Blogging Star Award

Asante sana to Pop Culture Dish, Presented by Malcolm for taking time to award the Electronic Village with the Blogging Star Award. This award was originated by Barb at Skittles' Place. This award is for bloggers who shine their light throughout the Blogoshere. Some do it with humor, others with creativity, and others with their kind and thoughtful natures. We all know more than a few of them so why not give them some recognition?"

In order to spread the love to others that are worthy, I am giving the Blogging Star award to the following bloggers:
  • Field Negro - This blog recently won 2007 Black Weblog award. Field isn't much for these memes and such. However, his AfroSpear blog uses both humor and creativity to make a point. He is a daily read for me. I share this award in the hopes it will drive more traffic to this worthy blog.
  • Eddie Griffin (BASG) - This AfroSpear blog is focused on supporting those that want to make a difference for Black boys in the educational and judicial systems of our country. Bro. Griffin's personal history is an inspiration in and of itself. This is a brother experienced in many negative aspects of Black life in America, however, he uses his blog to help and uplift his people. He deserves this informal blogging award.
  • Modern Musings - This blog facilitates grassroots intelligence gathering, works toward a better world through information and action, and remembers to lighten up and have fun. Danielle was the first blogger to notice that the existence of the Electronic Village. Her willingness to share blogging insights and encouragement to me in the early weeks of my blogging career were invaluable. I'm pleased to be able to present her with this award.
  • Black Threads - This blog has a unique niche. Sis. Kyra shines the light on Black quilters all around the world. In addition, it was Kyra that told me about blogging in the first place. She informed me about Blogger and I started my blog that same day. I am glad to provide her blog with this recognition.
  • It's A Blog Eat Blog World - Morgen is the creative genius behind a number of weekly memes that demonstrate both creativity and information. The Electronic Village regularly participates in Manic Monday and Wordless Wednesday. Morgen is an experience blogger who shines his light widely. As such, it is with honor that we share this award with him.
All honorees are asked to do the following: (a) Proudly display it on your blog along with a link to who gave it to you; (b) mention that it originated at Skittles' Place so Barb can follow it's journey; and (c) Pass it on to any blogger(s) you think should have it.

Villagers, do you have any thoughts on these five blogs that you care to share with us?

I don't know all the bloggers on your list, though I'm convinced they must have merit if you have chosen them for this honor.

The two I do know are Danielle and Morgen, and I can definitely attest to the fact that they are wonderful.

Well, Mo has my vote. He's awesome and a very good friend as well. Great job here and thanks for letting me know. Have a great day. :)

Janna - I encourage you to check out the other three bloggers on the list. They are each unique and inspirational in their own ways.

Sandee - Do you know it wasn't until the past couple of weeks (when you updated your avatar) that I realized you were a woman. I have no idea why I assumed that you were a man ... but, your humor and good will stands out regardless of gender. Morgen is outstanding. I encourage you to check out the other four bloggers if you have time or inclination.

peace, Villager

Congratulations to the honorees. I've read two of the blogs, excellent. I will be reading the others as well. Thanks for leading me to more wonderful content!

Villager said...

Lynn - Thank you for taking time to share your village voice with us!

peace, Villager

I browse "Black Threads" every now and then. Your sister's site is where I first read about the lawsuits being filed by some of quilters of Gee's Bend.

Villager said...

Lori - Do you quilt? Anyhow, I encourage you to take a peek at the other four award winners if you have time or inclination.

peace, Villager

Villager,
No, I don't quilt. I do love art and all of the various forms of African American creativity (art, music, literature, etc). I also saved a couple of my great-grandmother's quilts from being tossed out.

Villager said...

Lori - Your family is blessed to still have those quilts available for posterity. What a story they could tell if they could talk!

re: African American literature --> anything that you are currently reading?

peace, Villager
