Yours truly, Paulcoholic, has received a blogging award! I am trying to be humble as this has never happened before, which isn’t too shocking as seeing that Sober Catholic is a niche blog that doesn’t fit too well into many of the categories that the big annual blogging awards have. And in the things that I’m told I’m good at, like writing, I’m easily outdone by the usual winners, so it’s all good.
Awards are all politics, anyway. LOL LOL LOL!!!
Anyway, the award is this:
I now have to award this to other bloggers. It was supposed to be 7, but Adrienne amended the rules. Praise her!
So, this goes to the other Catholic recovery (or related) bloggers known to me, plus 2 special ones. They now have to pass it on to other bloggers. “Paulcoholic’s Codicil to Adrienne’s Amendment of the Super-Commenter Award Rules” states that you needn’t pass it along right away. No time limit, this isn’t a seasonal award.
In no particular order:
Scott at Sober Nuggets , where he provides: ..simply a space for recovering alcoholics and addicts to share the joys, struggles and realities of a sober life. .
Penitent Jeff over at Conversion for Life | A Catholic Journey. While not a blog focusing on recovery, he does write about issues and topics that are of great relevance to anyone in sobriety, or for that matter, anyone who wishes to grow in their Catholic Faith.
Terry of Abbey-Roads and Abbey-Roads2 . Not a recovery blogger, but a fine Catholic blogger. Were it not for my marital vocation, his might have been an interesting path to consider. (Monastic life, committed celibacy and art and writing.) He links to me, and admired my series on St. Benedict’s Ladder of Humility .
Now, for the special ones. Awards can be bribery, at least I say they can. For these two, it’s to get them to blog more:
Beniamino Il Cacciatore Umile better known to me and 4marks friends as “Colorado Ben” or, the “Mountain Monk”. If his blog gets to be as spiritual and profound as his posts in the 4marks fora were (especially in “The Cave”), then he’d be a grand member in the Catholic blogosphere. C’mon, dude, blog!!! Oh, yeah, he blogs at: Leidolfr, the Lead Wolf .
And last, and most definitely not least, this award goes to Rose, my lovely wife.
She blogs at God’s Merciful Love, a blog about the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. It also showcases her photography, namely artistic impressions of Catholic themes. God’s Merciful Love is a companion site to God’s Merciful Love social network . (Rose is contemplating a name change for her blog.) The social network is a site we established to help get Catholics together to discuss the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. We promise “Faith-filled Fellowship & Fun!”
This was fun. My first intentionally silly post.Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)"The Stations of the Cross for Alcoholics"
