Link of the Day: Read and Wander

Flavorwire:  The Flâneur in Fiction – Great Books About Wandering the City

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After reading a post by one of my favorite blog authors, TBM, and her lovely stroll around London, I just knew this article had to be my Link of the Day!

I love to travel, and there honestly is nothing better than wandering, sometimes aimlessly, around a new city.  There really is no need to necessarily visit the “tourist destinations” of a new place, because it’s the sights, sounds, and people you discover while exploring that makes you really connect with your surroundings.

So, to coincide with TBM’s post today (and I do suggest you check out her blog), check out the link above to see some interesting books that focus on exploring and wandering.

Happy Friday All!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You and the Handing Out of “The Liebster Award”

Mine’s the first one in the second row

I was quite surprised to see that I was Freshly Pressed yesterday!  It definitely made my day and excited me to no end!  The comments seemed never-ending (and I did my best to answer each person), the likes kept on coming, my followers practically tripled, and my view bar literally went through the stat’s roof!  

So, thank you WordPress!  I thank you for choosing me as a Freshly Pressed blog.  I also want to thank you to everyone who commented, gave extra sleeping tips and advice, and just took the time to read my post.  I appreciate it!  Also, thank you to my followers and WELCOME to my new followers.  I hope I will provide you with posts that you enjoy reading!  

So thank you, thank you, thank you!

I also want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to T.B.M. at the 50 Year Project.  They have been so nice as to continue commenting on my posts and just recently, hand out the Liebster Blog Award to me.  So, I thank you, T.B.M.!  🙂

So now, according to the award, I need to follow these steps:

If you receive the award, you should:

1) Thank the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2)Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3) Post the award on your blog

4) Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Internet–other writers.

5) And best of all–have fun and spread the karma!

First though, before I give this to 5 other blogs, can anyone please tell me what a Liebster is?!  If you can, I will thank you, thank you, thank you too!  

So, on to the 5 blogs I wish to award this to (in no particular order).

RumpydogBecause what’s better than a blog written by a dog, especially a beautiful Husky like Rumpy.  Everyday,  there are cute posts, interviews of other pets, and animal support where he gets important animal issues out in the open.  Plus, his owner Jen is pretty cool, too!  😉

Should Be ReadingThis blog provides me with my daily book memes.  For all you book lovers out there who want to talk about books and share your current reads, this is a blog that you should follow!

Limebird WritersI love this blog and I check it daily, especially now during NaNoWriMo time.  They have different bloggers who post, but every post contains amazing writing tips, inspiration or motivation.  For those writers out there, this is a great blog!

Classy GallieLiterally LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY, this blog and blogger are amazing.  She’s hysterical and her posts always contain some kind of picture and tag that will cause milk to squirt from your nose.  She’s one of my favorites!

Animal CouriersI love this company and I love their blog.  You can tell that they aren’t just an animal travel agent, but that they truly do love animals.  The pictures and stories of each animal traveler is definitely worth a look!

And these wonderful blogs get my vote for them recieving the Liebster Award!  Again, what is a Liebster?!

Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you All!
