Now this is the kind of post that you'll either read or completely ignore. Scipio over at Palladian Guard was kind enough to put Too Much Free Time as one of his five recommended blogs for a Liebster Blog award. Now these kind of viral posts crop up on the blogosphere every now and then, sometimes not even as obvious viral posts (here or here) and if you keep in mind that they're just a bit of fun, no one needs to get too stressed about them appearing everywhere the last couple days (unlike this guy.)
The rules that turn up in all these posts are as follows:
- Copy and paste the award on your blog linking it to the blogger who has given it you.
- Pass the award to your top 5 favorite blogs with less than 200 followers by leaving a comment on one of there posts to notify them that they have won the award and listing them on your own blog.
- Sit back and bask in the warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing you have made someone's day!
- There is no obligation to pass this onto someone else but its nice if you take the time to do so.
So, without further ado, I'll get onto my five picks. Although, to be fair, I don't think I follow any bad blogs, so anything on the blog list on the right should give an entertaining read.
Martin over at Fire Broadside. Lots of sci-fi and whatnot, a nice mixed bag of content regularly updated.
Hendybadger at Tales of a Tabletop Skirmisher. Again a sci-fi/pulp site I've been following for a fair while (back to the PP days.)
Too Much Lead by AKI (I think.) The first individual i.e. not corporate blog I properly read, he has a great range of historical armies and posts some great battle reports.
Ben, Coops and DrCox who write Breakthrough Assault. A great mainly Flames of War blog that is not at all like the many fanboy sites out there. Also, Ben was suckered into the Normandy terrain deal too...
Lastly, and not just because he nominated me, Scipio of the Palladian Guard. WW2 and 40K mainly, and you have to admire the commitment to background material (fluff to you 40Kers out there.)
Thanks Scipio, glad to know there are some out there reading my ramblings.
