Take a bow: The Lovely Blog Awards

I was very touched and excited today to receive a Lovely Blog Award. That it came from Chic Mama, who has supported me on this blog with her kind & thoughtful comments right from the beginning, is especially lovely. We are both going through difficult times, and it's been extraordinarily helpful to know someone else in a similar situation.

This is the first award I've received for A Life Reclaimed, and it's amazing to think that people actually read my blog! I have to now pass the award on to five other lovely bloggers.

The women below have been very supportive, leaving much appreciated comments here, making my entry into the blog world feel a little less like diving into the dark unknown. Of course, there are more of you who I would like to mention in dispatches, who welcomed me with open arms, and I shall look forward to exploring all of your blogs properly as I become more conversant with the ways of the interweb!

Miss Whistle
Wonderful gardening, cooking & poetry dispatches from the intelligent side of Los Angeles

Helena Halme
Who write such interesting posts about her life

Novelist Kate Lord Brown's fascinating What Kate Did Next where she writes about writing in an enlightening manner

Everybody Says Don't
who loves dogs, restaurants, tea, theatre, wine & fashion. (We may be from different generations but this is a girl after my own heart!)

And finally, I must mention Liberty London Girl
This is the senior daughter's blog. She writes about fashion, food, dogs and her life in America & elsewhere. She is responsible for the technicalities of my blog (linking, blogrolls and more), so deserves a big thank you!

Thank you so much - a lovely award from a lovely blog. So glad you are enjoying blogging (it was a bit of a revelation to me too at first that there is such a global community of likeminded writers) x

Thank you so much! I really enjoy your blog, with all your honesty. Yes, I think for interests and love of dogs we often are singing off the same hymn sheet! Thanks again, and have a good weekend xxx

Hello folks,

What online zines do you read and would recommend?

For all you rockabilly people out there I recommend The Enough Fanzine. It is one of the first ska ezines on the internet.

They have throusands of interviews from the most underground bands all over the world. Check them out online: [url=]Enough Fanzine[/url]. Best of it all, they are 100% non-profit and just helping the scene!

Looking forward to your recommendations.
