I'm now twice nominated for the Liebster blog award.
The Liebster award is given to (and from) smaller bloggers, less than 200 followers. It is a way to spread the word and recognize us little guys.
The first time I was nominated was in the midst of my giveaway and in the euphoria of getting so many comments I lost track and never followed up. So first up, Thank you to Kerry of Design du Monde. Kerry is an artist and mom and blogs about her days. Her first language is actually french. Check her out.
The next nomination came from Brandy of Chateau a Gogo. Brandy is not french, but her blog sounds french. She is just starting a new design career and blog. Brandy's blog has 56 followers at the time of this post. She gives a gift to every 20th follower. I'm not good at math, but according to my calculations if four of my readers head over and start to follow her, one of you will be the lucky recipient of something. (not sure what, but it's a gift people).
Thank you both, Kerry and Brandy for the nominations. I think this is a great idea to promote us small potatoes and I'm trying to see this like the compliment you get when you're dieting-- you want people to say you look so small. I'm two years into this blogging thing, and was hoping no one noticed I don't have a big following. I keep telling myself size doesn't matter.
So, as the proud recipient of this Liebster award for being small (yes, I have lost weight, thank you for noticing) . I will pass it on to some other bloggers that I really like (and follow). They are all very different genres and are better than their numbers might imply. (I'm breaking the rules too because a couple of them are just over 200) Try them, you'll like them!
The terms for accepting this award are as follows:
- Choose five up-and-coming blogs to award the Liebster to. These five blogs must have fewer than 200 followers.
- Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
- Post the award on your blog.
- List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.
