I've been given two blog awards recently. Frankie at Veg Plot kindly awarded me the Egel Nest Blog Award. And Joanna at Joanna's Food awarded me the Nice Matters award.
It's great to get these awards. It feels good to know that other bloggers like what I do here, and it helps to build up the connections between the blogging community.
It inspired me to start an award of my own - the "Change begins at home" award. This is given to bloggers who live what they preach, who try to make the changes in their own lives that they would like to see in the world.
The award rules are:
1. Nominate three bloggers who epitomise "Change begins at home"
2. Link back to the person who nominated you, and link back to this post
3. When you receive the award, you may display the "Change begins at home" button on your blog. If you, like, you can use the following handy html. But if it terrifies you, just save the picture to your own hard drive and do what you usually do to put images on your blog:

That's it! To get the ball rolling, I'd like to nominate the following bloggers as the very first recipients of this prestigious award:
