Līgo Circle of Appreciation

The yearly Līgo celebration happens every summer solstice in Latvia.
At this time we adorn our heads with Līgos of flowers, oak leaves,
grasses and plants. We join circles around bonfires and celebrate life,
and our appreciation of each other.

Here’s our
Līgo Circle of Appreciation
among fellow bloggers.

For duration of 22 days, starting on 1st October 2012, we will be inviting
2 bloggers per day
to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation.

PLEASE NOTE: This is an Appreciation, NOT an Award.

To fully participate in the Līgo Circle of Appreciation:
* Complete this sentence about blogging: ”A great blog is…
* Refer back to the blogger who invited you
* Invite 2 bloggers to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation on a post

    1. Thanks so much for taking the big step and helping to make the circle! Copy the logo and paste it on your post and/or sidebar, invite two people, link their blogs to your post, finish the sentence about what a great blog is if you would like, and post! In your post you should have the information (above) that your invitees need to invite two more bloggers each. You can link back to me too if you like.

    1. Sveiciens rudeni! Ja, man nez kapec likas, ka Gunta izklausas latviski, un neesmu maldijusies. 🙂 Skatijos uz blogos celojosajiem apbalvojumiem, un pec paris ideju apmainam ar vel kadu gudru galvu sads ir rezultats.


      1. Jums tā pat sveiciens rudenī! Diemžēl man latviešu valoda nav tik tekoša cik vēlētos, bet tā pat mokos vien tāļāk. Ar prieku sekošu šo blogu! Vienmēr ir jauki redzēt ko citi tautieši darās.

  17. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Very much appreciated. I see Morrighan asked you to send her an email so that she could put the Ligo Seal in her side bar. I’m not sure my problem is my computer or just the operator.

    1. You are welcome. The 22nd of October was just the time I took a pause for inviting people but the circle can (and does) keep growing. If you find it interesting to be a part of, time is not an issue at all.
