Sunshine Award

Renee of Rochester Daily Photo sent the Sunshine Award to Hyde Daily Photo.

As I said in a post on my personal blog in February 2008
I have something of an ambivalent attitude towards memes and awards in blogland.

They seem to come along in droves at times and like pyramid selling and chain letters perpetuate themselves by encouraging recipients to pass them on to several others.
Nonetheless it is nice to get a little award from time to time and provided it is well meant and sent with some thought, then it would seem churlish not to accept. I've decided to place the details here and will mention it on HDP tomorrow.

The rules for accepting this award are
  • Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
  • Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
  • Link the nominees within your post.
  • Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
  • Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award..
I wish to make it clear that so far as I am concerned, the rules (in particular the passing-on rule) are optional.

The twelve blogs I've chosen to pass the award on to are ones that I enjoy visiting but perhaps pass under the radar of some of my regular readers. They are:I recommend my regulars to give them a visit.


  1. Congratulations Gerald, your Hyde blog is wonderful, and thanks so much for passing this award at us.You are very gentle!
    Léia :)

  2. How very kind of you, Gerald. Thank you.

  3. Thanks very much for the award- I've been a very bad blogger lately and haven't written anything to deserve it!

    Well thank you, Gerald. I've never been given an award before -- and a Sunshine Award has a pleasant air to it. But I think we should start a new trend --Awards, Just Because... --no strings attached. There are some people who don't want awards, probably because they get so many. In addition, to find 12 others and link would take me half a day since I'm not too savvy with computers. Then again to only give 12 might leave some of my friend bloggers feeling a little left out. Oh well...I always tend to over-think things. But I do appreciate your kind thoughts.
