Liebster award, the sequel

by Julie Frayn on June 16, 2012 in  Bric-a-brac

I am happy to report that I’ve received another Liebster award!  Thank you, thank you very much…

My new friend and awesome beta reader/critique babe Jen Chatfield was kind enough to bestow this lovely honor on my blog.  She is a fellow writer, fellow blogger, and like me, not a fellow at all.  Check her out at throwing up in an IKEA bag.

The Liebster award is a pay-it-forward award for blogs with fewer than 200 followers.  It gives folks a chance to check out other blogs that rock as much as mine does.  Oh, did I type that out loud?

Oh yes, the rules….

  • Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog (check)
  • Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you (check)
  • Copy and paste the blog award on your blog (check)
  • Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less (about to check, see below)
  • Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog (will do that soon!)

The five blogs I choose to honor with this (I have not verified the 200 or less part) are – in no particular order:

Leanne Shirtliffe at Ironic Mom – She’s tall, blonde and funny, she likes wine, she is Calgarian.  And she isn’t even me. Cool.

Mikalee Byerman at Me 2.0 – She’s funny, she’s funny, she’s funny.  And her blog hit me like a brick.  Just one brick.

Rashad Pharaon at The Traveling Bedouin – Great writer, cool and different travel blog mixed with fiction. And just a nice, nice guy.

Mr. Michael James Monaghan at mj monaghan – He makes me laugh. Does there need to be more?

Okrablossom Jubilee aka Jessie Powell at Jester Queen – anyone who has hippie parents and worries about boobs-in-face when she hangs upside down is okay in my books!

I bet most (maybe all) of these brilliant bloggers have already received this award. I leave it up to them if they want to pass it on, or just nod knowingly and continue with their blogging greatness with nary a Liebster mention.  It’s all good!

I urge you all to check them out.  They rock my cyber-world.

Thank you! No, I have never received a Liebster, and I’m still in the under 200 category! I LOVE blog awards, too. You just totally made my day. Hmm… now, to whom should I pass it along. Hmm…hmmm…hmmmmmm

Glad to make your day!

I’m still laughing at “throwing up in an IKEA bag.” That’s funny.

Congrats on your award, Julie! And thank you so much for the honor of including me in your nominations. You are too generous my friend.

I just know a good blog when I read one, MJ. Yours fits that bill 😀

Leanne Shirtliffe (Ironic Mom) June 17, 2012 at 8:47 pm

I’m honoured. And with MJ too! (Still hard to believe a Californian introduced us).

I think it’s my turn to buy the wine. Chop Chop?


Julie June 17, 2012 at 9:03 pm

I don’t think he’s a Californian any more! Mmmm, wine. I’ll email you :)

Mikalee Byerman June 19, 2012 at 9:22 am

Aw shucks, you’re too kind, Julie! Thank you for including me among such prestigious nominees — yourself included.

I do so LOVE me some award posts, as I always find new blogs to read. Of course, most on your list I already stalk, but there are a couple to add to the list of future obsessions…

Thank you again! :)

As long as you don’t mind me stalking your blog, it’s all good. Hm, ‘stalking your blog’ could be a euphemism for something else entirely. Let your imagination run. I know just where it’ll land :D.
