Jack Flacco was it, but no longer. He tagged me. Now I'm it. (And a few others that you can find mentioned over there on his blog.)
I'm kind of honored, actually. Being tagged for these things indicates that a certain level of something has been attained or achieved. I'm telling myself that the something in this case is writing a blog that's so stupendous, so gripping, informative, insightful, tantalizing, invigorating, and so genuinely genius that people need medication just to survive the hours they must endure between my postings. Telling myself all this is okay. Really. No one lies to me better than I lie to me. (I do strive to provide an enjoyable read though.)
Jack Flacco gave me the Liebster Award!
|My Very First Blog Award!!!|
I put on my sleuth suit, grabbed my magnifying glass (because face it, the bifocals aren't always enough) and set out in search of this award's history. What follows are items of note or interest that I found along the way.
- Liebster, in German, means favorite, dearest, or beloved.
- This award was created to give love and attention to blogs with smaller (under 200) followings.
- This is an award for a blog considered to be a "best kept secret."
So, Jack, my sincere gratitude. Thank-you.
The rules that must be followed under penalty of being used in my next novel:
- Thank the person that nominated you on your blog and link back to them.
- Nominate up to five other blogs for the award.
- Let them know via a comment on their blog
- Post the award on your blog
Now I strip off the sleuth suit, don the sweat suit and chase down another batch of qualified, under-recognized blogging souls that deserve the love too. I shall catch them. Seize them. Tag them. And they shall be known as it.
- Joseph Ramirez (Open Writer, Closet Nerd) (Take your time, dude. I know how busy you are "discovering" right now.)
- Charlie Holmberg (Myself as Written)
- Richard P Hughes (Writing and Living)
- The Wordsmith (Wordsmith At Play)
- Vanessa Eccles (The Writer's Block)
There were also others I wanted to tag, but they either didn't qualify or I found that they had been tagged previously. (And I can only tag up to five!)
