Creation of New Blog Award: The Candle Lighter Award

There are a number of blog/blogger awards. I began to think about my purpose for blogging. I mean the title of my blog reveals a lot about my mission: Believe Anyway. I have blogged before that I chose the title to remind myself to stay optimistic. My purpose is to light a candle in the darkness that envelopes us all at times. I want to lighten loads and light the way. I gravitate towards positive people and positive blogs.  I want to start a blog award that reflects my love for the positive in the blogosphere.

{To see a list of blogs that have been given The Candle Lighter Award Click on The Candle Lighter Award button on my header.}

I call my award The Candle Lighter Award. It is for blogs and bloggers that light a candle in the darkness with their blog. What does it mean? Whenever I see a post or blog that I think brings light to the world, I will put a copy of this post and give them The Candle Lighter Award. What does the recipient have to do to accept it? Just accept it and put the Candle Lighter Award badge from my blog onto their blog. Please put the link from this post about my creation of the award in a post on your blog so people can read about it.  What else do recipients have to do? Nothing. If they do think someone else is a Candle Lighter, they can surely give them the award anytime they want and as often as they want. [i'd love it if you could send me the links for the blogs you do find worthy of the award, because I'd love to see their blogs, too! But it isn't required]. Their is no limit to how many blogs you award The Candle Lighter Award to and no limit to how many times someone can receive it. But when you do, I ask that you use the link for this post.

Let’s set the blogging world ablaze with Candles for all the positive oriented blogs. The world needs joy and lots of it.

Why am I doing this? I think people that are going through the efforts to be positive and make the world better through their efforts and blogs deserve to be recognized. I am always looking for encouragement and ‘light’. I want my faith, my optimism, and my love for life to help to set the world ablaze. Hence: The Candle Lighter Award. I hope that you love this idea.

    P.S. Love the idea!! What a great way to honor fellow bloggers!

  3. I love it! :-) My favorite blogs are those that make a positive statement. They deserve to be recognized for being optimistic without fault!

    • Kate Kresse says:

      CB I so agree!!!! Pass it along to whomever you wish whenever you wish. No requirement. No minimum. No maximum. I’d love to know who you pass it along to so I can mention them on my page called The Candle Lighter Award.

  4. Northern Narratives says:

    Thank you so much for giving me The Candle Lighter Award.
    Merry Christmas.

  5. Thank you so much for the beautiful award. I have created a few like this myself as the “no strings” is a way to let other s know that their blog is amazing in and of itself, not just as a tool to create more connections (which is fine, but getting an award with no strings feels more like an award and not a ‘chain letter’). I am honored that you chose my blog to receive this beautiful creation of yours. Thank you.

    • Kate Kresse says:

      thanks! were you able to copy my photo and use it as a widget? I have never tried to create that for folks, and do not know whether it is working for people. I was inspired to do it with no strings because of a wise comment by a fellow blogger about a different award. Your blog deserves it. Hug the birthday puppy from me :-)

  6. Kathy says:

    I love it. Thank you!

  7. pix & kardz says:

    hi Kate – i appreciate your outlook on life, and your wonderful idea of creating the Candle Lighter award. not sure if you had a chance to read my reply to your comment. just to reiterate, it is certainly a worthy award and it is very kind of you to encourage your fellow bloggers around the blogosphere, and all of that just because of wanting to express appreciation. how cool is that.
     
    so i am honoured to be considered, and yet at the same time i am gratefully declining this award. thank you so much again! :)

  8. gwen07 says:

    Kate, you are too kind. You light the darkness with your goodness and your ‘believe anyway’ spirit.

    thanks,

  16. An award that calls for celebration. Thank you. It is an honor to receive awards that brings inspiration to others….even as a light on a world often covered with dark clouds. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  17. Debbie says:

    Kate – What a completely lovely idea! I haven’t received the award, but I read about it on Memories of Caleb. He is a light – as are you!
    I hope your Christmas was very merry – it sounds like it was, and I wish you a joy-filled New Year!
    Debbie

  18. Thanks Kate for creating this beautiful award to help recognize and encourage other bloggers. I was humbled when one of my blog followers, The Woman at the Well nominated me for this award. It could not have come at a more-needed time. Read about it in the article I posted today, “A Hope For More Than Human Tinsle Strength”. There are many bloggers who are united in sharing love, hope, peace, and joy with others, and I look forward to sharing this award with some of them. May you be blessed with Divine favor in this coming new year. Blessings, Connie

  19. JMishra says:

    I just received the Candle Lighter Award and I think it’s really an excellent idea. Not only from the standpoint of recognition, but also from the incentive it gives writers like me to keep striving to reach out and inspire. I’ll be watching for worthy blogs to pass it on to. Thanks so much!

    Kate…What a lovely award. jakesprinter nominated me for this award, and I followed his links to your blog to find out more about it! Such a uplifting, positive award…..thank you for starting it!

    • Kate Kresse says:

      You are so welcome! I wanted to bring recognition and affirmation to positive bloggers. Glad you received the award! Let me know if you want the original picture for your badge—Jake’s version is animated and my original is static. The static original is on my blog. Some prefer animated and some static.

  22. Kate, I was so touched and humbled when thewomanatthewell nominated me for this award. This was truly an affirmation of my desire to bring the light of God’s love to all those who read my blog. God Bless you for creating this award and encouraging bloggers to flood the internet with words that will uplift and bring hope. Thank you for making a difference…God’s abundant blessings to you!

  23. Kate, This is such a lovely award…thank you for starting it. I was offered it by Connie from A Hope From Today. I mentioned to Connie that when I first started my blog in April, my intention was to share “pages” I had made that had helped me through some difficult times….and that perhaps the ideas might help others. One of my first posts was based on the song “Be a light in my lantern” a song that I love by Josh Ritter. My “own” inspiration candle (that image is on the door of our family room) is on the bottom of that post. (link to that post: http://pocketperspectives.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/be-a-light-in-my-lantern/ ) And so I thank you sincerely for encouraging all of us to uplift and bring hope to each other. Another post you might like is “Hope comes from a large family,” using words by Maria, at enermazing. http://pocketperspectives.wordpress.com/2011/09/16/hope-comes-from-a-large-family/ And so…thank you again…warm smiles of encouragement and appreciation to you….Kathy

    • Kate Kresse says:

      what a wonderful blog you have created. I love your purpose and the concepts in your blog. I know the Josh Ritter song you are talking about. Sigh. It is SO lovely and inspirational. Blessings to you—and keep on being a light in the darkness.

  24. I hear you loud and clear Kate in all that you say! Nice of you to create such a special award. Namaste – attractionmagnets.Wordpress

    Hello Kate hows the Update? :)

    • Kate Kresse says:

      I did an update on the image—Nancy helped me to do it :-)

    • Kate Kresse says:

      Regarding the update: Refresh my memory, Jake…as I said, I updated the photo for the award with another blogger’s help–she adjusted the pixels, etc. So that is what I have in the links when I give out the award. Is that what you are referring to? You have been handing out the award to so many deserving blogs/bloggers–that is terrific! If you click on my page for The Candle Lighter Award you will see a ton of recipients. It has grown and spread—I do not think I am going to be able to have a complete list of all awardees…but I assume you are listing who you have handed them out to, too, right?

      • jakesprinter says:

        Very hard job now for you to manage the list of awardee i think , he,he
        it is spreading to fast ,Good luck to you ..ask me if you need help :)

        • Kate Kresse says:

          it is surprising and not surprising how fast it is spreading! Most people that receive it pass it on to almost every blog they follow. When you think about it, that isn’t surprising. Why? Positive people tend to gravitate towards other positive people, right? As a result, the progression is geometric :-)! Yesterday one of the bloggers I passed it along to gave the award to 55 bloggers!! I assume you are tracking all of the people you gave it out to, too, right?

    I just wanted to say how wonderful your award is, and I’m looking forward to following some of these links to read other Candle Light Award receivers.
    Thanks for putting sunshine and light into a world that can so easily slip into the shadows.

    • Kate Kresse says:

      You are welcome===what an absolutely lovely way to put it…the world can so easily slip into the shadows. That is why we need a LOT of Candle Lighter blogs—like yours :-)

  45. phylor says:

    PS: Would you mind if I draw attention to your blog and your award in a future blog I write? I think that there are folks out there who a) deserve the award and b) might like to nominate a blog they know of that fits your award well.
    My blog has been less than inspiring and uplifting of late, but I am trying to travel new paths, take new journeys, and would love to let folks know about your wonderful award. My blog is: phylors blog: chronic pain, life, and all that at http://phylor.wordpress.com (not looking for an award myself, just your permission to mention your blog :) )

    Kate — I have passed along my first candle lighter award — it was hard to choose who to hono(u)r first, but I picked Sunshine and Chaos (http://sunshineandchaos.wordpress.com) because of her inspirational quotes, kindness and thoughtfulness, her willingnes to discuss her own chronic illnesses and pass along resources to other folks.
    I wanted to let you know that I had passed along the award (I’m going to email the author and let her know) and I already have an idea who I will nominate next.
    Thanks again for the award, and openning up a new world for me to light my way through the shadows!

    Delightful to meet you Ms. Kate and learn of your “enlightening” Candle Lighter Award. Megtraveling just nominated another site & blogger, breathelighter & Debra, a dear friend of mine. I am simply so excited for Debra to be honored with this award. I remember sitting with Debra when she shared with me her interest in and creation of her blog. Months later, she prodded me to jump into blogosphere too so here I am only at two months old! You all are veterans in my view.

    What I really want you to know is how I value the inspiration I’m reading in your posts to be positive and encouraging. Sometimes (like now) I feel stalled in writing because I’m not in that mental or emotional place of lightness. Often I wait for the match to light my own candle so when I do post I wish my messages to share warm energy into this arena.

    Now it is most certainly about Debra and breathelighter–a well deserved award, indeed!

    ~Ellen

    • Kate Kresse says:

      Ellen–Thank you so much for sharing this story about Debra; I am delighted to know her and you, too. Isn’t the blog world a wondrous place? It is bringing so many people together. The lightness comes and goes for all of us. Sometimes the vagaries of life blows out one of our lights. That is why community is so important. We can bring the light back to each other. Blessings to you today—Kate

      • Ellen says:

        Thank you for your generous response to me, the novice. I learn more about the blogging community while being humbled at the writing talents of so many. From such clever word “plays” giving me the laugh-outloud moments to the pain shared by others with pains so descriptive to pull moments of hushed empathy flowing from my soul; sometimes I comment, other times I have no idea what to say. I suppose this is what blogosphere is all about.
        I will take your words to heart and remember that we need others here to relight our occasional extinguished candle. And so many generous bloggers want us to all be successful. Hooray!
        Now, you’ve extended to me a real encouragement–the honor of the Candle Lighter Award directly from the originator. I am speechless…or is it wordless? Thank you most sincerely, Ellen

        • Kate Kresse says:

          You’re welcome, Ellen. Speechless–wordless—but definitely not hugless. I have the same reaction you described as I travel through the wonderful blogosphere. Stay encouraged, write what’s in your heart. God bless you—kate

    I’ve awarded a joint candle lighter award to two very special bloggers. They are an inspiration to each other and to so many. They light candles of creativity, inspiration, and both received nominations to the recent WEGO health activist blog awards.
    And, I hope you don’t mind, but I added to this post a candle lighter award for comments. There is a another very special person who, despite her crippling, agonizing pain, leaves encouraging comments, her posts to facebook often are inspiring quotes and links to encouraging and positive websites and blogs. Her own pain makes regular blog entries difficult, but her postings are searingly honest, and she expresses with strong words and poetry her own fears, and experiences. Her comments and facebook activities continue to provide inspiration for so many others I thought that the candle she lights for others (even if it’s not necessarily through a blog) in her encouragement and support deserved recognition. Sorry if I overstepped the spirit and goal of these awards!

      That is perfect. I think your latest award recipients are definitely deserving. Good for you for passing it on. You absolutely did NOT overstep. You did great!!

      • phylor says:

        Thanks, Kate. I wasn’t sure if those who light candles through their inspiration outside the original concept would fit into the project.
        Thanks for your encouragement. The 7 X 7 is still a work in progress.

          No problem whatsoever. My concept was to bring recognition to folks ho light up the world. that is the key! No pressure whatsoever on the 7 X 7. You are amazing.

    Thank you so much for doing this. There s alot of negativity in the world and anything we can do to make this old world a better place is wonderful. I’m also a big believer in Pay It Forward. I think everyone should be encouraged to watch this movie. It may be an older movie but the message is still there and should be heeded by more in these trying times!
