The SPLASH Awards

The Splash Award
The Splash Award

The Anxious Black Woman has given me a Splash Award. I am honored to be included among the illustrious and fascinating blogs she lists! The Splash award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs. When you receive this award, you get to:

1. Put the logo on your blog/post.
2.  Nominate up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.
3.  Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4.  Let them know that they have been splashed by commenting on their blog.
5.  Remember to link to the person from whom you received your Splash award.

I am trying to give this award (mostly) to blogs to which I have not given (too many) awards before. I am focusing on content, style, and design. I am choosing blogs that are like finished art objects. I have nothing against using blogs for notes and drafts, I do it myself, but these are the Splash Awards.

Anxious Black Woman — right back at you.
Citizen Orange
— admire the content and writing, but also Nezua’s unfailing design work.
Distraction No. 99
— a good writing blog, new to me.
Guyana Gyal
— stories in beautiful Caribbean English.
House of Nezua
— design and poetry.
Lotus Notebooks
— elegance.
Ojo al Texto — Spanish + Norwegian + digital worlds + … go read it.
San Francisco Civic Center — the most perceptive photographs and commentary.
Unsane and Safe
— seriously crafted.

As always, realize that I create these awards lists very quickly. If not, I would agonize forever. These are not the only blogs worthy of Splash Awards, so if you would like one and do not have one, take one: there is in a way a free space in my list, since the ABW has already received the Splash.

Axé.

  1. OK, I’ve sent everyone listed a comment notifying them of the prize, except that I don’t think the comment “took” on Lotus Notebooks. I tried with two different IDs, though!

  2. awesome! thank you. if i did these award memes more, id def give you one at least along the way. your writing has always felt honest, strong, and instructive without trying to lecture.

  3. Thanks profacero! Nezua should get two splash awards for the shout out for his CO design, lol. I only wish that I had time to write more these days. Then I would feel like I really deserved it.

  4. Dear Professor Zero: Thank you so much for such a lovely gesture. I’m afraid to pass it on, though, because I’m sure there would be a few people who’d be pissed off they weren’t one of the nine, which is also why I don’t have a blogroll.

    So instead, I’d just like to say you’ve been bookmarked. Look forward to reading you and will be linking to you individually when it’s appropriate for “Civic Center.”

  5. Zero, to hell with the fact you have already received the award. We were to “nominate blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire.” Yours does all of the above.

  6. Gracias NR and Nezua … maybe I’ll get around to doing a second post, including the people excluded from this one … Hi Mike! … Gracias Nez … it’s for lifetime achievement, you know, kyledeb! 🙂

  7. A very late thanks for the award to you Professor Zero. It is always nice to return to your writings. And thanks a lot for the tip on Renato Ortiz, writings.

  8. I feel honoured…pleased as Punch…to receive this, and well flattered too!

    Thank you mucho, Profacero.

    I will post it soon, on my blog.

    [If only I can stop sneezing, allergies have me going crazy….].
