Very Inspiring Blog Award…. Oh Yeahhhhh!

by limebirdwriters

Apologies for the delay in posting thanks for this award, but I have been in a cocoon of illness for the past few days. I would like to outstretch a massive thanks to the wonderfully talented JM McDowell and Judith Atwood for gifting us with the Very Inspiring Blog award.


I think the idea of this one speaks for itself and it’s so amazing to be thought of as inspiring! When I started this site, it was just me on my lonesome, praying that even one person would comment on my blog. I can’t believe that people are still visiting and commenting, it makes me all happy inside. So in honour of this, the ‘things about me’ will be changed to ‘things about Limebird’. I hope you all enjoy!

7 Things About Limebird

1) I thought of the idea for Limebird while lying down on some grass in a park near my work. It was unbelievably sunny and I sat for 30 minutes scribbling ideas in my notebook.

2) Limebird was hatched on the 29th September 2011.

3) We didn’t get our first comment until our 10th post. The first person to ever comment on the blog was ‘Just Another Wannabe Hack‘ , followed closely by LimebirdMike and then LimebirdNeeks.

4) We got our 10,000th view on the 5th January 2012, just 3 months after launching.

5) The most views we’ve ever had in one day was 408, on January 17th 2012. (Huzzah)

6) To date, we have 17 Limebird Writers, from the UK, to the US to SA, writing on a wide range of topics.

7) I am still so amazingly happy to see that people are still coming to the site and so unbelievably grateful. Thank you so much.


Ok, so now according to the award, I have to nominate some bloggers.

I know this is cheating a bit, but honestly these are the writers that inspire me. Seriously, go and check out these blogs, they’re great. If it wasn’t for these guys, Limebird wouldn’t be what it is today and they keep me going. You guys are awesome. *group hug*
