This month I need to start by thanking Yenta Mary of Food Floozie and Joanna of Mommy in Suburbia for kindly passing awards in my direction. Thanks, ladies, I really appreciate it.
Joanna also tagged me with some questions - this post could get rather long if I tried to answer all of them, but the first question was about anonymity (or not), and I don't think I've really talked about that before. Of course, you can tell that I blog under my real name - I didn't really know there was an alternative, when I started out, but I'm glad I did it this way. I know too many people who've been stung by writing what they thought were anonymous posts, and later being "found out" by family/friends/colleagues. I think that having my name in big letters at the top of the page reminds me that I'm accountable for everything I say here, which can only help to keep me honest and fair. How about you? If you blog "anonymously" how hard would it be to figure out, if I knew you in real life?
And now for a couple of blog inspiration badges:
|Rachel at Me, Myself & Pie is experimenting with a variety of different recipes, and takes beautiful pictures of her results. Reading her blog always makes me hungry!|
|On the boundary between installation art and handicrafts, my friend Kirsty blogs at A Night of a Thousand Cranes and is busy preparing for her first origami installation. She's also done some other great origami events along the way - a truly inspiring read.|
Recipients are under no obligations, but if you'd like to display the badge, please right-click to save a copy. And if you'd like to pass it along, you're very welcome to do that, too.
If you missed previous months' recommendations, you can find them all in one place.
Now let's do a quick social media exchange. I love to keep in touch with my favourite blogs on Facebook and Twitter - if you use either, please add your links here, and take a look through the list to make some new friends:
