The Liebster Award & Celebrating 200 Followers

I received the Liebster award.     I am so excited.
Rosalyn Eves over at Thinking Through Our Fingers presented me with this award. Thank you for selecting me. 


I am a huge fan of blog awards and blogfest and all other ideas that are aimed toward helping other bloggers. I just so happened to pick a great time to begin blogging. I began weeks before Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writers Support Group which was followed closely by Alex and Mathew MacNish's "Pay it forward blogfest". Those of you who have participated in one or both of these will appreciate how friendly they were to new or undiscovered bloggers. It was a fabulous way to increase your number of readers and allow bloggers to meet new and interesting bloggers.

.

The Liebster award is another award designed to bring traffic to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  I received this award last week while I  still had well under 200 followers.

Now, thanks to Shelley Sly   I have reached my 200th follower milestone.  Please take a few minutes to check out Shelley's blog.

        

As the lucky recipient of the Liebster award, it is now my turn to name five blogs with under 200 followers that I recommend you visit.  This was hard because I have discovered quite a few new blogs lately that I absolutely love, many of which have under 200 bloggers.  Unfortunately I am only supposed to name five. From what I understand this is not one of the awards were I am to name random things about myself. I haven't done that one yet, but I see it floating around.  If I was to do anything more than pass this on to five more lucky recipients then I do apologize .

So without further ado. I give you:

1.  Shell Flower

2.  Len Lambert

3.  Emily Moir

4.  Jessica Salyer

5.  Jennifer Young

I encourage, no I challenge all of you to please visit all five of these blogs if you are not already reading them. If they are not your cup of tea, you are no worse off.  If however you discover a new blog that you enjoy, then you are one step closer to a new friend and in gaining that friend you did your part in helping fellow bloggers.

So what are you waiting for? Go visiting.
