Brilliant Weblog

Yesterday, fellow blogger Closetalk left a comment on my posting last Sunday telling me that he's given me a "Brilliant Weblog Award" for content and design :-). It turns out that this award is a meme which is passed on by individual bloggers to other bloggers. Looking back to the people who gave Closetalk his award, I discovered that the rules of this meme are as follows:
The purpose of the prize is to promote as many blogs as possible in the blogosphere. The rules are as follows:
  1. When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link back to them.
  2. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
  3. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with 'Brilliant Weblog'.
  4. Show a picture of those who awarded you and those you give the prize to (optional)
  5. And then pass it on!
Many thanks to Closetalk for nominating me :-), it's much appreciated :-)).

I confess though, I'm not exactly sure who to pass on the award to, so I'm going to have to think about it. Meanwhile here's some food for thought. If everyone follows the rules and passes the award on to seven new bloggers, then I reckon that in ten steps well over 200 million blogs would have the award. I'm sure that's significantly in excess of the number of active blogs in the blogosphere!
