Awards Time

It’s always nice when someone passes along an award. Sometimes these things have a whole raft of conditions attached which can be enormously time-consuming though. As such, it’s quite relaxing to get one which is relatively simple to accept and pass on. And that’s the characteristics of the award sent my way by blogger vinnieh today.

This one simply involves displaying the award logo (check), linking back to whoever gave it to you (check), nominating ten others to receive it (see below), and letting those ten know (OK, OK, just gimme a minute!) – and that’s it. Simple.

I’m not sure, but I think the award, mainly due to its name, is supposed to go to WordPress powered blogs. That gave me pause, there are plenty of worthy blogs out there – many I respect and like to visit – that operate on other platforms. On this occasion I’ve left out such sites and concentrated on WordPress ones. Maybe that’s not the correct reading of the award, but it’s the way I’ve chosen to interpret it. Anyway, having got that rationale out of the way, here are my ten worthy nominees:

Twenty Four Frames

Tipping My Fedora

It Rains…You Get Wet

Vienna’s Classic Hollywood

Speakeasy

Movie Classics

Lasso the Movies

Only Detect

In Search of the Classic Mystery Novel

  1. Well deserved,Colin. And thank you for the nomination.
    I started with Word Press nearly a year ago and think they do a great job for us bloggers.

  2. My thanks also Colin. This is the first time I have seen this award and I am thrilled and elated to be among your other recipients. Thanks again.

  3. Congrats, well deserved for you, and thanks so much for passing it on to me. Since you’ve been one of my blog’s earliest and most welcome supporters it’s extra special coming from you. 🙂

  4. Congratulations, Colin! A well-deserved award, indeed. You and Sergio do an excellent job of reviewing films that most often I have never seen and with your comments and counter-comments, it’s a complete package — educating and entertaining! Hope to visit more often.

    • Thanks so much for that Prashant. I’ll just repeat that the fact I was limited to WP blogs meant that I had to omit too many other worthy nominees such as yourself. Also, it’s the feedback from all the readers that makes the running of this thing such a rewarding experience.

      • No sweat, Colin, and thanks for the kind words. I think these awards should be considered objectively and should be given on merit, to blogs that one really enjoys visiting and reading and learning from. One can and should be biased in these things. If not, awards, blog or any other, would lose their relevance. I’d hate to give away blog awards for there would be just too many to choose from.

        • Absolutely. I like the idea of these things, but only so long as we’re passing them on to people whose work we genuinely appreciate. It is a bit frustrating having to restrict oneself to only one platform though.
