The Time Has Come : Award Appreciation Time…

While I have travelled over the past 4 months I was honoured to receive two awards from bloggers that have followed our road trip. I love this acknowledgement from fellow bloggers and appreciate that they have taken the time to let me know they are out there but also with me in cyberspace.

Now I have been very remiss in not following up immediately with a post to thank and acknowledge them. It is difficult when on the road to fit these important things in. Sometimes the internet connection is very slow or non-existent. Sometimes we travel long distances and at the end of the day the energy levels can just get me through the basic functions ie. setting up the van, having happy hour, meeting and greeting other travellers (very important) getting food, having a shower. Of course also have to do the site seeing of the area we are in.Then every day it is check through the days photos and post to the blog (if I can).

So you can see life on the road is very busy.

But now we have come to a full stop in Townsville while Matilda is waiting for surgery and I have time to thank these lovely bloggers….

So now, drum roll please…..

I have taken all these 20 blogs from my “feeds” section (it is the button next to the favourite tab). So when you click on these links it will take you to the feed, you then have to click again to get to the blog. (I hope I have explained that OK)

I do not subscribe via e-mail to my favourites as when I am not able to check my inbox regularly it can get very over-loaded. So I RSS the ones I want to follow then I can look at them when it is convenient.

    Thank you for including me in your list of Reader Appreciation blogs, which flummoxed me (hope that;s spelt properly). Will respond after this work crunch has subsided… but had to say ‘thank you’ right away!
