The next thing is the "pay it forward" part of the award.
"The following rules came with this prize: These blogs are exceedingly charming.These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
This part is hard for me. Actually, it's beyond my capacity. There are many many people that I see that I could pass this award on to. As the kid who was always picked last for the kickball team, I cannot make the kind of distinctions necessary for passing out awards. ;) I hope you understand and can forgive me.
On the other hand, I certainly wanted to acknowledge receiving this award and show my gratitude. Thanks Thom! :)
