liebster blog award

February 7, 2012


I am chuffed and humbled in equal measures. I have been awarded the ‘Liebster Blog’ award. Holly from the blog hvhinteriors kindly included me in this list of her five chosen blogs. 

I was completely unaware of this award so here is the ‘science’ bit: the award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers. The chosen blog awarded, that’s me (hurray), is to thank the award giver (done) and in turn choose five more blogs (about to announce). Of course, let your chosen blogs know that you’ve bestowed them this prestige award (catch a plane if you must), sit back, bath in your glory and hope that they will pay forward and continue spreading the love… repeating this procedure.  The award is to appreciate and support smaller blogs. Liebster, you might wonder, means favourite or beloved in german so it is fitting to now announce my ‘liebste blog list’.

I have chosen these for their outstanding blogs, full of interesting subjects, great photography and generally very high quality content. I, hereby, also would like to thank them for their ongoing camaraderie and support, for allowing me to express my passions and various foibles. I didn’t want this blog to be about finding homes and estate agents or just about interiors. I want to be able to write about what rocks my world and boy are there many subjects that do. So thank you, dear pia posse, for listening, reading, commenting and holding me accountable to keep providing you and all my readers with quality (I hope) posts. My blog is just over a month old and you are all far more seasoned bloggers so thank you for taking me in and showing me the way. I am humbled and greatfull to you all. Just in case you were wondering, no, you can’t nominate each other:) ha!

Without further ado, here they are:

1. insideology

2. inspirationcooperative

3. ilikewantneed

4. still+life

5. carousel

    Your blog is only a month old? Are you kidding me? I felt like you were a MUCH more seasoned blogger than little old me! Regardless, the nomination is amazing and incredible and flattering and beyond sweet and and and and….so many more adjectives that mean I’m totally stunned and grateful! I only started blogging a year ago (this month!) and never thought I’d end up with this wonderful and wonderfully supportive group of women from all over the world. You guys are all creative, beautiful bloggers who inspire me everyday. Thank you SO MUCH, Tina!

    Well, thank you ever so much for thinking of me, and thank you for your kind words, T! I feel the same way…I’m so grateful for all the support we give each other. My only problem: You already nominated all the people I would have thought to nominate. 😉 Darn! (Kidding, I can think of some others.)
    I really can’t believe you’ve only been blogging since January. Well, keep at it, you’re doing great.
    Thanks again! Cheers!

    Well done Tina – what a lovely compliment and you deserve it. I’m in awe of how full and original all your posts are – it’s easy to forget just how new to blogging you are!

    The award is a great idea too – sharing favourite bloggers with the world. You’ve turned me on to a few new ones 🙂

    Thank you so much, Tina, for your sweet gesture!

    I was feeling down and a little sorry for myself so it was the perfect pick-me-up!!! 😀

    In all the excitement, I’d forgotten you’d won a Liebster too!! :/

    Here I am! Here I am! Work deadlines have had my nose to the grindstone and likely will for the rest of the week, but I thought I heard a hub-bub in the distance! Thank you SO, SO much my dear. I am humbled and touched by this community that means so much to me.

    Your blog is a month old? I’m totally impressed and so grateful to be a part of this esteemed group. And congratulations to you as well, my dear. xo

    Tina – You deserve it! I’m sorry I only noticed this now… where have I been hiding? Congratulations on getting your blog noticed and loved in such a short space of time! XXX

    Thank you so much Tina for this, I’m totally flattered and chuffed. And of course I’m in very good company.
    I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for a month! And Chi for only 3. I’ve been almost a year and don’t write anything that has any of the quality of yours!
