Līgo Circle of Appreciation


It was 03:00 hrs yesterday morning when I was about to shut down my laptop.’Then up in the top right hand corner of my screen a comment flashed up orange. Marsha was commenting and at the end threw me a curve ball with the offer of my joining the Līgo Circle of Appreciation. Most of you know me well enough to know that I am not against Awards but all the extra work that goes with Awards. I thought about accepting this or not overnight and have decided to participate, not for myself but for the two bloggers that I am about to ask to join the group.

Here is how the  Līgo Circle of Appreciation works:

For a duration of 22+ days, beginning October 1, 2012, 2 bloggers per day will be invited to join the circle.  Again a reminder that this is an appreciation, not an award.

To participate in the Līgo Circle of Appreciation, you must:

  •  Complete this sentence about blogging: ”A great blog is…
  •  Refer back to the blogger who invited you.
  •  Invite 2 bloggers to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation on a post.

A great blog is to me a work of art. Not necessarily in design and structure but the content and feeling, the reason why the blog is created and what motivates the blogger on the course chosen. There are many blogs I have visited over the few months I have been blogging and for me two stand out who I will ask in a moment to join the group. The reasons will be made clear shortly.

Marsha is to blame for asking me to join the group. We have met only once on a windswept blog, we traded pleasantries and jocular banter of which she is still recovering. So Marsha, thank you for your three o’clock in the morning invite to the Līgo Circle of Appreciation.

The first blogger who I would be honoured to ask to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation is  Ute whom I have known for her positive, happy approach to blogging. Her philosophy is to make people happy, have fun and enjoy life to the full. She enjoys classical style music of which her blog has a section designated for such pleasures. So Ute it is my great pleasure to ask and I hope you will accept and enjoy the Līgo Circle of Appreciation.

The second blogger whom I have great pleasure in asking to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation is Lori whom I also have great admiration for. Not only is she suffering pretty much all the time with severe migraine but somehow, I don’t know how, make Lapghans of Love in her own words “These are scrap lapghans I make to donate to Alzheimer patients”. Her flowing writings are prolific and detailed on her physical and mental condition. So Lori I will be honoured if you will accept the offer of joining the Līgo Circle of Appreciation.
