It’s a pretty cloudy day, so what better way to turn the gloominess away than by accepting a Sunshine Blogger Award, courtesy of the awesome Ruth at FlixChatter. If you’re not one of her many followers, go and do it. She’s great.
I don’t normally take too much notice of stats. That’s never been why I do the blog or what I judge it by. I don’t even check the end of year stats. But I just noticed that my followers recently passed 1,500 followers and I wanted to thank you all. I know how many great blogs there are and how busy you all are. On the last notification post celebrating three years I offered you the chance to ask me whatever you were curious about. This time I thought I’d do something different and give some extra information about the blog.
Within the past year I’ve discovered so many wonderful new blogs. And the ones I’ve been following before that have come such a long way too. As I’ve said before and will always believe, this blog is nothing without the people who read it and those who offer their thoughts and opinions. It’s also been a pleasure getting to know quite a few of you in real life too.
I don’t normally post pictures of myself here, but I thought why not do something a little different. I hope you enjoy this maverick set of recent-ish photos. Feel free to ask about the context or fashion involved. Continuing on that theme, if any of you have any questions you want to ask me about myself or the blog, you’re more than welcome to ask them below.
An awards post now. My thanks to the ever awesome Vinnie who continues to entertain, educate and impress on his stylish blog, for the nomination. You should definitely hop on over if you haven’t already.
I’ll have to skip the 11 fun facts for reasons of time, but I’ll happily answer Vinnie’s questions and provide my own for nominees.
I’ve been included in the very awesome Abbi’s Christmas-themed ‘Season’s Greetings’ post. Abbi has a super fantastic blog and I really recommend you go and take a visit if you don’t know her blog already.
A big milestone for my blog as I just found out that I just passed 1,000 posts. I just wanted to thank you all for your continued interest and support. One of the great joys of setting up this blog has been interacting with you guys and seeing how your own sites have evolved.
It’s always nice to be recognised within the bloggersphere, especially as there so many great blogs out there. I fell a bit behind with these awards so I’ve stuck to eight blog nominees for the first three awards.
It’s now been two years since I set this blog up. Yay! In that time I’ve extended the blog far more than I ever thought I would and through the blogging community found so many other wonderful sites. Thank you for all your support, feedback and likes/comments. Interacting with you all is one of the great pleasures of having this blog. On that note, please feel free to ask whatever question(s) comes to mind that you’d like to ask me and I will answer them in a later post.
Over the weekend so far I noticed I passed 1,000 followers. I just wanted to post a quick note to thank you for all your views, likes and comments. You have such great blogs yourselves, and one of the great joys I’ve had since starting nearly two years ago is discovering just how great the blogging community is. You guys really help make the site what it is. Have a wonderful weekend.
I’ve been kindly nominated for two separate award nominations. The first is by No Nonsense with Nuwan Sen who includes several awards within his nomination, including Real Neat Blog and Beautiful Bloggers. Nuwan Sen has a very considered, thoughtful writing style which is always evident whenever he writes of films. You should definitely check out his site.
