Blog of Substance Award

Posted on 12th July 2010 in Blog/ meme/ Twitter

The lovely, kind and generous Garry @himupnorth has awarded me the Blog of Substance Award. Now he did create a new rugged, manly badge for the this meme however being as I am a girl, I am sticking with the girly one as above!


1) Give groveling gratitude filled thanks to the blogger who awarded you

2) Share your five word blogging philosophy

3) Nominate further bloggers of substance

Until this moment I hadn’t really considered that I had a ‘blogging philosophy’ however I shall now attempt to come up with one in just 5 words. This is difficult for me, I tend to prefer to use as many words as possible, but here goes:





You may have noticed that was just a smidge over 5 words…..but if I had to pick a lone 5, then I would pick the last 5 – TELL  IT  LIKE  IT  IS.  Although to be fair I think the top one is probably more accurate ;o)

Now I need to pass the award onto others. I personally think that everyone who takes the time to sit write a blog deserves a Blog of Substance award, as such if I have ever visited and commented upon your blog, it’s fairly safe to say I think yours is a blog of substance. However, in order to play the game,  some people for me to pass The Blog of Substance Award onto:

First and foremost was going to be @Metajugglamum but I see that Garry already tagged her (damn you Garry) so instead I move to:






Ladies, I pass the Blog of Substance award on to you, well deserved in every case.

      Lol thank you, I made it pink to emphasize it’s ‘girlieness’ and then got carried away!

    You lady, are bloody lovely. Thank you. I’ve got verbal diarrhoea so I’m going to struggle to come up with a philosophy in just five words. I would say I tell it how it is too, but you’ve said that *puts thinking cap on*

        obviously in real life I can actually count and would have spotted that it is only 4 words…… *hides*

    Thank you for accepting the award, Lisa!

    A new look blog of substance, no less. I’m motivated to shift my arse and move mine. Sorry for tagging Metajugglamum afore ye, but she too is worthy. She hasn’t accepted, to my knowledge, so maybe your mention will spur her on?

    Love the five-word philosophy. Nice one. :-)

    Dear Lise, Many congratulations on your award! Your blog look fab and you look such a beautiful lady. Thank you very much for your Secret Post Club presents. I’ve just received from the postman and I’m so excited. Many thanks for the books, they look wonderful. I’m a disaster in the kitchen but I love to try new recipes and The Seasonal Cookbook is full with delicious and healthy recipes I will love to try! And what a great thought to send me a cookery book for my daughter as well! She loves cooking and baking so much that just yesterday I enrolled her in a Masterchef Cookery Skills course in August. She will be as thrilled as me when she gets home from school. Wish you and your family a wonderful summer. Many thanks again for your lovely present. Ciao. A.
