Very Inspiring Blogger Award, thanks limseemin!


Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Thank you so very much, limseemin of It’s ME blog, for nominating my blog for the Very Inspiring Blogger award!

The rules are to thank and link back to the blogger who has nominated you, then post the award logo to your blog, write a post on the nomination and nominate 15 other very inspiring bloggers. Notify them; and tell 7 things about yourself.

Seven things about myself:

1. Recently, I discovered a new WordPress feature. If, while writing a blog post, you highlight a word, or group of words, and then click on “link”, then you will get a choice of linking to earlier blog posts in which that word (or part of a sentence, or whole sentence) occurs. A nice feature for me; as I quite often link back to my old blog posts on the same subject.

2. Where did most visitors to my blog come from this week?

    • Thank you, Dear Kitty, for conferring the Very Inspiring Blogger Award on SoundEagle’s website entitled Queensland Orchid Society, and for recognizing that many orchids are also facing habitat destruction and extinction.

      How I miss the cute and odd looking Bush Stone Curlew on my back street! The traffic, dogs, cats and rodents have really decimated them. Sigh . . . . .
