Not really but I won the next best thing – Blog Awards!
I don’t know why but some people like reading the random posts found at Happinessstanliveshere. Well I do know but I pretend not to because that might jinx it.
My humble thanks for apparently getting it!
The Sweetkitten is a Belgian traveller, food photographer, and, most importantly a Tintin fan. Her best posts feature reviews of locations of stories featuring my favorite cartoon character. She has teamed up with a Viking (I imagine him to be 7ft tall with a massive red beard; could be wrong though).
The Languedoc Lady is a retired (I’m guessing quite early) Californian living in Southwest France with her husband. Her posts remind me of my own luck in being married to a woman who’s parents moved to Aix-en-Provence many years ago. Southern France is a blogger’s dream indeed.
Nisha is a South African writer. She has had the guts to pursue her ambition and has gone full time! Many years ago I thought about writing but spent too much time reading Stephen King and not enough time on the Classics. nmwritersbloq.wordpress.com features reviews, the author’s own works and general musings on life.
For both Awards you must nominate other blogs which you like (15 for the Versatile Blogger and 5 for the Liebster Blog) I’ll do 10 here total and add more as I go:
A really great food/photo blog and I’m always envious of someone who works for himself!
If you want left-field with a red-headed flavour, look here.
This parent really knows kids!
An excellent blog about ‘Afro-Cosmopolitan’ food.
A blog about food, life and a bit of TV. Right up my street. (And check out the gravatar the guy looks just like one of The Eagles.
A great food blog from the wonderfully named Nova Scotia. (Sounds like Mars but its Canada.
It gets my vote just for the name
A great profile blog of a newly married couple in (im not sure but guessing) the USA
A site that will have you wishing you lived in Provence. Seriously.
A great foodie blog but are the roles ever reversed I wonder.
Now finally I’m supposed to say somethings about me:
- Two kids
- 42 this year
- Have been compared to Jack Dee
- Have a marketing background
- Can still play the guitar but only when drunk
- I’m always drunk
- That last one isn’t true the drink-drive laws in this country are just mad
- Don’t give a toss about the Olympics
- But my wife does so we will go
Have a fun year in 2012! No really do, if the Mayan’s are right it could be your last…
