The H.U.G. Award

This afternoon when I went to give my friend Jueseppi  an award, I discovered that he had given me the H.U.G. Award. I am touched after reading what all the H.U.G. Award stands for. Hope is essential in today’s world and we should all be spreading hope. Thank you so much Jueseppi. To know that you feel this way about me and my blog is an honor for sure.

First the particulars of The H.U.G. Award:

Hope Unites Globally – HUG Award Guidelines

  10. Well deserved and well done – very entertaining although it seems rather complicated? You listed me!!! Thanks – that was a bit of a shock!

    Comment by jmgoyder | March 16, 2012 | Reply

    • not too bad jmgoyder. just copy the whole thing like I did and change the first paragraph to say thank you to me instead of jueseppi like I did and add your nominations at the bottom.
      And then the only thing you have to do is when you put the image on your blog, use the links she gave you. “by simply copying and pasting the following image URL into an Image widget: http://hopesfortoday.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/hug-award1.png. As the link URL for the image, please inserthttp://ahopefortoday.com/2012/01/14/hope-unites-globally-hug-award-guidelines/.” so that when anyone should click on the image on your sidebar, it will take them to the original post about the award. IF you need help, let me know. 🙂
