Thoughtful Blogger Award

AJ, over at Over Analyze It shared this award with the Electronic Village last year. She said that we "...have made it a point to respond to comments posted on their blogs and are tolerant of those with dissenting positions (most of the time... lol). I think they all rock!"

It’s called the Thoughtful Blogger Award, and it was originally created by Christy (Writer’s Reviews). The award is for those

"who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others."
It is in that spirit that I share The Thoughtful Blogger Award with:

  1. African American Political Pundit - First, this ol' school brother has been a powerful voice for Black people during this long election cycle. However, this award is given to him for his leadership within The AfroSpear. Many of us appreciate his willingness to step up in our time of need.
  2. Mrs. Grapevine - This sister did a very thoughtful thing when she co-founded a weekly meme called Ol' School Friday. That meme has brought together an inter-generational crew of bloggers to share some wonderful memories of music with each other and our blog readers.
  3. Springer's Journal - Christina is a colleague from The AfroSpear. However, this award is being given to her for her simple mantra, ' Click. Give. Feel Good.' She saw an idea and used her imagination to take it to the next level. My hope is that many villagers will join her cause and participate with Black Bloggers for Education initiative.
  4. Urban Scientist - This blogger is dedicated to getting more people of color engaged in issues of science and technology. Urban created a meme to identify Hispanic scientists and pointed out a project that allows us to donate funds to poverty-stricken classrooms around the country ... eventually, this led to creation of Black Bloggers for Education initiative.
I hope that these brothers and sisters accept this award in the spirit of Umoja with which they are given.
