This Blog Invests in the Riches of Proximity

The wonderful tagmaker extraordinaire Steph of Sunshine and Ravioli was kind enough to award me this Proximidade award. You've simply got to go visit her, if you haven't already, and check out her gorgeous blog.

I copy/pasted this explanation from it:

This blog invests in the riches of proximity! (rough translation). Proximidade, translated from Portuguese to English, means vicinity or neighborhood.

This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. (blogging makes us close by proxy; friendly neighborhoods linked around the world). Blogs that receive this award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. (effort is made to maintain a quality blog in terms of blog etiquette, response, and audience - just because) *Note to reader: It does not escape my attention that the mere posting of the award is, in itself, a small measure of self-aggrandizement. I never said I was perfect ;-).

Our hope is that when the ribbons of these awards are cut, even more friendships are propagated. (post the award, and grow more friendship by passing it on) Please give more attention to these writers! (be an active friend of their neighborhoods) Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award. "Following are my eight blog choices (though there are many more that are also deserving), in no particular order (seriously random as they came up on the blogroll by update status), that consistently embody the spirit of kindness, friendship, neighborhood, and warmth for which this award is given:

1. The Vintage Moth
2."I Can Make That" Made By Laura
3. It's A Miniature Life
4. NJD Miniatures
4. Middle of Nowhere
5. Tiny Treasures
6. Four Dog Day
7. Angela Michelle Dolls
8. Sugarskull7's Artblog

Please go visit these lovely bloggers if you get a chance and say "Hi!"
