Thepublicblogger Awards – a Celebration of Community

Coming New Year’s Eve 2013
The Neighborhood’s Season-Ending Show: 2013 Thepublicblogger Awards 

Inaugural Awards Show {original air date May 2013}



Ladies & Gentlemen, Readers & Writers, special guests, old friends, nominees and the entire blogger community. Welcome to inaugural ThepublicAwards –  a Celebration of Community.

You are now inside the world of my imagination. Imagine it is a beautiful summer’s eve, and we are gathered along  a spectacular shore. The moonlight beams off the ocean’s water, granting light upon a majestic pavilion, where the evening’s entertainment is where you will enjoy. The air is crisp and you can smell the ocean breeze. Although you have never been here before, you know this is a place full of love and peace.

Tonight, is a celebration of community. We celebrate what brings us together, but even inside my mind, we never forget what can tear us apart.

Kendall awards (1)Hope you are enjoying the show and taking the time to relax and absorb the performances and the winning posts. Remember where you are. A slight breeze blew in from the ocean, and has brought a little chill. But you are still warm and safe, as tiki torches are being lighted all around the pavilion, giving the stage a true island feel.

And with that, it is a pleasure to introduce to you, from Cartegan, Spain, with their unique and distinct sound S’ENS performing Blues Soul.

pshawMy name is James Pattishaw, but I think most of you know me as P-Shaw. I want to thank you all so much for your time, your true opinion, and support of not only Kendall, but myself and the              P – Shaw Productions company as well. We see the growth in us as artist because of the love and support we so greatly feel. Matching a story board with cinematic music allows the audience to travel with us, as you  understand exactly where the writer and artist are trying to go. We cannot make it in this business without you. You all mean so much to us. Thank You.

  1. Ever since you started following my blog i kept wondering why ur blog name is thepublicblogger,now i understand the whole concept and idea behind your blog name and its aim and purpose.
    My inputs for this event are
    1) Mentioning the amateur bloggers (it will be a sort of encouragement for them and welcoming them to the community)
    2) some other hobbyist blogs other that literary should be considered(Artist,Crafts,Food etc)
    3) Nominations for unique bloggers.
    4) Some science and technology related blog
    I am a Microbiology Lecturer from India and i maintain two blogs which you are following and the other is,so in that way i would love to see some Biology,Science related blog’s and nominations.
    Thanks for being a part of wordpress and glad to have you around.
    Best Wishes. 🙂

    • This was the inaugural event. Didn’t really know what we were doing then (big smile) but so good to know that it has stood the test of time. New Year’s Eve 2015 will represent the 4th Annual. We will take your suggestions to heart. Thank you so very much for spending time in The Neighborhood. Oh, and by the way, when time permits, check out the other two Awards Show and I would love your suggestions after viewing all 3. Trying to make each event bigger and better than the one before.

  8. Good Morning Sweet Kendall,

    Thank you for following my blog HappinessHeals! Gratitude Dance! To show my appreciation for your time and attention here is a personalized affirmation written by me to celebrate you.

    I, Kendall, love to inspire people to create big goals and thrive for them daily. I have a wonderful sense of humour that helps me conquer my fears and accomplish my dreams. I have an open mind that loves to learn, expand and grow. I challenge myself daily by changing the habits I have so that I am proactive in every area of my life. I read books that inspire me to live my highest ideals daily through my thoughts, perceptions and actions. I am a delightful child of the Universe and the Universe loves being actualized by me.

    I, Stephanie, am inspired by you following my blog. You are sharing your heart with the world and it is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. I Love You. :~)


    • I, Kendall, am speechless. Thank you, Stephanie, for your warm, fun, kind and sincere affirmation for me. Take out the word ‘perfect’ (perfect self) and I whole-heartedly accept. Thank you for bringing YOU to the neighborhood. We are glad you are here. And I am proud to be a part of yours.


  9. Hello, Mr. Person, happy Bastille Day. The Filmbell organization wishes to thank you for ‘following’ our young site (although we acknowledge no followers, only our teachers). We wish you continuing success in your own fine endeavors.

    We have ambitions for We believe the site, and its inherent aims, can become important, and that it will remain online for many years to come, coming to its fruition.

    We also encourage you to, rather sooner, have yourself a look at our debut online (non-app) book, Being a promotional experiment by our group, this major publication may have but a ‘limited edition’ in its current online form, and we encourage you to read it while it’s hot.

    Incidentally, our antivirus program has blocked some content within this site. Maybe it’s just a banner ad, but it might be worth your checking out.

    Filmbell’s best to you, Kendall, and keep on. Our encouragement goes likewise to the online producers represented on this page, as well as those not represented, whatever your opinions, concerns and viewpoints. As a visitor of thousands of blogs per annum, Mr. Person, you surely realize that humanity’s freedom of speech and expression remains, and shall always remain, our world’s crowning glory.

    Incidentally, dear sir, there is no need to post this comment on your site, as it’s more in the nature of private gratitude for your interest. It’s also lengthy and self-publicizing, ha ha. We have no objection to its publication, however, and thanks again.
