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 at ourselves or life—and restore our buoyancy in a troubled world. They champion freedom of expression.
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.
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. read the rest and nominate your favorites
