My First Blogger Award


By Tom Nardone

Hello Everyone,

Tom Nardone here I Have been nominated for my first award. Jade Reyner of Jade’s Jungle has nominated me for the “Shine on Award”. Thank you Jade, this is very thoughtful. I have and do, thoroughly enjoy reading you.

As far as the rest of you are concerned, nothing has changed. Your awesomeness is Not on the line. I will be nominating 15 or so of you as per the rules, but please do not feel obligated to reply. I have no expectations of you in regard to this award. You may accept or not accept this. I will love you just the same.

“Thoughts and Rants in Jogging Pants” I know you aren’t going to do it because it would violate your need to have a perfect record of no pictures on your blog that you are so proud of. You will kick no less ass in my book. And CV, I imagine you are trying to catch a flight somewhere. Live your lives write your magic. If you have time for this than please do it. For what its worth, I think you have earned it.shine-on

Anyway here are the rules:

1. Display the award on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

3. State 7 random facts about yourself.

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers to receive the award.

  1. Bahahahah….you are awesome!! I know I have said that before, but you crack me up every time you write. I never expect any of it 🙂

    • Thank you princess
      I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to know that my stories have that effect on you. I think you are one of the most diverse people that I read. I don’t know what part of the country you live in, but here in SC a redneck is not necessarily something to aspire to. I think it is funny that you refer to yourself by such a name. It is always refreshing to read some one who does not take themselves too seriously. I love you and I hope you never change.

    congrats tom, and your acceptance speech was too long and we’ll have to cue you off the stage with some bad music playing over you. ps – thanks for the shoutout so i take it all back. you are the sally field of the blog world.

  3. Jade Reyner says:

    You’re more than welcome, although I have no idea what an ‘upper decker’ is – do I want to know??

  4. xtrememom says:

    Laughter is priceless and YOU sir, are worth your weight in gold. Thank you for choosing me to shine on amongst your brightness.

  5. mollytopia says:

    Congratulations Tom! You deserve this award – that lawn post still makes me laugh : ). Thank you so much for including me in your list of most recently followed blogs. I’m honored and flattered beyond words. You’re awesome – keep up the great work!

  6. Your awesomeness is so very deserving of this award! Being recognized is stupendous, I am so happy you were recognized. I am also very grateful you have thought to pass this on to me.

    Now I must ask you, where on the equator did you swim?

  7. bossymoksie says:

    Congrats! It’s about time!

  8. Congrats! Thanks for the mention, although you’re right… i will decline because these awards are like chain letters. That said, I almost shit my pants laughing at #2.

    • I admire you strict adherence to your principals sir. I absolutely expected no less. Knowing I affected your bowels is far more rewarding than watching you perpetuate a chain letter.

      Keep Rocking
