REVISED - Best Blog Thinker Award...yes, you know what's coming
I have been given an award by the lovely Cynthia and in the words of the person who created it -
This award acknowledges the values that every Blogger displays in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values with each message they write. Awards like this have been created with the intention of promoting community among Bloggers. It’s a way to show appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.”
It's always good to get given things like this, even though I blush a bit at the thought that my little bits of blogfest should be described in such a way, because it's not my aim believe me. I don't take myself that seriously for one thing.
Anyway, what I must now do is select five other blogs and this bit always makes me feel awkward, because I do enjoy all the blogs that I pop into on a regular basis. I wouldn't go and visit them if I didn't enjoy them. So, who to choose?:
Carol at Not Only in Thailand
Jen Smith at The Cigarette Diaries
Mama over at casa-dolce-casa
lakeviewer at sixtyfivewhatnow
These are all blogs that I enjoy and I couldn't begin to tell them what it is about their writing that gives me pleasure, but they all do.
On another note, my latest essay is not really progressing very well. For some reason I feel exceptionally un-student like at the moment. I don't know if it is because of the milder weather making me feel I should really be outside. It could be that this essay just does not hold much interest for me - but then Wilberforce's view of Christianity didn't either and I still plodded along with it. We all have times when we must force ourselves to do things - when I was younger I always threw in the towel when times like this started to happen, but not any more. Come what may I will be sitting at our dining room table from 2pm Monday - ready to draft those paragraphs into shape.
I've come back to this post to announce yet another award for my sidebar. It's from here
