Today I found out I was nominated for a Liebster Award by fellow blogger Redjim99 who’s great poetry and travel blog can be found here http://notyethere.wordpress.com It was a lovely surprise and the first blog award nomination I’ve ever had. Apparently the Liebster is awarded to spotlight up and coming bloggers who currently have less than 200 – 300 followers. ‘Liebster’ is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

The Rules are:

  1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them. – Done, check out Jim’s Blog
  2. Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. See below.
  3. Post the award on your blog. I will go and rearrange my sidebar in a minute!
  4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogsphere – other bloggers. I could really get used to this 🙂
  5. And, best of all – have fun and spread the karma. Definitely the best part 🙂 🙂

My nominations.

  1. Lorraine at All About Words WA. Lorraine is a faithful commenter and I look forward to hearing from her. I like that she’s writing about writing as well as keeping up with the postaday topics I’ve been following too. Definitely check her page out!
  2. My next nomination is My CFS Life about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the author’s hidden life. It’s really good to read somebody else’s experience and it’s done in a compassionate and considerate way. Really inspiring.
  3. Check out Miss Whiplash aka Patrecia really encouraged me when i first started blogging. Her blog follows topic suggestions and also has some beautiful photographs for the weekly challenge.
  4. My next one I think will have more than 300 followers; but since I’m not sure how to work out the exact number I thought I’d nominate it anyway because I think it’s cool. One Breakfast a Day Serena literally takes a picture of what she has for breakfast everyday and she always has the most amazing things which puts my bowl of Special K to shame!
  5. My final award goes to my lovely friend Grace Quantock She’s a sweetheart and is setting up a social enterprise doing boxes of goodies for people who are ill called Healing Boxes. Grace has a really unique way of looking at the world and is doing great things to improve the lives of others.

Mission accomplished. I hope you enjoy reading some of my favourite blogs. I wish I had more time to read other people’s blogs, I feel like I’m missing out on some amazing writing; but hopefully one day I’ll have a bit more energy to experience all the wonders that are out there in blog land!

    Hi Claire

    Thanks so much for your nomination some weeks back. I am conscious of the fact that I haven’t acted on it yet! I will do so very soon as someone has kindly nominated me for the versatile blogger award as well. I will cheat a little by responding to both at the same time 🙂

    PS I loved your story about the seal today – it was beautiful
