We’d be lying if we told you we didn’t care that no one had shoulder-tapped us for an award. We know it’s unbecoming to pout, but truth is we were feeling a little down about the whole thing. What did other blogs have that our humble offering neglected to offer? What were we doing wrong? Then, out of the blue and as the sun began to set on our eligibility, the lovely muddybootsandfingernails took mercy on us and nominated us for a Leibster Award and for that we send them huge, heartfelt, pathetically grateful thanks and a very large smile as well.
And we’re still smiling, even after our research gave light to two very different ways of looking at this award. While some people discount it as nothing more than a chain-letter for bloggers who have under two hundred followers (just made it, phew!) and begrudge the extra work that involves (see the rules below), we’re of the opinion anything that prompts us into discovering some fresh, new blogs or makes us a few more blogosphere friends can’t be bad.
So without further ado and with great delight, we would like to nominate the following for a Leibster Award:
Londonsenior – because we love our weekly cybertour
colorpencil2014 – for her beautiful drawings and lovely comments
ouroldislandhome – because we are in awe of what they’re undertaking and wish we were that brave
agentsoffield – for their passion for the planet and because they were nice about our horrendous photography
happilybackward – for their simple honesty and their recent photograph confirming our chickens are indeed Welsummers
