Dragon’s Loyalty Award

dragons-loyalty-award“The Dragon’s Loyalty Award is an award for the loyal fan/commenter, whether the recipient is a fellow blogger or just someone who follows and comments regularly”. 

There can be no doubt about this: an award which combines Dragon and Loyalty in its title was always bound to warm the cockles of my heart.  Since it’s a Dragon’s award – that must mean treasure! Happy days.  

Mind Chatter happens to be a big dragon fan himself and his blog too is full of treasure – sometimes it comes in poetic form, at other times in prose, but I hope you’ll give it a chance to charm you, as it did me.  

Now that I possess this treasure of an award, I’m on a quest for my own fifteen nominees. Not an easy task, because so many of you have been reading and commentating on shardsofsilence and I am loath to leave anyone out. Alas. Rules are rules, so I will have to appeal to WP statistics to figure out whereto this mystical fiery creature must go next.  

So here you are, my top fifteen commenters. 

1.  Kaufman’s Kavalkade         2. navigator1965

3. CRAZY LIFE                        4. richardankerswrites

5. Opinionated Man                 6. EightLeggedGemini

7. KG                                       8. alienorajt

Now… the first six are easy to figure out, because WP tells me who they are based on the last one thousand comments. The list changes with time and this is how I have my seventh and eight nominees: they were in the top six a few weeks back when I first made note of it for future reference. However, I’m in a little bit of a pickle regarding the final seven spots. There’s nothing I can do for it I’m afraid. It will have to be guesswork and guestimation based on November comments. So here you are, my frequent commenters for this month :  

Dotta Raphels       Scarlet       eriklehman       Nina Kaytel

       chrisnelson61       dawnhosking     Ann Koplow

You’ve come. You’ve seen. You’ve commented. 🙂 A big thank you to you all.

So now the Dragon’s come bearing gifts. Enjoy the award. You deserve it.


Dragon’s Loyalty Award Rules:

1. Firstly, display the Award on your site (see Award page or sidebar!) You earned it and you deserve it!

2. Link back to the person who gave you the award in your acceptance post;

3. Nominate 15 well deserving bloggers for the Award and let them know the wonderful news by sending them a message on their site;

4. List 7 interesting facts about yourself


PS: I will be honest with you, I rather hoped I’d get out of completing point 4. Another seven things? I bet you’re all rather bored with all this “interesting” stuff about me left right and centre 😉

However… despite my reluctance I will comply… with a twist.

Skydived in Argentina — Bungeed off the highest bungee point in New Zealand — Paraglided over Ipanema  beach & next day rock climbed Sugar Loaf in Rio — Scuba dived at night in Hawaii — Trekked for three days to Machu Picchu — Mountain climbed to nearly 1600m in Bolivia — I find the quickest way to get down a mountain is always on skis.

I wish you all a lovely weekend ahead xxx
