The Illustrated Moment Award

illustrated moment award

In honour of illustrated moment blog’s first birthday an awesome award was created.

The aptly named The Illustrated Moment Award is awarded to those among us who brighten the blogosphere by making the effort to build a supportive and wonderful community.

I wanted this award to be an opportunity to tip our imaginary hats to some of the loveliest bloggers on WordPress – and to kick-start the festivities here are the first two winners of The Illustrated Moment Awarddrum roll please!

The winners are: Moderate Mama and A.PROMPTreply!

Both have been amazing readers of my blogs (including Illustrated Health – my attempt at making healthy living and medical knowledge fun, fun, fun.), and have gone above and beyond to support my amateur efforts at documenting life in writing and drawing.

Every blogger wishes to have an interactive audience to share their work with, and both Moderate Mama and A.PROMPTreply have made blogging that much more exciting by leaving thoughtful comments – filled with encouragement and their unique insight – and they have impressive blogs I can’t get enough of!

So this award is my thank you to you both!

Let us get to know you more by answering some of the following questions in your future post. Don’t forget to post a comment with the link to your post, so we can all witness your majestic acceptance of the most awesome award on the internet!

The five questions for you to ponder over are:

1. Why did you first start blogging?

2. Which post did you have most fun writing?

3. Everyone has a favourite memory – which ONE word would you choose to describe your favourite lifetime moment?

4. Do you have a blogger in mind to nominate for The Illustrated Moment Award? Introduce them to us!

5. What’s your spirit animal?

A sugary apology?

DM FINALTN

What an idiot I have been!

Failing to update this blog because my mind has been incapable of juggling in a graceful yet artistic manner – as I said, what and idiot.

But I am here to let you in on a big secret (we might have to work on the definition of secret a bit later on), I am about to reveal one of my time-consuming-and-sometimes-hair-pullingly-annoying projects, because your approval means everything to me.

As you know from my previous post I have been using my limited creativity and imagination to create a series of health-related videos. I promise that they won’t be the kind which encourage you to embark on a colon cleanse or a diet of raw vegetables, it won’t even be about how many crunches you should do if you want that beach body in the next 30 years – I promise that they won’t scare you into a guilty state. My videos will be about the REAL health-related stuff, like diseases which affect our friends and family, and even us. They will be colourful, informative and utterly awesome ways of getting you to think about the conditions and issues you’ve already come across, and learn a lot about some that you have yet to witness!

So I introduce to you Illustrated Health

You can find its blog on our darling WordPress, where those juicy videos will be embedded for you to enjoy! You can also find it on YouTube, where the videos will be updated (hopefully) every fortnight. And guess what! I am going to try my hand at Twitter again (Oh dear…)! That means that you can find Illustrated Health on the Twittersphere as well! Goodness gracious, would you look at all those plugs? And with a cheeky smile I bid you farewell, but not before I embed my first video right here!
