Shaz over at Our Front Plot liked my blog enough to bestow upon me the Liebster Blog Award, an award given by bloggers to up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers. I’ve never received this award before, in all the 3 years that I’ve been writing The Garden Smallholder. In actual fact, I believe this to be the very first blog award I’ve ever received. I’m not sure if I should laugh or cry.
It’s OK. I’m laughing.
In all honesty, I really am quite chuffed so thank you Shaz for taking the time to read and award me. Now the serious stuff. Acceptance of the award is conditional on the following:
Copy and paste the award on your blog. Check
Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. Check
Choose five other blogs to award with less than 200 followers and leave a comment for them. Hmmm.
Now this is where it gets tricky. Apart from finding it very difficult to choose 5 blogs to award from the long list of great blogs out there, most of my favourites already have this award, plus, I’ve no real way of telling how many followers each blog really has. Also, I’d like to point out, some folk don’t really want to play along with this sort of stuff. Oops. Apologies from the off then. I’m going to take a wild stab in the dark and hope I get the criteria right with each of the following blogs. There aren’t five I’m afraid, but what I have chosen are blogs that I’ve enjoyed for quite some time. One or two haven’t been updated for a while but life tends to get in the way of blogging sometimes.
For those I have chosen, if you don’t wish to take part don’t worry – just enjoy your shiny award just as I will.
