Liebster Award

Last week UponAtlast nominated me for The Liebster Award. I can do nothing but say thank you with much humbleness. It is really lovely to be recognized this way, and more so to share it with other bloggers. As the blogger Lynne’s Book Notes writes: “Peer-to-peer awards are so important in this world: They let us support each other, reach out to each other and remind us that when we feel like our posts are disappearing into a vacuum of apathy, that someone out there is reading!”

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. “Liebster” is German and it means “Dearest” or “Beloved.” But, at the same time it can also mean “Favorite.”

The rules for The Liebster Award:
1) Thank the fellow blogger who awarded it to you
2) Link back to said blogger
3) Post the award onto your blog
4) Pick 5 other blogs you want to recognise
5) Let them know they’ve been chosen!

And now to the fun part, my five nominees for the The Liebster Award:
GMB Akash A Photojournalist’s Blog
Creative Aroused – Arouse Your Inner Creativity
Visual Journey
This Man’s Journey
JavaGirl’s Life

Let me finally add that I was twice in the last week or so nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award thanks to The Daily Graff and UponAtlas – again. The fun – and import part – is to showcase and nominate other bloggers, but I need a little more time to pick my 15 new nominees. I’ll be back.

  7. Otto,
    Congratulations on yet another well deserved peer-to-peer award! The beauty of these awards is that I get to see the sites that a photographer I follow follows. It’s like a guided tour of “the best of the best” in the particular area of interest of the awardee! –John
