Awards night.

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.

Listen you lot with the freaking double word verification which my computer refuses to word up, consider yourselves notified and awarded.

Fen said...

Ann, I wondered where you had disappeared to :-(

I'm still complaining in my blog, but there's now a light on the horizon. Thanks ever so much for the award xox

Thank you for letting me know why the lovely Ann O'Dyne has become inaccessible. I hope her trolls retire under their bridges soon. And you are right about the difficulty of choosing recipients.

LP is gone? What- no more cafe lizards and one-legged lesbians? So what will Bahnisch ("It's that time again...") do now for an arse to crawl up?

I agree with your awards: O'Dyne and little Fenstar. I don't know the others.

I was wondering why Ann O'Dyne hadn't been around. I must remember to drop in on Fen, she's been leaving me lovely comments.

JahTeh said...

See Annie O, you are loved in our little corner of the blogosphere.

Fen, so glad there's light on the horizon. Gives you an idea of why Mark Latham was looneytunes with frequent bouts of Pancreatitis.

EC, Australian trolls are benign compared to American trolls. I've wanted to hose down the computer after encountering some on feminist blogs so I don't visit anymore.

Robbert, so behind in the news but they still have a facebook page. You became my White Knight in a stoush at LP and I have not forgotten it.

River, awful when the heart is taken out of blogging. And Fen has had the most awful time in hospital, the place should be called Morons Inc.

I went to Settings to dump that revolting double verification thing as soon as I encountered it.
Thank you dear Coppy for all the good times here, and love to Fen, River, El Chi and everyone -
a welcome mat is out at my Worn Out place. X X X
