The Noblesse Oblige Award

I'm deebly honored and not just a little humbled to receive the Noblesse Oblige Award from Janine from Sniffles and Smiles. Janine is a very accomplished and creative writer in the blog-universe, and it's always a great treat to read her posts and her comments. But beware when you read them, as there's an acute danger of being inspired, of becoming wiser and of being moved! A thousand thanks to Janine for this award and for her way of being a blogger. Don't ever change!

Below I've posted the details of the award:

Details of Noblesse Oblige Award

The recipient of this award is recognized for the following:
  • The Blogger manifests exemplary attitude, respecting the nuances that pervade amongst different cultures and beliefs
  • Their Blog contents inspire; strives to encourage, and offers solutions
  • There is a clear purpose at the Blog; one that fosters a better understanding on Social, Political, Economic, the Arts, Cultures, Sciences and Beliefs
  • The Blog is refreshing and creative
  • The Blogger promotes friendship and positive thinking.

The Blogger who receives this award will need to perform the following:

  • Create a post with a mention and link to the person who presented the Noblesse Oblige Award
  • The Award Conditions must be displayed at the Post
  • Write a short article about what the Blog has thus far achieved – preferably citing one or more older posts as support
  • The Blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the Award conditions- Blogger must display the Award at any location at their Blog.


In accordance with the conditions I've got to tell, what I've achieved so far. Well, that is not easy as I'm not blogging to achieve anything, except maybe to share my love for photography with kindred spirits.

My blogging started six months ago, when I started writing in Danish, after my sister Asta (Hyperenergy and other obstacles and All I Need Is A Good Book) had inspired and encouraged me to start. It wasn't until March that I switched to English, mostly to try to reach a broader audience. Having posted my post number 100 not too long ago, my goal for the nearest future is to keep posting daily within my chosen themes for the next year. If I accomplish that, I think I've really reached a personal goal.

I hope too that I can inspire others to blog and share their photos, feelings, great stories or opinion about anything that is close to their heart. That, I think, would be the greatest possible achievement!
