My good friend Mick (aka thebaffled) nominated me for a Liebster Award.
It’s a pay-it-forward honor in which you recognize your favorite blogs (ideally, those which are not receiving the kind of love and attention you think they deserve).
When you are nominated for a Liebster, you are asked to do the following:
- Thank your nominator in your blog, and link back to his or her blog.
- Display the award itself.
- Pass the award on to five other blogs (preferably those with a small number of readers) and notify them of the award.
Well, I am honored and flattered. But also completely freaked out by the task of selecting just five blogs to nominate. There’s a reason I follow each and every one of you, so it’s nearly impossible to narrow down the list. However, I believe I came up with a system (even though I really have no way to know the number of followers/readers) Here goes:
BEST WRITING goes to foxy-fox. When I read this blog, I am blown away by the words. The writing is exquisite, breathtaking, truthful, shocking, disturbing, and inspirational. If you’re not reading it, you should definitely check it out.
BEST ART goes to withnailrules. Matt displays art from all different periods and genres. I’ve learned a lot by following him.
BEST FASHION to genruk. I can’t tell you how many of these images I’ve “borrowed” to post on Pinterest. I don’t have time to browse through fashion magazines (or, really, to dress in the clothes I see on this blog) but I love what I see and this a great place to catch up on what’s in style.
FUNNIEST IMAGES to thedude——. I don’t know where he finds all this great shit, but it’s usually stuff I haven’t seen before, and it almost always makes me laugh.
MOST REAL goes to divergentone. I met Karyn at a CHSH tweetup a couple of years ago, and we’ve been close ever since…even though we never get to see each other. I relate to her, and I’m grateful that she shares her truth on her blog. She is brave and beautiful.
So, now I feel bad for not pointing out the many other blogs I love. It’s killing me that I don’t have any extra nominations. I follow a LOT of people on Tumblr, so I don’t get to heart as many of you as I want as often as I want. I love you all. Thanks for letting me into your many and various worlds.
