Arte y Pico Award

Thanks Caroline for passing on the prestigious Arte y pico award to the Mupersans' Blog! This is an interesting one... The intention behind the origin of the award is quite clever. It works like a chain letter - each award winner in turn presents the award to 5 others. By linking to the original site (Arte y pico), the originator gets to view other people's blogs that they wouldn't normally come across. Clever idea but from the looks of things, this got a bit out of hand and grew too big for the originator to visit each and every blog. As he/she mentions in their latest post, they were leaving comments on each blog visited but were just inundated and couldn't spend every waking moment on the PC.

If anyone's wondering how I suddenly learnt how to read Spanish (I think that's what it's written in!), I haven't. But my good friend Google can & I just asked it to translate for me. The translation tool isn't perfect because it doesn't always get the context correct, but it's good enough to get the jist of things.

So let's get onto the important stuff...... (imagine a drum roll here).....

The RULES for presenting this sought after Award are:

  • Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
  • Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog.
  • Each award winner (upon acceptance) should show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award.
  • Link to the Arte y pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
  • Show these rules.
And the awards go to.....

Life In Dubai - Seabee
Carrie & Warren's LSD to Australia - Carrie
Markusse Family - Carol
The Life of Pie - Anna
Didgeridudes - Paul & Lee
