September flower smeller awards!

Posted on October 13th, 2008 by Jim

Well folks, time for more Flower Smeller badges to GO! to 5 more worthy folk from September 2008:


This badge serves to acknowledge others who are, in their own way, smelling the flowers.

They maybe regular visitors to the GO! Smell the flowers community, one of our founders blogs or someone that could contribute here who is yet to visit! Maybe they have recovered from an illness, written a book, made waves in the blogosphere, won the lottery, inspire others, made a major shift in their life, won promotion, quit the rat race, raising a family, discovering their greatness and on it GO!s as more examples from around the world start to surface. They may not even have an online presence at all – that’s where this award differs!


We’d like to present the honourary title of Flower Smeller to…..

…… the following 5 who have either contributed to this community since the founders have been on board, have recently grabbed our attention in the blogosphere or are smelling their flowers in life in general. The 5 flowers smellers are as follows:

1) Svasti – author of inspirational blog a journey from assault to wholeness

Joined in, shared and contributed to some lively OSHO & astrological posts here at GSTF and really got amongst it with some fantastic insights.

2) Tech guy Deep here at GO! Smell the flowers. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEEP!!!!!

He has been relentless in his quest for make this place run smoother responding to every issue, request and ‘can you just ?’ Thanks for going the extra miles Deep and it was great to finally meet you last week.

3) American expat Sweet Violet – writer of The View to the other sideFrom Silicon Valley to South Africa…at home, half a world away with her comments here of late leading us to her well written blog.

4) Lil thoughts – Sandra’s little thoughts although she lost our latest free flowers contest she still returned to the blog to offer congratulations to the winner. A small gesture but one that was noted.

5) Anyone who survived an OSHO retreat and left with their mind rather than no-mind!

Just leave your name at this post and the badge is yours – offer closes 20th October 2008. :-)

    A little bit of knowledge goes a long way in all situations in life.
    Buying a car is no different! That means you need to read
    advice from experts, as detailed below, to ensure that when
    you shop for that car, you really know what you’re doing and how to get the best deal.
