L Is For...Liebster Blog Award

My twelfth post for the A-to-Z Blogging Challenge is L Is For... Liebster Blog Award:

Brian at Why Do I Bother? very kindly awarded me the Liebster Blog Award. Thanks Brian.

I then did nothing about it, which probably seemed quite ungrateful. Sorry Brian.

The idea is for blogs with less than 200 followers to get a bit more exposure to the wider blogging community. The rules for accepting the award are:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Nominate up to five others for the award.
3. Let them know via comment on their blog.
4. Post the award on your blog.

As I have been reading entries for the A-to-Z Blogging Challenge, I was bamboozled by the number of great blogs, many of which I foolishly failed to make a note of for the purposes of awarding the Liebster Blog Award.

I have decided to throw this open so I would like you to nominate a blog with less than 200 followers. Make sure it's someone else's blog and not your own, but don't worry I'll look at yours as well.

I'll inform the winners before the end of the month.

The winners so far:

The Geek Twins

Luke Wortley

Lisa Vooght's Flash Fiction

Fairbetty's World

Please feel free to make nominations for the rest of April...

Hi Dave :-) I'd like to nominate LukeWortley for the award. Luke is a college student, an up-and-coming young writer and a great guy. He writes flash fiction as well as posts on various aspects of writing, and is relatively new on the scene. great idea, BTW, extending the award for those who deserve more followers. Well done!

Dave, hopefully you'll be out of qualification for that award soon!

Thank you again.
