Pulsar Award: Amy Lilley


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 person. In the blogosphere, people like that are harder to find because your interactions with him or her are usually completely online. Online it's even harder to be warm and friendly and to make a lasting impression. But that's not the case for Amy Lilley of Amy Lilley Designs. From the day we first exchanged comments and emails she's been warm, friendly, caring and the kind of person just in general that this world needs more of.

Every day we hear about so much negativity in the world, in our nation, in our neighborhoods. Negativity is amplified on the internet as news instantly travels the globe. That being said, it's so important to find the beauty and the brightness and the lights of hope that are out there.

A pulsar is a brilliant flashing star in the sky. The Pulsar Award honors those who add a bit of brightness to 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.

Thank you, Amy, for being a pulsar!

Thanks for reading.

Congratulations Amy, that is such an honor. If I am allowed to recommend, then I would recommend someone who is just around the corner, someone who gave laughter and sunshine into our lives, someone who looks for the positive in any situation and focus on this in his stories. I think you know, who I am talking about.

Kudos to you too Matt for being generous.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! Amy's reaction and the reaction of other bloggers like her is why I created the Pulsar Award. Lots of positive energy to spread around the blogosphere makes the world better, one blogger or person at a time.
