What a great early Christmas present I received the other day from Kerry Leibowitz of Lightscapes Nature Photography Blog. He nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!! Sometimes I read other blogs and am so amazed by the talent out there that I start to doubt my own work. Just because I think my blog is good doesn’t mean other people will. So, when the email arrived from Kerry letting me know about the award, I was just thrilled!! I am a sucker for landscape photos, and when I found Kerry’s blog, I became addicted immediately. You really should check it out. I know you won’t be disappointed – his photos are breathtaking. Here are the rules for the Kreativ Blogger Award:
- The Kreativ Blogger image must be displayed on the blog.
- The nominator must be acknowledged.
- The recipient must state ten things about himself that his readers probably don’t know.
- The recipient must pass the award along by nominating at least six blogs to receive the award.
Now it is actually harder than you think to come up with 10 things to tell people about yourself, but here goes:
- My dream job is to work with books in some capacity.
- I am the type of person who thrives with a little pat on the back, so this award meant a great deal to me.
- I am an amateur genealogist.
- I have far too many hobbies and my job interferes with my hobbies.
- I feel a great sense of pride when I walk into my living room and see my framed photos on the wall.
- When I am stressed or upset my favourite way to relax is to curl up with a good book.
- Sometimes I am surprised at how good my photos turn out for someone who doesn’t know much about photography.
- I think I am going to suffer very badly from the empty nest syndrome.
- I love sitting quietly outside listening to nature.
- Blogging is far more fulfilling than I expected!
Finally, for the six blogs I want to nominate. Because I am still relatively new to all of this, I only have a handful of favourite blogs so far that I regularly follow, which are all amazing. As a result of already receiving two blogging awards in the last couple of weeks, I have already nominated most of the blogs I follow for the same awards. So, what I decided to do this time was to check out some of the blogs that have been visiting my site and find some new favourites to follow and then nominate them for the Kreativ Blogger Award. Let’s face it, there are thousands of blogs out there waiting to be discovered and given some recognition. Here are my picks for the Kreativ Blogger Award:
- My Everyday Photos
- Hakan Dahlstrom Photography
- Laughing at Everyday Life
- Foot Tracker
- A Day in the Life
- Through the Rambler’s Eyes
I hope everyone will visit these blogs – they are all really impressive!
