In the last week I have been nominated by 2 fellow bloggers for 2 awards. As a new blogger I was unsure what awards were or what I was supposed to do with them. I needed to look at the guidelines (as it were) and to give a little thought to my response. I also needed in truth to get back on my desktop so I could see what I was doing! . . after a few weeks navigating around the web on my ipad: not ideal when your eyes arn’t quite what they used to be.
I would firstly like to thank Sharifah
for my versatile blogger award
and mj http://paintedpenguins.wordpress.com/tag/laughing-penguins/
for my liebster award
I consider my awards a priviledge and a kindness from ‘virtual strangers’ with whom I share a common love of words.
I have discovered many kindnesses on wordpress since my blogging journey began. I am grateful every day.
Those I know only through their words and pictures have shared their time with me. You have passed by and shown me the kindness of reading my words. You have expressed a kindness in ‘liking’ and sometimes shared a kindness in a thought or two.
If simply put – human kindness is ‘taking the time’, then I am thankful too to be here, to be a part of something and to discover new ways of doing just that.
When I arrived at wordpress months ago I did not know what direction my blog would take or where I would be drawn. I realise now I am drawn to words and pictures and sometimes a glorious and uplifting combination of both.
Having said that here are a list of blogs who like and are all worthy of my time and yours
I am aware that I am supposed to nominate fellow bloggers, but as there are 2 awards I am acknowledging here, how about my listed blogs take their pick !! ( I hope I wont be black balled for suggesting that but I want to do this post before 2013 chimes and I believe blogging has to be a pleasure and not ever felt as pressure.)
I would like to complete my acceptance by repsonding appropraitley to the qustions posed by each award.
Firstly – versatile award and 7 things about me.
My favourite colour is green, I am a Mum, sister and friend first, I love fish and chips, I want to visit the Arctic circle and bathe in it’s wonders, I have learned the peace that comes from BEing and not striving, into motown and relish feasting my eyes of beautiful things.
Secondly – liebster.
And today I add 2 more awards so kindly offered
Thank you J E
and thank you too
. . what a lovely way to end the year 🙂
