Recognition is always nice . . .

I have just had the honour of being recommended for the 2012 Blogger of the Year award by not one, but two of my favourite blog heroes. This is a great honour since I consider these two bloggers to be among the very best.  My thanks to David Kanigan at Lead.Learn.Live and Mimi at Waiting for the Karma Truck.  Take my suggestion and sign up for their blogs.  They will brighten your day, every day!

So now I have 2 stars of recognition.  If I ever get as good as David or Mimi I will climb up towards the full 6 stars!  More work ahead.

As is the custom with these awards, it’s about passing on the recognition, so now it’s my turn. So without further comment, I nominate the following people for this award.

Another Lovely Day Something wonderful is about to happen . . . from Sandy

A Sense of Place  About the Central Coast of California and the town of Arroyo Grande, where I went to high school.

Malcolm’s Corner  Financial, economic and wealth related issues in the broadest sense of the word, by Malcolm Greenhill.

doakonsult  Consulting.Philosophy.Travel by Raunak Mahajan.  The best collection of business and spiritual blogging on the web.

Ladies Fishing Club in the North East UK  Take a look at what you can learn if let yourself.  Great spirit and great fishing by Annie.

Endgame of Business  The wisdom of Steve Borek

That’s all for now, but not all.  I will be nominating others as time goes on.

And to all who follow my “rethinking” about business, life, parenting and flyfishing, a great big THANK YOU!

(And of course a small plug for my four thriller novels on Amazon.Kindle:  Great for holiday reading)
