Hey, look what KathyR awarded me....
Blogging is a funny old thing, really. My Hubby teaches media studies with particular reference to IT and one of the many things he discusses is blogs. He says that women use personal blogs in a completely different way to men...men use them to disseminate information while women are more likely to use them as social networks. It seemed so blindingly self-evident to me that blogging is a way to have an extended gossip with like minded souls that I was amazed to hear that more male dominated blog networks aren't like this, but apparently Hubby's wargaming blog gets very few comments, and even less social chat, lol.
Still, it tickles me when someone on the far side of the world nominates me for an award because she likes my blog. (Presumably!) It's fun to see the hits on the stats map, mostly from the english speaking nations but I've had hits from places like Indonesia, Malta, Greece and South America. Repeat hits, even. The knitting and blogging world is a small place, really, despite the geographical differences!
Anyhow, the Award Rules state:-
1)Post the award on your blog.
2)Add a link to the person who gave you the award.
3)Nominate at least 4 others.
4)Leave a comment on their blog so they can pass it on.
Come to think of it though, even though I've just finished weebling on about blogging reaching the furthest reaches of the planet, three of the blogs I'm going to nominate are local ones...
1) Natalie, at The Yarn Yard. Nothing to do with her yarn (though it is gorgeous and I own several skeins) but because her blog makes me laugh and it gives me ideas about things that are nothing to do with knitting. I'm still working on the larder challenge, for example!
2) Jean, because without her I'd know wheech all about American politics, lol.
3) Helen, because she introduced me first to online jigsaws. I am rubbish at them but I think they're the sort of thing that might be good for my increasingly foggy perimenopausal brain. A sort of daily neuron workout!
4) What Housework, who has the sort of manic outdoor lifestyle I would dearly love to have, and the most bloggable cat too. (Put "Milo" into the search on her blog for the stories.)
