I’ve been the blogging equivalent of a bad friend. We all know the type – they take weeks to respond to a message, if at all, and then claim that they’ve been “super busy”. Not good enough. In my case it’s time to make things right.
I was recently done the honour of being nominated for a Liebster Blog Award by my fellow whisky blogger Whisky Woman. WW: firstly – apologies for the delay in formally acknowledging the award, and secondly – big thanks for choosing me.
The Liebster, I’m given to understand, is awarded to emerging bloggers, the purpose being to spotlight their work and hopefully boost their following.
It works like this:
- Thank the giver and link back to their blog. Tick.
- Pass on the award to 3-5 selected bloggers and let them know by leaving a comment on their blogs. See below. Half-tick.
- Copy and paste the award on your blog. Tick.
So, here are some bloggers worthy of extra attention:
Magic stuff. A class act. This guy wields words like a hammer. Witty irreverence at its hard hitting best, fuck you very much.
I was chuffed to contribute a post to the Dojo some time ago – check it out here. These dudes have the inside line on popular culture, Joburg style! Prolific, and consistently witty.
South African whisky bloggers
We’re a rare breed. There are only a handful of whom I’m aware. These sterling gentlemen are out there flying the whisky flag in darkest Africa– please give them your support.
Let’s Talk Whisky. I believe Marsh’s blog is down due to other commitments. Here’s hoping it’s temporary.
To all you bloggers out there – keep the faith and may the dram be with you!
