Kreativ Blogger Award: Pay It Forward With Blogging

Posted by Moshe Mikanovsky

Kreativ Blogger AwardI have just finished posting my new blog post today, and went to Twitter to tweet about it, and check for what is going on today in tweet-world, when I got this message from Daniel Tardent of Art Marketing Secrets:

artmarketing:  @mmikanovsky We just nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger Award! – http://bit.ly/bRilFa

What  an interesting concept and nice social media idea! Thank you Daniel, I am honoured!

By now, repeating what the Kreativ Blogger Award is all about is so redundant, as I am sure you will do what I did – read backward from Daniel’s post to Tara’s (who nominated him), so be my guest and go there to check it out as well :-)

I do have to follow the rules, so here they are:

The Rules

  1. You must thank the person who has given you the award (Done).
  2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog (Done).
  3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award (Done, and once more - Art Marketing Secrets).
  4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting (see below).
  5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers (see even more below).
  6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate (with the same below).
  7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated (will do :-) ).

7 things about yourself that people might find interesting :

  1. I love watching the Food channel but I don’t cook anything! My wife wonders how that can be, and hopes I will surprise her one day with a gourmet meal I prepare all by myself.
  2. Lego was my favourite childhood toy, and I was always building houses, dreaming to be an architect when I grow up.
  3. I was serving in the Israeli army during the first Gulf War, and I remember all the Skad missiles falling around us…
  4. I have a dream to live in Italy and learn to speak Italian.
  5. I love yoga.
  6. I want to open a software development and technology company that will also double as artists studio and gallery for all the employees.
  7. I once sat on the same chair as Mrs. Barbara Bush… I flew from Houston to Detroit, and had an upgrade to business class, and she was flying with her body guard. She sat across the aisle from me. In the middle of the flight I used the lavatories, and she went in after me… I kept wondering “did I keep it clean enough?”

My Kreativ Blogger Nominations are:

  1. Kate Harper – http://kateharperblog.blogspot.com/
  2. Joan Beiriger –  http://www.joanbeiriger.blogspot.com/
  3. Clint Watson – http://clintwatson.net/blog
  4. Dan Duhrkoop – http://EmptyEasel.com
  5. Michelle “Shell” Rummel – http://www.shellartistree.blogspot.com/
  6. Daniel Sroka – http://blog.danielsroka.com/
  7. Naomi Broudo –  http://ketubahbynaomi.blogspot.com/

Ok, I have done it! Paid it forward, and didn’t break the chain-of-Social-Media-reaction.

  1. Moshe,
    I LOVE your 7 interesting things! The one about the food channel is just hilarious.

    But I must say that I am very intrigued about the “first GOLF war” :)




  2. LOL, fact #8 – I never played GOLF in my life (if you don’t consider minigolf, that’s it)

    Typo fixed! Hope no one saw it…. ;-)

  3. You are 1 step ahead of me on #1 – I don’t like to cook OR watch cooking shows! Fun to get a peek at some little known (at least to me) facts about my “Kreativ Blogger grandson” – ha!

  4. I love those 7 things about you!! especially the software art gallery. You should be living in the bay area, where art and technology have no boundaries.
