Inaugural A Hoy Awards



There I go.

Oh! My accent!
breath, breath, breath...)

"I want to thank Matthew Holford for creating this award and for inviting me to be a co-founder and Tracy for the great artwork.
I'm very excited because I believe it's a great idea to unite people and make them see that their work is being appreciated.
I'm delighted to announce my contribution to the first raft of
A Hoys to be awarded:

1. Reading Adventures by Marg
2. A Daily Dose of Architecture by John Hill
3. Pmokeefe by Patrick O'Keeffe
4. Artversussport by Yrsa R. Fannberg
5. People and Nature Journal by Steve Chase
6. New York on Time by Jorge Pontual

Now it's time to say why I've chosen these blogs. Instead of giving details of each one I rather stress what they all have in common:
they are passionated by their work.
Thank you for being so damn good!"
(I just hope this teardrop doesn't show)


Rules for Making an Award

1. Pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award based upon any criteria - for example, the quality of the commentary, wit, humour, artwork, overall design, value to you of the information being provided, and so on.

2. The awarding blogger should choose at least two blogs not on his or her own blogroll, the purpose being to encourage variety of reading matter, and to have the person making the award think about what they like to see and read.

3. Your five choices must be published in a dedicated post on your own blog. This post must contain the name of the author (which may be their logon name), and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone. This post should contain brief details of what attracted you to the blog. Details may also be posted in the comments section of "What is a Hoy?"

4. In the same dedicated post, each winner has to show the award and acknowledge the blog that has given him or her the award.

5. Both those awarding and receiving A Hoy must show the link to A Hoy blog, so that everyone will know the origin of this award.

6. When publishing details of the blogs to which you have made your awards, these Rules must be published for recipients to follow.
