I have been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award thanks to Marjon at moment2smile. It is great to have some new folks visit my blog, especially on the eve of an exciting climb. From what I understand, the idea behind the award is to spread connectivity and bring more traffic to interesting and cool blogs that have less then 200 followers. It’s kinda like a blogger chain letter only better. From poking around…I see that “Liebster” could mean “beloved” or “favorite” in German…and indeed, I remember Oma calling me her little “liebchen” meaning sweetheart or dear.
Here’s the idea as I understand it:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favourite bloggers and keep it going!
I googled around and have enjoyed reading people’s interpretation of the award and have liked getting to know some new blogs as a result…so I’ve decided to join in and share some of my favourite blogs…I don’t know how many subscribers they have-only that I enjoy reading them.
In no specific order, I am awarding the Liebster Blog Award to…(drum roll please)…
