  1. I have recommended your blog in my latest post. Someone nominated me for an award but I have modified the rules slightly so there is no pressure on you to “accept” the award in return. If you have time, feel free to check out my post about it http://theworldoutsidethewindow.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/enter-the-dragon/ The award is about loyal readers but I have written about the blogs that have really inspired me or encouraged me… All the best John
