As we wrote last week, the Internet is an awesome place — we make new friends every day, learn about new places without leaving our cosy home and — hard as it is to believe (we’re meezers, after all) — discover an inner humility we never suspected we had, because our online friends are so kind and giving.One of them is Nerissa, a really sweet cat who blogs about life here. We linked to his blog a while back, under “Websites We Recommend” in the column to the right, but imagine our surprise when we got our paws on Decca’s computer today (finally!) and found out he had nominated us for the One Sweet Blog Award!
Thank you, Nerissa — you should see us blushing!
This is a perfect example of what we were trying to say. Do nice things and nice things come back to you. Last month, we learned a word for that from the Dalai Lama’s Cat: karma.
We happily accept your nomination, Nerissa, along with what you call “the strings” that are attached. Our Decca, though, says we should consider those not strings but an opportunity to “pay it forward.”
All we have to do is say “thank you, Nerissa,” (done!), link to your blog (done!) and nominate five other blogs for the award.
And here they are. We hope that, like Nerissa and us, our nominees will consider this a happy occasion and a chance to call attention to some deserving “sweet” bloggers they may enjoy as well. Share the love and pass it along to others!
