The Premios Dardo Award




Many thanks to http://www.thewritertoday.com/ who sent me the Premios Dardo (Top Dart) Award on Friday: "this award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values everyday."

I feel truly honored for several reasons. First, The Writer Today is a fantastic blog, one of my favorites and full of great information. I recommend it to any writer at any stage of his or her career, so please go visit and have a great time.

My second reason is that I still feel so new to blogging. For a long time I resisted even having a blog. I was worried I wouldn't know what to write or be able to maintain it very well. Now, I can't imagine not having my blog. I appreciate so much my readers, their comments both on and off site, and the opportunity to share my thoughts and writing.

Lastly, the award is just plain fun. And as I've always said in my writing classes (and to continue the theme of my last blog post), if you're not having fun with you're writing--something is wrong!

Starting today and over the next few weeks, I will be passing the award along to 15 other blogs that have inspired me.

Rules for the Premios Dardo Award
1. Accept and post the award on your blog.
2. Link to the person from whom you received it.
3. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment.
4. Let them know they've been chosen for this award.
