There is nothing more heartwarming to a writer than to know their work is appreciated by other writers. Once again I have been presented with an award that shows tangible proof that someone not only reads, but enjoys my blog. I am so touched by this and would like to thank my new friend, Dawn, at Alphabet Salad. If you haven't read her blog, you really should. She is a very interesting writer and I love reading her posts.
According to Dawn:
The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note.
As writers, we love to get feedback on what we produce. It really makes my day when anyone leaves a comment on my blog, facebook or sends me an email. I love to hear from you. But when it is in the form of an award it is such a blessing because it shows that something I wrote actually touched someone. That's what writing is all about.
And now it's time to share the love by passing this award on to 5 more bloggers whose posts have touched me in some way. Following are my recipients. If you are one of the bloggers mentioned you can pass it along if you wish but since I love awards without obligations I give you my permission to just accept the award and enjoy without any pressure to do anything further. It's totally up to you. (I hope the originators of this award will forgive me for taking liberties.) So without further ado.
I've done my job so now it's your turn. Be sure to spread the love by checking out the aforementioned blogs and see what they have to offer.
Thanks again to Dawn and to all my faithful readers. I love you all.
Until next time...that's my view.
