Yesterday I came upon a blog post by one of my top favourite bloggers Experienced Tutors. Dean was given another blog award but because of getting so many, wanted to skip the usual format of forwarding the award and instead do something else altogether.
This tutor loves bending the rules for fun, and who could blame him. In Dean’s own words:
“I have decided not to pass the award on directly but those of you want it and are willing to pass it on must earn it. So, the rule is, you need to complete the following sentence: “I would love to receive the Liebster Award from Experienced Tutors because. . . ” This is not a competition because all who reply will receive the award.“
Bending the rules is something I aspire doing every day also. I was therefore game from reading the first paragraph, and wrote this on Private Tutor’s blog:
“I would love to receive the Liebster Award from Experienced Tutors because. . . “ … you and your blog have made me laugh so many times, and have made me look out for more books, more grammatical errors and more laughs in my own blog. I would love to pass on the award to some of my followers who deserve a little limelight because of who they are, what they do and what their blog stands for. The award is not about recognition for me, but about recognition for them.“
As you can see in the comments of Experienced Tutors’ blog post, I received a very nice reply, so the award was granted, and now it is my turn to keep on twisting the usual blog rules. Dean deserves the spotlight also as a great critic of society, teacher and someone who spins deliciously sarcastic words and I will stick to his format.
Like I wrote in my own reply, I want all of you to know that this reward is in recognition of everyone who follows, reads, talks and loves my blog, as well as who you are to me, what you do in life and what your blog stands for.
Anyone so who replies to my blog post will be given the award. Simply tell me why you think you deserve the award. Then save and upload the image of Liebster Award and link it to this blog post in the “Link URL” frame.
