About time, blogging, thank you
I rarely blog about . . . blogging because it feels a bit too “inside baseball”, plus it’s just not me. Ditto blogging awards. But I know that’s mostly my own quirk, and that many visitors are bloggers who might be interested in hearing about other blogs. So this is sort of a long preface to say that it’s about time I “publicly” say thank you to three truly prolific blogger friends who at one time or another have mentioned me: Carlos of 1cruzdelsur (journey through Argentina); Nia of photographyofnia (exploration of Turkey, art, and everything in between); and Janet of journalistontherun (worldwide adventures of a truly intrepid Irish gal).
I understand that there are “rules” to accepting these awards. The first time I was nominated or something like that, I actually tried to figure out how and when these rules and awards got started, and by whom. Geeky, yes, but hey, inquiring mind wants to know. Then I realize that it really doesn’t matter , other than the gesture of goodwill and friendship. In any event, I’m not really “accepting” any award and so not following any rules. But I do want to mention four other blogs you might want to check out. It’s an arbirtrary choice and number, as there are so many more that I enjoy. I just figure that anyone reading this post would be more likely to click on at least one link if I list no more than a few. In no particular order (and to my four fellow bloggers below, please no need to re-blog this or nominate me for anything).
jonsanwell.wordpress.com/blog stunning images of Vietnam and nearby countries
mauricesapirophotography.wordpress.com in a word. . .wow! (maybe that’s four words)
photolancaster.wordpress.com “photography with a bit of poetry, sometimes the other way around”
lightscapesphotography.wordpress.com the name says it all: light + landscapes
Finally, I just want to say that I truly appreciate the friendships I’ve made through this blog, and repeat visitors, and all of you who’ve taken the time to leave comments. I know how much time it takes even to take a quick look, because we’re all so inundated with information and images, and there’s so much amazing photography and fun stuff out there. So, really, a big thank you.
And I can’t have a post without a photo. Here’s one from my film camera taken late last year.
Back to Valparaiso next time. See you soon.
