More Awards! I Feel So Loved.

Boom, crush. Night, losers. Winning, duh. ~ Charlie Sheen

The Liebster Award

The lovely Lora over at F-Words has bestowed upon me the Liebster Award! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

This award is given by bloggers to other bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. I’m well within that limit! THANK YOU, PEOPLE, FOR NOT LIKING ME MORE!

These awards seemed awfully spammy to me at first (as I said when I first got the Versatile Blogger Award), but since then I’ve given it some thought and decided that it’s really not so very chain-letter-y. After all, you don’t HAVE to obey the rules for the awards, and there are no promises of dire consequences if you don’t pass them on within a certain amount of time.

On the contrary, they really are an awfully nice way for bloggers to recognize each other’s work and to foster a feeling of community. By giving these awards, we recognize our peers and encourage them to keep up their good work.

So thank you, Lora. I am sincerely honored that you thought of me for this award, and I will strive to be worthy of it (by not sucking).

Here are the rules:

  1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog. (THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!)
  2. Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award. (Diddit!)
  3. Copy and paste the award onto your blog. (See above. Isn’t it pretty?)
  4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. (See below.)
  5. Let them know they have been chosen by leaving them a comment.

Now, it’s really hard to tell with most blogs what their follower count is. I’ve had to do some guesswork, based on number of Facebook followers, how long they’ve been blogging, how many comments they tend to have, and a small amount of sorcery.

This is me doing magic. Or mixing a martini. Whichever.

Drumroll, please!

Off Duty Mom

Yes, I know that that’s six and not five. I can count almost twice that high. But since I’m not 100% certain that all of those have fewer than 200 followers (even sorcery can be mistaken sometimes), I decided to throw in an extra one. They’re all excellent blogs, well worth the time to check out.

The Three Red Bins of Blogging Award

This award has been bestowed upon me by the inimitable Dotty Headbanger. It’s a great honor (or honour, if you will) and you can possibly obtain your own here. But only if you’re nice to Dotty and follow her rules. And you better be nice to Dotty, or I will kick your ass. Soundly.

May this award ever serve as a reminder to me that I must only publish high quality rubbish.

  1. Love the pic of you doing your magic (or mixing your martini?). Where can I buy that dress and that little cup thingy? View from your window is quite lovely as well, but that kitty is a tad bit creepy (eyes are bordering on pet cemetery weird). You deserve every award and then some. They do seem kind of “spammy” I guess, but still nice to get, give and be rewarded.

    • Thanks! As far as the cat goes … he was never quite right after I had a little accident trying to magic his fleas away. It worked, though not quite as intended — after all, if there’s no fur, there are no fleas. But the poor cat was a little nervous after that.

  2. Hurray! Also, that’s a nice pic of you. Not everyone can rock that look but you really make it work.

  3. I love that you use sorcery in your blogging activities. Why didn’t I think of that?…

  4. Congratulations! You have fewer than 200 followers? I refuse to believe this. I demand a recount. There must be a wordpress glitch. You’re way too funny to not have millions of people willing to throw themselves under a bus for you.

  5. Oh you’re welcome. Thank you for being so funny…and not sucking.

  6. thanks for the shout out Ms. V..appreciate it!

  7. “Thank you for not liking me more…” Ahahahaha!! Congratulations!

  8. I like you more. I would subscribe 50 more times if I could.

  9. Congratulations and Thank you so very much for including me in your list of 5 (err 6) blogs and in the process sending many visitors my way! It was so busy on my site I had to install a traffic light!

  10. Can it just be a magic martini? One that gives you the ability to feel as drunk as you want, but without slurring your words and allows you to fly home? (no more taxis) Congrats on the award!

    • All my martinis are magic, in that they make me prettier, funnier, and a better dancer. This particular one had an extra, bloggy-clairvoyant kick, accomplished by adding two eyes of newt in place of olives, and a dash of coffee (being the fuel behind all blogs). Worked like a — dare I say it — charm.

      • Who knew such a useless amphibian had so many uses? Shakespeare and witches, that’s who.

  11. Congrats on the award!

    I can’t even f

    • I hate my phone. Anyway, I can’t hardly even fIgure out how much followers I have, let alone someone else. I haven’t tried sorcery yet though…

      • Your page just told me that you have 209 followers. If you go to your stats page, it should tell you.

      • Curly Carly

        Yeah, it’s hard to get a real number though. I think that includes comment followers and duplicates of people who get email notifications and are also Facebook followers. It doesn’t even matter, but I think it’s strange that it’s not more straight forward.
