The Premio Dardo

Speed Force has been selected for the Premio Dardo (“Dart Award” in Spanish). The Premio Dardo is awarded by other bloggers and “is designed to recognize unique voices and visions on the Web as well as to promote fraternization amongst bloggers of all sorts.”

Premio Dardo: I Entrega de Premios, Best Blog Darts Thinker

Speed Force was honored by Matt of Groovy Superhero. Thanks, Matt!

So now I have to choose five blogs to give the award to — it’s basically like a chain letter or tagging meme. The blogs I’d like to pass it along to are:

I was intrigued by the concept of a self-propelled award, and did some digging into its history over at K-Squared Ramblings in case anyone’s interested

Speed Force Wins Project Fanboy Award

The Project Fanboy Award for Website ExcellenceI just found out that Speed Force won the October 2008 Project Fanboy Award! (That explains the traffic I was getting from them last week!)

I remember the first ever website award I got was for the “Site of the Week” award from what was then called Jonah Weiland’s Comic Book Resources. A lot of fan sites would give out awards back in the late 1990s, and then it sort of fell out of fashion. It’s cool that there are sites still doing it — and it’s cool to have actually been honored by one!

Thanks to whoever nominated Speed Force for the award, and thanks to the Project Fanboy staff!
