Canadian Swiss has nominated me for the "Roar" award. I'd be happy to spread the cheer and pass on the honor.
Here are the details: Those people I've given this award to are encouraged to post it on their own blogs; list three things they believe are necessary for good, powerful writing; and then pass the award on to the five blogs they want to honour, who in turn pass it on to five others, etc., etc. Let's send a roar through the blogsphere! The image at the top right can be copied and pasted onto other blogs. Also, a small size of the award for sidebars can be found over at the writing circle site.
I think that’s pretty cool, don’t you? Okay. So let’s start.
I originally started my blog for a handful of reasons. I wanted to start blogging, improve my writing, wanted to see SEO wise how the blog would function, I wanted to keep in touch with Europe and finally I met so many interesting friends and connections that I wanted to keep on blogging. Blogging for me is where I can connect to people as being an expat can get lonely at times. I think my blog title sums up what I blog is about, mainly Switzerland, my wonderful husband in Canada and photography.
A Great blog:
1. Is updated regularly.
2. Keeps your readers involved.
3. Gives you a great laugh and picks you up when you are down.
Now to my awards (first random people):
Just Call Me Mausi (Christina) - She grew up in Vancouver, Canada and found herself on the other side of the pond in Germany with 2 beautiful kids and a lovely husband. Her baking and organization skills are incredible while mixing in a bit of zesty ideas. Best of all, I've gotten to meet her entire family.
Renny's Terella in Norway - My wonderful blogging friend who has been a loyal reader from the beginning of his blogging debut. He loves all things Norway and is a network evangelist. He's hooked many into reading his wonderful blog about Norway.
Ms - Mac - An expat Scottish/Aussie transplanted into Switzerland. She's got 3 little darlings, a wonderful husband, lots o humor, great posts, and makes me miss Switzerland with all of her great and funny photos. She's had her blog much longer than me and I just enjoy all that she has to say.
My French Window - A fellow expat living in Switzerland with her French husband and 3 bilingual children. Pumpkins is also an aspiring photographer.
So there. It was a difficult choice to choose only five, but you can find my blogroll on my sidebar. It’s there for a reason, you know. ;)
I've also left off a few people just so others can send them awards. ;-)
