Rolling off a Blog

Does it count when you win an award when you were nominated by your sister?  I hope so because I gratefully accept.

My sister, Helen, who is RVing Girl (http://rvinggirl.wordpress.com/) , nominated me for the Liebster Award.  This is granted to fellow bloggers who have fewer than 200 subscribers on a daily basis and it is to encourage those of us who are new to the blogging world.

The rules are:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Link back to the person.
  • Copy and Paste the Award into your blog. (Haven’t figured this out yet.)
  • Reveal your 5 blog picks with links.
  • Let them know you chose them by leaving a comment on their blog.

I began my blog in July, visited my sister at her home in Bermuda, and convinced her to begin a blog of her own. And now she’s an award winner!  Well, in my books, she’s always been a winner.  Thank you, Helen.

My five nominees are:

  1. Where’s Wormy?  http://whereswormy.wordpress.com/  This is a new blog, in the last few weeks, and it is about a family “pet” who gets himself into all sorts of trouble, while having great adventures.  Very cute and very imaginative.
  2. Fifty Four and a Half. http://fiftyfourandahalf.com  Elyse is from Connecticut and is living in the Southern US.  She is hilarious and I laugh every time I read her posts.
  3. Prairie Wisdom.  http://prairiewisdom.wordpress.com  I love this blog.  The posts are all different but her humor and stories of her family resonate with me.  She is also very creative and writes about her activities.  I check her out every day!
  4. Siobhan. http://mylivelovelaughlife.com  Siobhan writes with such ease about her efforts to get fit and healthy, something most of us want to do. 
  5. Sylvia Morice. http://sylviamorice.wordpresscom Sylvia is a fellow Canadian who is writing with gentle humor about her life.  She is cruising to Hawaii as I write but I can’t wait until she returns to daily blogging.

I think all of these blogs are worth following, and would like you to check them out.  You may like them enough to subscribe to them too.

I am currently packing to move from Toronto to Ottawa and have been too busy to post every day but I am taking a little break from the house for a couple of hours and will try to get another post in tonight.

Happy blogging!

  1. I couldn’t figure it out either so I copied and pasted the icon to my photos and then cropped it and inserted it that way.
    I am so computer savey in many ways but others…..????!!!!????

  2. Thanks so much for nominating me for the award. I will do my best to live up to the lofty expectations winning such a prestigious award brings with it! (Tongue placed firmly in cheek,, of course.) But seriously, I do appreciate the nomination and will follow the rules in a new post.

    I’m finally back in Canada, and back online! Yay! Thanks again and I look forward to reading more of your posts.

  3. Thank you! I feel the same way. As an educator myself, I find your no nonsense, down to earth wisdom connects with me. Love to check in with you every day.
    I have had two grandchildren over for the holiday and other company so haven’t been able to be on the web and have missed it. Blessings as you prepare to move.
