And I love the posting because I thoroughly enjoy getting comments on my posts, both on Facebook and the actual blog.....it confirms that other people are as crazy (er.....normal) as me and I learn from their comments as much as they say they learn from a post or two of mine. And I love to see who is following my blog--those little thumbnail pictures in my side-bar are like little blog x's and o's--thank you if you've blown me a little cyber kiss (and no one can ever have too many kisses if you know what I mean)!
But 30 days in a row! Do any of us really do anything for 30 days in a row without stopping? It's that magical habit building number right? It's why it's kind of tough. And when you're in the middle of trying to build a habit it's really amazing when someone comes up beside you and gives you just the kick in the pants, love tap, encouraging cheer, or "go get 'em tiger" that you need.
That happened for me yesterday.
I got an e-mail from Tricia over at Raising Humans telling me that she was awarding me the Liebster Blog Award. I've never met Tricia in real life--just here in cyber land and it was a fantastic little energy boost to get her e-mail!
The Liebster Blog award has been around for a while and it's a way for bloggers to recognize other bloggers that they believe are up and coming, who have less than 200 followers, and who are doing great things in their little corner of the Internet.
When you get the Liebster award you are challenged to pay the blog love forward to give other people in your same boat the support and encouragement that they all need to keep on posting and to keep writing honest, true, transparent, helpful, funny, and interesting material. Liebster is a German word meaning "beloved" or "favorite"; below is a list of my top 5 blog picks, my favorites, that I'm now awarding the Liebster Blog award to.
- Daily Polka-Dots
- Circle of Quiet
- 57 Varieties: Life as a Heinz
- Fancy Free Sunshine
- Restoration Living
All of these blog are vastly different, but they all produce high quality material for the blogging niche that they want to fill. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
When you get the Liebster blog award you need to:
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
3. Reveal your top five picks and let them know.
4. Hope that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
Here's to a great Monday, some fantastic bloggers, and the Liebster award!
