Hot Potato Award Winners!

on May 24, 2012

Here are the first Hot Potato Award winners in alphabetical order. Each of these bloggers nominated me for a blog award but, as I am reluctant about awards, I have created the Hot Potato Award which is free of complicated criteria. Again, the only rule for the HPA is that you either accept it and copy/paste it to your blog, or you don’t. You cannot pass it on – it’s yours.

The first ‘winner’ is a cheeky cherub. Her blog is delightfully unpredictable and inspiring.

The second winner is one of the kindest, most generous-hearted people I have ever come across. She is a prolific blogger and a poetic photographer.

The third winner is the first person who ever nominated me. Her blog is a brilliant example of creative writing at its best.

The fourth winner is a nature-loving adventurer who combines photographs and anecdotes expertly.

To all winners: Please simply take this award with my heartfelt gratitude for your support and encouragement and for your wonderful blogs! Many thanks again to Lisa and to the potato for the graphic!

PS. As an award-shy person, I have decided to respond to any nominations I receive by rewarding the nominators with the HPA. If you have received nominations for awards you already have, or if you are like me and don’t want awards, please feel free to use the HPA!

PPS. If you happened to nominate me and you are not on this list, please let me know, and you will be next – hehe!

  1. Thanks so much, Julie. I’m honoured! Wait till I tell my husband I’m still a hot potato! I like the simplicity of this award. It’s so nice that you thought of me. You’re one hot potato yourself.

    Very clever Julie!

  4. Awwww Jules… you made me cry. Why?

    For you to give this to me means the world. I think of you every day (that’s no BS) and all that you have to cope with. I cannot thanm YOu enough ever for the perspective you help me keep. Even doing it now and you cannot even tell, huh?

    I have not allowed anyone to give me a nick name since childhood and yet from you I am honored. And would let it stick. Cheeky Cehrub somehow works. Although certainly I am not sure why.~ Wait until I tell D. He will so much think this true and fitting.

    I with graet honor and deep appreciation accept this from you in all the spirit inw hich you created and give this award.
    I honestly heart you Jules.
