Isn’t it lovely, when people tell you they think you’re doing a good job? It makes my tummy all warm and fizzy (but in a good way). mushroomsup over at Funny For Nothing nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award (cue cheers and confetti) for which I’m so very grateful. Also, she thinks I can be humorous, which is high praise, coming from her.
I’m passing this award on to the following fifteen other blogs, because, let’s face it — everyone likes to have their little piece of the internet recognised, and also, I only follow blogs I really like, so I have a rich list from which to choose (which, of course, makes it quite hard to choose). I urge you to check out the following excellent people:
Food (Policy) for Thought: An interesting and thought-provoking blog about food, the food industry.
Running With Buddha: Since my journey with breastfeeding is almost over, I’m gearing up to start running again, with the goal of a marathon in a couple of years. This blog inspires me.
My Writing Meta: This way in which this woman dedicates herself to writing puts me to shame. Always something interesting to read.
Stuphblog: promotes itself as the first unshitty blog on the internet, and I think I have to agree. Variety, humour, and very good writing.
The Waiting: is not the hardest part, apparently! But the journey is so very entertaining.
purelysubjective: An artist who blogs about her work, and is always asking questions which keep me thinking for days.
A Place That Does Not Exist: I love reading and learning about this writer’s process, as she discovers it herself.
Heed Not Steve: This blogger is both a talented writer, and funny. I just love his poetry.
Shawndra Miller: writes about the growing grassroots movements tackling important issues of food security, climate change and economic instability. I always learn something from her posts.
Creative Liar: Where the blogger shares writing, or her thoughts about writing, and is always amusing.
Today’s Author: A group of talented writers, sharing thoughts, tips, and encouraging creativity from their readers and each other.
Jerry Colby-Williams: A gardener who lives in the Queensland city of Brisbane, and who blogs about his amazing garden and sustainability.
Storyshucker: I recently discovered this blog and love the humour and nostalgia in the posts. A true storyteller… uh… shucker.
the world in words: If you are at all interested in words or language(s), this is absolutely the blog for you.
My Not So Humble Opinion: This is a blogger who is unafraid to tell you what he really thinks. But the great thing is, it also gets me to question what I really think, too.
And apparently you need to know seven interesting facts about me.
– I can speak German.
– I like sheep, and chickens, and I won’t hear it when people tell me they’re stupid.
– I’ve tried to communicate telepathically with my dog, but so far, it’s not worked. I’ll keep you posted.
– I really like tea. I mean, I really, really like it. It’s somewhere between an obsession and a hobby.
– My favourite vegetable is the potato.
– My favourite cake is black forest torte.
– When I was ten, I wrote letters to President Reagan and President Gorbachev to ask them to please not begin a war with each other. I got a postcard back from the White House, thanking me for my letter and assuring me that they were always looking for peaceful solutions to conflicts. I was pretty chuffed.
