The Beautiful Blogger Award

A big thank you to @olbigjim for this unexpected award! I understand this is normally awarded to bloggers of somewhat more experience than this one but I won’t complain: I am indeed very grateful, thank you Jim!

To follow the tradition I wish first of all to invite my readers and followers to visit your wonderful blogs, The Left Wright Brain and OlBigJim. I have learnt a lot reading and following you, and met many interesting bloggers and writers – all thanks to you.

What seven things are worth mentioning about this blogger? Incidentally I admire the sobriety in your own listing Jim, and incomparable modesty, for a man of talent and so varied experience. So, here we go boldly:

  1. The place I really wish to live in, is the Alps of the Südtirol, in Northern Italy.
  2. I am addicted to photography, and spend many hours fiddling and editing my pictures, as well as looking for others’.
  3. Blogging for me is, above all, meeting people from all over the world, and exchanging ideas and experience.
  4. Best time of the day: early morning (and freshly ground coffee!)
  5. Best times of the year: Spring and early Summer
  6. The book I wish I could write? Marcel Proust’s A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu…
  7. The face that launched a thousand ships (for this little boy, long ago)? Jeanne Moreau

Nominations? As Jim said, this is difficult, and always a little arbitrary…

  1. People, Places and Bling! – Theadora’s treasure trove of knowledge and beautiful pictures of Paris
  2. Bornstoryteller – tale spinning by Stuart Nager
  3. Euzicasa – George’s blog dedicated to beauty
  4. Musings of a Serial Procrastinator – “there are still some nice people left in this world”
  5. Nine Cent Girl – Fashion, Family, Food… Life!
  6. The Dom Next Door – exactly what it says!
  7. August McLaughlin’s Blog

And to conclude, a summary of the rules:

  • Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post,
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog,
  • Tell 7 things about yourself,
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know.
