When I started writing this blog about 12 weeks ago I never thought anyone except my immediate family would be interested in what I was up to. I thought it would be a good way for me to record my progress and if anyone else wanted to read it, then that would be a bonus. I was surprised to find that after only a couple of posts, bloggers around the world had “liked”, commented and/or decided to follow my blog. I started to read more and more fantastic blogs about all sorts of subjects and found I enjoyed reading as much as writing.
As there are so many wonderful blogs out there, I was extremely surprised and very grateful when a lovely fellow blogger, The Modern Home Economist nominated me to receive the Liebster award. I am delighted to accept 🙂 In fact, I was stunned to read that she had thought I was worthy to receive such an award when there are so many other great blogs out there! The only thing is, my family think it is hilarious that I was nominated by someone who strives to be the perfect homemaker, wife, cook etc. as they all know this is the complete opposite of me 🙂
The Liebster Blog Award, from what I can gather, is given to blogs with less than 200 followers who deserve recognition for their interesting content. Also, to drum up some extra publicity for fairly new blogs.
I could never live up to The Modern Home Economist’s standards! Her blog is well worth a visit if you enjoy cookery and crafts.
Anyway, by accepting the award I ageed to:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to me (see above).
2. Copy and paste this award on my blog.
3. Reveal my top 5 bloggers and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
Drum roll please……………Here are my nominees in no particular order. I hope they accept 🙂
