Warm fuzzy digital hugs to Life at the Manor for nominating Rodney’s Saga.
The Liebster Blog Award is a way to recognize blogs who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word that means beloved and valued.
Unfortunately, I don’t read enough horse-related blogs to have 11 to nominate. I certainly cruise the equine section of the blogosphere.
I’ve found cool individual posts, see my post tomorrow. However, I don’t research the area sufficiently to speak with authority on the subject. (Ask me about science fiction/fantasy books, and I will authority your a$$ off. But I digress.) For routine maintenance, I read my friends, e.g. Writing From the Right Side of the Stall, and folks I have met thru blogging, e.g. Tails from Provence. After that I am more likely to turn to blogs that concern things about which I know nothing, e.g. life as a best-selling science fiction writer on Whatever.
The same holds true for books. I’ve read Dick Francis – who hasn’t? I have a huge collection of horse books [Retail] and a good intentions stack filled with information to help my horses &/or my riding. When it comes time to actually open a book, I’m more likely to read about wild mushrooms [quoted for Inspiration], or a graphic novel about primate research [excerpt here].
The same holds true for LEGO sets. I don’t feel compelled to buy the horse farms or firetrucks. If I want to fuss with either, I stick with the full-scale versions.
At least I’m consistent.
Do you read horse blogs/books more than other subjects?
What equine blogs am I missing out on?
