BTW - You have been nominated for the Fifth Annual Paul Revere Award
Two hundred forty-one years ago, ordinary citizens across the American colonies printed pamphlets and distributed their passionate words to shape public opinion and galvanize the independence movement.While i don't exactly feel like Paul Revere, I do hope I help "feed our soul—who make us laugh about ourselves or life—and restore our buoyancy in a troubled world. They champion freedom of expression."
These colonial pioneers faced violent suppression from a powerful ruling class but their simple pamphlets proved to be more powerful. Today’s bloggers are the modern-day offspring of the American Revolution’s pamphleteers.
The brave and resolute men and women behind those blogs hold down jobs and raise their families or selflessly provide care for loved ones. Unfortunately, they are often overlooked. They possess an unwavering dedication to inform and warn their readers.
In 2013 I decided to honor bloggers whose work was filled “with the breathings of their heart.” I refer to the bloggers whose sites are small in comparison to the “corporate” blogs that have an army of writers, resources and capital. These are the good people who feed our soul—who make us laugh about ourselves or life—and restore our buoyancy in a troubled world. They champion freedom of expression.
I chose Paul Revere as the icon for the award because he was an American patriot whose legendary “Midnight Ride” to warn the colonists of Massachusetts before the historic battles at Lexington and Concord played a vital role in America’s struggle to gain independence from Britain.
Paul Revere was not born to wealth—he was an ordinary man who lived an extraordinary life. Revere was a patriot, a businessman, an involved citizen, and a popular and well-respected member of his community.
An obituary in the Boston Intelligence solemnly noted, "Seldom has the tomb closed upon a life so honorable and useful."
Just waiting for that fat blog money to come rolling in!
