Noblesse Oblige Award

Well, it seems that I'm "it" (tagged) again and this time, I would like to send out a "thank you" and appreciation to CareyCarey over at Carry Me Home for naming me (my blog) as one of his recipients of the Noblesse Oblige Award.

Award Criteria:

1. The blogger manifests exemplary attitude, respecting the nuances that pervades amongst different cultures and beliefs.

2. The blog contents inspire; strives to encourage and offers solutions.

3. There is a clear purpose at the blog; one that fosters a better understanding on social, political, economic, the arts, culture and Sciences, and beliefs.

4. The blog is refreshing and creative.

5. The blogger promotes friendship and positive thinking.


1. Create a post with a mention and link to the person who presented the Noblesse Oblige Award.

2. The award conditions must be displayed in the post.

3. Write a short article about what the blog has achieved - preferably, citing one or more older posts as support.

4. The blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the award conditions.

5. The blogger must display the award at any location on the blog.

My Blog Achievements:

I didn't set out to be a crusader or an activist of any sort, but I was most proud of some of the posts I wrote near the election of President Obama...I was most proud that this blog has opened people's minds and made people think about important issues. I have even angered a few people, which is okay, because that means that at least they have been made to think. If I brightened someone's day or made them think in a way that they might not have thought before, then my job was done.

My Recipients:

I only have three recipients for this award and they are as follows:

1. Rippa (The Intersection Of Madness And Reality)

Honestly, this is one of the funniest and thought provoking blogs out there. Whenever I'm taking myself too seriously or feeling down in the dumps, I need do no more than go over to Big Rippa's blog for a good rib-hurting and belly-aching laugh and some thought provoking insight. I love this brother and his blog. Check out Big Rippa.

2. Clnmike (The Happy Go Lucky Bachelor)

The title of this blog first got my attention... then, the contents just blew me away. Funky rock music and just like Rippa, thought provoking and often humorous commentary. If you haven't checked out it's author Clnmike (and you must have because he comments on just about errbody's blog) then by all means, do so.

3. Keith (Escapades)

Yeah, I know it's my other blog but it is, in my humble opinion, the most original and one-of-a-kind blog out there. I don't know of any other that is a combination of so many creative idioms. When I started it, it was envisioned as a poetry blog but soon after, I added short stories and continuing long-form fiction. I also added art by (mostly) African American artists and erotica... thus, this blog became something else altogether. I really enjoy writing it and I wish that more people in addition to my loyal friends (who don't have blogs) would read it.

Have fun! Smile
