An Award for Ashley From Overcoming Schizophrenia

Regular reader, (and commentator), Vivienne has entrusted me with the coveted Nice Blogger award.

(Read with Royal English announcer voice.)

I, with great honor and humility, accept this honorable...uh...honorAND IN TURN wish to pay it forward to a recent regular contributor to this here blog which has recently, for reasons I wish not to disclose, suffered a bit from lack of tending BUT I DIGRESS!

The envelope please...

I would like to give this award to Douglas of Boomer Musings Valash from Overcoming Schizophrenia. Although Ashley is not a regular participant to this blog I figure what she does for society is so far beyond any self promoting pyramid scheme this "Award" tradition really started as anyway. I don't remember exactly how I found her blog at first, most likely in the forums, but I have learned so much more about schizophrenia than I ever expected to. Though this little recognition will do little to help her current insurance troubles, I hope it will help her through some of her dark days that there are people out there that applaud her efforts and successes. Good Luck Ashley!

As always I will modify the rules as I see fit because I wouldn't have it any other way. ;)

Award Details and Rules
  • This award is a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
  • This award was redesigned to award those who seek and redefine all the reasons why we love blogging.
  • Never forget to mention the person who gives you the award.

Before I let you go, my short little statement about why I love blogging is simple.

Before I started blogging and after years of unanimous dislike for pretty much anything I had to write, I felt that any skill I thought I had was a waste of time and space. Now I don't feel the same. Or at least I have been lucky enough to find people who are nice enough to pretend otherwise. ;)

Thanks for the well wishes, much appreciated.
Don't think it was because I commented on his flat (although I've taken that post away, thanks for hte tip) but because htey sold me to the client as a Manager when knowing that I'm a coordinator. Eitehr way, kinda discouraging.
But, the sun is shining and I'm quite happy today! :)
