Words, music and the return of the Tenuous Lynx: The Liebster award (again!)…

18 Feb

It’s awards season again, with all the hype, scandal and controversy which that entails.
With outrage at the Oscars, grumbling at the Grammy’s and boycotts at the Brits, it’s good to know that there’s one place where prize-giving is still a polite and pleasurable pastime; The Blogosphere.

I’ve been extremely honoured recently, (and throughout my blogging adventure) in that I have received several award nominations on Diary of an Internet Nobody from a wide variety of other bloggers, who have very possibly taken a wrong turn and found themselves diverted to this little backwater, on an obscure side road off the information superhighway.

The Liebster Award was, in fact, the very first one I was nominated for, way back in September 2012, so it’s nice to know that it’s still being passed around the blogging community.

As always, there are a whole set of rules that come with these awards, although they seem to vary considerably, depending on which version you receive.
However, since I never follow the rules anyway it won’t be problem deciding which ones are most relevant to me, (which is fortunate, as I probably wouldn’t qualify under at least two of the variations) but that doesn’t mean I’m any less grateful to be nominated.

This incarnation of the award comes via Brittany at blg2011motherof2, so thank you Brittany, I’m delighted to accept it.

I have decided to bestow my nominations on the last eleven bloggers to follow me, as the number eleven appears to be a feature of award this time around and it seems to be a nice way of showing my gratitude and appreciation to my new readers.
(That’s about the only similarity though, so if you are nominated and want to follow the original rules, go HERE to check them out.)

image I’m a firm believer in the idea that you can tell a lot about people from their taste in music, so instead of telling you a lot of useless facts about myself that you’ll instantly forget, I shall once again be employing the Tenuous Lynx principle, to connect my nominees to songs, bands or albums that I’m fond of, in the hope that you’ll discover something new and interesting to enjoy whilst perusing the blogs I’ve chosen.
