Six weeks ago I started blogging. Little was I prepared for the vast, new, rich world that was to open itself up to me. Admittedly I am a more than average avid information hunter and reader, so this experience will probably not be positive for everyone. A blog is a constructive way for me to channel thoughts or information on queries that are bustling around in my head and that might be useful to others. I found out that there are a lot of bloggers at WordPress doing the same.
Through search ‘tags ‘ a variety of thoughts, perspectives and opinions are at your fingertips. Undeniably there are some bloggers who write about their shopping sprees or new car, but countless others give in-depth or summarized, unconventional, passionate, psychological, poetic and/or political insights into the various topics that interest them. The diversity is fascinating.
Blogger Dear Kitty. Some blog nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award. Thank you fellow blogger! Although I am not really an award kind of person I except this honour as a tribute to the blogs I have read and will read in the future.
With the award come the Creative Blogger Award rules which are:
* Display the Creative Blogger Award logo on your blog,
* Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs,
* Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you (very important)
* Share 5 random facts about yourself to your readers
* Pass these rules on to them.
Random facts about me can be found in the introduction paragraph to this blog so I will not bore you with more. There are a lot of blogs I would like to mention, too many in fact. Here are a few that caught my eye today in no specific order….
John Pratt – who thinks we should live more simply so others can simply live.
Family rules by plain Jane – who has a very lucid – and often funny – way of describing inter-relational situations.
Saskia Flowers – because she creates a botanical haven in the information storm
Daily creative culture – who believes in and lives a “Revolution of Understanding” .
The leftern wall– who has the interesting perspective of an activist in Jerusalem
The learning curve – who writes about the trials and tribulations of setting up her own business interspersed with her day to day doings and thoughts.
A small press life: – wonderfully bookish
Open Frankfurt – things Frankfurterisch
The thoughts of a history geek– who blogs about World War 1 and 2
