Liebster Blog Award

Wow! How lucky can a girl get? I've been awarded the Liebster Blog Award from both Cherie Colyer and Lesann Berry Thank you ladies. Readers do go check out their blogs.

 “The basic idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to showcase bloggers with less than 200 followers.” When you get the award, you keep the love going by giving it to 5 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

This was difficult because there are so many great blogs out there, many of which I've recently found because I’m a part of Rachael Harrie’s Platform-Building Campaign. Others I've been following and enjoying for a while.
To share the love and pay it forward, my list of awesome blogs are:

 Writing: A Conversation Without Interruptions  - This is the blog of Ileandra Young, her writing career is only just beginning and she wants you to be part of it. She has gleefully been penning smut, vamp - fiction, fantasy and comedy since 1997.

A. E. Martin - A writer of both Adult and YA Fantasy, she penned her first novel at fourteen, also an artist in many mediums.

My Road to Freedom - Janina is a woman who loves words, a Chicago freelance writer, who sometimes designs jewellery too.

Fabulosity Nouveau - Wendy is from Johannesburg, South Africa, and in her words, "I am a Blogaholic, Bibiophile, Avid Reader, Reveiwer and Lover of all things Quaint and Eclectic."

The Nut Press - Kathryn Eastman resides here. Reviewing books, tasting chocolate, drinking tea and telling us tales about squirrels when she's not scribbling short stories, articles, and poems that is...

All very interesting people, be sure to visit them soon.

 Awardees, this is what you need to do after you've chosen who you're going to give the award to:

  • Show your thanks by linking back to the blogger that gave you the award
  • Notify the folks you pick to receive the award by twitter, email, etc
  • Post the award graphic on your blog
  • Check out the winners, their blogs and websites, and most of all enjoy!
