Every now and then I blog myself stupid, in which case I enjoy the taking a break from blogging. But every time I’m back again after a rest:)

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year

    1. Lovely acceptance post, very much in the spirit and lovely writing:)

      I’m following you and your sister now, and hope we’ll keep in touch …

      Warm regards

      Don Charisma

  1. Oh my… you are very efficient. I am not. I didn’t think of myself as inventive either – but that changed. Today, I’m inventing new ideas. Yep, I’m to launch a new (inventive) campaign.
    Cheers Don.
    Thanks for inventing the inventive blogger award.
    ~ Eric

  2. Good Day to you Sir.

    I have been awarded this fine award by the man of multiple personalities ( or just one hell of a crazy ass house ) over at Randomnecessities.com. I will be passing this award on to a few others here soon and am feeling very privileged.

    Thank you for creating this award.

  3. Hello there, fine Sir. I’m inspiredbythedivine1, and my blog, The Arm Chair Pontificator (variouspontifications.com), was awarded The Inventive Blogger Award by my pals at randomnessities.com. Great honor to have been given this. I’m passing it on to a few others, and hope they’ll do the same with it. Great idea and thanks for creating the award.

  4. Happy New Year my Charismatic friend:)

    May this year bring us all much calm,joy and peace. I’m honored by your awards and friendship Don, you are one of my many blessings of 2013.

    1. Hey Dotta, Happy New Year also:)

      Good to hear from one of my oldest friends on WordPress, hope all is well with you:)

      I hope for 2014 awesomeness for us both too

      Warm regards

      DC

    1. You are welcome, and thanks for dropping me a message, I think you’re the first one that read the rules LOL

      I’ve added you to blogs I’m following, keep in touch, warm regards DC

  6. Thank you so much for the award, Don, and for including me. And not just one but SEVEN awards! It’s like one of those big Grammy winners posing for the cameras at the end of the night, beaming away happily with their armload of gramophone trophies, *air kiss! air kiss!* LOL! Cheers mate, and Merry Christmas to you!

  7. Thank you very much Don Charisma. I feel honored to receive so much from you. Very appreciated.
    I have few problems with my internet, I’m close to my limit for december, but I will do my best to follow your instructions a.s.a.p.
    Irene

  8. very humble thanks, Don, for the award. And for the “blog of the year” one too. There are six ‘comments’ from you that popped up on my “Baseline” page.

    The WordPress community is a very different thing than what I’ve experienced on any of the previous blog sites I’ve used and these award things baffle me a bit. I got one before a few months back, but did nothing about it. Wasn’t sure what it actually meant, still don’t actually.

    Maybe I’m just not used to such recognition.

    I’ll write something up as an examinative explanation. In the meantime, have yourself a wonderfully peaceful and Joyous Christmas.
    and thanks again.

  9. Hello, Thank you for visiting and following my blog. I appreciate it very much. I love and respect the fact that you wrote in your post above, that you like to see other bloggers grow.
    I will read your blog, and I’m sure it is a lot of inpiration and wisdom to find in it. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

  10. Hi Don, thank you so much, that’s such an honour and I love that you created your own award and badge ☺️ I am woefully behind with responding to awards but I have a day in the holiday planned to catch up and honour those who have honoured me!

    Thank you again and Merry Christmas 🎄

  11. I am so honored, Don! I am going to enter into the no-awards zone, too, like navigator1965, but it was a blast receiving so many from you today. You spread happiness in many ways.

      1. Ha! Well that’s just frightening.

        Hmm. I actually enjoy hanging over the side of the couch and putting sunglasses on my neck so my chin looks like a nose…cracks me up.

        This show had a following or just you?😉 Kidding! The eyeball freaks me out…

        I may never get the image out of my head. Or look at myself the same way. LOL

      2. LOL, hoped you’d see the funny side and looks like you did … and yes the show had a massive following, it’s one of the great British comedy/sci-fi shows.

        Merry xmas DC

      3. LOL, there’s always a risk of misunderstanding on internet, so happy that you’ve seen the funny and +ve side:) And also to have given you something funny to show others … I think if you search for “chinface red dwarf” you will find other sketches from the same show, this one I picked at random:)

        Merry Christmas,

        Warm regards

        DC

      4. Was good I enjoyed, combo of dressing, cherry tomatoes, green & yellow peppers, cucumber, chilli and coriander … very awesome:)

        I said it, I’m always making up new expressions and words !

        Warmest regards

        Don Charisma

      5. Lukewarm, then cool I guess, right along to frosty, but don’t think I’d want to go much further than that … PMSL !

        Is this one of those see who can get the last word conversations ?

        Huggles

    1. You are welcome, and it’s correct that it posted 5/6 times, I’ve given you 7 awards in total, you get a pingback for each award. See my latest blog posts for details.

      Warm regards and Merry Christmas

      Don Charisma

  12. Much appreciated, Amigo. But I’m afraid I am so far in arrears with awards that I have to embrace a no-awards policy just for self preservation. Comes from being techno-incompetent.

    Cheers!

      1. I’ve taken you off my list of blogs I give awards to, not because I don’t like you, but because you asked me to.

        Warm regards, merry Christmas, Don Charisma
