It's been a while since I've received any awards.
I don't think it was because my writing was any better then than it is now (If you think my stories are stupid now, just take a look through my archive. You'll have a fucking field day.), but I think it had more to do with my newness. Now I'm too old to be considered a "new" blogger, and I'm not famous enough to be considered a "real" blogger. I'm just lost somewhere in the middle, with millions of other bloggers. Which is probably why I haven't gotten any awards lately. I mean, that's the only logical reason. It can't be my writing, that's for sure.
Until two weeks ago when The Number Whisperer from Original Thoughts of an Unoriginal Thinker laid The Liebster Award on me.
If you're not familiar with The Liebster Award, it's specifically for bloggers with less than 200 followers. It's a great idea because the point is to spread the good word about our little-known pearls of wisdom.
And if you're not familiar with The Number Whisperer, she's my sister. And I don't mean like "Yo girl, you my sista!" I mean, literally. She's my sister.
She also happens to be a great writer. And if you follow her blog, you may even catch a story that has yours truly in it.
She also happens to have three boys and a dog. Which is basically like comic gold right at your fingertips. And as is that weren't enough, she takes pictures like this:
Make sure to add her to your blogroll/ feed/ reader. It's worth it.
With that said- thanks, Number Whisperer!
So, here are the instructions for the award:
1. Thank the person who gave me 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.
5. Bonus step: Follow this link and at least consider signing up for the A-Z Challenge. It's a great way to find new and interesting blogs, have people find your blog, and meet new people.
My Liebster-awarded bloggers are!:
Attracted to Shiny Things - FUNNY writings about family life.
Musings of a Mad Woman - Entertaining, funny, AND we're actually friends IRL!
The Sky is Falling... - Everyday life stuff and she loves rescue dogs as much as I do.
Kazoo - Funny everyday life stuff.
Six-Fingered Monkey - Funny everyday life stuff written by a MAN.
As you can tell, I really like the funny blogs. I'm mostly a one-trick pony when it comes to that kind of stuff.
Make sure to check them all out.
