Happy Valentine's Day!
I bet you'll agree with me......one of the very best things about having a blog, and being a follower on other people's blogs, is that you get to "meet" so many really great people.
I started to blog as a way of boosting my own confidence......I'm actually quite a shy person (no, honestly, I am!).....and have made cards and scrapbook pages for donkies years.......but only for my own enjoyment, or to give to family members. I always thought, (and still do, if I'm honest), that even my nearest and dearest just indulge my "little hobby", and accept my offerings because it makes me happy.
Yet, I've found, in the couple of months that I've been posting some of my creations, that other people genuinely think that the results of my efforts are okay, and even acceptable.......and I can't tell you what a kick that gives me!
Here's where I have to make an apology......one of my lovely blogging friends sent me an award, a couple of weeks ago.....and I forgot to post about it!! How could I do that, when it meant so much to me????
So, my lovely friend.....you know who you are :)......please accept my apology.
It was only when another lovely blogger, Ali from aqualeigasescape.blogspot.com sent me the same award, that I realized my BIG boo-boo!
So, my TWO lovely, thoughtful new friends, I gratefully accept the award, and hereby follow the rules of acceptance:
Here are the rules for the Liebster award, and the list of five bloggers I'm sharing it with:
1) Accept it, write a post about it and display it.
2) Pass it on to 3-5 fabulous but yet unknown blogs [not ones with large amounts of followers] and tell them they have been awarded the love blog award.
3) Link back to the person who awarded it to you.
The aim is to bring other great, but relatively unknown, blogs into the spotlight. Isn't that a great idea?
Now, I have to nominate 3-5 other great bloggers for this award......easy-peasy, heehee.....
