The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Blogging Award!

Sourcerer has nominated me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award.

I’m still not sure what to think of blog awards. I am pleased to receive them but I’m always nervous about giving them to others in case they don’t agree with them.

Sourcerer puts it well.

If you just don’t do awards, no worries. The title suggests it’s just a way of saying “thanks for reading,” anyway. That’s exactly what I’m doing here. Regular visitors who read, like, and comment are what makes blogging worthwhile for me. If not for all of you, I wouldn’t see much point in it.

If you do enjoy passing on awards, here are the rules–

The nominee shall display the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award logo on his/her blog.
The nominee shall nominate 14 bloggers s/he admires, over a period of 7 days, all at once or little by little, by linking to their blogs and informing them about it.

I’ve decided to make my nominations largely to people who I’ve started to recognise a sound connection with since I started doing this daily in February. Some of them have been great comment makers, others have reblogged me, others have shared ideas and suggestions or inspired me with ideas for specific content.

I might not make fourteen nominations as I’m keen to select people who I have benefitted from knowing here already. A couple might has been nominated by me before. I guess I haven’t made that many friends!

Here are the nominations.

Uncle Spike’s Adventure

Lenz Experiments

Linda’s Wildlife Garden

Crazy Crone


Cee’s Photography

Rambling Woods

Lady of the Cakes

Expat Eye on Latvia

Lita Doolan

Trucker Turning Write

So there you go.

Join the party or hopefully appreciate my thanks as without you my blog would be a tree falling in a wood with no one to hear.

Thanks for reading eh?

    It is great to receive an award and I haven’t forgotten the one you gave me a while back. I know in the spirit of things it would be good to pass it on but from my phone it’s a tad awkward.

    Congratulations on this award for you and good on you for passing it on!

    I recognize a couple of these, but not very many. I’m eager to look at all your nominations!

    Glad you appreciated the award. I don’t really know what to think about them, either, but sometimes they can be fun. 🙂

      It’s cool when you see familiar names in the lists. I like the award concept. I see it as another way of broadening the bloggers that you visit and finding new types of blog to explore.

    Congratulations & thank you SO much! Humbled that a little bit of my photography experiments are inspiring for you in some way…I love how you fit in the weekly themes with your blog content. Your posts have inspired me to relook at the ways in which I can do my bit for the planet. Keep blogging and stay blessed!
