Jodi Stone from Life With Sampson and Delilah honoured me with the Liebster Award. According to text copied from another website, “This award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers who deserve more recognition.”
Here are the rules:
- Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
- Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
- Give your top 5 picks for the award.
- Inform your top 5 by leaving a comment on their blog.
- Post the award on your blog.
So here goes:
- Thank you Jodi!
- The link is above.
- Here is the award:
Notice there are only three criteria filled.
My question is, how do we know how many subscribers anyone has? (Okay, anyone but me, who moans continually about low readership.)
I suppose loads of comments are a clue, but if someone routinely gets 30-50 comments per post, how many readers does that represent? I don’t know the formula for how many comments represents X number of readers.
I also don’t read that many blogs (she ducks her head in shame). So to whom do I pass this on? In a motion of defeat, I nominate any of my readers who fill the criteria. Take the award and run with it.
It’s the second bit of love that’s come my way this week. Today Kristine of Rescued Insanity listed The Old Man and the Dog at Sea as one of her favourite posts of 2011. I am both chuffed and honoured.
Feeling appreciated is very important. Support from friends matters. I even see it with Our Best Friend. He became a different dog after spending a month with Blackie in the summer of 2009. I’ve become a different blogger thanks to my on-line supporters. I just hope the love continues when controversy flares or I stick my foot in it. It’s bound to happen sooner rather than later. Until then, I’m soakin’ up the love.
