The Liebster Blog Award

I receive the Liebster Blog Award this week from Francesca Zappia.

What is this award? I’m glad you asked. “The basic idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to showcase bloggers with less than 200 followers.” When you get the award, you keep the love going by giving it to 5 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers. This was difficult because there are so many great blogs out there, many that I recently found because I’m a part of Rachael Harrie’s Platform-Building Campaign.

To share the love and pay it forward, my list of awesome blogs are:

Angela Brown -
Lyla Lee -
Maria -
Jani -
Megan -

    Thank you so much for this. I shall do my part and pay it forward :-)

  2. It was my pleasure. You have a great blog.

  3. Yay! This is my first blog award. Thank you so much. :)

  4. Eeek! Excited, my first award too. I'll be on it very soon. Thank you, looking forward to reading your posts.

  5. Great idea. I am fairly new to your blog, but it is great. I am also fairly new to blogging. I will check out the blogs you recommended too.

  6. What does "Liebster" mean anyhow?
    Is it a german word?

  7. Liebster is the German for friend or love and from what I've found, this award started in Germany as a way to spotlight great blogs with less than 200 followers.

    I did think it was a great idea and a fun way to recognize some of the blogs I like. I was geeked that mine was selected by Francesca and loved the idea of being about to pass on the award.

  8. Congratulations on your award! I received the liebster a couple of weeks ago. For My TrickesterG, it's my understanding that Liebster means "friend".

  9. Thank you so much, Cherie. Will be writing that post right now. This is my first award as well.

  10. Congrats on the award!

    Also, hello there! I'm Jesi, I'm in your MG/YA group in the Campaign!

  11. Hi Cherie, as appreciation for giving me my first blog award and for your great posts, I've given you two blog awards over here (ironically, I got these from Francesca, too.):
