Liebster Blog Award Nomination

Liebster Blog Award and Sharing the Blog Love...

I want to thank Susan Brown at SBArtist: Painting in the Dark for giving me the Liebster Blog Award.  I am so very honored to be given this award by such a fine artist as Susan, and I am very pleased to continue this tradition.  

What is the Liebster Award?

Well. . .the origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear and this seems to be blog folklore but it goes like this: 

"Some time (in the recent past), somewhere (rumor has it that it might be Germany), someone (I guessing he/she was named Liebster) decided to do something nice for a whole lot of bloggers and started the Liebster Blog Award. It’s an award you receive, but it is also an award that you give."

Liebster is a German word so  translated it from a few sources - it means favorite, sweetheart, beloved, darling.

If you receive a Liebster Blog Award you are asked to choose 3-5 other bloggers and send them one as well. It is an award meant to highlight smaller blogs - less than 200 followers. Let them know that we care and are reading. The idea is that the blogger receiving the award links back to the blogger who awarded him/her, and then chooses 3-5 people to send the award to. There is no obligation to continue this award. It is a lovely way to share the love and also a way of introducing other bloggers to the blogs you enjoy.

Here are the blogs I would like
to pass the love on to:

Candice Windham -  Candice Windham Designs

Joyce Shaver - Blythe Spirit

Ronnie Goff - Veronica: Muse At Play

Roann Mathias - Roann Mathias Calligraphy

Antoinette Garza Tristan - Fulfilling the Heart..Cultivate Life in Joy

These are just a few of my creative friends that I have met along my blogging travels! I encourage everyone to visit these blogs and let these talented artists know how very special they are! 

Happy Blogging!  Barbara
