Being given an Award.

I've been given this Neno's Award by Ron Centeno of In My Own Words and Sardonyx of Hula, Scoop, Atbp - Talk about having the same Awards from 2 different people LOL. This may not be an Emmy, Oscar, Grammy, or a Golden Globe Award but I appreciate these two people for appreciating my efforts when it comes to the world of blogging.

Now I have to write why I love blogging. (The award requires it.)

  • I originally created this blog so that I can record all the things in my life. Okay, not all as I choose not to share other personal things, just the surface of the whole thing.
  • Social networking. It's alright if strangers read whatever I have to say. Eventually these strangers become my friends anyway.
  • I can explore the world through other people's blogs. Isn't it amazing to see all the other countries in the world I might not visit someday? Take for example the Friday Town Shootout (Anyone can join, ask me about that if interested). It's amazing to have different themes every week and see the world through other people's lens. Usually only pictures but it is awesome having to surf through Canada, US, Japan, China and other countries out of my reach.. for the meantime.
  • I blog because I want to let out my other emotions. The other emotions goes to the ears of my awesome friends.
  • I can learn loads of things by reading people's blogs. I have a dream to participate in a certain game show LOL that requires brains and show off whatever I have learned through other people's blogs and other mediums. Isn't that awesome or was that just plain nerdy LOL.
  • I'm always interested in what people have to say around the world so I'm always excited to read comments and their opinions. And hey, I'll be a Psychologist someday!
  • Oh and I also blog to improve my writing because I know I'm not the best when it comes to grammar but absolutely conscious when it comes to it. Oh and I'm not a Writer and never will be even if I try hard LOL.
The aims of this award:

  • As a dedication for those who love blogging activity and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
  • To seek the reasons why we all love blogging!
  • Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it
  • Don’t forget to mention the person who gives you the award.
  • Answer the award’s question by writing the reason why you love blogging.
  • Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like.
  • Don’t forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.

I also would like to give an award to these people: (Hope you wouldn't mind!)

I love your post. The blog is a wonderful way to expand your mind and get the real views of people, and not the views the news media would like for us to have.

Being able to travel around and see things through the eyes of people who know their towns and cities is also a great way to learn and meet new friends.

A well deserved award, my friend.

It is Easter here, so I am taking it easy today. Happy Easter!

You're so loyal and honest in your writing and to your friends. I could think of no one who more deserves this award. Your blog is a literal breath of fresh air, innocent and meaningful. Sometimes your posts blow away the cynicism I let collect on my mind.

I enjoy it immensely, keep writing, and kudos.

I wanted to thank you for stopping by and leaving me comments that always make me chuckle! You are such a sweet one. And I would love to be your mom for a day! lol ...really!

I need to tell you that from 1994-1997 I worked for a girl that was about 10 years younger than me. She was originally from the Philippines. She grew up with her grandparents, I think in Manila. Her name is Julianne. I remember her Philippino friends called her GiGi. She took me under her wing, we worked at Dole Foods (you know, the Pineapple people). She was so smart in the computer world... I will never forget her....and I may venture to say that I may never forget you either.....imagine my fortune to have a 17 year old girl from the Philippines following my blog and making me laugh..... I am very touched. :) Thank you.

You're too sweet!

I love this post and I love that I've met you here through blogging. Even tho we are in two complete different niches, I've also enjoyed learning random parts about your life and your country.. and seeing all the pictures!

Its amazing what the internet could do, and especially blogging.

You really deserve that award! I've enjoyed all your posts so far!

Jay said...

"I can explore the world through other people's blogs."

This is exactly why I continue to blog. I didn't really have any plan when I started my blog and had no expectation of meeting new people from different cultures and different areas of the world, but that's exactly what has happened. And that was the most pleasant surprise of all this blogging stuff.

I also enjoy the connecting and interacting with people, which also was a bit of surprise. I've met lots of really cool people in the bloggerhood. ;-)

Midlife, menopause, mistakes and random stuff... said...

Thank you darling are just too sweet. Sending you hugs and kissies from America right this minute........
You will be so happy that you started blogging girl. It's a life record, no? Something that you can show your children one day and be proud of. The fact that you always strive to see life around you and how it affects you and the world is priceless :)
Promise me that you won't stop blogging?
Take good care and.......

Steady On
Reggie Girl

Congrats! Well deserved awards!

shadowmoon said...

Nice award! And from two different people. That means you really deserve it!
Each person have their own reason to blog and their own reason to love it.

And are you going to be a psychologist? Will you graduate on psychology? Or it'll be later?

Oh, and I saw you awarded me too. I'm happy to see that though I don't feel I deserve it.
I also don't know to whom I would award it after so I guess I'll just answer here why I'm blogging and why I love it ok?

shadowmoon said...

The reason is simple, to share my models and to try to show the world a little bit of this nice hobby I discovered that is paper modeling.
Also to vent a little whenever I feel the need...that's why there's the "etc" on the name :)

And why I love blogging?
It's fun to be able to create something by yourself and get some recognition for it. It's also fun to go and find new ideas, new views and new information on the many blogs about many different topics out there in the world.
And it's also fun to meet and keep contact with strangers. It's just like you said, social networking.

Hope that we can keep up blogging for a long time.

Congratulations for the award, thank you for awarding me and sorry for not keeping the award chain.

John said...

Double congratulations on the well deserved award! I can think of know one more deserving of any kind of blogging award than you.

I enjoyed reading your post and it just reinforced my own reasons for blogging. Thank you!

And thank you so much for giving me the award too! Now I just hope I can post something original about why I blog, since we have so many reasons in common!

Hey, I took a break to check email & comments, but I am doing my state income taxes, which must be postmarked by the 15th. I just hope I have all the forms. I must get that done to avoid penalties! Procrastinator, I know, but when you owe the government money, you don't pay them any earlier than you have to LOL.

As soon as I get the tax returns done I promise to follow up on this. Thanks again!

Padfoot and Prongs - Good Books Inc. said...

Thanks girl! You are the best. Padfoot and I def. both appreciate it! We love your blog and will continue to give great bloggers like you the support and credit you deserve! Congrats on your own award and keep rockin on!

Garando said...

Wow, Congrats and thanks for the tag! I totally don't mind doing this as well. I'll put it on my list of meme's to do! ;)

witsandnuts said...

I never thought that blogging is this wonderful. Meeting good people online and sharing information are some of the best things about it.

Faisal Admar said...

thanks half for this beautiful award :) hehe...

so i have to write too to obey the rule? :D


Happy Easter Monday!

I have learnt a lot of thingies via blogging! Thought of moving to youtube when I started Vlogging but it's too crowded in there.

syel said...

Happy Easter! thanks for following my blog! :D you're like reena, a very passionate blogger.

and oh, one thing in common pala, we're both psycho"paths", i mean psychologists pala! hahaha!

HalfCrazy said...

@PATTY - Already Monday night in here as I write this reply. Happy Easter to you anyway! It's really a great thing you and Reggie Girl thought of the Town Shootout thing.

@WRENCH - Ahaha, you flatter me. I make it a point to be always honest, wouldn't gain anything from pretending and lying - really not my thing! I am cynical when it comes to the media: music, movies, books, etc. but not really on stuff around the world, just a little. I try to keep it light.

@JACKC50 - I really should be getting paid for all my blogging hard work, right? LOL. You deserve the Award too Mr. Jack C.

@COTTAGECHARM - Yay now come over here LOL. Glad to know I'm not the first Filipino you have met and trusted! Your words are too sweet, touched me too. Dole Philippines makes the best Pineapple stuff. I always buy their juices and the Pineapple Slices LOL.

@TRINI - Aw, glad that I met you too! Same here, I like learning money making stuff even though I can't benefit much from the offers and stuff because I don't live there. LOL.The internet was invented around 1994. Glad I was 3 years old that time and now it's getting much more awesome!

HalfCrazy said...

@JAY - Yes, exactly! Blogging wouldn't be fun if 1 or 2 people wouldn't read your stuff. It's just amazing having to explore other blogs and know what they have to say. Have the same experience as yours. Here's to happy blogging!

@REGGIE GIRL - Sending you some love from the Philippines right this minute too, ahaha! Exactly Ms. Reggie Girl, I'll show this to my children, tell them how silly I was to do this and think this and that.. would be awesome! Just hope Blogger would still be storing safely our blogs! I think I'm now addicted to blogging and networking, don't know if I can stop!

@SHADOWMOON - Just 2 and a half more years and I'll graduate from BS Psychology, hopefully. I shifted from Computer Science, will start Psychology on April 20. Hey, don't be silly LOL you deserve that award, a token of my appreciation because you always swing by. You're awesome! Great to know the reasons why you're blogging and why you love it. As I said in my post, you really don't have to tag other people or make a post about it. Just receiving it is what I really only ask for! You're awesome, thanks for the visits!

@JOHN - Ha! I think I copied these thoughts from somewhere else too so I'm not so original LOL. I was trying to be original too when I wrote this. But it just can't be avoided LOL. Oh and no problem, just get busy with your financing and stuff, that's the priority LOL.

@PADFOOT AND PRONGS - Thanks, you two rock and I love your blog too! I'm not kidding LOL.

HalfCrazy said...

@GARANDO - Oh, thanks you don't mind, looks like you received other awards too and a little bit of tagging LOL.

@WITSANDNUTS - Yes, and those are just some! This is actually the first thing I check out in the morning instead of taking my breakfast LOL.

@FAISAL - You deserve it Faisal LOL. Nah, like I said in my post, you really don't have to tag some people or write a post about it! Just receiving it would be awesome! Just want you to know that I appreciate you every visit.

@KJ - Happy Easter Monday.. too? LOL. You do some vlogging? Haven't seen videos in your blog! :P

@SYEL - Ah, I know Ate Reena! She's awesome too LOL. It's really cool I get to meet awesome people like her and you too. Yeah, I guess I'm pretty psycho sometimes LOL.

buffalodick said...

Congrats on award! I chose not accept or post awards, to encourage the less talented to keep blogging for themselves, not others..

Linda said...

Congrats on your award and those all look like pretty good reasons to blog to me!

Interesting comment above mine!

Butler and Bagman said...

Thank you so much for not naming me. Having to answer the questions and then pick other people is way too much stress. LOL.

Michael Rivers said...

Congrats on the award! How fun!! I always enjoy reading your blogs!

Mark said...

Congrats on the award!

shadowmoon said...

Ah, so you were in Computer Science.
I almost started doing this degree but, luckily, I couldn't pass the entrance exam. After that I tried Mechanical engineer, got approved but hated it so I left and now I'm studying Economy. I hope to graduate in four years from now.

And if you really think I deserve such award than I guess I'll accept it and you can bet I'll keep visiting your blog for sure. :)
There's something on your blog that attracts me though I'm not completely sure what it is. My guess is that it's probably you :)

And thinking about it, I don't remember how I found your blog :P
This is something only I know and yet my memory is not working...oh well, what really matters is that now I know about your existence and your blog and I can visit it!

HalfCrazy said...

@BUFFALODICK - LOL are you saying I'm one of the less talented? Actually, I am LOL!

@LINDA - Yeah, those are not original reasons either! Everyone seems to have that reason!

@B&B - Tagging is a bit of a burden, right? Ahaha!

@MICHAEL - Thank you! And I always enjoying visiting yours too, as usual!

@MARK - Thanks! :)

@SHADOWMOON - Good thing you didn't pass it, you'll go crazy with all the Maths. That's in our curriculum anyway LOL. Economy is a great area! I remember failing Basic Economic once because I laughed at my Teacher's pronunciation of certain things LOL. Oh and your compliments flatter me LOL. Sometimes I don't know how to respond to compliments! If I could just smile at people who give 'em ahaha! I don't remember how I met you too!

TriNi said...

LOL I'm sorry that one's not available for your country hun.. but hey they're getting pretty big so who knows.. maybe they'll go international soon ;) I'll be sure to let ya know if I hear anything!

HalfCrazy said...

Thanks, I'm looking forward to earn some money with you. LOL. Just hope they'll be like Cashcrate, send payment to me through mail!

Dennis Villegas said...

Congrats! How cool that 2 people gave you the same award! That's nice. You deserve well and so much more!

Veronica said...

Well done Half Crazy! Thanks for dropping by and enjoying the Queen's Head with us - yes, you're right I did post a picture of a pizza from an earlier meal we had there! Hugs to you, Vxx

Missy said...

Congratulations for the wonderful award *wink *wink you received. Here's another award for you from me...."I love your blog" award hahaha just check my blog. You don't have to blog this but it's up to you! You got 2 awards from me now hahaha *wink wink*

the donG said...

congratulations to everyone! ill try to drop by those blogs.

Ron Centeno said...

Thanks for posting Half Crazy! Thanks again and again for your friendship and support.

HalfCrazy said...

@DENNIS - Oh thanks but I don't deserve 2 but you deserve more than that! Your photos are amazing and I know you know that! :P

@VERONICA - If only Queen's Head will be international, would most probably enjoy it of course. :) I remember the pizza because I saved that photo. :)

@MISSY - Another Award? You always flatter me. If only this is the Oscars LOL.

@THE DONG - It's a great thing you focused on traveling - you're really great with your photos. :) Do try to drop by in one or two of those! :)

@RON - No problem. Thanks for the award too. :)

REDLAN said...

Uy included pala ako sa tinag mo. lol as if hindi ko nabasa before. Ngayon ko lang kasi nabasa siya ng buo. As usual busy pa rin sa work. Yeah blogging is really awesome. As in sa letra na O ( sa pinoy bingo yan)

Thanks sa award. I really appreciate it

shadowmoon said...

Well, if you can smile back when someone compliments you I think it's enough, isn't it?

And yes, nowadays I believe it was good that I didn't pass the entrance exam at that time. I'm not into math that much and blah, I think it would end up being extremely boring. I left Mec. eng. because of that...too much math and physics and only that.
