Blog of the Year Award 2013

I have been given the Blog of the Year 2013 Award from  Thank you so much!

Blog of The Year 2013 Award

I haven’t been accepting awards officially on my Sage Doyle blog, but once you see my acceptance here you may understand part of the reason why.  The hardest part is nominating other bloggers.  I don’t have much time for the process.  My process entails sorting through every single blog I’m following, and I’m always concerned I’ll leave someone out.  Well, I never bothered making my Wall Grimm blog award free because, to be honest, I never expected it to receive any awards.  But now that I have received my very first award for Grimm, I am intensely honored and I have to accept.

When it came down to the blogs that I wanted to award, again I was afraid I’d forget someone.  There have been a lot of invaluable people who have supported me through this process or encouraged me to make this happen.  There have been so many loyal readers and people who’ve gone through Grimm’s journey on my Sage Doyle blog.  The task seemed almost impossible to me to award everyone that has been in some way part of Grimm’s growth.  As a result, I decided to award everyone who has followed this blog.  You may see 1500 something followers when you choose to follow, but keep in mind that includes Twitter.  I actually have 118 followers.  A handful of those come by and like the posts.  And even fewer comment.  I’m truthfully not one to count the numbers, but I just wanted to acknowledge the readers who followed me over from the old blog, and welcome the new followers.  I want to thank everyone who’s followed this blog even if they haven’t read any of the posts.  I want to express how valuable those who like the posts are to me.  There were so much criteria for selection that I came up with, I thought this was the best way to express my gratitude.

I am awarding 117 followers.  It will take me a little time to make my way around notifying everyone of the award, so bear with me in case the pingbacks fail, or if you receive a pingback prior to my notifying you, or if I notify you after you’ve already seen your name and accepted.  It’s a lot to keep track of.  Also, please forgive the impersonal “form” notification as I copy and paste.  If by any chance you are following me and I somehow missed you, let me know, it was a mistake.  Lastly, if you’re not a blog to accept awards, I obviously understand that.  Awarding you is my way to thank you and it is of no insult to me if you decline.

The 118th follower is a spam porn chat room so…yeah, I’ll disregard that one.

And I want to thank the spammer who said this “You are amazing as your perform and I genuinely consider that this is a great subject matter to share….”

And I will ignore the troll who said this “You use the word “orgasm” so casually and in public, like so many sexual sociopaths.”

And I won’t be awarding either of them.

Anyway, thank you Sweetness at once again for this award.  I am deeply honored.

The instructions for this award are simple:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.

    Wow! Congrats and thank you! You are one awesome blogger to nominate everyone. But, I understand since to me every blogger has something refreshing to their blog–each blogger is excellent in his or her own way. Once again, congratulations and many thanks! ~White Rabbit :D

    • You’re welcome, and thank you! And I agree, it’s really humbling to be nominated but it’s very difficult to select blogs to award, since there are so many talented bloggers and such uniqueness in the community. Thanks so much for following :)

  8. Well thank you for your support! I am so interested in the opportunity!

  9. Congrats and thanks

  13. Congrats and well done :)

  14. A Wall Grimm addict! I went to rehab. I think it’s been a few days. “Still adore you Grimm!” I yell across the light-waves to where ever he is. :D

    • Hahaa, yeah you definitely deserve this award. And stop trying to make me fall in love with you lol

      • “Oh and and I love you, Sage, just as much as I do Grimm, ain’t no shame in love! you’re allowed to love me back, but only if you want!”, I said and then blew you a kiss, “x”.
        You have a lot to be proud of. I really hope you do well and have all the readers you want to understand your slant. It’s a good one! Most enjoyable! (hugs) :D

  15. I really appreciate that you considered us! Congrats on your own nomination!!

    Thanks Sagedoyle,

    I do decline the offer of the award, nothing to do with any of those in the blogging world. My reasons for blogging are mostly selfish, i blog to keep sanity in my world, which becomes very delusional with no help from the amount of drugs i do.

    So once again thank you, but i do decline…

    toad (chris jensen)

    • No problem at all Toad, it’s just my way of saying thank you for following, and in your case, for your dedicated readership. Take care, my friend

  19. Thanks so much! :)

  20. Dang…that sure must have been a lot of work!! Thank you for the award even though I’ve been a “bad” Grimm follower :P However I will say that having read some of his journal entries, you totally deserve this award :)

    You know..I remember you posting once on the other blog about spam comments really should do one here…as Wall Grimm …if you have the time, once you transfer all the blogs and set up house :)

    • Oh yeah, I think you mean the searches maybe? That was fun to post. I’ve glanced at the searches here, and there hasn’t been many interesting searches yet. In due time I’m sure, considering all the sex on this blog, that’s what tends to draw the questionable searches. Once I get enough, I will probably do another post like that. On your blog, you probably don’t get those kinds of searches lol

      • Bahahaha..nope but I’ve had my fair share of viagra spam comments…LOL

        • lol hmmmm Viagra I hate those spam in my email, and the enlargement ones, I mean, it’s kind of insulting ;)

          • Ahahaah..insulting to you maybe…but quite disturbing to me :P

            It reminded me of when back in the day when MySpace was a blogging platform…I have a cute bunny standing on his hind legs staring at a mirror…NO other photos of me..and I’d get all these creepy messages from creepy men who wanted my “friendship”…..LOL

          • Yep there are some creepy people out there. And funny we’re talking about this because I’m just about to post the Adriana21 journal entry, based on a spam email. Coincidence?

          • Oo…Divine timing! Hahahaha..shhh…don’t quote me on that! My poor blog’s reputation! *snort* And..I’m going to read that post too..;)

          • I couldn’t resist writing that one lol And I won’t quote you. It’s between me and you…and anyone who reads the comment :P

          • I know right…comments are brilliant for secrets :P

          • lol mhm

          • Ok I just looked, the only interesting search so far is, “journal entries for fetishes” lmao

          • LOL…oh that’s a good start my friend..a very good start ;)

          • Yep, I’m on my way lol

  21. tkankyou.

  22. I have been absent as late and signed on to see this message. You have deeply moved me. The pleasure of reading your work is mine, but now you reward me for it. That touches me. Have a beautiful and inspired day and thank you for your wonderful posts; they enhance a day. Hugs

    • Thank you so much, I should award you again just for that incredible compliment!

      • My heart is an open book and speaks simply and clearly; life is short; one must never refrain when there is a kindness to be shown as the opportunity may never present itself again. You are very talented and it would be a loss to myself – to not express those thoughts to you. Huge hugs

  23. Aw, thank you so much Grimm, that is so sweet of you to have taken the time to do all that. I can’t even imagine.. @@ It’ll be a pleasure to accept this and broadcast you shamelessly on my blog, for the moment however the Duck will have to excuse herself with another one of her ‘work’ excuses – shallow aint she? – I will write up a post as soon as I can (: Congratulations and thanks again ! The Journey of Grimm has been fun to serious, but always great to read (Y)

    • You’re welcome, and thank you. Take your time with it, no rush at all. And yeah I like that about Grimm because I tend to write a lot of darkness into my stories, but with him I have the humor too. I don’t think I’m a very humorous writer otherwise, since anything too silly ends up getting edited out of my novels as it seems to have no place. With Grimm I have much more freedom. Thanks again :)

  24. Hi Sage. Congratulations! And thank you!:)

  25. Thanks a million my friend for including me here, it’s a pleasure really. I loved your journal though I haven’t finished it yet. Way to go, and congrats :)

  26. So very cool, thanks a ton! =)

    –Love and Liberation–


  27. Well of course I will accept the award! I know I have been distant as of late but I will be back real soon!

    • You know what though, we all have our time away now and then, but fellow bloggers can be like the best friends, you don’t need to see them all the time to know they’re there, and appreciation of them is unconditional. You deserve this award. :)

      • Thank you sososo much but you make everyone else look bad,,lol, you never have time away and if you do you always post that you will be away. You never just disappear, you deserve this award. You are an awesome blogger and writer! Well writer first then blogger.

        Thanks again <3
