Hello Liebster Award

liebster-award

I’ve said it a couple of times before: Nothing beats being nominated for one of the amazing blogging awards out there. Yes, I agree, they sort of mean “work” when you accept them but it’s nice work.

Thank you so very much, Confessions Of A Reborn Girl, for nominating me. If you don’t know her blog yet, please go and check it out. At least read her answers to the questions she was asked for her award acceptance post. They are truly inspiring, just like the rest of her writings. I just had a quick look at the questions she is asking and I can’t wait to answer them!

Blogger Recognition Award

bloggeraward-psitsperi_img_7908

So thankful for having been rewarded once again. The Bee Writes… has nominated me for The Blogger Recognition Award, an award that I happily accept. I know that many of you out there have decided to go award free. Maybe because the awards and the “rules” attached to them are more or less the same over and over again and I understand that it might feel a bit overwhelming covering it on multiple cases. I think though, that it’s a great way to show a bit more from you as a blogger, to reveal just that tiny little bit extra about you. And it’s for sure a nice appreciative nod we all like from time to time.

Let The Sunshine In

Rule Of Thirds3

There are things in this world that put a smile on my face. One of them is the sun, a beautiful sunrise or sunset. And another one is an award nomination here in the blogging world. What a wonderful token of appreciation, especially if it comes from a lovely person like Chelia, whose blog I’m only about to discover. Now if the two come together and create the Sunshine Blogger Award I simply can’t stop smiling. So let’s do this…

Mystery Blogger Award Here We Go Again

It’s always a wonderful thing to be recognized. Although we of course do not get a real award of trophy but being nominated for one of the many wonderful awards out there is always an honor. For me it symbolizes appreciation and I’d like to say thank you to The Bag Lady for nominating me for another Mystery Blogger Award. A special shout out also goes to the creator of this award, Okoto Enigma who describes her award as follows:

The Mystery Blogger Award

Graphic for the Mystery Blogger Award

There are blogger I frequently interact with who always make me excited when I see their Gravatar popping up. Excited because I know there will be either a good exchange waiting for me, a link to an interesting post being shared or just a pat on the back waiting for me. Rob is one of those bloggers. Not only do I find great posts on his blog but his comments often lead to many thoughts being shared. Today he surprised me with a blog award. And it’s an award that I have not yet received.

Real Neat

The beautiful Sasha, who blogs at Sasha’s Writings has nominated me for another Real Neat Blog Award. Thank you so much, my friend, for this pat on my back :-). Please check out her blog, she has a lot of beautiful thoughts to share with us.

I know that many of you decided to go award free with your blogs and maybe wonder why I continue to accept them. The answer is easy: It’s a token of appreciation and most of all it allows me to share a little bit more about myself with you. Most of the award nomination pose questions. Most of the questions are new and give you the chance to share something you might have not thought about sharing before.

Although I sometimes try to get around nominating other bloggers for the award it also provides me with a chance to say thank you to them for supporting my blog. The trick is to pick the bloggers I want to nominate. There are so many out there deserving the award. And sometimes all those options are overwhelming. It’s when I choose to open up the nomination rather than picking a few. It’s what I will do here.

Please leave a comment with the link to a post you especially like. It can be one of your posts or a post of another blogger. Feel free to leave multiple links if you wish. I will read all the posts you share with me and nominate you afterwards. Now let’s get to it…
