Wow! Coming from someone whose work I truly respect and admire, this prestigious award is really a big thing for me. I've seen this at other people's blogs and I keep wondering if I'll ever get one...hihi. Wooohooo, finally it's here!
Liza, I just want you to know that you are an inspiration to this blog newbie, your presence in the blogosphere is strongly felt because of your warmth and kindness. Thank you my dear, your friendship is a blessing!
Now, here are the rules and regulations, as well as my nominees for the next five deserving winners of the Arte y Pico Award:
1) Pick five (5) blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award (http://arteypico.blogspot.com).
Mama Mia! Arte y Pico es un blog espanol! No comprendo, no hablo espanol! Took Spanish classes as an elective when I was in High School, but the spanish vocabulary I learned was quickly zapped from my memory as soon as the next summer school break came, hahaha! Well, I do remember a few phrases, and besides, some Pilipino words were taken after Spanish words. Soon afterwards, Spanish classes were abolished from the curriculum...que horror, que barbaridad!!! Anyways, muchas gracias to the people who have conceptualized Arte Y Pico.
Ok, now let's get on with the awards at hand... I really want to pass this to every blogger I know as I believe that much creativity, drive and passion goes into creating a cyberhome we call "blog". However, since I am required to abide by the 5-awardee rule, after 500 hours of serious contemplation (just kidding!), I am giving this prestigious award to the following amazing bloggers:
