The award was started by Shaun @  http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com:

‘This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I start this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award.’

The rules:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your wordpress experience and family.

4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.

5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people that have taken you as a friend, and spread the love.

    Good speech…x
    I am soo glad I created this award, it brings people together

  7. saplingvegan says:

    Cool! I’m so new to wordpress and don’t really understand all the awards and things but they sound great! You’re so sweet to think of me 🙂 Also I have no clue how to post a logo on my blog…maybe you can help me out with that since you have so many awards!

    • Poppy says:

      It’s just a way of bloggers to show appreciation to other bloggers. You don’t have to participate, but I like to share the love! 😀
      To post the logo on your blog, right click on the image and click ‘copy image URL’. Go to your dashboard, appearance, widgets and drag ‘image’ over to the right hand side where you want the logo to go. Paste the URL in the relevant field, click save and it should then appear on your blog! To add it to a post you can just copy and paste it into the post editor. Hope that makes sense! 😀

  8. saplingvegan says:

    Oh that sounds so nice. I like what Shaun said about not making everything into a competition and people just being nice and friendly.
    Thanks for the logo tips I will for sure give it a try!

  9. Congratulations Poppy! Thank you so so much for thinking of me! 😀
