Well, well, well, this is about as tardy as it’s possible to get.
AGES ago, back in MAY (yes, that’s right, two whole months), the very lovely Holly Kench nominated me for a Liebster Blog award. And do you know what? While I thanked her for the nomination, I totally forgot to do my bit and pass on the award to those bloggers I thought worthy. Until now, that is.
To quote Holly’s explanation, the Liebster Blog Awards are basically chain letters of love for baby-bloggers. It’s all about sharing links and love to your favourite sites (at least those with under 200 followers). And, while I would love to have more than 200 followers, if having less than that number means I can share some blog love, then I’m all for it.
It seems the requirements for accepting the award are linking back to the person who nominated you (done!), and then nominate five other blogs that you think deserve some attention. I have to admit that a large proportion of blogs out there don’t give follower stats, so I had to do a bit of guesswork. (I know that WordPress stats aren’t necessarily correct anyway. Last week, it showed that overnight I had gone from 90-odd followers to over 850. My own stats show that the 90-odd is still correct, so forgive me if I sometimes take readership stats with a grain of salt.) Anyway, my apologies if you’re listed here and do have more than 200 followers; I hope you’re not offended by my presumption. So, in no particular order, here goes.
1. Pauline Conolly‘s blog
2. Alison Wong’s blog, Think Write, not Wong
3. Sarah L Fox’s blog, The Write Fox
4. Mike Lambson’s blog, The Writer’s Zone
5. Elizabeth Lawrence‘s blog (warning: link contains adult content)
I hope (a) I got the follower numbers right, and (b) you go and check out what these lovely people have to say. Also I thoroughly recommend you subscribe to Holly’s blog, linked to right at the top.
Thanks again to Holly for the nomination … and share the blog love!
