Many, many thanks to Tat at Mum in Search for giving me the Liebster Blog Award! Â What do you mean you haven’t heard of it before? Â Well, let me tell you a little bit about it.
Liebster is German for Darling, Sweetheart, etc. Â Wait a minute! – THAT’S WHAT POPPET MEANS TOO!!!!!! Â What’s truly awesome about this award, is that it is given by my peer. Â Someone in the blogging community who thinks I have something to offer. Â And coming from Tat it means a lot! Â Take a moment and check out Mum in Search too!
All I have to do now is pay it forward. Â The following is a list of 5 blogs that inspire me, that brighten my day, or just make me pause and think. Â Congratulations! Â You’ve won the Liebster Award!
#1: Â Â Good Grief GuruÂ - An intimate portrait of grief and single motherhood at a young age.
“Shawna is an engaging speaker with a heart wrenching story to tell. Her story is a raw account of the events that led up to the death of her husband, leaving her a widow and a single parent, at the young age of 32.
Shawna speaks candidly about her experience living with a spouse who had mental illness, addiction, a big heart, and deep-rooted pain. A spouse whose life came to a sudden end the day before their daughterâ€™s second birthday.”
#2: Â Â I’ve Become My Parents Â - Downright crazy funny blog!
“My parents are fine folks, I just donâ€™t want to be them. The bottom line is, though, that no matter how hard we try, we will become our parents. It happened to me and Iâ€™m sorry to say, son, that Itâ€™ll happen to you. So have a good look at me now. Learn what you can. Who knows, maybe you can alter that destiny just a bit. If this blog helps then Iâ€™ve done all I can. The rest is up to you.”
#3: Â A Life Well Lived Concludes with a Smile: Â I love the HUGE smile on his profile pic! Â And the blog’s awesome too!
“It is life’s small moments that create lasting memories. As the official blog of “Crowdsourcing A Good Life”, the goal of this blog is to enable a life-milieu conducive to creating and commemorating these small moments.”
#4: Â The Butterfly Mom – This is the ULTIMATE multi-tasking Momma! Â Multiple blogs! Â All great!
“What about The Butterfly Mom blog? I created this blog as the catch all for everything else. Crafting, parenting, reviews, home management, cooking and baking and everything else in between.
Where did I come up with The Butterfly Mom? Well I didnâ€™t. My eldest did. We were out at a kidâ€™s party and when another parent asked her who her Mommy was she answered, â€œthe butterfly mommyâ€ because of all the butterfly tattoos I have. Yes, I have tattoos. Several.”
#5: Â Food Good, Laundry Bad – Evin is living the life I once did (city girl to country gal!)
“We recently moved from Austin, TX (a big, liberal city!) to a tiny town north of Austin with 1400 people. We live out in the country, more or less, and are surrounded by trees, cows, and bugs. Mostly bugs.
I love to cook and eat and am constantly learning what I can about food and different cuisines. I never met an ethnic cuisine I didn’t like, the spicier the better. Because we live so far out and I don’t drive, I’m often forced to get creative – I can’t zip down to the corner store for Thai basil or fresh mozzarella.”
Enjoy your Liebster! Â And don’t forget to pay it forward to your favourite less than 300 follower blogs!
