Over the past few weeks I have been lucky enough to receive a few of these online awards that are doing the rounds. I always take them in the way I think they are intended, and that way being from one blogger to another who likes or appreciates your work. I know some people dismiss them, and that’s cool, to each their own, but I feel that the person choosing me and my site at the very least deserves a public thankyou!
As I seem to have collected a few of these in the months I have been writing, I decided to create a page dedicated to the awards received. Not just as a place I can go to and admire how great I am, but more importantly it will be a permanent link to all the people and sites that have chosen me. So if you have ever nominated me, or would like to in the future (why wouldn’t you?!) your name and details will be forever listed on THIS PAGE (or hit up the ‘awards‘ tab in the header menu). It’s not much, but just my little way of thanking those who have thought of my humble site.
Enough chat now, and here are the people and sites who have recently chosen Headinavice.com for some more awards -
Super Sweet Award
Teepee12 from Serendipity - November 14th 2012
Very Inspiring Blog Award
Nominated by :
Matthew D. Ryan from A Toast To Dragons November 26th 2012
Teepee12 from Serendipity December 6th 2012
Mike from MikesFilmTalk December 6th 2012
John from Written In Blood December 7th 2012
Blog Of The Year Award
Nominated by :
Brad from You Jivin Me Turkey? December 10th 2012
To these amazing people, thank you so much!! I genuinely appreciate it and am honoured you thought of me.
Now, these awards come with some degree of ‘work‘ which is why some people decide not to do much with them. However, I’m going to cheat a little. The main rules are thanking those who nominate you, and linking back to their sites. Well, I have done this, both on this page and immortalised them forever on my AWARDS PAGE, so please go check out their terrific sites.
Next I have to nominate some more people to receive this award. I always find this hard, as I don’t want to bother people, and some have just received these awards. However, since I don’t want people to think I’m ungrateful and never give anything back, I’m going to nominate a few people. If I was to follow the rules exactly I would have to nominate about 50 blogs, but that would take forever, so I won’t be doing that don’t worry. The risk here is missing people out, which is always going to happen as I follow so many brilliant blogs, so I have bent the rules and nominated the following people who have all wrote articles for my site. More specifically, all my Guest Contributors who have submitting reviews for my IMDB Top 250 Project. Bit of a cop-out, but I can’t thank them enough for giving up their time to write reviews for me, and this is a tiny bit more of gratitude for them from me.
I don’t mind if you guys and girls I selected decide to do nothing with this award, but hey, just remember this is me being nice, so please continue to send me your reviews! I’m nominating you all for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, and if you choose to accept and post about it, the full rules are linking back to the person who nominated you, choose some blogs to pass it on to, and share 7 random facts about yourself (which I am skipping since I did this recently and am not very interesting to have more random things!).
Here are the recipients of the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from me:
Sir Phobos - greenpeoplesoup.blogspot.com
Tom Gooderson-A’Court - At The Back
Mark Walker - Marked Movies
Thomas Priday - Ontopic Reviews
Vincent Wolfram - The Abyssal Vault
Eric - Isaacs Picture Conclusions
Mithil - MindBugged
Fernando Rafael - Committed to Celluloid
Daniel Prinn - Daniel’s Film Reviews
Claratsi - ClaratsiMovieBlog
Natalie Stendall - Natalie Stendall
Nick - Another Plot Device
Drew Pan - Drew’s Soapbox
Ewan - dustforprints
Chris - Terry Malloy’s Pigeon Coop
Mr Rumsey - Mr Rumsey’s Film Related Musings
Monica - Munky See Munky Do
John Lincoln - JohnLinkMovies
Shah Shahid - Blank Page Beatdown
Misty Layne – Cinema Schminema
Jessica – Gorror
Apologies for those I didn’t mention. I felt the guest contributors route was a fair way, as there are so many of you who ‘like‘ and comment on all my posts, re-tweet me on twitter and are just all round awesome people. But trying to single some out is unfair and impossible, so at least this way I can cop-out and say the contributors have gone out of their way to write for me, therefore ‘inspiring me‘ to continue the IMDB project!
I also want to do a special mention and pass on the Blog of the Year award to the 3 people who have just and continue to pass awards on to me. I always feel bad since they pass the awards to me, and I can’t send them one back, but this time I believe I can get in there first with this award, since it was kindly passed to me by Brad.
John, Marilyn & Mike, thank you for all the awards and praise you send my way, so you are the 3 people I am passing on the Blog of the Year Award to:
Teepee12 from Serendipity
Mike from MikesFilmTalk
John from Written In Blood
I have let all these people know, and here endeth this huge post. Nearly. Just a quick final thanks to Marilyn, Matthew, John, Mike & Brad for choosing my site, I am honoured. To those I picked and passed the award on to, please don’t feel obliged to do anything. Just your thanks, some more reviews and a bit of money will suffice! To those sites I missed, I apologise, but I still read everything that my community writes both on here and your own sites, and if you want to join the party and submit some reviews so I give you an award next time just get in touch. Although, if there is a next time maybe I’ll hit up all those who have joined my Desert Island project. Until next time folks, thanks for reading.
