And The Award Goes To…

Many thanks to Dan, my friend two islands over, and host of Galiano’s food blog:  IslandEat.  He has bestowed the coveted Sunshine Award upon little ol’ Island Vittles — and for that, I say “Thanks Dan!”

When one receives the Sunshine Award, she or he must:
1. Nominate 12 bloggers.
2. Put the award logo onto the sidebar or within a post.
3. Link to the nominees within that post.
4. Let the nominees know they’ve received this award by commenting on their blogs.
5. FInally, link to the person from whom one has received this award

Now I have a number of blogs that I follow and love.  But I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen this award on a few of them already — so I’m going to a different way — my recipients are all young, mostly teen-aged, food bloggers. And I have only 5 recipients.  Call me lame, if you will.  Twelve is a lot — that’s all I’m saying.

I admire them for following their passion while so young, and for sticking with it — blogging is a lot of work!  I’m also inspired by their creativity.  Just look at what they’ve done:

  1. Hi, Theresa. You’re welcome, and I am glad to see you’ve chosen to honour young food bloggers – an admirable way to “spread the sunshine”. I have connected with only Shauniece recently, so it’s nice to discover others. Congrats to all of you! Dan

  2. Thanks so much! I really enjoyed seeing your website too. I will definitely be back!

  3. CONGRATULATIONS Theresa on your Blogging Award. I think you are ready to approach (a) glossy foodie mag(s). I would be delighted to provide contacts if you agree. You are building a solid platform, which is something the US foodies particularly love. It takes tremendously hard work to blog daily, especially accompanied by the brilliant photos you provide–nicely set up, too. That is a whole job in itself–I know, I did it once for a foodie mag I also wrote for, a la carte, now defunct sadly. Take good care of yourself, you’re going to need all the nutrients, exercise, rest ‘n sleep, good friends, loving husband and FUN you can squeeze into your life. You’re going far, galfriend, climbing to the top in fact. Accolades, standing ovations and BRAVISSIMO! trysh Ashby-Rolls, Author & Journalist

  4. Hello! Thank you so much for nominating me for this award. I am very humbled by this, I mean I’ve NEVER been nominated for anything…ever…so this really touches my heart . Thank you sooooo much for keeping an eye on my site, and finding it worthy to be nominated, I reaally really do appreciate it!
    God Bless,

  5. Congrats, Theresa! (I missed this blog when it was posted.) Your’e doing a great job and your photos are lovely and mouth-watering. I’ve been plugging for you whenever possible.
