ABC Award

I never expected what started as a blog for my residential community (sharing insight and images of our osprey pair and other waterfowl that visit our ‘backyard’) would some day be viewed by others in the United States, let alone the world!  I am amazed and humbled.  Those of you that follow me, and those of you I follow, inspire me to want to do my best always in my photo captures and presentation to you.

Recently, I received a nomination for the ABC Award from my good blog friend, Max Reynolds.  The ABC Award stands for Awesome Blog Content.  Wow, mine??  Max, I am very honored and tickled that you considered nominating me, a big THANK YOU!  To those of you that don’t know Max, please give him a visit, his motto, “Celebrate the sunrise, Toast the sunset, and Enjoy everything inbetween” is clearly what his blog is all about.  Stop by and enjoy California and more, MaxStyle!

Now on to the rules to accept this nomination.

#2 – Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award

I have many blog sites I enjoy.  Since I gave recognition to seven other sites a few weeks ago for another award, I wanted to nominate new ones to ‘spread the wealth’ as they say!  It is indeed hard to select just 10 more that haven’t already received this award.  So here’s my 10, in no special order.  Give each of them a visit, I believe you will enjoy them too!

1.     Nature Just Outside My Door

2.    MDPhotographers

3.    A Chesapeake Journal

4.    Photo Nature Blog

5.    Elev. 401

6.     Trek Ohio

7.     Avian 101

8.     Take A Hike Tony

9.     Montana Outdoors

10.   Finding Subjects

Again, many thanks to Max for the nomination!   And thank you to everyone who stopped by, I appreciate each one of you.   Have a great weekend!

    As the originator of this award you may be interested to know that I have now set up a Facebook group for all bloggers who have been given the ABC Award – a place for you to meet new bloggers, and share and support each other. You can join the group here:
    Please also let any other bloggers, that you know have been given the award, know about this group too – then we can all ‘spread the word’
    I have also set up a Facebook page – the ABC Award – where you can now add links to all of your blog posts and writing – share your work with a new audience, gain new readers, and find out what other ABC Award bloggers are writing about.
    You can find the page here:
    Just ‘like’ the page and get started – and do let all your blog readers know about this page – I believe that all of our blogs can only be improved by letting our readers know about other blogs – that way you will also have new readers discover you too!
    Happy blogging – and congratulations again on the ABC Award – you’re awesome!
