The Liebster Blog Award

liebster award

Oh my goodness!  I’ve been nominated for The Liebster Blog Award by Colline of Colline’s Blog.

I’m relatively new to blogging, I started just before Christmas 2011, so this was a total surprise. I’m loving blogging, I initially set a challenge for myself of posting one photo a day for 365 days…I didn’t even know that Project 365 existed…I’m that green at this.  I’ve found not only that I can’t limit myself to one photo a day but am now writing as well…I wish my English teacher could see this….she’d never believe it!!

What is the Liebster Blog Award exactly? Liebster is a German word meaning dearest. However, in the context of blog writing, it can also mean favourite. The award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in acknowledgement of the good articles and posts they have written. In presenting a fellow blogger with the reward, the nominee is encouraging him/her to continue creating interesting and inspiring posts.

Anyway I digress here are the rules for receiving the Liebster Blog Award :

  1. Thank the fellow blogger who nominated you.
  2. Link back to the person who awarded you.
  3. List five blogs that have affected your writing in a positive manner.
  4. Leave comments on those blogs to let them know of the nominations.
  5. Post the award on your blog.

And, of course, continue writing posts that caused you to receive the reward in the first place.

So first and foremost, thank you Colline for nominating me…I must admit I was amazed when I got a ‘follower’ and now I have 72 which absolutely amazes me…I love Colline’s Blog it’s full of bits and bobs, photos, poems, thoughts, it’s how I would like my blog to be. So again Big Thanks to Colline. Check out her blog her.

Now for the really difficult part, how do I choose just 5, there are so many wonderful blogs out there but here I go….

I have nominated the following blogs for the Liebster Award:
(these are meant to be blogs that have less than  200 followers and on some blogs  it isn’t stated so if you have more than 200 all I can say is…you’re already a success!!)

Please take a look at these, they are well worth it….

1- There’s something really familiar about Kathryn’s blog, so often her post will echo mine, the same thought, photo subject, she’s a dog lover, what more can I say, I love the way she writes and look forward to seeing her posts.

2- The photos on this blog are inspirational….love it, love it, love it! (one day I hope to take photos like these)

3- this is  a young person’s view of London…I love checking it out and planning next time I spend a day in London where I will go.

4-’m sure this guy must have more than 200 followers but hey ho!! Love the photography and he always leaves really encouraging comments.

5- This is the most amazing site which encourages writers…I am no writer but I just love reading the short stories.  I am truly amazed by the talent out there.


Well I hope I’ve done this correctly, may I also add that choosing 5 favorites was near impossible….there are so many more out there that encourage me to keep going!! So if I follow you, you know who you are!!

Thank you Colline!

  1. Thank you for all the compliments 🙂
    You deserve the award! And isn’t it wonderful that we can share what interests us with others? That is also why I love blogging 🙂

  2. Thank you kindly for the award and congratulations to you! Just a small correction — my blog address is, the one listed is the old site. I’ve been catching up after a few days with limited computer time so this was a pleasant surprise to discover 🙂
