My sincere and genuine thanks to SK Sandhu of Exquisite Life for her nomination of A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip for the Solidarity Blogger Award.
Solidarity Blogger Award Nomination
SIWO (Success Inspirers’ World) is an International Friends Blogging Forum. The idea is to encourage team work and to blog together as a community. As an international friends blogging forum, Success Inspirer’s World provides an opportunity that every blogger is looking for – the opportunity to get more exposure and find more followers and readers.
What is solidarity in layman’s terms? Harmony? Unity? A common agreement perhaps? A shared interest between parties? A supporting role with regards others who share the same interests then? Solidarity means different things to different peoples. But what does solidarity mean to me more to the point?
For me personally, it’s a case of standing side by side those to whom l support and believe in what they are doing, and offering help whenever and where ever l can. With regards the connection to blogs, blogging and bloggers then it it is showing a united front in what we do, what we believe in and the message we are trying to convey to others. Be this in writing, reading or creativity or what l prefer to simply call … expression. I believe in what we do here in WordPress, we support each other as a community, we encourage, motivate and inspire others to encourage and motivate and inspire and as such we promote a solid front of unity otherwise known as … we display solidarity for the principles in which we believe in and hold close to our hearts.
There is a much simpler word all said and done – Family.
Perhaps someone else might hold a difference of opinion to mine, but l think however they choose to answer, they will come back to the same core principles – community, support and community.
1. Write a post on your blog thanking the person who nominated you.
2. Paste the award in the post.
3. Provide a link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
4. Tell Success Inspirers’ World, SIWO what you think about solidarity blogging. Is it worthwhile?
5. Nominate 10 bloggers for the award and inform them.
I know that some of you will not wish to nominate others with this Award and that is fine, you know me, or you should do by now, to know that l am not going to insist on that.
But l have chosen you all because l believe strongly and with all my heart that you bring some thing worthwhile to the community pool on a regular day in day out basis. Many other bloggers l know do exactly the same, but those l have selected have something unique about them that is specific to the solidarity clause this Award requests. If l know what it is, recognise and can identify it, then others will do too and will know why l have selected the 11 bloggers in this line up.
