Power of Schmooze Award

Posted by nytexan on July 15, 2007

Thanks to Suzie-Q, Bluebloggin has been tagged for the Power of Schmooze Award. We are very honored.


Power of Schmooze Award was created by two bloggers Mike of Things by Mike and Danielle of Pink Review. Many who received this award have already received the “Thinking Blogger Award”

Schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well.

Here are our 5 recipients of the Power of Schmooze Award:

Chen Zhen’s Chamber: This is a very thoughtful and well written blog. Chen has a way of viewing topics from angles that most of us don’t bother with. Also Chen is truly all inclusive he came up with a Political Bloggers Alliance with the goal of creating an open conversation with all political ideologies.

Clapso: This blog takes on topics with a critical eye. His style is op-ed usually with visually splashed in, nice touch to round out his points. Oh and did I mention there is plenty of criticism to go around.

From The Left: Those of you who are familiar with Christopher know that he is on top of all the news and on point. Christopher’s post no BS post. They’re right to the point and he is more than happy to share his opinions with you. His blog reflects his belief in justice and freedom. He also has a very strong voice for civil rights issues.

Liberally Mirth: A very well researched blog with topics covering a wide spectrum. Mirth and D-day do a great job everyday of posting national and world information with their opinions mixed in. On Sundays they post Community Speaks when they introduce their readers to a new blog, which I think is a great idea.

Some Notes On Living: ProudProgessive covers interesting with versatile topics that are well researched. ProudProgessive is passionate on politics and social issues. This is a blog that is strong on spirit, progressive values and with a lot to tell you. You will definitely enjoy and learn something in this blog.

Now these Schmoozers have to pass the award along to five more people that have shown their ability to enter into the huge online conversation that is the “blogosphere”.

    OK I have the award in my sidebar, although I took the liberty to resize it and alter the color, and linked it back to this post. I’ll get around to finding a few folks. Thanks again.

    BTW- Did you guys get tagged for the Thinking Blogger Award twice? Impressive!

  6. nytexan said

    Very nice to resize I may just steal your image.

    Thanks, we were very surprised.

    You do excellent work! 🙂

  9. Hi and thank you very much. LOL, yeah we at love Notes love to schmooze and think. We value it in fact. Everyone is always welcome to drop by and jump in. Its a new blog only started in March, kind of happened by accident. Its a lucky thing, to have met such KIND people. Thank you.

  10. Notes ought to be called the edicts of PP or Typos R us. But that does not stop me. Luckily there is a team of way talented writers. But i am the Queen Schmoozer – no doubt about it.

    BTW: I noticed that I have a new visitor in this comment section,
    phil_in_ny. His blog is E-News: Articles Without Borders
    News, Opinion and Commentary From Politics to Fashion, and Beyond

    I just paid it a visit and it is a nice fast view on articles that get lost in the MSM with his commentary.

    Thanks for coming by hope to see you again.

    Thanks Suzy-Q. Can ya send a novena letter next time, I can pass those off on the old ladies in the neighborhood. This picking ONLY 5 bloggers is hard. There are so many great writers and all.

    Hell, ChenZhen even figured out how to make that fancy pingback thing work 😉

    I will be posting my 5 victims at 9am eastern, that is if I figured out how to get that fancy schedule thing to work. Else I’ll post it when I get up at the crack of noon.

    Really thanks a lot you all! And congratz to all the other winners.
