You like me, you really like me!

I am a newbie at all things imagine my surprise when I found out that my fellow blogger at Ideally Speaking nominated me for a Liebster Award!  I need to say, I love following her on twitter...the girl has an awesome collection of t-shirts..I think my favorite Earth Day shirt that she featured from her collection was "I do it outdoors...walking, people!" if I could link to instagram right now I would!

So, what is a Liebster Award?  Well, let me tell you...

Its a little something for us newbies who have less than 200 followers.  I clearly qualify for this nomination!  This little stamp of approval helps give recognition to bloggers for a job well done.  It helps bring exposure and attract more followers to those of us who clearly need a little help.  The best part of this award is that the person who is giving it to you is telling you "YOU ROCK!".  And really, who doesn't want to hear that once in awhile?  Honestly, even if I gain no new followers I really do appreciate the fact that someone is reading my blog and enjoying it enough to let me know.

But its not all giggles and hugs, nope...we have a few guidelines that we follow...

  1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog
  2. You must link back to the presenter on your blog
  3. Copy and paste the blog award on your blog
  4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs you think deserve some recognition.  Remember they have to have 200 followers or less when presented with Liebster!
  5. Make sure you let the bloggers you nominated know they have a Liebester! Leave a comment on their blog. DM on twitter.  Facebook post - however you normally get in contact with them.

So, now its my turn to nominate 5 blogs that I love...alrighty then...

Garage Sales R Us This is a new one I'm following...this lady has some serious designer skills.  You must take a look at what she has recently done to a set of dressers.

Write, Rinse, Repeat Also a new one I found.  Not even sure how, all I know is that she is a smart ass and I love her.  Need a laugh?  Go to her!

A View From Here: Resettling Big Stone County Minnesota Now, thats a mouth full!  This lady here, she is one of my favs.  She's been blogging for a few years now, and she is a personal friend of mine.  She is smart, and funny.  I adore her!  Moved her family from the city to the farm, and is doing some marvelous things.

While Wearing Heels is another fun one.  Who doesn't love a craft tutorial?

Fractured Family Tales is another great blog.  I came across her through some of the bigger writing blogs.  She writes for the #yeah writes contests.  She does a great job.  She posted this little funny...

So I pinned it on my pinterest board, because it made me crack up.  First time I ever got a comment on anything I put on pinterest...  It got over 600 repins, and 171 likes...I'm still getting this thing repinned ...I posted it over two weeks ago!  I also should note...that I really don't have any God-fearing facebook whore friends, so please don't think I'm talking about you.  I just thought it was funny.

I guess that wraps up my 5 blogs...I have a few more that are excellent that I follow, but they already have plenty of followers...but if your interested...I have them on the right column of my blog...check them out too. If you have a chance.
