This is the Dardos Award:
The Premier Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical,
literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original
writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting
fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for
work that adds value to the Web.
- Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
- Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgement, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.
Gotham City Soul is chosen because she's a good friend, a good writer and editor and always has interesting and worthwhile material, usually about New York City and / or history, beautifully organized. She also illustrates her blog pertinently.
The Angry Black Woman provides a space for the thankless task of attempting to help the clueless understand what racism is like from the perspective of one who lives with it every day, and yet is not bitter nor a hater, just, sometimes, very tired.
Asking the Wrong Questions is written by a well-traveled Israeli, with an excellent critical mind that she applies to media and print genre.
Caterpillars to Butterflies is written with passion, compassion, generosity and wisdom about performing some of the most exhausting work in the world, helping those who are at the extremity where they cannot help themselves.
Dakota Women is an aggregator blog of news and issues concerning women, and women of the Great Plains in particular. The Dakotas aren't thought about very often, and the women who live there aren't among the trendy groups that people on the Coasts often like to be involved with, to 'help.' But they are the women from whom I spring, and I admire them, and their capacities, immensely.
Hmmm. It seems I've chosen all women!
