In early May, I received the “Awesome Blog Content” award from my friend and ManAboutWorld correspondent (more about that in a moment), Ivan Quintanilla, founder and editor of the terrific gay-travel-oriented TravelingIQ.
This award is a grass-roots, self-sustaining initiative allowing bloggers and others toiling in social media to recognize one another’s efforts. A sort of social-media-content daisy-chain of congratulations! I’m honored and I thank Ivan, since I love (and subscribe to) his blog.
When accepting this award, the rules dictate that I describe myself or my blog using every letter of the alphabet and pass on the award to six fellow bloggers. So here goes:
Active, Bostonian, City-oriented, Dextrous, Effective, Francophone, Gay-friendly, Hustler (mind out of gutter!), Influencer, Jocular, Kinetic, Laughing, Mellow-Not!, Open-minded, Portuguese-learning, Queer, Respectful, Spinner, Tastemaker, Unaffected, Vain, Xcstatic to almost be finished this list, Youthful, Zestful
Now the most challenging part of this initiative because I have so many deserving colleagues: I offer you six really great people to whom I pass this award and the challenge of creating an alphabetic list of self-descriptions.
Kim Orlando: Founder and director of TravelingMom.com, a “survival guide for moms who travel.” She is highly respected in the mom/family travel blogging world.
Congrats to the six of you! Please pass on this award to six deserving recipients.
Now, back to ManAboutWorld. I’m working with Billy Kolber to launch a new gay travel magazine, the only one built exclusively for the iPad. Please sign up here to receive the inaugural issue free: http://manaboutworld.com. It’s expected to launch this summer.
