My cyber friend/encourager/supporter, 4amwriter.com, kindly nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award! Thanks, 4amwriter ๐Ÿ™‚

This fun award was created to recognise blogs with fewer than 200 followers/subscribers. (One day, I hope to be out of the running!)

The Rules are:

Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them. (check!)

Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. (check – see below)

Post the award on your blog. (done)

Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogsphere โ€“ other bloggers. (oh yeah, I’m feelin’ it)

And, best of all โ€“ have fun and spread the blogging love. (ongoing)

My top 5 picks – I have no idea about how many followers or subscribers these blogs have, but they are worthy, and as I have never been too fond of rules, I’m quite happy to flaunt that particular one ๐Ÿ™‚

Karen S Elliot – the word shark. I have never met a more word savvy, information filled, freakishly smart about all things word-y person than this woman. That she is also kind, generous and full of useful tips and advice for a novice blogger like me is a bonus. Thanks for your support Karen!

Nancy Lauzon – the chick dick mysteries.ย I love Nancy’s blog because while it is predominately about writing, she also steps off that path to explore other wonderful things. And I love the Chick Dick Mysteries!

mapelba – the fairy tale asylum.ย Besides the fact that I just love the title of this blog, I am a fan of mapelba and have been happily hopping about with her from place to place. This is a fun blog (with wonderful writing) where you just never know what you might find.

Christi Craig. Christi’s previous page was called Writing Under Pressure which really attracted me to her site because I can identify with that! Christi’s blog is a great place to be reminded why we write, celebrate the highs and empathise with the struggles, as well as an occasional excellent author interview.

Tonia Marie Houston – passionfind.ย I think Tonia and I both started our blogs around the same sort of time, so I feel a sense of affiliation and connectedness based on that, together with the fact that we are both unpublished wannabe authors who are trying to juggle kids, life and our crazy idea of one day seeing our name on the spine of book. Besides that, Tonia’s blog is interesting, often heartfelt and always savvy. From one aspiring author to another – go Tonia!

I hope you have fun checking out these wonderful blogs. And, go ahead, make their day by leaving a comment about what you enjoyed ๐Ÿ™‚
