Blog Awards – Paying It Forward

By Naomiestment @naomiestment

Poppies in a bunch

It’s time to spread the love around the blogosphere and celebrate 2012 with some online gratitude


First and foremost, heart-felt thanks to Amy Nora Doyle at Souldipper (based in Canada) for her gift to me of the Liebster Award (meaning Favourite):

This is passed on with a request to recognise the blogger who gave it to you, along with 5 of your own favourite blogs.

My personal blogging journey, which is rapidly approaching 3 years now, has been so inspired by other bloggers around the world that I can’t limit my list to less than 8 (plus Amy of course). Each of these special virtual friends have contributed ongoing inspiration, delight, love, beauty, insight, perspective and laughs out loud on countless occasions. I recommend them all for a fabulous global Blog Tour! Here they are, listed in alphabetical order for the sake of fairness:

Cindy Taylor at The Only Cin (South Africa)

Jamie Dedes at Musing by Moonlight and The Cat’s Meow (USA)

Kate Shrewsday at Kate Shrewsday (UK)

Lance Ekum at The Jungle of Life (who has also contributed a guest post on blogging tips here) (USA)

Linda Brits at Tokeloshe (Canada)

Lin Eleoff at Lin Eleoff (USA)

Nancy R. Hatch at Spirit Lights The Way (USA)

Tammy McLeod at Agrigirl’s Blog (USA)

The sun-kissed poppies above were part of a recent birthday gift from my brother to my mom, and so lovely that I couldn’t resist taking a photo of them. In the true spirit of paying it forward (one of the greatest gifts of photography), I’m sharing them especially for these wonderful bloggers, a number of others that I’ve not included but appreciate immensely, and of course, all of you readers.

THANK YOU to each and every one of you for everything you do to make blogging such a blessing!
