Prémio Dardos - or Darts Prize

Holly Jahangiri honored me with the Prémio Dardos - or Darts Prize. Thank you, Holly.

The Prémio Dardos is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

Though Holly hasn't been unable to ascertain the origin of the Prémio Dardos, she believes it began in Portugal or Brazil and this is the closest rendition of the original intent available:

1) Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.

2) Pass the award to another 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment, remembering to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been selected for this award. So, I am passing the torch to:

Double M's take on books, blogs, dogs, networking & life

Denise Cassino - Perspectives and Preponderances

Books and Authors

My Friend Amy

Write On! Advice From an Editor

Sharing with Writers and Readers

Notes from the Handbasket

Kat Logic

Char's Book Reviews and Writing News

Jen's Blog

Karen and Robyn - Writing for Children

Rena Jones

Crystalee Calderwood

Ransom Noble - Writer

Elysabeth's Emerald City

Yes, some are connected to 4RV Publishing, but most aren't.

Tagged yet again - hahaha - not sure how much cultural, ethical, literary or personal value I add to the web. I'll try - so accepted - E :)

Thanks so much, Vivian. I am truly honored. I will post a comment on Kat Logic as soon as the contest ends tonight.

Rena said...

Thank you, Vivian! :)

Hi Vivian,
Thanks for the award. I'll be following up on it on January 11, next Sunday, since I have my blogs already lined up until then.

Jane Kennedy Sutton also bestowed this award on me a few days ago, so I'll make it a dual blog for the award, since 30 links would be a but much. (G)

Thank you so much for honoring, Viv. I hope you and your lovely catalog of authors get a lot from it! I humbly accept and will try to get a few of my favorite blogs together soon for awards. (-:

Leave it to Kat to find the more interesting awards. Congratulations!


Vivian Zabel said...

Ron, I'm not sure where Kat came into this honor. I passed it on to her, not the other way around.

I didn't "find" the award, either, Holly passed it to me when someone else passed it to her.

Anyway you look at it, though, this award is unusual and fun.

Karen and Robyn - Writing for Children said...

Thanks so much, Vivian, for including me.

This is my second award, I am honored.
