Recognition at last – Nominated for The Liebster Award

liebster-award-nomination

Well what a pleasant surprise Ive been nominated for an award.

It’s the Liebster Award, given to new blogs with less than 200 followers.
In nominating me, my new blog friend, Hi Life in Libraries https://cherylbecker.wordpress.com/2015/03/22/just-happy-to-be-a-nominee, has nominated me for this award because she has been enjoying my blog.

Now with every award comes a certain responsibility and that means that there is no such think as a free lunch, so in acepting this award it means I have to answer ten simple questions (the easy bit) and nominate 10 blog for people to look at.

So lets start with the easy bit.

  1. What’s the story behind your blog name?
    I thought that using my name would let people know that I post from the heart and not my head.
  2. Who is the one person who you think reads most of your posts?
    I know who its not, My Wife Ann, she thinks Im keeping an online diary. Its probably my Grand daughter Saskia, she likes to correct my grammar. (She is twelve and is young enough to still think she knows everything).
  3. Last meal on your last day?
    Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings with all the trimmings.
  4. Dog or cat?
    Dog!
  5. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? (Oldest, youngest, middle child, etc.)
    Oldest. My younger brother who is 10 years younger keeps reminding me at every birthday celebration?
  6. Have you ever deleted a post after it has already appeared on your blog? Optional: Why?
    No but I have edited one or two.
  7. I post mainly via my
    iMac. I can’t be doing with all the fiddling around with my iPad.
  8. What is the strangest place you have been in the last year?
    A seafood restaurant in Rhodes, Greece. It had Squid and Octopus nailed to the walls drying in the mid day sun. Strange but the food was to die for.
  9. What is the last really kind thing someone did for you?
    My wife bought tickets to the Queen and Adam Lambert Concert in January for my birthday.
  10. What will you do next after you finish answering these questions?
    Up the jolly dancers to bed, a busy day on location tomorrow.

Whew! That was hard! The next requirement is that I share the rules of the award. They are:

Rules:

  • Each nominee must have under 200 followers
  • Thank and link to the nominating blog
  • Answer their 10 questions and propose 10 new ones for your nominees
  • Nominate 10 blogs and tell them that they’ve been nominated
  • Write a post containing the questions
  • Include these rules in the post

Next, I nominate ten new blogs for the award, and list the ten questions they must answer.

  1. Congratulations, John, for this highly prestigious award. Certainly, a Nobel of Pulitzer cannot be far behind. Way to go. You’re now officially a bloke hero.

  2. Thank you John for the nomination, I am honoured. Really!
    I have had a couple of nominations for an award , the first time I hadnt a clue how to link to my nominees and failed miserably to respond. The second one I had to refuse as my EE allowance of 10 gigs a month did not stretch to perusing other blogs to find genuine nominees. However if I am honest the main reason for failing to respond is time. Do I plant seeds, dig the plot, attend to willow, chase geese, entertain the campers, attend my grand daughters birthday party, Chat to the neighbours (like all afternoon!) knit Phil a jumper, play with Fimo and wax, or post to my blog? Actually I would like to find ‘Roz time’ to check my reader and listen to your tracks too…. I hope you understand . Thanks again though. 🐣👒🐔🐝

    • No worries Roz, It took me a week to find a bit of time, I understand. Your lifestyle sounds idillic, I am about to leave to shoot a scene in the city centre. It will be bedlam. I sometimes wonder why I do it, then I remember to pay the bills haha.
