(the inaugural) Thepublicblogger Awards – a Celebration of Community


Inaugural Awards Show {original air date May 2013}

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



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.

Playing for you now, from Oslo Norway Drumma Battalion.  From Cartegan, Spain S’ENS is here. From Portland, Oregon international photographer, Leah Olson is here.

Crystal for awardsGood evening everyone, My name is Crystalkay Farrington and I have the pleasure and  honor of working with my uncle in producing the promotional videos.  As most of you are aware, my uncle is passionate about the plight of our still suffering Veteran soldiers.

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.

  3. Kendall, great job. You have such a variety on your blog. Can you tell me about your Donate button? Can I get one of those or do I need to be a non-profit? Not that anyone would donate but I’m curious, Curious George. Lol.


    • Hello gardenlilie – My apologies. You asked me this question before and I thought I responded. All of the information is available at paypal, including a link to the WordPress donate buttons. Much success, my dear friend.

  4. And this is why I LOVE your blog, neighborhood, and presentations Kendall!! I do always feel like I have been ‘somewhere’ and as you know, that is very helpful for me being in battle with depression and agoraphobia. I was truly blessed by our Father when he brought us to know one another. So, thank you for all you do for so many wonderful artists.

    I know they appreciate you too! And I just love me some P-Shaw! very talented XOXO Now I need to go listen to the music!

    Many Blessings,
    *Catherine* XOXO 🙂
