Blogger Recognition Award

bra

I was delighted to spot about a month or so ago (I’m terrible at doing tags in a timely fashion!) that my lovely friend Steph from A Little But A Lot had tagged me in the Blogger Recognition Award, and my WordPress hadn’t notified me that she’d linked to my blog! Eventually I realised, as I saw that the post was a referrer to my blog, so I knew that I had to the award – it always feels like such an honour to be thought of by a blogger friend for something like that.

The Black Cat Blue Sea Award

I was nominated by Lia from Lost in a Story for the Black Cat Blue Sea Award, which I am very excited to be doing on my blog today! It always means a lot to be nominated by another blogger for something – especially for an award as lovely as this one – so I’d like to say a big thank you to Lia (and say sorry for not doing it sooner as she nominated me three months ago . . .). Lia is also the brain behind Short Story Society, and I would definitely recommend checking out some of her creative writing as well as her blog posts.

Other Bloggers and Blogmas

To be honest, I’m not 100% certain when Blogmas finishes – if it’s the 24th, the big day itself, the end of December. However, personally I think I am going to be finishing off Blogmas here (although I have so many ideas for posts I want to write before 2017 that I might still end up uploading nearly every day before the end of the month). In order to celebrate what I view as quite an achievement, as posting every day for nearly a month is definitely a difficult commitment, I thought I would write about some other bloggers who have done Blogmas and my favourites from their posts. Celebration and trying to build other people up is definitely something I view as being in the Christmas spirit!
