The Liebster Blog Award

Well it comes to me today to thank Mama Stokes for awarding me with a The Liebster Blog Award yesterday. I know Mama Stokes is one of my regular readers; often sending me an encouraging and thoughtful message after reading my latest post. Our experiences as mother’s are very different but Mama Stokes also blogs about her life as a Mummy and her beautiful daughter Imogen.

I’m quite touched to have been listed as a Liebster Blog Awardee! This blog has been one of my lifelines for the past 6 months since I started it; even if no-one read it I would still write. The outlet to express my grief and life experience as an angel mother is invaluable to my mental recovery but I find it amazing that is also touches other people. This blog is for me but it is also for raising awareness of the real impact of stillbirth.

Today I get to pass on the award to bloggers and blogs that I enjoy and regularly read. In an attempt to ensure the love is spread around I’m going to try and not overlap others that I know have already been nominated!

The Liebster Blog award is for people with ‘little’ blogs (less than 300 subscribers or followers) to share blog love and spread the word.

The rules are:

1. Post displaying the award, (on the right hand side of the page!) linking back to the person who awarded you (check!)
2. Choose your own blog picks (below) and let them know they’re awarded
3. Hope everyone discovers some new favourites
4. Revel in the blog love!

So here are my Liebster Bloggers:
  • Waiting for Stanley and Lucy – A lady from my Babs virtual world, this a very new blog about this wonderful lady’s experiences as she waits for the start of IVF treatment to have her beautiful family.
  • La Douce Vie – a lovely blogger who was immensely supportive of the bereaved mother’s of Mumsnet following the fallout of that disgusting Eastender’s storyline! I love reading about her life in Switzerland!
  • Running the Tube Lines – a blog by an angel Daddy whose baby twins died and were stillborn in January 2007. He is currently raising awareness and money for Sands by travelling the entire length of the London Underground!
  • Secretly In Bordeaux – another fairly new blog. This lady is another lovely member of my beautiful Babs virtual world. Loving all things fashionable and fabulous, this is the lady to ask about for clothes, hair and make-up advice!
  • Imagery Inspired – my husband’s blog. It isn’t wordy like mine. He’s shares just some of the photographs he takes and I think he is fabulous! After Anabelle’s death he immersed himself in a hobby he had had for a long time, now we’re slowly turning it into a business. Imagery inspired by Anabelle.

Happy exploring everyone!

You write so beautifully I am touched by reading it and feel you have come so far in such a short time, I think you should publish your blog so that others can understand and benefit from your experiences. You are a very strong and brave woman.

Thank you for your kind words - a couple of people have said this to me now, but I've no idea how I would even go about publishing it!
