Thanks for the Blog Award!

Today I was awarded the Liebster Blog Award from my friend and fellow Wrimo-raner Tania Walsh.  I enjoy keeping up with her blog which is full of interesting and thought provoking posts.  Some of my favorites are her Mythical Creatures series where she does an encyclopedic break down of legendary creatures from various cultures (pssssst… Tania, has Baba Yaga been done yet?) and Guilty Pleasures Wednesday where we all confess our secret pleasures.  Tania is also who inspired me to join up with NANOWRIMO for the first time.

According to Seven Little Australians & Counting, “The Liebster Blog Award started in Germany and was intended to drive traffic to hidden gems.”  Liebster is German for “friend”.  The rules are simple:

1.Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.

2.Reveal your top blogger friends and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3.Copy and paste the award on your blog.

Thank you Tania for picking me!  I actually met Tania because she won copies of my books ages ago, if I remember correctly.  I visited her blog, loved it and subscribed.  She is a fabulous writer and I’m excited to see what her NANO novel turns out like.  My top blog picks would be:

Journey to (new) Life

D Beautiful Soul

  3. Thanks Angela… you are very sweet, and deserve the award:)

  4. Congratulations Angela. I’ve always loved this one.

  5. Aww, thanks for the nomination.

    I promise to not comment negatively on the slightly wrong German grammar regarding “Liebster” *cough*
    I’ll first do a research whether this really started in Germany ;-P

    • Hahahaha! I knew my German Expert would come along and check for accuracy (especially since I nominated her!) That’s why I always link to what other people said… that was if it’s completely wrong I can blame them ;p

      Seriously tho, I couldn’t find anything on where this award originated (I didn’t look more than 5 minutes) and am really curious. If you find out let me know please.
