The Liebster Award
The lovely Lora over at F-Words has bestowed upon me the Liebster Award! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
This award is given by bloggers to other bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. I’m well within that limit! THANK YOU, PEOPLE, FOR NOT LIKING ME MORE!
These awards seemed awfully spammy to me at first (as I said when I first got the Versatile Blogger Award), but since then I’ve given it some thought and decided that it’s really not so very chain-letter-y. After all, you don’t HAVE to obey the rules for the awards, and there are no promises of dire consequences if you don’t pass them on within a certain amount of time.
On the contrary, they really are an awfully nice way for bloggers to recognize each other’s work and to foster a feeling of community. By giving these awards, we recognize our peers and encourage them to keep up their good work.
So thank you, Lora. I am sincerely honored that you thought of me for this award, and I will strive to be worthy of it (by not sucking).
Here are the rules:
- Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog. (THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!)
- Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award. (Diddit!)
- Copy and paste the award onto your blog. (See above. Isn’t it pretty?)
- Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. (See below.)
- Let them know they have been chosen by leaving them a comment.
Now, it’s really hard to tell with most blogs what their follower count is. I’ve had to do some guesswork, based on number of Facebook followers, how long they’ve been blogging, how many comments they tend to have, and a small amount of sorcery.
Yes, I know that that’s six and not five. I can count almost twice that high. But since I’m not 100% certain that all of those have fewer than 200 followers (even sorcery can be mistaken sometimes), I decided to throw in an extra one. They’re all excellent blogs, well worth the time to check out.
The Three Red Bins of Blogging Award
This award has been bestowed upon me by the inimitable Dotty Headbanger. It’s a great honor (or honour, if you will) and you can possibly obtain your own here. But only if you’re nice to Dotty and follow her rules. And you better be nice to Dotty, or I will kick your ass. Soundly.
May this award ever serve as a reminder to me that I must only publish high quality rubbish.
