Dredging up memories of my german studies at school, many .. many.. aeons ago.. I think the word liebster means something like “dearest” or maybe “favourite” would be more apt. Either way, it’s the name of an online award designed (I think) to recognise up-and-coming bloggers.
Apparently 1 of the rules is that its meant to be offered to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.. And I suspect this will be in an attempt to encourage newbie writers, because if there is one thing I’ve learned in the last few months of blogging: watching your stats can become alarmingly addictive, if one is that way inclined. And I am.. I believe I’ve said it before – I need to get out more. I know..
Anyway, this week I was nominated for this award by two lovely bloggers that I follow: http://mrtinney.com/ and http://klextin.wordpress.com/ A big thanks to you both, I appreciate the fact that you read and enjoy my blog 🙂
In accepting this award, the recipient must agree to:
• Thank the person who gave them the award and link back to their blog – Check!
• Copy and paste the award to their blog – Check!
• Reveal the 5 blogs they have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog – hmm!
OK this is going to be hard because the blogs I follow are all fabulous and I hate the idea of not linking to them all, grr grr grrrr Yeah yeah I know, I’m a wuss.. Hmm if I apply the followers rule that may eliminate a few cos I know some of the blogs I follow have gazillions of readers .. lemme go look …
(back soon.. chat amongst yourselves k)
Right, I’m back. And this has been very stressful!!
But without further ado, here is my short list of 5 blogs I think you should check out:
1. An amusing writerwho’s blog makes me smile, laugh and / or think!
2. Following this woman’s search for a mate is a great read, very entertaining .. if a little frustrating at times. To be fair, that’s just from being a spectator, spare a thought for her! 😉
3. I am pretty sure this
man oops woman will have more than 200 followers but her blog doesn’t say, so she’s nominated. Check out “shit her kid says“, it’s laugh out loud material. Oh and as to the man comment – when I first read her blog, I thought she was a he. It was a compliment!!
4. Everyone (boys and girls) should follow this blog, he’s very insightful. I just recently found him and am glad that I did..
5. This woman is not just a fabulous writer, she’s smart and an all round good person. Be sure to check Julie out!
This has been really shiddy to do actually, because I’ve left out being able to wax lyrical about Edward Hotspur: one of my fave bloggers on the web, then there’s BrainRants, Three Months to Forty, Be the Change: Leave the Cave!, and my spoon buddy verynormal. Plus the lovely kibble queen *grin* then there is this very sweet man, and Heather Christena Schmidt, The Byronic Man, Trask Avenue, psychodynamom *deep breath* then there’s the adventures of johnsep and the writings of life in the boomer lane and Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge and the beautiful Deidra Alexander’s Blog and Unwrittentruth’s Blog and Robotic Rhetoric, the beautiful KayJay, plus my crazy new pal Chris and and and ..
Ahhhggghh it’s all too hard I’m SO sorry if I’ve omitted anyone, but basically if I follow you it’s cos I think you’re all great and I love reading what you write and hate hate hated having to pick just 5..
Happy New Year to everyone in my blogging world 🙂
