Well now, Mondays are usually ho hum, but today I got the most wonderful surprise. Ms. Peggy Eddleman picked me for the Liebster award! Mwa, Mwa.
Her blog is seriously the best you guys. I am very new to the blogosphere, am still learning my voice, what topics I should post and how I should make them look. Peggy is a huge inspiration to me. Her posts are so well thought out. I can't wait to read them everyday.
You might be asking, what is the Liebster award? Well, my friends, that is a great question.
It's an award that acknowledges up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It was so sweet what she said about me on her blog and now I get to do the same for five other bloggers!
The rules of the award are:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!
I know you're all dying to meet some fantastic new bloggers, so here we go!
Lacie Nezbeth: One Mom's Journey to Having It All: This beautiful mother of three is wonderful. She posts twice a week about writing and life and writes with such openness and passion. Its a shame we only get to read her mind twice a week. :)
Jennifer Jackson @ Everything It & Tales: I love Jennifer. She is down to earth and her posts make you think. Her little bio explains her so well (and I think it resonates with all of us).
I am a married writer who just happens to be disabled. I have been writing for fifteen years but feel like an amateur; I don't consider it something to be embarrassed about. Life is about learning.
DRC @ WTF's Writing Thrilling Fiction: First, the name is just awesome. And she's even better than that. I especially love her 'pic of the week'. Helps give some inspiration for future characters perhaps...
Rachel McClellan @ Blackbird in my Window: Rachel mixes the hilarity of family life with wonderful insights into a writer's mind. She also is running a contest at her blog. You might want to hurry over there and check it out! (Hopefully she doesn't pass 200 followers before I post this ;))
Katie @ What Katie Said: I thought I would throw someone in here that isn't connected with the literary world. Katie is amazing. Her focus is food, exercise and a healthy balance. She gives everything from food and book recommendations to updates on how her training is going. The recipes are very yummy and lets face it, we could all use a little advice in this department!
