Me! I have been nominated for a Liebster Blog Award by Sarah Nego Writes for my work in finishing the April Platform Building Challenge! I was so shocked and delighted when I saw it there in the comments, but also a little confused as I'd never heard of it before.
Basically, the Liebster is a kind of pass on the love award. It's awarded to small blogs (under 200 followers) for being awesome in some special way. It comes with a few rules, of course. Once you've been nominated, you thank the person who nominated you by linking back to them (which I've done above). Next, you nominate up to 5 blogs with less than 200 followers that you feel are worth celebrating. Naturally, you let them know they're nominated, by leaving a comment on one of their blog posts. And tah-dah! The love has been passed on! It's a great way to get the word out about great undiscovered blogs out there.
So, here goes. These are my nominees for the Liebster Blog Award. (A little throat clearing, followed by a drum roll).
Ruth Long - Bullish Ink - Utterly charming and creative, I love taking a wander on this beautiful site.
Claudine Jaboro - Fiction, Family and Science - A mix of the personal and the scientific, you'll be fascinated and entertained.
Shelly VanBinsbergen - The VanBinsbergens - The captivating stories of a very brave woman who moved her family to Africa for one year. Their journey started in February, it's not too late to catch up and follow along!
Lillie McFerrin - Lillie McFerrin Writes - The genius behind Five Sentence Fiction.
Please go and check out these sites, they're absolutely wonderful!
