My First Blog Award!!!

January 16, 2012


My year sure is off to a good start and I hope, it stays that way. The last couple of weeks have been pretty amazing. And on Friday I received a very pleasant surprise!!! RoryBore at Time Out For Mom bestowed upon me my very first blog award…

RoryBore is one of the people who have embraced me with open arms since I became a “member” of the blogosphere. She let me write my first  guest post on her blog when I took a leap of faith and contacted her about one of the coffee chats she did for the Christmas season. I love visiting her blog… she always manages to make me smile or nod my head in agreement!!!

THANK YOU for once again thinking of me and giving me my first blog award, RoryBore!!!  Here’s to the little fish, in the big pond!!!

The Liebster Blog Award is said to have originated in Germany!!! (Kind of ironic!) The word “Liebster” is a term of endearment that means “beloved person” or favorite. The aim of this award is to bring attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers!

There are some rules that come with this award. Not to worry, you won’t have to bend over backward, just do the following…

  1. Show your thanks to the blogger that gave you this award by linking back to them.
  2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  3. Post the award to your blog. (right-click to safe to your computer, than upload to your blog.)
  4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the internet–other writers.
  5. And best of all… Have fun and spread the Karma!

It is with great pleasure that I pass the Liebster Blog Award to:

NOTE:  As not every blog has GFC, you cannot always tell how many followers someone has.   So, if I make an error, just keep in mind:  it’s the thought that counts.

  1. Paul @ The Ossington Kitchen
  2. Tere @ {Welcome to} Tere’s (never quite “normal”) World
  3. Rebecca @ Freaky Frugalite
  4. Jennifer @ Just Another Day
  5. Tami @ Empty Nest In Illinois

It wasn’t so easy finding 5 blogs that have less than 200 followers. I’m still a newbie myself and have lots more blogs to discover. But these are 5 blogs that I do enjoy reading and make a point of stopping by each and every week!!! So, if you have some extra time… show them some blogging love and check in on them.

Have a great week!!!!! 🙂

    One of the best things about being a blogger is the great people you “meet”, that distance would normally keep you apart.
    Glad you took that leap of faith!
