My Blog Wins the Liebster Award

I must admit I’d never heard of the Liebster Award before I received it, but now that I know what it is, I’m grateful to author Lisa Tortorello for selecting me.
Liebster, it turns out, is German for "dearest" (as in "Mein liebster, you make amazing strudel"), and the Liebster Award is given by fellow bloggers to blogs with a following of 200 (some say 300) or fewer people. Here’s how it works:
  • When you receive the award, thank the blogger who gave it to you and link back to them.
  • Copy and paste the award on your blog.
  • Choose three to five blogs that deserve a bigger following, give them the Liebster Award, and let them know you’ve done so by leaving a comment on their blog.
There are so many wonderful "small" (200 followers is small?) blogs out there that deserve bigger followings, but here are my five selections:
  • Montana Romance: Up-and-coming Christian romance author Cynthia Bruner’s blog about inspiration, writing, and her Montana home. A fun (and sometimes serious), eclectic blog.
  • Something Deep and Witty: A witty (and deep) blog by Amy Maddox, a writer who will one day take the world by storm. And make cool crafts while doing it.
  • Gwendolyn Gage ~ Serving through Words: Gwen’s blog description says it all: "Thoughts on life, faith, books, novel research, and the story world inside my head."
  • The Eclectic Christian Blogger: Christian romance author Amanda Stephan’s blog, chock full of interviews, giveaways, and reviews.
  • Writin’ 4 Him Café: Author Debbie Dillon blogs about her life as a follower of Christ, writer, wife, mom, church secretary, and coffee lover.
Go forth and Liebster!
