Illuminating Blogger Award

12 Jun

For some time now, I’ve been watching the awards flying around my favourite bloggers sites with some moments of envy waiting for someone to look my way and consider my blog deserving and worthy of recognition. There is something mighty special and incredibly powerful about being recognised by ones peers and such recognition can not be taken lightly or ignored. And so it is with much excitement that I relay to you, dear readers, that today I have been recognised by regular reader Narf77 from The Road to Serendipity for the  Illuminating Blogger Award.

The award requires me to do a few things. Firstly, I must thank Fran from Serendipity Farm for bestowing this award on me. Your journey to sustainable lifestyles on your Tasmanian farm is quite inspirational (and stuff of jealousy and envy!), and I am so glad we found each other on the interwebs! Thank you, friend.

Next, I must share one thing about myself. This tid bit of personal information will be nothing new for people who regularly follow my other blog The Environmental Rhi-Source, but for quite sometime I was a wildlife carer who specialised in reptiles and bats. In my role as a reptile handler, I would often be required to move snakes away from potential areas of conflict with humans. In this photo below, I am handling a venomous Red Bellied Black Snake, one of my favourite Australian snakes.

And now I must nominate a few people to also receive the award. This is the real difficult part. Five blogs who inspire me. Only five?!?! These nominations appear in a random order.

Charles and Kimberly’s Recipes – A great food blog filled with delicious recipes. Just the other day they put up the most amazing scallops recipe that looks divine!

Danny’s Kitchen has become quite the food bloggers blog. Danny has a unique blogging style that is warm and inviting and his new videos staring DJ have become a run away hit.

Korena in the Kitchen has been such a strong sourdough influence for me of late. Sourdough lovers should check some of her more recent posts regarding sourdough pastries for some mouth-watering inspiration.

Terrified Tastebuds is my source of food porn! Deb makes some amazing foods through her chef classes and really is an amazing cook and blogger.

Ragamuffin Diaries never ever fails to impress me. I have featured some of Rebekah’s stuff here with delight. Be sure to check out her recent vegan choc peanut butter spread for some inspiration!

There are so many other blogs I would love to bestow some blog award love to, but they will have to wait until I get another award!

One again, thank you Fran and the Illuminating Blogger Award program.

    Congratulations, Rhianna! I think sometimes people make the error in assuming that someone with talents such as yours have previously been nominated! But whatever the delay, it isn’t because you haven’t been appreciated. Your posts are such a resource! I’ll also look forward to reading some of your nominees! Debra
