Pulsar Award


Every once in a while you come across an individual who is friendly, kind, supportive, witty, intelligent, humorous...pretty much just an all-around great guy. Well this past week, I came across a blogger that fits this bill. His name is Oyvind, and he writes the Øblog, and he's from Norway and he happened to enter a quick contest I held on a Blog Promotion Site called Entrecard. It's kind of funny how you meet other people sometimes.

We live in difficult times. The world economy is tanking. Countries are at war. Human rights are being violated, and George Bush is still president of the United States. Okay, that was a cheap shot, but it's true. In times like these we need to find the beauty and the brightness and the lights of hope that are out there.

It didn't take much finding Oyvind. Just a few lines of repartee. But he brightened my day enough where I decided to create a new blogroll. I'm calling it Pulsar Honorees. It's intended to honor those who add a bit of brightness to your life. If bloggers everywhere can find pulsars, other beacons of hope and friendship and display them on their blogs, then we all can make this world a better place together.

There are beacons of light out there to guide us in the darkness. Pulsar Honorees are one more beacon of light.

Oyvind, you are the very first Pulsar. Congratulations!

Thanks for reading.

This is a great idea! I have come across a few people that have brightened my day and I always seem to meet them at the right time. This is a good way to express your appreciation for their kindness and friendship.

What a wonderful thing to come up with. And what a wonderful post.

You are right about the hard times and everything being in such turmoil.

Yet many of us who blog on the lighter side often are criticized instead of recognized.

We too worry but choose to try to take people away from their worries if only for a wee minute.

You yourself do that for me when I visit here.

I may not always comment but I do so enjoy viewing your ventures and reading your post.

I think this is simply marvelous.

Congrats to you for thinking of it.


Warning I am a heavy download. I am awaiting my new design right now. I hope to have a complete redo by the end of the month.

I hope you have a sensational week!!

As Carol said that pulsar thingie is *really* cool. And that's good 'cos Øyvind is really cool too. He and I had a blast battling it out over at Ohio Realtor's big quiz a while back and his natural good humour and gentle manliness shone through in every exchange.

The only down side with him is that I can't find that damned 'Ø' on my keyboard so I have to cut-and-paste it from somewhere every time I mention his name...

... it's a small gripe really. :)

Nicely done dude.
