Bloggers Sharing the Love

It’s always a treat when we get to share posts, tributes and common  interests.  I wanted to take this opportunity to prompt everyone to join in the fun — the deadline for the next Carnival of Aloha is this coming up on us again this Wednesday, October 29th.

Blog Love Award

I was pleasantly surprised to read a comment left by one of our regular Carnival participants letting me know that she included Homespun Honolulu on her list of blogs to receive this little award.   Pua chose to make her selections consist of Hawaii blogs and that served as a wonderful reminder to me that we all share so much with each other when we share our posts and accolades like this one.

Pua received her award from Anele over at True Aloha. Thank you, Anele and Pua, for sharing this with each other and thank you, Pua, for including me!

Once you receive this award, the idea is to do the following:

* Display your award.
* Link back to the person who gave you the award.
* Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
* Put links to those blogs on yours.
* Leave a message on the blogs of the people you’ve nominated.
* Enjoy your award!

I will follow Pua’s lead and list them in alphabetical order.  Some of them may be receiving the love more than once but, oh well.  🙂

A Darker View has been on my radar ever since they joined us for one of our Carnival of Aloha expeditions.  I love the photos and the night sky to be sure.

Go Visit Hawaii has been near and dear to my heart for quite some time.  Sheila’s love of the Hawaiian islands and her dedication to talking about all of them is what makes her blog very unique.  There are few of us who talk so consistently about all of the island all of the time!  In addition to her blog, Sheila and her husband Andy, are hard acts to follow as well.

Hawaii Vacation Gifts by Double Brush is a refreshing blog for me because this blogger keeps it real and stays close to nature and close to my heart.

Jason Boom is always “exploding across the Internet.”  I just like the “personality” of this blog and the way this blogger writes and the topics he chooses.

Lynn’s Lair, aka is part of the love network, to be sure!

Mel’s Internet Universe Weblog always seems to capture my heart with all of Mel’s perfect photos and colors.

Skeet’s Stuff will always be one of my favorites, even if she does leave us.  Yes, she’s leaving us.  *Sniff!*  Okay, I’m being selfish.  She’s happy and excited and off on a new adventure.  She’s going to be joining family back on the mainland.  So?!?  Well?  I’m losing a friend and a coherent connection to the Leeward side of the island, what do you expect me to say? (Hmpf!)

The Modern Historian fascinated me when I saw it and I try to follow it whenever I can.  It’s so nice to have a touch of history every day or as often as you can get to it.  It’s nice to see how we’ve always been a little odd, just in different ways.  I love the linking of history and literature — this blogging about history sort of adds a twist to that.

Virtual Scratchpad is not one that I am willing to overlook, even though I already have seven.  Now I’m one up on the rest.  🙂  This in no way talkes away form The Right Blue, Bobbie.  Oh, does that make ten?

There are so many others that I could include here and it’s amazing that we have all found each other.

In addition to the blogosphere, I love our local blogs and their bloggers who have chosen to join us in the Carnival when they can. I hope this little post will inspire everyone to join the Hawaii-blogger ohana with their about-Hawaii submissions before the deadline next week and share their blog love across the Net.

    I’d LOVE to participate in the Carnival of Aloha. What do I do?

    Hi Cloudia! I did forget to provide the link at the top. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I fixed it. 🙂 Anyway, you can check out the guidelines and send in a post using this form. The post just needs to be about Hawaii or about something Hawaiian or about something or some place in Hawaii, etc. You get the picture. 🙂

    Wow! Mahalo Evelyn, this is the first reward I have received for my blog and I find it so exciting. Now I have to narrow down my favorite bloggers to share the aloha with:)

    Giggles! HVG, that is the hardest part. There are so many out there and we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface.

    Thanks for the reviews of the blogs.

  • 6 Pua // Oct 27, 2008 at 3:16 pm

    Hooray, Evelelyn! You picked up Alene’s and my mission. I really had fun visiting your choices of favorite blogs. That’s what it’s all about. Spread the word and widen our blog horizon.

    Only thing I regret with ‘I love this blog’ award is that we have to make a selection and that does not come easy.

    To all my blogging friends which I did not name this time, there will be more occasions for blogger awards! A hui hou. Pua

    Hey Keahi! Thanks for stopping by! Are you going to join us for the Carnival this time around? Please do, it’ll be fun!

    It’s always good to share the aloha across the globe, Pua. I just wish we all had time to mention everyone all the time! 🙂

    Thank you for your kind words about my blog (‘The Modern Historian’).

    If you left a comment on my blog letting me know about this award then I must have missed it, for which I can only apologise (I found out about this post via Technorati).

    Hello Kevin! You’re not to blame, I am. I was looking for an email address and couldn’t find one. I should have left a comment letting you know but I still haven’t told a couple of others either. I’m a bad person. I’m glad you found it! You’ve got a good thing going there!
