Neda created some awards recently in response to the Blog Action Day. She gave them to me for some of my work. Neda suggested we pass them along also. Most of you I visit regularly also got theses awards so I am going to introduce you to some new blogs.
Artist for Peace Â© Neda Doany
Tom Weiner has started a blog relatively recently and he has been quite busy!! His blog is called Vietnam War Draft Stories. He has been writing a book “Called To Serve: Stories of Men and Women Affected by the Vietnam Draft.” He wants to help heal the pain still going on from that war and build bridges. I find that both of these awards are perfect for him as a writer. you may notice that Tom’s blog is laid out a little differently than usual. His front page is static – he is still wanting stories. Some of the stories are on pages – accessed from the sidebar. And also his new posts are also accessed from the sidebar.

The other people who have started blogging haven’t done many posts yet. They have let periods of time stretch without posting. But I know them personally and know that all three are working for peace and harmony. I am giving them this reward for the work that they do as artists for peace rather than as bloggers for peace. And I do hope that this award will encourage them to blog more regularly!
Pam Roberts has a blog Spirit of the Written Word and she works with the healing power of words for healing health issues and our feelings around these issues. “The Healing Power of Writing” is her caption. This is why I feels she deserves this award.
Ellen Blanchette has a blog called Arts & Politics. Ellen is a photographer and also a writer, among other artistic things. She started her blog particularly to discuss art and also politics … which is why I am giving her this award. I know the general drift of her politics and I know she is for peace and for protecting the environment.
Karl Meyer has a blog called Karl Meyer Writing and he also writes many articles for newspapers, books and such. Trust me, he is very active for global peace, the environment and rights! He hasn’t written that much political in his blog yet, but wait until he gets going!

I want you to have a chance to know about these other blogs and also to encourage these new bloggers that it is worth writing … people do read.
By the way, I would encourage someone who has one of Frances‘ awards, to give the teaching award to Neda. She has had some many posts with hints about how she collages, I think it would be great to give her that award! Frances’ awards are very beautiful and I hope they get passed along!! They deserve to!
I would love to hear about you too!!
