The “Liebster Award”

Since I relocated by little bloggy home from Typepad to WordPress, it has taken a while to get reconnected with some of my previous followers and meet a few new friends out here in the blogosphere. After all, I “lived” over at Typepad for almost four years, so this has been a bit of an undertaking to move everything from over THERE to over HERE. But I’m making progress and I’m finding that WordPress is quite user-friendly, so in time I will get back up to speed!

One of the things that is always fun for us bloggers is to give and receive Blogger Awards. This week I received the “Liebster Award” from Judy at Judy H-J’s Thoughts. She tells me that “Liebster” means “favorite, ” so I am honored to know that I am one of her favorites ;o) Now the really fun part of all this Blogger Award project is that I get to pass on the “Liebster Award” to five of MY favorite blogs who have fewer than 200 followers. I wonder . . . . can I give the award to more than five of my favorites? I’ll ask and see what she says!

Blogging is kind of like keeping house. Well, that’s just my observation and the way I look at it. It probably isn’t like that for all bloggers (some of us probably blog to avoid doing housework!), but since I actually do enjoy fussing around my house and decorating the rooms, my blog tends to take on a similar feel to the atmosphere in my home. I like to find pretty buttons and banners to post on my sidebars, and I really like to include other bloggers and blog hops in all the empty corners of my blog. I’ve actually been considering creating my own blog award . . . . maybe a “Beautiful Blog” award, or a “Funniest Mom” blog, or “Most Creative” blog award . . . . then I can give awards to anyone I want, all the time, every week! I think I’ll do that!

Here’s the “Liebster Award” that I received from Judy:

And here are  five (or more!) of my favorite blogs who will receive the “Liebster Award” from me:

* Miss Proverbs 31 Ministry

* This Thing Called Life

* Chronicles of Christian Moms

* Lady in a Shoe

* The Eclectic Christian Bloggers

* Tea and Friendship

* Ponderings by Kris

Can’t wait to create a few new blog awards for some of my other favorite bloggers! And don’t forget, when you receive an award, the most fun of all is getting to pass it on to some of your friends out here in the blogosphere! Have a great week, Nina

      Thanks Elisa! It is so much fun getting to know other bloggers and making new friends . . . . especially when we can connect with others who share our love of writing! Thanks for stopping by ;o) Nina

    Hi Nina,
    I was really happy to pass on this award to you. I think you have come up with a great idea to start some awards. It certainly gives encouragement to Bloggers and show how much we appreciate them. Take care and have a good week.

    What a sweet surprise! Thank you so much! 🙂 I feel bad because I’ve become so busy in the last several months, I have not been very good at keeping up with people in blogland. (Maybe I shouldn’t have said that, you might want to take the award back from me:)
    I’ve really enjoyed the Ruby for Women Magazine and have told many about it.
    Thank you again for the sweet surprise and I pray you and have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!
