Thanks to the wonderful Christelle of Haak-en-stekie, I received my first ever blog award today: a Liebster!
Christelle and I are joint administrators for an Afrikaans crochet page on Facebook, called OnsHekel (it means “We Crochet”). I think Christelle (probably) feels the same, but I would consider her a friend, even though we haven’t met in person – that’s the wonderful word of blogging and Facebook for you: shared passions link people together that would otherwise not have met. (Well we haven’t met face to face, but you know what I mean.)
Christelle’s blog (Afrikaans for “hook and stitch”) is written in both Afrikaans and English so don’t let the Afrikaans title put you off, and it’s full of lovely photos and inspiration. Please pay a visit and add it to your blogroll.
As I am now the (very proud) recipient of a Liebster, I have to follow the rules and give the award to five other blogs with less than 200 readers. By the way, Liebster is German for “dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome'”.
The full list of rules are:
Rule #1. You must acknowledge the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
Rule # 2. Give this award to 5 other bloggers. Please let them know through a comment on their blog.
Rule #3. Post this wonderful award on your blog.
Rule #4. Bask in the glory bestowed upon you and appreciate all the amazing bloggers out there.
Rule# 5. Enjoy and spread the good vibes around.
So here goes. My list of five blogs with 200 or less readers that I find “liebster” goes to:
- Maudi Made: http://www.maudiemade.com/
- Skyscrapers and String: http://silkelf.wordpress.com/
- Little Messy La: http://littlemessyla.wordpress.com/
- Not your average crochet: http://notyouraveragecrochet.wordpress.com/
- Unbound: http://bonniejames.wordpress.com/
I don’t want to give summaries of these blogs – I want you to visit each and every one of them to see what they’re all about. I can however tell you that they are all creative, informative, interesting, personal and just a downright pleasure to read. Definitely deserving of a Liebster.
For the rest of the day I will be diligently executing rules no. 4 and 5.
Thanks again Christelle, you’ve made my day 🙂
Wow – huge congratulations! And thank you so much! Do I put the image on my blog? 🙂
It’s a huge pleasure! Yes, you can copy the image from my blog and then put it on your blog 🙂
Wow! Thank you so much for this award. I feel so honoured and I hope to keep churning out content that you love!
I haven’t had a blog for that long so to hear that you love it makes me so happy!!
Many thanks and lots of love,
