Sush, from First Do No Harm, gave me my first and only blog award, the Liebster Award (sweetheart in German). I've only been blogging about 2 1/2 months, so there is much I still have to learn about writing and blogging in general. I love to read Sush's posts because her blog and comments are always so engaging and warm, something I'd like for my blog to be.
Sush's blog is lush with Southern gentility, rich with family, and always a joy to read. You will laugh, cry, and become satisfied there are still wonderful people in this world after you've read her postings. Visit her blog today- we need to spread more goodness and charm in this world.
The Liebster Award is meant to connect us even more and spotlight new bloggers who have less than 200 followers. (I copied this directly from Sush's blog because it says it so well.)
Every blogging award usually is accompanied by a set of rules. This award has only 5:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks 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 love!
I've modified rule #2 just a bit. I'm going to reveal one blogger a week instead of everyone at once. My initial award is to the person whose blog actually inspired me to get mine going. She was my first follower and was the very first to comment on my blog posting. It is Crystal Pistol at Crystal's a Pistol. Crystal writes amazingly transparent, funny, zany, and moving posts. She's a beautiful person inside and out and is a wife and a mom to four great kids. Head on over to her blog today and check it out.
Enjoy your Friday, my friends!
