Spreading the community feeling

After a busier year, some concerted blogging effort, and the resulting burgeoning in new reading material and interesting blogs to peruse, I’ve been nominated for the Liebster award by Holly of Adventures with Holly. I’ve followed with interest her adventures in Korea and around east Asia for the last few months. I also regularly enjoy her Taste of Korea Tuesday posts about food; a favourite topic of mine!

Blog – lovin’

New Year, new dedication to the blog, and I am very pleased to accept the Liebster award from the fabulous Angie at Outdoor Running Adventures.

Liebster Blog Award

I started following a host of running blogs when I ran my 30k challenge in October, Angie’s is one that I still read regularly to follow her adventures in the snow with her cute dog, Kobi, a mysterious moose and lots of bears. Yes, bears. It is still a life ambition of mine to go to Canada and see a bear; Angie’s blog is my way of vicariously livin-the-dream. The dream with bears in it. And running.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

The Award

They say it’s not quantity, but quality that counts. I surely hope so as I have definitely not been a prolific producer of posts this year. Fortunately, just when I needed a boot in the rear to up productivity somewhat, along came Catriona, who is Crazy, to give me one in the form of the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

I’ve been following Catriona’s online brand of crazy with added rainbow shit and penis socks for a while now, whenever I need a dose of LOL in my life. I recommend you do, too, although if the blogosphere were HMV, this blog would have a Parental Advisory sticker on it. Just sayin’.


Sharing the love

An exciting accolade I have been unable to acknowledge properly in the last few weeks is that – I am very proud to say – I have been awarded a reader appreciation award! I am even more proud because I was nominated for this by the superb blogger, April, writer of Aventuras de Abril. More
