Pirate’s Admiration Award



My wonderful train companion Alli nominated me for the Pirate’s Admiration Award. Alli and I also traveled on a ship down the Nile together. It was a cruise ship instead of a pirate ship, same difference in my opinion. Alli has a great blog called The Vintage Postcard. She’s the one that inspired me to join wordpress. I was using other blog sites and just didn’t like them. She writes about her travels around the world. She just got back from New Zealand.

Now I get to pass this award on to bloggers I admire, so if ever I’m completely adrift in Blogger Sea I’ll have my own band of pirates to rescue me.

The rules for Pirate’s Admiration Award are:
1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and a link back.
3. Put on somethin’ frilly, ‘n be tellin’ a blogger ye desire to admire that a Steamin’ Pirate admires ya, ‘n yer passin’ that admiration to him or her to be plundered, if ye so desire.
4. Nominate bloggers for the Pirate’s Admiration Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.
5. Copy and paste the award somewhere on your blog.
