Interesting Reads

>>  Monday, January 09, 2012

I tried to be a big wide bloggety circle blogger for a while.  I tried to read lots, and my word there are a lot of interesting blogs out there but I just don't have time to commit the interest I think longer term readership involves.  Now I tend to stick with the ones that entertain, make me laugh, make me cry and generally stir up some emotion in me.

Funky Wellies is one of the blogs I read.  She has a different angle on photography (I like photography), lives in Germany (I like Germany) and a life very different to mine (I'd like one of them too!).  I like reading different.

Well she's passed on the  Liebster award. This  is given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  (What Funky Wellies may not remember is that I used to have a lot of followers and I accidentally deleted them all; trust me it can be done! So now I have no idea how many people read my blog.  Actually It would be quite nice to know but then if it was more than the handful I know about I would feel under pressure so maybe it's best just leaving the answer blowing in the wind.)

Anyhoo, To share my favourite reads with you:

NB is amazingly entertaining and with an educated angle,  his writings on the middle east and politics are easy to follow, he goes to different, bizarre and extremely interesting places London and has a fine interest in art (street art being a firm favourite of him and me) 

Auntie Gwen
She makes me feel good about my own life!  What her teenagers don't get up to isn't worth crying with laughter over. But what her teenagers do get up to is.

Ayaks Turkish Delight
Ayak married a Turk and moved to Turkey some time ago.  A grandmother to her UK family, she has an extremely interesting life in Turkey on the back of old motorbikes, working at holiday resorts, and generally dealing with the difficulties of a women (and foreign at that) in Turkey. and the weather there isn't all it's cracked up to be - read about the leaking house!

A Bavarian Sojourn
Formally from the UK and recently moved from Scandinavia to Bavaria, she has an amazing writing talent and shares so much about the customs and happenings of the country she is in.  I learn so much from this blog in its easy to read way and of course she has fantastic photos, which I adore.

Squidge is the daughter of an American mum growing up in the UK.  Really this blog for me is about Lindy's photography and it's a bit like watching my family 6 years ago.  We had the Australian asking all the questions that Lindy now often poses!

These were a hard 5 to pick, the blog list down my left side is worth a trip through if you find yourself sat with a cup of coffee.

If you are named here and want to pass on the links then this is the science bit, there is no obligation:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your 5 blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you have sent the award to will forward it to their favourite bloggers.
