Liebster Award and Nominees
Before I posted this, I did a search on the Liebster to find out what it meant. Liebster is a German word and it means, "dearest" or "loved one" from what I could find and it is given to those bloggers who need some encouragement to keep going, keep blogging and keep on smiling. I am thrilled that someone thought about me and included me in the "Keep your chin up, dear!" award!
Thank you Kimberly, for thinking of me:)
The rules are simple enough.
You are to thank the one who nominated your blog. (done)
Link back to their blog. (done)
Nominate 5 others. (done)
Comment on their blog and let then know you nominated them. (doing so now!)
You MAY want to check out this article about the Liebster Award. The rules are different, but I am keeping with what was awarded to me. It's your choice to follow the rules below, or if you choose, go ahead and be brave. This article explains it all...Beware! Those I nominated may hear from me again, with a little sly and sinister chuckle and a brand new award where you will be forced to spill your guts:)
Who do I nominate?
#1. The Teen Writers Group. It's a group of writers over there, but the first writer I "met" on another blog was Ashely. From what I can tell by reading through the blog posts, they are all a great group of writers and they all deserve the award:)
#2. Rachel, over at Rachel Larow. She writes sweet, young adult romance. Her stories are sincere and fun. Perfect for the young adult (or adult!) reader who wants an easy story with lots of romance without graphic illustrations and words.
#3. Janette Dolores I just recently discovered this blog, but what I have read, I have enjoyed. She blogs about 3 times a month, but her posts of rich with advice for moms with children.
#4. Mommy Authors is another joint blog. This one, though, is not teens writing, but a group of moms. There are a variety of authors (Rachel, from above, is one of them) and each one posts different articles. There's plenty of reading to keep you busy!
#5. Candy Apple Books blog is written by a younf lady named Hannah. She's part of the Buccaneer Blogfest, so if you are part of that, you have already met her. She writes book reviews here on theis blog and she does a fabulous job!
Well, that's it for now. Enjoy:) Thanks for reading! Now, I have another blog award to post...
