I was quite surprised and more than a bit excited to find out that Jodi over at jodistone had presented me with The Liebster Award. Thank you Jodi for recognizing my blog with this award! Jodi’s blog, which tells of her adventures with her two dogs Sampson and Delilah, is always a joy to read and usually has me laughing out loud. Sampson is such the handsome gentleman dog and Delilah, well, she is always eating things she shouldn’t and is usually up to some hilarious and mischievous tricks. So Jodi, congratulations on your award and thank you for mine!
From what I can determine, The Liebster Award is given to blogs with fewer than 200 subscribers by a blogger who feels they deserve more recognition. It sounds like a nice way to let bloggers know you like their blogs as well as to share your favorite blogs with your fellow bloggers. There are some general rules that go along with this award.
- Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
- Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
- Copy and paste the award on your blog.
- Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite bloggers and keep it going!
Last night after telling Husband about getting this award bestowed upon me and telling what goes along with getting the award he said “That sounds like a chain letter.” If I were a man with a big bushy moustache I would have immediately and loudly huffed into it to show my displeasure with his reaction but since I am neither a man nor do I happen to have a moustache, I just loudly huffed. Not nearly as theatrical, I know, but one must work with what they have.
Husband is not a blogger nor is he one who reads blogs so he just doesn’t get it. Sure, The Liebster Award may sound like a chain letter but unlike a real chain letter, if I don’t follow the instructions I will not loose all my money or have three years of bad luck or have all my friends turn into zombies who will come hungrily banging at my door tonight. Instead, if I disregard the award, I will miss an opportunity to bask in the glory of winning (hooray for me!) and most importantly I will not be able to share with my blog friends some blogs that I truly enjoy.
So without further adieu here are my five picks in no particular order. They are a mixture of blogs I have followed for awhile and ones I have recently stumbled upon; all I very much enjoy and hope you will too.
