There is nothing quite so thrilling in the blog world as when someone takes the time to acknowledge your words, whether through a comment, a Facebook Like, an e-mail, or… an award!
Recently I was quite delighted to find that my fellow blogger Margaret Christine of “notes from maggie’s farm” had been named as a Liebster Blog award winner, and had paid it forward by passing the award on to me!
The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note.
I understand that the Liebster Blog award recognizes up-and-coming bloggers whose work informs, delights, and rewards us, regularly. Well, if that’s the case, and I was named as a winner, then I am truly honoured and humbled. Thank you so very much, Margaret Christine!
Winners of the Liebster Blog award are asked to pay it back and forward by:
- linking back to the blogger who awarded you
- posting your award to your blog
- nominating five of YOUR favorite young blogs
So without further ado, I am pleased to name the following bloggers as Liebster Blog award winners!
These blogs are all very different from each other, but quite wonderful in their own individual ways. Please take some time to visit and get to know them!
