The Sunshine Award


By Jueseppi B.





Dear Kitty. Some blog, has been so kind to nominate TheObamaCrat™, for The Sunshine Award.

I started following Dear Kitty about a year ago, and find her blog a much needed escape from my world of politics.

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart Dear Kitty, for passing The Sunshine Award forward to TheObamaCrat™.



Here are the rules:

Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
Link to the person who nominated you.
Answer 10 questions about yourself.
Nominate 10 bloggers.
Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.


As always, I am going to break the rules.

I’m nominating many more than 10.
I don’t have 10 questions to answer about myself….keeps me mysterious!
I find when I comment on fellow bloggers blogs, my comments go straight to spam, so notifying them via their blogs won’t work.


My MANY nominees are:




Thank you once again Ms. Dear Kitty.








Paying Forward The 2013 Most Influential Blogs


By Jueseppi B.






A Special thank you to E A M Harris……for paying forward The Most Influential Blog Award to TheObamaCrat.Com™.


Allow me to introduce Ms. E A M Harris……








I am a reader and a writer. My aim on this blog is to post about literature.

There are books I love and a few that bore me (I won’t blog about those).

There are poems and stories I write (but I won’t blog about them very often).

Literature connects with daily life, has a place in society, has a mass of academic theory. I’ll write about these things occasionally.

From time to time I write down my observations of people and happenings I meet. I’ll include some of these – they are the raw material of all creative endeavor.



Stop by her blog: E A M Harris, for amazing post on poetry and authors works. Thank you again Ms. Harris.

There are no rules for this award except you MUST pay it forward, and that means, sometime in the next 6 months, you “should” chose the blogs you deem worthy of your label of The Most Influential Blog Of 2012, to you.
That’s it. Only rule.

The White House Blog


Gun Control Now USA

The Good, The Bad, The Worse

My Picks For 2012′s Most Influential Blogs…Part Deux

By Jueseppi B.






Yesterday I got the idea for My Picks For 2012′s Most Influential Blogs after visiting the blog of  The Blissful Adventurer. He has a post on his amazing blog entitled “The Most Influential Blogs of 2012“. And I thought what a wonderful idea.


I posted my version of 2012′s Most Influential Blogs and it was chock full of the blogs I find inspirational and informative. Wouldn’t you know it, because I’m 175 years old and starting to get senile, I missed a few of my favorite bloggers and their blogs.


So here we are at 2012′s Most Influential Blogs Part Deux!!


The Rules:

There are no rules for this award except you MUST pay it forward, and that means, sometime in the next 6 months, you “should” chose the blogs you deem worthy of your label of The Most Influential Blog Of 2012, to you.

That’s it. Only rule.


Now For MY Most Influential Blogs Of 2012:

Each blog chosen by me, has in some small or huge way influenced me in some way, be it by inspiration or by information.




The Light – Bearer

I do sincerely hope I didn’t forget anyone this time, if I did forget somebody……I apologize ahead of time.

Since this is NOT an award, there is no guilt associated with accepting. Just enjoy.


I wish all the blogs and their owners & families a wonderfully joyous KwanzaaChristmas & Hanukkah & a healthy, happy & prosperous New Year.










Two New Awards: Thank You SilentlyHeardOnce

By Jueseppi B.







The ObamaCrat.Com™ has been nominated for TWO awards by Ms. Silently from the blog “silentlyheardonce”. I am forever grateful to Ms. Silently. Her blog is one of my escape blogs I sneak off to when politics gets kinda thick. Stop by her blog and feel the raw passion of her poetry.


The first award I have been given is the Commenter Award.


I am grateful to you for nominating me for this award. The Commenter Award is a little different from the most awards. Instead of awarding others for their blogs, you will be giving recognition to those who comment on yours. They are the ones that make your blog what it is. They are the ones that take their time to read and feel what you posts, and offer you the reward of their comments.


The nominations are the easiest part. You should nominate the six bloggers who comment frequently on your blog. How do you know who does this most often? This is a good question.





You will find your Top Recent Commenter’s on your site stats page on the bottom, right corner. If you do not see this, click on the Screen Options at the top, right corner and be sure that “comments” is checked. If you are good about responding to every comment, then you will be the first one in the list. The next six commenter’s, on the list will be the ones you nominate and pass this award onto. But wait! You may nominate one more person. This person can either be a brand new commenter on your blog, the very last comment you have received (most Recent), or the one who has posted your most favorite comments. This seventh nomination is your choice, but please do tell us why you have chosen them as your seventh.


Here are my Top Commenter’s and I truly appreciate their support:


V. Lyn




The nominated recipients are asked to:


~To thank and Link-back to your nominator;


~Nominate 7, 6, or fewer (or more) other blogs that you enjoy to receive this award as well;


~Post a comment on each of your nominees blogs with a link to your page for the details;


~Paste the Award image somewhere on your blog, if so desired;


~And, continue blogging all your beautiful thoughts, suggestions, and musings. More readers are coming!


Here are my nominees:



New Blogger Award Part 4

By Jueseppi B.





I have met some stunningly magnificent people since I took my blog private and decided to run it alone. I have received two awards in my short time as a private blogger. And I can not tell you the joy receiving those two awards brought to my mind. I noticed that awards for us bloggers carry some requirements that might be a bit overwhelming to new bloggers, so I came up with this idea….a New Blogger Award.



In this 4th edition of the New Blogger Award, I will select a number of new bloggers I think deserve to have motivation, acceptance and praise for the work they are doing. I have but three requirement for acceptance of this award…
1).  That your blogging experience be fairly new, or fairly unknown.
2). That you pass this award forward to other new bloggers that you discover who impress you as a fellow blogger.
3).  That you place the New Blogger Award on your blog site….in either of the two versions available.




One version is listed above and the other version is listed below…your choice depending on your blog layout and style.




There are no required number of bloggers you have to pass this award on to…and you don’t have to do much except continue to blog, and award this to those you admire, respect and love as bloggers.


NOW…My nominations for the New Blogger Award:



Adventures for the Faint of Heart……

Writing is an adventure for the faint of heart, at least in the sense of dodging explosions and beating up weird kids. Maybe you don’t have your driver’s license yet. Or your veins don’t bulge with testosterone. But writing’s not for the weak, either — you’ve got to keep learning, keep typing, and keep pushing. Sometimes, that means you need someone to tell you to keep going.

And that’s what I’m here for.



The Dainty Damsel…….

Dainty, dumb, distressed Damsel penning down her daily on-goings in life. She hopes people will find her stupid life interesting. Cracked from head to toe and a bantering fool. She lives each day on one theme – Believe In Yourself And Follow Your Dreams, One Day They Will Come True. Cheers to all who visit her site !

The Dainty Damsel is a personal blog of a 19 year old girl, Safaa Tasneem, hailing from east India. She loves art, music, literature and is a fashion fanatic. She likes penning down her thoughts and experiences and sharing them with people around her. She hopes people to find this blog of her somewhat good in some way, at least.



God’s creation through my eyes…….

3 years ago, I posted one of my pictures and someone commented that I should capture the beauty of God’s creation and show it to the world. So, 3 years later, I’m up for the challenge!

I’ll try my best to take a picture everyday of whatever gets my attention… and publish it on the same day! I’ll be using a simple Canon PowerShot SD that I have for like 5 years and no computer editing! And I’m not a professional photographer, I just like to create memories…

I hope I’ll get it done because everyday we face the beauty of God’s creation but most of the time we don’t see it…




The Poetically Incorrect.……

I like writing poetry, prose and fun tid bits. It is just something that comes naturally to me and I enjoy doing. If its in my destiny, someday I’d like to get published.
Hope you’ll enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

Carpe Diem



Niltsi’s Spirit……..

Welcome to those pages showing what’s around me. I live in a small town in northern Ontario, Canada. I am at this time 64 years old and into graphics, photography, painting and wood carving. I love the great outdoors, but at this time in my life I am quite limited to a few short outings around my place. Some good friends take me out for drives once in a while and give me time to explore some areas and take pictures.

This blog is about the world, my world, my family, my loves, my dear friends, the ones still here and the ones that have crossed over the abyss.
The world is where I spent my whole life trying to learn and understand.


365 Days……..

My name is Marianne Pettersson and my goal is to inspire people to live happier, more fulfilled and successful lives. For 365 days I’ll blog about life and how everyone can find their own inner balance and excel at what they do.

I look forward to your comments!
Marianne Pettersson
Accredited Life Coach since 2005



These bloggers are new, to me at least, and are deserving of this award. Please visit their blogs and give them your support. They are blogs I recommend and follow myself.


Well thats it’s for now. If I discover more new bloggers and their sites, I will be doing this again. The bloggersphere is the new media outlet for the future. We hold the attention of the planet, it is up to us to share truth, facts, insights into our world, and escape to our planet-mates from boredom.


“Keep Blogging!!”
