A big thank you to those of you who have given me awards recently. I’m being super lazy and combining them in one post. I can’t really play by the rules of all the awards as there’s only so many good new blogs I’ve found since my last award post.
To summarise, I’ve been given the Versatile Blogger award twice, by MJ Monaghan and How the Cookie Crumbles. I’ve also been given the ABC award, Candle Lighting award and 7×7 Link award by Susan Writes Precise. All of these blogs are funny and well-written and amongst my favourites, so do check them out if they’re not already on your list. For the ABC award, I’m going to do a separate post on my ABC of Travel which is something quite cool I found on another blog!
So, here are some WordPress blogs that I’ve found recently and enjoy reading…I must admit that I’m not sure I’m going to be able to add many more blogs to my regular reading without becoming unable to leave the house! By coincidence, there are 7 here, so I am going to forward the 7×7 Link award to them – rules are that you pass this on to 7 other blogs, and share 7 of your favourite posts from your own blog.
The Waiting – a pregnancy blog, not my kind of thing normally but I like her writing style.
Musings of a Twenty-Something – interesting perspective from a teacher of “disadvantaged” kids
Mature Student Hanging In There – a very busy (and funny) lady trying to fit it all in
Vera Til – photoblog from Iceland
Cherokee by Design – some beautiful nature photography
Unlikely Expat – expat life in Taiwan
It is a Strange Life – diverse and positive messages from London
7 of my favourite posts from my own blog are:
Icelandic Bucket List – I’m lucky in that there are lots of things I’ve yet to do in Iceland but want to. And the list has grown since I wrote this!
My Iceland 2011 – it was fun to think about how much Iceland has played a part in my life, sometimes without me realising it
What I’ve Learned About Blogging in 6 weeks – it seems we all learn the same lessons!
My Icelandic video of the year – got me all fired up thinking about small scary planes
Too Many Tourists in Iceland? – an emotive subject
An Open Letter to the Yule Lads – call me superstitious, but I did have a run of good luck after writing this
Kleina – Friend or Foe – because it was my first attempt at writing “funny”.
I must say I’ve never got so many awards in my life, an unexpected side effect of blogging. 🙂
