Award free

land of the exiles 021

You know, there can be few nicer feelings than being given a seal of approval by someone who understands what you are doing or trying to do. When the first came in I had no idea what to do with them… or even if it was ‘worthwhile’… but the more I thought about it, the more I realised how nice it was to be appreciated and noticed by others who understood the amount of effort and heart that goes in to making and maintaining a blog.

This page is for the blogger awards…. those little bits of understanding and approval from peers that have landed on my page and made me smile, giving me encouragement and keeping me going. They come from others who are writing and posting,. There are many who post every day and have my admiration as they still manage to keep the content interesting. Some light and fun, some informative, some deeply moving, some simply beautiful.

To those who nominated this blog, Thank you. To those in the incredible 167 countries where this blog has been read, Thank you. To those lovely folk who follow the blog, who stop by and leave a comment, share a story, make friends and put the human face on this blog… Thank you especially.

I am humbled.

However, I no longer have time to do full justice to this lovely facet of the blogging community… so thank you, but please understand when time dictates that I can no longer take part.

With thanks to manumausam:

  2. Congratulations on your awards! It was fun learning more about you as I read this post. My little dog stole a piece of pizza from my son who briefly left it on his bedside table… he’s too small to raid our fridge – our teens do that! 😉 Thank you for nominating my blog!

      Hi Wendy, my dog not only had most of the turkey, but the smoked salmon and anything else she can get her hands on.. unless you actually offer her a biscuit, then she refuses it… until you have had a bite.It’s all about the sharing 😉

    As my sweet dog sleeps by my side, I see your post pop up on my screen reminding me why I love blogging. Thank you for reading my story and humbling me with this gesture of gratitude of this blog award nomination! You will see a post soon with my unknown 7 facts About ME! It may not prove to be as comical as yours! : )

      Hell, Jim!

      Thank you so much. That is very kind of you. I still find it odd that anyone reads me, let alone enough to nominate me for anything.. odd and ..I would say humbling, because it is as near as i can get, but that isn’t quite right. I admit to pride too. 🙂
      Thank you.
