ABC Award

Last month my dear friend Paul, from Sons of thunder patron, rewarded me with the ABC award.  Paul is a wonderful writer and poet; but most importantly, his posts are filled with solace and spirituality, two things very needed nowadays.

So, thanks Paul not only for this award, but also for being there, bringing a ray of hope, reviving our faith and putting a smile in our faces. This award was created by Alyson and David Sheldrake over at The thought palette, so thanks to them, as well, for creating it.

To ‘accept’ the award you just add the abc award logo to your and then you can share something about yourself with your readers and then pass the award on to other worthy bloggers – there’s no limit to how few – or how many – other bloggers you can send this to.

To share something about yourself – you will need to go through the alphabet and choose a word or phrase for each letter and use that to describe yourself – it might be something about you, something you like, or a place or thing you dream about. And that’s all – no long descriptions or detail – just create a new post, add your shiny new blog award badge and alphabet words and let your readers enjoy finding out a little more about you.

So, first, here’s my ABC list. But because my mother tongue is Spanish I’m going to do it in this language and add the translation, Ok?

Amigos ———— Friends

Báscula ———– Scales

Callada ———— Quiet

Dios ————— God

Esfuerzo ———- Endeavour


Gastronomía —– Gastronomy

Lagrimas ——— Tears

Navidad ———- Christmas

Ñata ————– Flat-nosed

Silencio ———– Silence

Timidez ———- Shyness

Utópico  ———- Utopian

Valentía ———- Courage

Whisky ———– Whiskey

X anti xenophobia ——– Anti xenophobia

Yantar ————- To eat

Zapping ———– Zapping

I will love to elaborate and explain why I chose some of these words, but it may be better to keep a little bit of mystery…

Now is the time to pass this award to some of my favorite bloggers. Some have already received it, so no need to answer again (unless you feel like it), but I leave your name here just so everybody can go and read some Awesome Blog content.

  6. Congratulations on your ABC Award!
    As the originator of this award you may be interested to know that I have now set up a Facebook group for all bloggers who have been given the ABC Award – a place for you to meet new bloggers, and share and support each other. You can join the group here:
    Please also let any other bloggers, that you know have been given the award, know about this group too – then we can all ‘spread the word’
    I have also set up a Facebook page – the ABC Award – where you can now add links to all of your blog posts and writing – share your work with a new audience, gain new readers, and find out what other ABC Award bloggers are writing about.
    You can find the page here:
    Just ‘like’ the page and get started – and do let all your blog readers know about this page – I believe that all of our blogs can only be improved by letting our readers know about other blogs – that way you will also have new readers discover you too!
    Happy blogging – and congratulations again on the ABC Award – you’re awesome!
