IIIII have had a really hard time getting back into blogging since my return from my holiday, and then today I found a message that the wonderful Missy has given me a Liebster award. How lovely!
Just the catalyst that I needed.
Liebster is German for ‘favourite’. The Liebster Award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers. In accepting this award, the recipient must pass it on to 5 favourite up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers.
have singled out five blogs who I think deserve to be showcased
Laura gardens in Sydney, and she comes from America, and now lives in Sydney. I come from South Africa, but via America. She tries to grow lots of veggies, and like me battles to get her fair share after the bandicoots and possums have had more than they should. She just had a long holiday in Germany, and I had a holiday in Malaysia.
He lives in Utah, but his garden is miles away, in the Philipines - what an ambitious project! He e-mails his mom with projects and ideas, and then sends funds for her to implement them! Sometimes things don't go exactly as planned, and sometimes they work out very well - recently he purchased a huge stone carving of the good shepherd which now resides on a hilltop overlooking his parents sheep as they graze in the field below.
The name of this lovely blog is Serendipity, Raindrops and Roses. Grannie lives in a rural town and she and her husband deliver the mail - "posties" as they are called here. Her 89 year old mother lives with them, and enjoys the outings every day on the mail run. Grannie has a heart of gold, she is always doing something for others - and inspires me to do some of the same, although I must admit I fall far short.
One of my dreams has always been to run a B&B and through this blog I can imagine myself a part of the farmstay they are just setting up. She has also written a children's book which sounds as though it will be fun to read. I enjoy reading about their farming antics.
Zelia lives in Rio de Janiero, and many, many years ago we sailed into that beautiful harbor and spent a couple of wonderful weeks there. She manages to grow the most beautiful orchids, and I keep hoping some of her green thumb will rub off on me! I also just find it wonderful to press the translate button and be able to read blogs written in another language.
I hope you enjoy checking out some wonderful blogs, and now I have no excuse, I am back to blogging regularly.
Note: one of the reasons I have not jumped back into blogging is that my templates started going all wrong, and now I can't insert a link... grr. so sorry, you might have to copy and paste the links.
Is anyone else having trouble with blogger lately? I think Google+ is creating problems, but then again maybe it is just me :) I know I should do things like save templates, and learn things more thoroughly before barreling ahead.... but I just don't.
Ok finished venting.
It does feel good to be back blogging again though even if it is not perfect..
