“One Lovely Blog Award”!!!

I am honored to receive the nomination for “One Lovely Blog Award” from Joyness Sparkles!

While there is structure to a blogger’s formal receipt of nomination for this award (thank the blogger who nominated you, nominate 15 blogs & share 8 interesting facts about yourself), each blogger gives a unique flare to the experience. I decided to:

1) Write a rhyme to thank Joyness Sparkles!

2) Make a short video listing the prescribed 8 interesting facts about myself, and

3) Provide hyperlinks to 15 blogs I nominate, along with an explanation of what they mean to me

Biocadence provides me with joy and with drive.
It fuels me to read, to write, and to strive.
I hope to expose, to incense… to shine light,
encouraged by comments, by followers… by “likes”.

But what makes me blush; warms my heart to the core?
Receipt through tradition: “One Lovely Blog Award”!!!
Dear Joyness Sparkles, so sure to perform.
She’s fancy and classy… elegant in her form!!!

With delight and a wink, and in true shout-out fun:
she sparkled her Joyness, in bright shining sun.
So what will this humbling, sweet honor spawn?
What fun do I share here on wordpress.com?

A tickle, a poem, a rhyme as it seems:)…
Etiquette will require the following themes:
Torch passing to blogs: a count of fifteen,
and sharing of myself : 8 interesting things.


I nominate the following blogs:

1 & 2: “One Powerful Blog” would be the way to describe the first 2 blogs I nominate. Tim Ferriss and Gary Vaynerchuk are wildly successful. When it comes down to it, these two blogs have had the largest impression on me:

The Blog of Tim Ferriss

Gary Vaynerchuk

3: The next blog is aesthetically beautiful and calming. It’s about yoga, joy, and finding peace in simple activity. The writer is a self-proclaimed mat-hugger and the stunning model in the photos:


4: After 30 years as a vegetarian, I did not expect to enjoy a blog written by a butcher! The Ethical Butcher focuses on connection to the farm, the animal, and the life-giving energy that animals gift us. Ensuring proper treatment of animals he butchers, he gives thanks and honors a form of magic that we take for granted:

5: The following blog is written by an ultra-runner and nature lover. The author threads lines of poetic prose, inviting you into the enchanting world that he sees. His truth is found in connection with the visceral, with nature, and with a collective memory. One wonders: is this understanding possible without a 50 mile run under my belt? This is a brilliant translation of a language found in the instinctive process of remembering ancient wisdom:

The Jasmine Dialogues

6: Woooooh Nelly, comedian alert! My husband shared that he’d found a video blog by a young lady whose behavior reminded him of me when I get really silly and F-R-E-E! Jenna Marbles publishes a comic video every Wednesday. WARNING: not for viewing with your children. If cursing makes you uncomfortable, you may not enjoy this video blog. I recommend expecting a raw, un-restricted comic purge from the personal computer of a very creative young lady. Relax and let the laughs roll:


7: Written by a triathlete named Tammy, this blogger shares recipes, fitness strategies, travel experiences, and workout schedules. I have never seen this woman without a smile on her face:


8: This is a relatively new blog I heard about on the Sarah & Vinnie morning show! The writer is a businesswoman, marathoner, beauty, and mentor to the next generation of women. She advocates activity by sharing her personal stories and inspirations. Go girl- “Hurry Up”; don’t stop!!!!:

Hurry Up!

9: This blog features a family that has minimized their use of energy and resources while living with fresh style and evident quality of life! Prepare to be impressed!:

The Zero Waste Home

10: This video blogger takes us into his home and shows us the strategies he’s implemented to prepare for Peak Oil. Brilliant, practical, and clean in presentation, this blog is incredibly instructive!:

Mr. Energy Zcar

 11-15: I am focused on using fewer resources and less energy. I wholeheartedly believe that quality of life only increases as we simplify, so long as we have our needs met. These five bloggers are spreading the cheer they find in frugality, homesteading, and joining the land:

Sustainable Sweet & Savory Gourmet

The Simplicity Project

The Frugal Girl

About Biocadence

Hello! I’m Annie Tichenor, Founder of Biocadence, LLC (www.biocadence.wordpress.com). I hope to ignite a path toward over-consumption recovery, global sibling interconnectedness, and quality-of-life design. A few years ago, I began measuring my impact on the environment. Since then I’ve analyzed my energy-use habits while researching the impact of over-consumption on the global hunger epidemic, global relations and global quality of life. This process has driven me to notice the disparity between my environmental impact in the past and my footprint goal for the future. My drive to change my own habits has evolved into a desire to share my strategies. I crafted the Biocadence Recipe and the Impact/Disturbance (ID) Model, to illustrate the critical role of behavioral sustainability in the sustainable lifestyle transition process. Biocadence is focused on increasing the accessibility of sustainable living and facilitating the rhythm of humanity in harmony with nature. The vision of Biocadence is to build a community of environment-lovers who come together to leverage each other’s knowledge and celebrate sustainable living accomplishments.

    Wonderful post! I LOVE your video!

    Thank you so much for the great poem, that is such a treasure, how long did it take you to come up with it? 🙂

    Also, thank you for a few new blogs to follow…so excited for new reading material!

  2. MyCadence says :

    Hi Joyness! Glad you loved the video #BabyDanceInstructorsRock!!!!

    The basics of the poem came to me quite quickly with the help of the cadence in the poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. I couldn’t kick it out of my mind’s ear, so I embraced it instead! But polishing it to suit the standards of a true Jane Austen fan… that took some more work…:)!

    I have a feeling you and I will continue connecting, as we motor forward! Happy weekend to you!
