Prairie Sagebrush Awards 2011 — preview

I will be giving the second Prairie Sagebrush Award to my blogroll friends in a few weeks.  It is the second year of recognizing fine creations on the blogosphere.

Read last year’s award-winning posts: Prairie Sagebrush Award 2010.

I select a post, photograph or artwork that has been composed in the last year, say, from June 2010 to May 2011.  It’s a celebration of a year of my blogging.

There’s no first, second or third.  I select the post, photograph or artwork that was meaningful to me and the universe and create a ONE POST ANTHOLOGY of all the fine work created.  It’s a long post, but well worth bookmarking.

For every comment made on the ANTHOLOGY POST for Prairie Sagebrush Award 2011, I will donate one buck to a wildlife corridor in Texas or New Mexico (limit is $500).  Last year I donated thirty-five dollars.

I’ll be posting a couple of my favorite posts from my blogroll before the big revelation on June 1, 2011 — if not before.

    What a fabulous way to celebrate another successful year of blogging. Your posts inspire all of us. And your work to return lands to native states is remarkable, a real testament to your fortitude and character.

    This afternoon I planted my spring flower garden. An hour later two bees appeared. They are Mr. and Mrs. B.B. King. We hope they have children and prosper.

  2. I really like that you take the time to appreciate other bloggers. I have just looked through last years choices and was impressed with the raw beauty of the words, thoughts, and photographs (some of the photographs were incredible)! Thanks for doing this. This really made me think about this new method we have of communicating. Important information, laughs, beautiful imagery is given to the public out of the goodness of people’s hearts. I see it as revolutionary! Art for the people. And I loved your thoughts on the lack of editing. Sort of a new age for thought.

    I would love to see more photos of the natural restoration of your land. Perhaps some before and afters to help give me a perspective. As an individual that practices restoration ecology I am fascinated by what people like yourself are doing.

    Thanks, Jack, you sure are inspirational in all regards.

    • Bill, thank you for your kind comment. I can put up before and after photos I think. I have a pretty good photo record of the land and grasses. I could be a little more scientific I know and one of my goals is more precise recording keeping.

      It is Art for people, isn’t it? And, we do it out of the goodness of our hearts and a love of writing fine sentences. I make the Prairie Sagebrush Award in part because there is really! fine writing on blogs. There’s garbage, but I don’t read it and don’t list it on the blogroll. I’ve settled in on a theme and read mainly relevant blogs about nature. I look forward to going through your posts and selecting the one I like. It will be difficult because all of yours are so finely written.

  3. Hi Jack,

    I know I have not commented on a lot of topics lately on your blog…however I do visit your site and I am always impressed of all the topics you have and the amazing land you talk about in your neighborhood. It seems that I have at time so much on the go with all my knitting that sometimes the writing just gets put on hold…How nice of you to take the time or have the time to now give out award again this year…good luck to you all….There are so many wonderful writers out there just like yourself ….so please give yourself this special THANK YOU from me to YOU for all the great posts you have shared with us …..Looking forward to so many more.

    • Hi Jacqueline: Don’t worry about not commenting. I have a symbol on my right sidebar that is B.W.O., standing for Blogging Without Obligation. Your blog is so enjoyable and relaxing. Knitting and nature and the life you have in Canada along with your language translations. It’s always a pleasure to see you. Thanks for your comment and I look forward to visiting your site every week.
