Kreativ Blogger Award | My Sardinian Life

Doing It My Way – Kreativ Blogger Award

I always research the origins of blogging awards because I want to know the rules and I want to link back to the original creator. I was surprised to find that the Kreativ Blogger Award was created by Hulda in Norway in May 2008. Surprised because Hulda created this award the old-fashioned way, with paper and scissors. Now that’s being kreativ, go girl!

I found Hulda’s blog though Simon Food Favourites in a Google search, as he too was looking for the origins of this award. He explains in perfect detail his dislike for these chain-letter type blogging awards (I’d never thought of it that way – chain letters are rather annoying) and adds a different spin to the rules. Check out his link above. I like how he thinks, and he spells favoUrites with an U, must be a good man, eh!

Here are the rules for the Kreativ Blogger Award:

1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.

Most importantly I want to thank Canadiantravelbugs’s Blog for the nomination. If you don’t know anything about the Canadiantravelbugs then I suggest you click their link to discover the adventures and observations of a married couple living and working in China. Thanks Guys!

I’ve just completed the first three rules, and now I’m going to change it up a bit. I am a Kreativ blogger after all.

7 Things My Sardinian Life Wants to Know From You – My Faithful Followers.

  1. What are your favourite type of posts on My Sardinian Life?
  2. What posts make you silently sigh “not again,” when viewed in your WordPress Reader or inbox?
  3. How can I improve my site? Theme, Layout, Widgets … etc.
  4. What do you want to see more/less of?

Oh, and I’m not forwarding this blogging award on, I’ve exhausted all my means with the blogs I regularly follow and who wants to be annoying?

What do you think?

  3. Hi Jennifer,
    Very Kreativ and after all that is what creativity is all about… which is sometimes taking something and making it better. 🙂
    I enjoy your blog and photos… as they say a picture is worth a… you know it 😉
    I love awards and being recognised is something we all deep down enjoy, but I find it hard too to always nominate more and pass it on. I work full time (or more than that as a life of a teacher is not your typical 8 hour a day job), so I have little time to explore other blogs as much as I like to. I have had to limit myself to a few that I have (or they have found me) stumbled upon and enjoyed. That isn’t to say I don’t occasionally I check others out. That makes it hard to nominate others, not to mention the feeling of leaving someone out and hurting their feelings.
    I wonder… when we get these awards and we provide links to all these other blogs how many people actually take the time to read them, follow them or comment? I know I did as a new blogger to widen my scope… lately I am guilty of not doing so as much as I would like, but as a work collegue said to me the other day “Blogging can be a full time job!”

    • Your work collegue is right in saying that blogging could become a full time job! Don’t feel guilty, we ALL have lives seperate from the blog. It can be draining when your inbox is filling up with comments and awards. After 2.5 years of blogging I’ve just come to realize that most of these awards are like a chain-letter, which I’ve always hated. Sure it’s awesome to be noticed by our blogging peers, but after some time the same type of award is boring. I made an award a year or two ago called The Reader Apprecation Award – and there were no rules, you didn’t even have to pass it along nor write 7 things about yourself! In the end it’s nice to see my virtual award case filling up! 🙂

      • After the follow up button being automatically left on I am still catching up on email notifications! I was getting tons a day and sifting all through them is crazy! I just hope I don’t miss anyone I wanted to reply to! This has lead to a small bloggers nightmare for a lot of people I think!
        Yes getting the awards is great… appreciation is always nice 🙂

  4. I’d like to see more short videos: I loved watching the Sardinian’s eat a fish head and, later, you running while filming!

  5. Congrats on the award and on doing it your way !!! You could almost become a pirate Jennifer…hehehe
    I like the post that also reveal a little about you and how Sardinia touches you…they touch me.
    I haven’t found any that lead me to sigh and think ‘oh no!’
    I like the layout the way it is…but you nedd to expand your blogroll 😉
    Well you know i leave comments and I do share on social media…love doing that
    Maybe you should get some locals to put guest posts up with their perspective…or do more history/mythology…I luuuuuuuuvvvvvvvvvvvvv history/mythology, and I figure a place like Sardinia has lots of that.
    Hey – maybe you could take adventure sporst and do videos of you jumping off mountains, or fighting off wild sheep…hehehe

  6. Congratulations! You did the right thing! I have thirteen to acknowledge!!!!
    I love all your posts on Sardinia.

    • Kathy,

      But you are wrong, you do deserve an award. Your writing is great!
      I’m running out of blogs to nominate, in the past I’ve nominated the same blogs twice which is deserved. At the moment I have a lot on my plate, and I like to spice things up sometimes, change the rules. For some rules were meant to be broken, no? 😉

  7. Hiya! I love your blog – I really like the photos and the way you describe things so they come to life…
    I share posts if I see the link on FB or Twitter…
    and for the future – why not join the A to Z challenge with us? It’s a good way of adding new thoughts and ideas to your blog and challenges you to cover the alphabet – and you can link up with lots of other bloggers too
    I like what you’ve done with your award too – I’ve just about exhausted my blog directory now so I shall be following your lead if anyone else sends me an award 😉
    and keep blogging – you’re great! 🙂

    • I don’t know why Im just seeing these comments now. The A to Z challenge sounds super fun, but I think Ill start it in the fall! Thank you for sharing my stuff around the internet it’s truly appreciated!

  8. Good way to switch it up. I have a blog award that I have to get to but I’m not going to forward it on to too many people. I’m going to answer only number one of your questions. My favourite posts are sights in Sardinia as I want to visit some day and DIY projects. Still want to make that bamboo ladder.

Your comments are greatly appreciated, thank you.
