'E' for Excellence Award


We are honored to receive the 'E' For Excellence award from Maryannville. Maryannville is a popular blog created by Mary Ann. Mary Ann traveled from border-to-border and coast-to-coast before settling in a town with zip code 'E-I-E-I-O'. I met Mary Ann during the Blogging-To-Fame contest last year. She is a powerhouse blogger. As such, it means alot when she shares this award with us.

The rules state that after receiving the Excellent Blog Award, you must pass it on to 10 more excellent bloggers. Here are the ten bloggers that I would like to share this award with today:

Congratulations to each of 'em for doing what they do! I hope that all villagers will take a moment to visit these ten Excellent Bloggers.

Wow. I am truly honored. Coming from a paragon of black blogging excellence like yourself I take that as high praise. I was blown away with your Darfur solidarity effort. 12 high quality posts in a day. You are blazing a trail Villager and I appreciate the appreciation.

Aaron - I don't always agree with your politics ... but, I am truly pleased to see a brother come correct with his analysis of the situation in our African American community and more broadly throughout the diaspora. I enjoyed working with you on the past two campaigns (Darfur and Dunbar Village). I look forward to reading your posts for many moons to come...

Wayne, thank you very much for the honor. I have learned so much from you and your prolific blog. It is great to be a part of such a wonderful organization as the AfroSpear and I am impressed with your commitment for the situation in Darfur, missing black children and the plight of people of African descent, in general. Thank you for teaching us the importance of being each other's champion. You are, by far, a hero in my book! Thanks for the award. It is greatly and deeply appreciated. As we say in Jamaica, 'nuff respects!

Sorry for my delayed response, but thank you so very, very much for this. I get things here and there, but it means so much when it comes from an intelligent mind that you admire and respect, the way I do you.

It always bowls me over when I see myself placed on a list of intellectuals, but I must confess, I love it! :-) Thanks again...I will put this on my blog tomorrow in a post.

Villager said...

Invisible Woman - You bring a very unique voice to the blogging diaspora. I truly enjoy and learn from your blog every day. You can help me with one thing though ... not the phuquery definition this time ... what is the genesis of your Terrence Howard rants? How did that begin?

peace, Villager

Thanks Villager, those are some excellent bloggers to be included with.

It's been good working with you over the past year; you're definitely a leader out her in the Afrosphere.

Villager said...

Yobachi - You've earned the honor with your online activism. I hope that it brings more eyeballs to your blog...
