A Friend Indeed

A two-parted ‘thank you’ must be said to my good friend Zoe, who is always a friend indeed when I am in need!

The first part is a few days late, as I’ve been resting on my holiday and not been blogging – but here it is: Thank you Zoe for awarding me the Liebster Blog Award.

The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.

"Liebster" in German means "dearest", so as part of the Liebster award tradition, I am going to pass this award to 5 blogs that I value, and that have both inspired and motivated me.

To accept the award, you must:

1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.

As I am a definite blog-newbie, I am touched that Zoe thought to spread my news, and so...

1.      ...has to be a pass-back to Zoe and her craft-inspired blog, http://craftygasheadzo.blogspot.com/  Please do have a look, as her craft creations are amazing, and you'll be wanting one for yourself - I’m lucky enough to have her prize-winning original canvas on my wall (’cause it was my Christmas present!), not that I'm bragging, mind!

2.      Goes to Susie and her blog http://www.letstalkaboutdepression.blogspot.com/ , which showcases the experiences and emotions of someone who suffers depression (a.k.a. black dog).  Though nothing is sugar-coated, Susie’s open, honest and courageous struggle will inform and inspire you.

3.      Um...err... Well...  Number 3 is...  I don’t actually know!  Being new to blog-land, I’ve not found that many blogs to read – and those I do tend to be bigger than the Liebster’s cap of 200 followers.  So, Numbers 3, 4 and 5 are over to you: if you read or write a blog (or blogs) that you think will take my fancy, I’d love to know about them!  Please leave a comment on here or over on Facebook and I’ll be glad to have a read of what’s out there.

Getting back to my ‘thank you’, the second part is a technical one: thank you, Zoe, for being the best technical-archaeologist I know and trying for ages today to resurrect my archaic printer – only to discover that it is, indeed, a relic of the technological age!  Driver updates (Pardon?  I know, I don’t have a clue either!) for it are no longer archived online, let alone available, and so the only path forward is to buy a brand-spanking new one!  With Zoe’s guidance, I now know what I’m looking for and will pur-chase forth-with this week...oh, and Zoe?  Please can you be on standby in case I can’t get the damn thing working?!  Ta muchly, hon :0)
