The Dragon’s Loyalty Award

15 Jul

Dragons – the mightiest of the signs in the Chinese zodiac. 

“They are dominant and ambitious. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion. Unfortunately, this passion and enthusiasm can leave Dragons feeling exhausted and interestingly, unfulfilled.

“While Dragons frequently help others, rarely will they ask for help. Others are attracted to Dragons, especially their colorful personalities, but deep down, Dragons prefer to be alone. Perhaps that is because they’re most successful when working alone. Their preference to be alone can come across as arrogance or conceitedness, but these qualities aren’t applicable. Dragons have tempers that can flare fast!”


This award is dedicated to the loyal fan/commenter, whether the recipient is a fellow blogger or just someone who follows and comments regularly.  I am gracious to Chelise of Caterpillar to Butterfly for nominating me for this award. I had fun with this. 

Here are the rules:

  • Display the award certificate on your website.

  • Announce your win with a post and link to whomever presented you with the award.

  • Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.

  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post.

  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

In turn here are my 15 nominees:

1.  Sassafrass, the Feisty

2.  morgueticiaatoms

3.  Hi, I’m Dan

4.  Gentle Kindness

5.  dimdaze
