I have been awarded the Awesome Blog Content Award. Yay 🙂 I am totally thrilled and honoured and humbled by that.
Thank you to the wonderful Gwendoline, for being so very supportive and kind. If you want to read a truly gorgeous blog, check out the Reluctant Retiree http://garrulousgwendoline.wordpress.com
To accept the award, the awardee has to do the following:
- Display the award on their blog.
- Announce the win with a post and thank the blogger who awarded them.
- Present 8 deserving bloggers with the award.
- Leave a link to these blogs and let them know in a post that they are an awardee.
- Write a word or phrase about themselves for each letter of the alphabet.
There are very many great blogs, and each Blogger has his or her agenda, as to why they blog, be it just for fun, for the love of writing or the love or sharing their thoughts or photos or artwork. For me, it is both an enjoyable experience as well as a necessity. The blog gives me an opportunity to explain in more detail what I do, my thoughts behind my work. And online presence is the thing to have, the marketing gurus say. But for a one-woman-business, it is also a bit like doing the splits between fun and work, and there are only so many hours in a day. Some blogs I would have liked to nominate, don’t accept awards at all or not any more. It is a time consuming thing to receive an award, that I have discovered. However, awards are rare in my life, mostly I am content with hugs from my children, a cake decoration that turned out well and a happy customer. That is why I very gladly accepted this award 🙂
My Awardees are as follows (and it was hard cutting down to eight, I did toss a coin a couple of times, apologies if you expected to be in this list and are not):
This young woman is trying to point out the art in everything in our daily lives, through her photography: http://photoversuch.wordpress.com
Angelina’s very sophisticated blog at http://angelinahue.wordpress.com/ . We share a love for dark chocolate, foot massage and photography. Angelina challenges herself to discover new perspectives through her photos and her writing.
http://gnatseyeview.wordpress.com/ : G’Nat has a kitchen window vegetable garden, something I’d love to have someday. He has concluded that life is what he makes it, which is very wise and positive and something I believe in also.
http://cookingfrogs.wordpress.com/ : The blog of Laurianne, who loves travel, reading and food. Her travel descriptions always include descriptions of what she ate, something I can very much relate to, as for many trips, I remember the food more than anything else.
Susan, who invites the reader to grab a cup of coffee and stay for a while, which I do, looking at her beautiful photography and reflecting on the words that accompany them. http://lichtyears.wordpress.com/
http://mtphotographer.net/ : Not many places in the US are on my bucket list, Montana is one of them. Love these photos, gorgeous landscape.
Baz, an Aussie bloke, very outdoorsy person, which I am not. So I enjoy seeing faces and places of Oz that I don’t necessarily will ever get to. http://thelandy.com/
http://wordpress.com/read/blog/id/45313666/: great blog about food with lots of colours. Always get hungry when reading this blog.
