Liebster is a German word that translates to; dearest, beloved or in this case favorite. The idea of the Liebster Award is to give it to an up and coming blog with fewer than 200 followers. – in order to create new connections, and bring attention to their wonderful blogs.
Here are the conditions that go along with accepting the award;
1. Thank the Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who presented you the award.
3. Copy and paste the Liebster Blog Award on your blog.
4. Present the award to 5 bloggers who have a following 200 or less, who you feel deserve it.
5. Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog.
Thank you Elephant's Child and now for the hard part.
It's amazing how many blogs have disappeared from my list and deserted to Farcebook, even the political blog L.P. has shut up shop.
My first award is for Miss Ann O'Dyne. I can't link to her because she's in seclusion due to the League of Trolls making her blog life miserable. From the first time we met and almost wrecked a small eatery (broken glasses, tipped over bottles, fights with Lord Sedgwick) we've been blogmates.
Then another blogger who blogs so infrequently that it's always a joy to see a post. Take a bow Brandyman and hug your best beloved and Bear and Mits.
I really couldn't leave out my IT consultant Antikva an artist of note and noted for her injuries. How can I not love someone who falls over more often than I do.
Our Fen who is currently propping up another hospital bed deserves a bucket of love. Keep writing Fen, reading about another's pain makes me feel so much better. She also has the most beautiful cats.
And my last goes overseas to a very funny boi who treasure acorns, Dr Who and Lego. If I need a laugh and Sedgwick's off his game then this is the blog I run to. The first thing I aim to do when I win Tattslotto is send him every StarWars lego toy in the inventory.
Damned hard work awarding awards and unlike the Logies, Oscars and Brownlow, I'm not even close to being pissed.
