Not true, for today at least. Rose City Reader has favored us with the Premios Dardo Award. She was also kind enough to explain in her presentation post what this is a picture of. I confess I didn't quite get it. What are those letters and words going into/coming out of? Ancient camera? Toy cannon? Post-modern tea kettle? Ah, a typewriter in profile, and apparently missing its side panel, too.
Anyway, back to the point: we are walking around lucky! Plus, I was inspired by the need to pass this award on and have now learned how to make links in a post. Desperation is a powerful motivator, indeed.
And so, without further ado . . . . The Premios Dardo Award "acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day."
The rules to follow are:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted the award and his or her blog link; and
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment.
(Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.)
Now, let me say at this point that as a rule I do not participate in chain letters and think most e-mail "forwards" are a total waste of time. Yes, I'm kind of a crank about that stuff. Given these tendencies, I feel a bit guilty (not to mention hypocritical) about passing on to 15 other bloggers what I suspect is the internet version of the chain letter.
On the other hand, isn't it nice to be recognized? Please take it as a compliment! Scads of lurkers are coming your way because your blogs are wonderful!
