The new year arrived with a very humbling surprise for me; I received a Liebster Award for my blog from Jennifer M. Hartsock – a writer who’s views and commentary I find to be so engaging and thought-provoking, that I felt compelled to subscribe to her blog – thus ensuring that I never miss the opportunity to enter into a rewarding debate.
In line with the guidelines for accepting the award, I am awarding a Liebster Award to the following five blogs that I love to read:
Fydsy’s Blog – “Jan Gorski-Mescir: writes about football, art, history, politics, atheism, humanity and all those other foibles humankind is so good at getting wrong…” – A writer who stimulates thought and is guaranteed to enlighten with every post.
Elementary Circle – “C-C Lester: Is a female writer from Berkshire, England… (who) writes teenage fantasy fiction, and women’s fiction.” - I look forward to the day when I can walk into my local Waterstones or log on to Amazon and purchase her latest, wonderfully crafted, novel.
Streams of Consciousness – “Coco Rivers loves words, in all forms and all languages. Writing is a passion that has governed her life since she was 14 years old. As with all great passions, it leads and you follow. Mastering wordplay is her lifelong endeavor, a labor of love.” – Through her blog Coco gives in to the passion of the moment, whatever that is. I am just glad that she allows me to come along for the ride.
Doodlemum – “37, short, defensive, far too chatty for my own good, mother, artist, noisy, chocolate loving and permanently tired. (I know, how many bloody adjectives do I need…)” - Angie illustrates and writes one of the most endearing and creative blogs I have the pleasure of subscribing to. In years to come her work will adorn the shelves of every major book store; the kind of gift every young child will adore.
Single Malt Monkey – “So, my blog is me travelling in cyberspace and hopefully linking up with fellow men and women across the world. It’ll be about creative positive people and their/my work. I grew up in the 60’s and believed in peace and love, man. Aaarghh, sod it – I still do.” - Through Al’s eyes, experiences and creative offerings I am able to travel the world, enjoy the sights and sounds of exotic and rich cultures and gain a greater appreciation for the positive elements of life that we can so often over-look.
