Brenda's Awards


Congratulations! You have reached the part of my website that is the cause for quite a bit of joy for me and that is ... my recognition awards! 

I understand completely how much time, effort, expertise and yes, even tears, that go into making a really great website. I also know that it is something that at times can be rarely applauded. 

It feels good to hear "well-done"! Even that your website is something that makes someone smile. Is entertaining as well as well informed on subjects! It also is great to hear as well, that your website is considered to be,  on the whole, a great contribution to this thing we call the world wide web.

In keeping with this theme, I have developed quite a few different styles of awards.  Well over .. uh- I lost count... perhaps 90.  Plus I plan to develop more as time progresses. I have made awards that are based on as many varied themes as I could think of. 

They are relatively easy to win. 

Since there are so many to choose from, do feel free to enter and submit your site as many times as you would like to. For as many awards as you feel it merits. I have placed the "rules" here for everyone to read. 

Yes, unfortunately I need to have rules. 

Please read them & if your site qualifies (trust me, most likely it will!) please proceed to the form below. 

Please fill it out and send it to me, along with your address for your web page. Along with a banner. If you have no banner, I will gladly create one for you & send along to you to have.  I will gladly work with Web TV users (used to be one myself, in fact that is what I was using when I first started creating websites even!) on trans-loading by placing a link for you to load from. I  plan to personalize each award to site name or to the name of the site owner. That may change, as from time to time, I have been without internet access. I ask only that you link the gif or gifs back to this page. Thanks! 



*****Please read my conditions first.*****


Then afterwards if your site qualifies, please take a look and choose the award (one per form). Then please proceed down to the bottom &  fill out the form featured below and send it to me with your web address & website banner. Along with site description. As well as why you feel your site should be awarded. I will review the site and if it is indeed a winner I will shortly send out your choice or choices of awards. Feel free to enter your site or sites as often as you'd like for the various awards. Please keep checking back to see if I have new styles which your site could win. 

 Thanks for your interest and Good Luck!


First and foremost ALL SITES I VISIT MUST BE IN THE ENGLISH SPOKEN/WRITTEN LANGUAGE!!! If I cannot read them, I cannot judge the website fairly. I have gone ahead and awarded a few sites which have applied even though I had no clue what I was visiting. If you have a site which is from a different country other than English speaking ones. Please provide a page where the language is English. Thanks! All sites I review and award MUST be family safe and child friendly. I ask that all sites place a limit on foul language as much as possible. I would prefer that the site be totally free of foul language.  ALSO No racist remarks! No off-color racist jokes!! I also, myself, do not care for jokes that have a sexual nature to them.  Which brings us to condition #2.....

2. No risque material! By risque I mean no jokes, remarks or comments concerning genitalia or any style or content that can be deemed sexually provocative. No references to a man's sex organ, or women's breasts, or women's genitalia or any comments, mpegs, wavs, jpegs, or voyeuristic video which subject is adult related. No masturbation references. No references to sadomasochism,  or tying people up even if  it is in jest. Or any adult style comments. Some European sites do have areas where they paste onto their pages, material which is rather racy. I need to explicitly state, that I cannot award sites which feature anything along these lines. Being a Christian, any award I place on any site is putting my Church and it's reputation, as well as my own, on the line.  Personally, I find "blue humor" offensive & will not award a site which places it there. Or has links to websites which contain the material. 

3. No violence. I absolutely gross out seeing even simulated violence!  While I respect that others have a taste for it, I strongly feel it is something not suitable for children. The sites which get any of my awards must be sites where I would feel safe having, let's say, a child of 10 years old, viewing them. And for me personally, if it is not able to be viewed by say, a 10 year old, I would not feel comfortable in awarding the site.  War memorial sites are fine, veteran sites, police sites, etc.. are all perfectly fine. Any site which shows  the aftermath of violence in a way to educate the viewer so as not to do those deeds is fine.  But sites which show mutilated body parts, bloodbaths, & simulate violence in some form are definitely not sites I would choose to award or even visit. No sites which display threats to other human beings or glorify torture of other human beings are permitted to win any of my awards. Or preach hatred. Or intolerance, in  general. 

4. No child pornography.  Unfortunately I went through  a website once that had child pornography on it. The person was applying for an award. I ended up not awarding the site.  It is fast becoming a crime to have that on the net as well as saving images of that sort on a home computer. I  myself personally feel that it's not only wrong to take their innocence from a child, but to exploit the child as well! Especially in  such a public fashion where millions can view their exploitation!  I will not consider sites which have that subject on it. 

5. No links in any of the sites which you choose to place on your links pages to any sites which contain material that has any of the above.

6.  A big turn-off for me are sites which have a darker side to them. Satanic stuff for one instance. Or stuff which can be dangerous in my humble opinion. Sites for cults also do not rate high with me.  I honestly do not like such sites. Would never visit them on a personal browse time. Would prefer that owners of these types of sites not enter them. No sites also that are X Rated and are free to view. No sites which feature nude and or sexual photos of a celebrity .  No sites which have cruelty to animals on them. Hunting sites are fine. Wilderness sites are fine. But please no sites which show animals being tortured. Believe me, those sites are out there! 

7. Some big bonus points from my end to help cinch an award for your site -- is if a site contains music. Or if your site has lots of color to the pages. Or shows a  passion for the topic. I will definitely award!  The more of it ---- the better! Specific criteria for certain sites are below. Now some types of  sites are very special to me and below are their criteria and what I specifically look for when I view them. In all honesty, the criteria featured below, in general, can be used on all sites which meet the above rules I am asking  for as well. So even if your site is not wrestling, entertainment or sports related, the criteria below is still the same when I view your site. Basically great content , original insights .  Originality and lots of color are a major plus! Plus if you have music and  the website just has a lot of SOUL. Then you are a shoe-in for a win. With all THAT being said (hee hee) here goes.....



Personal Websites:  I look for lots of great links.  Personal  pictures are a plus, but not an absolute necessity. Plus displays of the talents that the website owner has. Insights and originality are a HUGE plus in my book. Another biggie can maybe even be self written poetry.   Plus music and lots of vivid colors don't hurt either. I look for effort and frankly one page with  links will not cut it.  For any award please......

1. Fill out the form below and please be sure to include the address of the site. And a website banner if your site has one. If not, I will provide a banner for your site. 

2. Site must be family oriented or family safe!

3. Please specify to me which award or special award of your choice as well.

4. Please describe to me what your site is about. After which, please provide a brief explanation as to why your site should be awarded. 

5. Please upon winning enclose to me a banner which I could place on my links page as well as on my winner's page. Good Luck!

Sports sites : I look for stats and news as well as a general sense of information on your team, player or sport. I look for a sense of passion for the sport , color and music are plusses. I look for team and fan spirit. I too make special awards so if you have a player in mind or team.. please specify.

1. Fill out the form below and please be sure to include the address of the site. And a website banner if your site has one. If not, I will provide a banner for your site. 

2. Family Safe!

3. Please specify to me which award or special award of your choice as well.

4. Please describe to me what your site is about. After which, please provide a brief explanation as to why your site should be awarded. 

5. Please upon winning enclose to me a banner which I could place on my links page as well as on my winner's page. Good Luck!

These rules  apply for all types of sites which meet the criteria.  The key phrases are highlighted in all areas. For what exactly I look for in all pages. Whether they are personal pages, pages historical in nature, government related, media related. Musical based websites - whether for a certain entertainer or group whether it is fan made, or the entertainer or group's official website. Websites based on films or actors- Whether those sites are fan made or official sites. Business or corporate websites. Crafts websites. Auction websites. Et cetera.  All other type of personal or professional based website. 

To reiterate : 

To all sites which have as main content or even a partial content of any of the following : 

1 No sites containing threats to other human beings. No sites which promote aggressive acts as solutions to any problems, be it government, religious or road rage or personal problems. In other words no sites which are terrorist in nature or  belong to any group that is of a fringe movement that promotes terrorist acts. Also I will not award sites which preach hatred against races!

2. Sexual themes!! I frown on any site which has sexual themes! I especially frown on sexual themes which include children. No sexual innuendoes, jokes about rape, incest or references to sexual activities.  No wavs, mpegs, comments, or links to any sites in your links pages to sites  which contain these things. No jpegs which contain this. No stories or literature reprinted of adult subjects as well. If your site has these, please do not enter it. Related to this measure is number 3.......

3. All pay X Rated websites -- especially free "adult" X Rated and above X Rated related sites do NOTqualify.  Please do not enter.

4. All  Satanic and or cult based websites do not qualify. Mainly due to the fact that I personally find this subject area rather negative as well as destructive. All sites which win any of my numerous awards must have positive qualities & be safe for children to view & browse through.

5. ALL  sites which display in their humor pages  or even in theircomments area the following :  jokes, comments or rhetoric which can be deemed  "suggestive" or sexually explicit or in other words material which at best is adult oriented! Also which display jokes or comments which have racist material or remarks Also which display jokes or comments which have as their subject matter cruelty to humans or animals. By that I mean jokes which talk about rape or torture, mutilation, dismemberment et cetera. I also will not award sites which have a LARGE use of foul language. I understand a word or two or three here and there but every other word ?????? I feel uncomfortable with large usage of  *language*


If your site falls into any of these categories then your site  is clearly  not eligible.  

Cool! Now that you have been bored to tears (lol) what with reading my criteria , rules and what specifically I am looking for. I will now shut up (LOL) and we will now continue onto the next area ..the actual applying for the award.  And since I have made it all rather clear what specifically I am looking for, I will now wait for you all to enter in your sites. So......if your site DOES meet my specific criteria...(sound of a drum roll)




That means you are almost there !!! All that is left is if you could  please fill out the form below and hit submit and I will be in touch when I view your site. Also too, some browsers do not support forms.  

If your browser does not support forms please email me at the address provided below with the url, description, choice of award plus why you should win this award I will also be in touch soon as I review the site or sites.. Please click on the gif which says *email me* .

Also I need to ask you as well to please send me in an email after you mail me this form or your submittal- your site's banner please to my  email box at  



If you have no banner, I will make a banner for you & send it to you.

I will gladly review your site or sites and chances are very high it will be awarded. 

To all I say -- thanks for your interest. Good Luck!
