My blog was tagged with the Liebster Blog award way back in February by my friend, Kay Schulz, whose lovely blog features her many wonderful teddy bears, critters, and other crafty creations, and includes weekly posts by the endearing Wilbur, her long-time teddy bear companion. At the time, I put my response on hold, life being a little out of control. But now I take the opportunity to say that this baby Blogger really appreciates receiving this encouragement award.
The word 'Liebster' is German, and seems to mean something like dearest (with connotations of nicest, lovely, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcoming). As I understand it, the Liebster Blog (LB) award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers by an LB recipient. This blogger then
- chooses another five blogs with less than 200 followers;
- lists the 5 blogs on their own blog and makes contact with each blogger by leaving a message in their comment window, letting the blog owner know they've been tagged;
- does a blog post telling who the award came from, and
- puts a copy of the award on their own blog's sidebar to be copied by the award recipients.
I hope these bloggers know that I think their blogs are great, and will accept this award from me.
Kay, thank you for thinking of me, and for your friendship and constant encouragement.
HAPPY BLOGGING, EVERYONE!
