in my book !!!!!! The world needs a loads of starlight and all together we can do the job.
When I started on my blog, I followed a good friend’s advice – but it turned out to be so much more for my visitors and followers – and for myself. It has been such education, especially when decided to jump on the A-Z blogging challenge 2012 and chosen my native home county as theme, Sweden.
That was a learning curve without limits – and there went in some deep research too – it took at times days to finish one post. I was quite new to blogging at that time, started in end of January and the A-Z challenge was in April.
It was then I realized that blogging was a lot more and that I had so much more to give then food, travel and descent photos.
Will do it again next year, with Sweden as my theme again. We are and we have so much to share with the rest of the world.
After I chosen my theme “Forever” (really a wedding theme, the closest I will get to a wedding of my own) and I chose “Summer Afternoon” by the Danish pinter Peder Severin Kröyer as my headline photo – have always loved this painting. And here we are – you and me.
I don’t try to be clever in my posts – I try to be me .. and give everything my angel on what I see, hear, eat, smell, touch and feel, because I have 6 senses.
Then of course I do it all my way …. on my Swenglish. As I say in “About Viveka”… not all is about me – but a lot are.
So when I was nominated to “The Blog of the Year Award 2012” I had to do a bit of soul searching, have received so many awards this year and I have been so thankful and honored over everyone, but they were raining over me and I lost track of them and I just gave up on it and never passed the last ones on. I know –NAUGHT GIRL!
This “The Blog of the Year Award 2012” is something total new and I have decided to make a true afford and carry this one through. We will be collect stars .. and that job I find both sweet and interesting.For every nomination we get of this award – we get another star, no more than 6.
I have been nominated by Crazy Train To Tinky Town and here comes the rules, because there is always rules and that is the problem with me, that I’m so bad on following rules. Always have at least some toes outside the “law”
Here are the rules – and they are not mine.

And now to my much selected bunch of nominees – wish I could nominate all of you – after all are we all worth it. I have chosen my nominees, because they always take their time to read my posts, make a replay and they always replay on my comments, how stupied or wrongly spelled they ever may be. Because as I said – it is ALL about ME! Because I’m one of the brightest stars there is *laughter. And I’m not afraid of the darkness neither.
In no particular order.
