The Dandelion Award

The contribution of the Liberated Way to acknowledge blogging excellence on WordPress.

Liberated Way thanks all those who nominated it for blogging awards; in return the Dandelion Award was created to acknowledge those blogs which in the opinion of this writer deserves recognition.

The Dandelion Award comes with no conditions, thus the awarded blog can display the image if they wish to do so, but has to do nothing else.

The Liberated Way will award one blog each Sunday the Dandelion Award, where it will write a review about the blog with the reasons for the award.  There will be a page created listing all the Dandelion Award winners, with a link and description of their blog.

The image above is one of my photos of a dandelion in Abbey Fields, Colchester near the Roman Circus (think Ben-Hur). The dandelion means “lions tooth”, is a colourful yellow flower that comes out in spring.  Honey bees love dandelions, which they flock to in spring for the nectar.  When pollinated the dandelion produces seeds that many children have enjoyed blowing onto the wind where they travel over wide areas to seed as new dandelions.

The following is the criteria I am looking for in a blog to win the Dandelion Award:

  1. The blog is full of practical wisdom that can be used in life by the reader.
  2. The blog is inspirational, that makes me go “wow”.
  3. The blog and its writing is well presented in a creative way.
  4. The blog is updated on a regular basis.
  5. The blog is developing a close relationship with its readers.
