My husband may have worked for the Budweiser Clydesdales many years ago and I may live on a thirty-head Clydesdale farm in “No-Where Northern Michigan”, but that doesn’t mean I ever had the pleasure of washing those pain in the rear-end fancy, feathery legs…until just a couple of days ago. Thanks Dad…you now owe me, big time.
Speaking of ‘thanks’, but of the genuine variety, I want to say a huge thank you to my blogging friend Dianna, author of a wonderful little blog called These Days of Mine, for presenting me with my first ever blogging award! It is called the Liebster Blog Award. Since I had never heard of it, I did what any normal girl would do and “Googled” it!
Here is what I found out:
I understand it may have originated in Germany.
The definition of “liebster” is:
n. sweetheart, beloved person, darling
adj. dear, darling; beloved, liked very much; affectionate, loving
adj. favorite, preferred above others; liked or loved above others
It was created to recognize blogs with a following of less than 200 followers. Some sites I found indicated 300 followers.
And now the rules, per Dianna, about accepting the Liebster Blog Award:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks *(some sites I saw said 3) and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Internet – other writers.
5. And best of all – have fun and spread the karma!
I have four blogs I’m very partial to that I’d like to nominate and share with the rest of you, they aren’t in any particular order.
*There is no obligation to accept…seriously…no big deal!
Burnett Photography – Cary is a wedding/family/children’s photographer extraordinaire. Her photography is simply gorgeous. She lives in the Northwest with her husband and two very darling children.
The Game of Life – “Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it”. ~Anne of Green Gables. A sweet little blog direct from the Seattle area where-in the author keeps you entertained with all her outdoor adventures.
An Adventure in Food – “An adventure in food from the kitchen, and out on the town.” Real food. Real recipes. Real helpful site!
Fraser School of Driving – This blog is very new and hits close to home. Click it and you’ll understand why! I just couldn’t resist.
So, again…Thanks Dianna of Scottish decent, this “Clyde” leg is for you!
