The Shauny Award


Mark Bialczak has nominated me for the Shauny Award.  He’s a pretty good guy if I do say so myself.  He’s a glass half full kind of guy.  He knows music, and can write about pretty much anything under the sun.  He can take a mean selfie.  His beard is majestic.

The beard is majestic, but not that long.

Despite the CNY Blogger community bringing us to the same rooms around Syracuse, his efforts through WordPress has allowed myself and several of you to get to know him.  If you don’t know him yet, you will want to.  He’s a charismatic guy, and gives great insight.

So thank you, Mark, for nominating me for this award, so I can pay my appreciation forward.

About the award and its rules are as follows, no give-backsies (obviously), and I tried to not replicate Mark’s nods:

The Shauny Award. Was created by Dr Rex who created this award to acknowledge the efforts and multiple contributions that a lad, Shaun Gibson, has shown since he started blogging in the WordPress platform. You can find more information at

The rules of acceptance are:

Show Humanity, Show Love, Be Yourself, Don’t Be Others, Don’t Gossip, and Share This Award with 10 others.”

  1. Congratulations!

    And thank you very much 😀

    I love knowing what inspired someone to create a blog award, and the story behind this one is very inspiring. Thanks for including the origins and link.

    You are truly an awesome blogger who shines through his blog in a heartwarming, uplifting and humorous way!

    1. You deserve the recognition! There definitely is a great story behind the award.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, and you definitely have a way with them as well. I have definitely been enjoying your blog and your artistry. You have such a variety of talent.

  2. Thanks for the award, Chris! You’re awesome! I’m trying to come up with a post that basically responds to all the awards I’ve received lately. After my hooked session yesterday I realized people don’t know any randomness about me so maybe that should change. 🙂

  3. Thank you for the platitudes, thank you for your attitude, and your nominations are very smart, dude. Congratulations. And, oh, Aussa, my beard, though majestic, is not quite Ring-like.

    1. It kind of does. (Pardon me while I take a moment to check under my bed and closet.)

      We both need to step away from the horror movie references, Aussa. We’re going to give each other nightmares.

      Be careful of what you watch.
