I just received a a Kreativ Blogger award from artist and art licensing superstar Tara Reed. Thank you Tara!
Tara and I had our first connection as a result of our SEO For Artists program – we had a blast working together on a training call for her art licensing folks. She is amazing – I really recommend you go visit her empire over at Art Licensing Info.
Here is some background info on Kreativ Blogger from Tara’s Post blog post:
Kreativ Blogger originated in May 2008 in a post by Huldas Verden. The Kreativ Blogger award comes with the following requirements:
- You must thank the person who has given you the award.
- Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
- Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
- Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
- Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
- Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
- Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated. (Note – like Tara I cheated just a little with this one by using Twitter to notify!)
So – here goes….
7 things Of Interest About Moi
- I lived in Australian small towns for the first 8 years of my life. At night we often used to lie on the back lawn and watch the stars and look for satellites – it was fun!
- I’d love to own a Tesla Roadster
- I awoke to art when I saw one of Van Gogh’s self portraits in the Musee D’Orsey in 1996. He moved in front of my eyes – really!
- My favorite moments in life all involve nature. Like camping in Glacier national park or listening to the ocean at night in Wailea
- I live for excellent green tea – and prefer it served in nice bone china.
- I feel most at home with people who work with their hands
- I have probably driven about 350,000 miles on various parts of the planet

Thats it! I have played my role in the great Kreativ Blogger drama – now back to more seriously fun art stuff 🙂
Love it! Except where did you find your cool Kreativ blogger badge – I have Badge Envy! Could you really see the satellites or was your dad pulling your leg?
Your seven things have left me knowing you a bit better and with even more questions!
Tara Reed – "empire" founder 🙂
I found the badge over at Raw Epicurean http://rawepicurean.net/2009/03/18/kreativ-blogge… however there is some evidence that this is not the original logo. I like it though – glad that you have envy!
And yes – you could really see the satellites! We did not have a television until I was about 10 years old so we used to do all sorts of fun stuff in the evenings. I think it left me poorly-adjusted to life in this television-ruled age though. But that is another story 🙂
You could do a youtube about your art licensing empire – based on "The Empire Strikes Back"! You will have to pay me licensing royalties on the idea though 🙂
Thank you for the Nomination! Quite an honor! I used your wonderful badge! I like paying it forward…check out my blog http://www.denisevasquez.blogspot.com
Together WE CAN make a difference!

Wow, Congrats Daniel!!
I love reading your newsletter and checking out the great info on your site.
This distinction is well deserved!
Wow, thank you so much Daniel! I am honoured!
Now I have to think about two lists of seven things….. 🙂 And I guess I can't nomimate you or Tara anymore?!
That is a great question Moshe. I think you have to find new people which means that Tara and I are black-listed 🙂 Looking forward to reading your 7 interesting things!
Here we go… after lots of thoughts and deliberations:
I was on my way to bed when I thought, I'll check just one more email… And here I am, not sleeping!!
Thank you so much for the nomination, I am touched – and suprised!
It'll probably take me a few days to Pay It Forward, but I'm looking forward to making my nominations. 😉
Hi Daniel, thanks so much! I have posted it up as well: http://juliatrops.com/blog/2010/03/19/kreativblog…
