I have been truly honoured to receive the Liebster Blog Award from Julie @ http://juliecatherinevigna.wordpress.com/ Thank you so much, Julie. It’s always wonderful to be appreciated by other bloggers and writers out there in the sometimes scary internet world.
The Liebster Blog Award originated in Germany (Liebster means “favourite” or “dearest” in German) In accepting this award, the recipient agrees to:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them. (Happily done)
2. Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know. (Pleasure & done)
3. Post the award on your blog. (done)
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people in the Blogshere. (easy bit, done)
5. And, lastly – have fun and spread the karma! (done: I love good karma) 🙂
OK, top 5 picks:
Peter Wilkin @peterwilkin1 has been such a good friend and so supportive of me and my writing. I cannot thank him enough for all the support he has given me. His poetry and writing inspires me to aim for a similar high level of quality and integrity and I am proud to call him my friend. You can read some of his beautiful and sensitive writing here @ http://peterwilkin1.blogspot.com/
Joe Hesch @JAHesch is someone who I adore, both as a person and as a writer. I came across him through the wonderful poetry on his site @ http://athingforwords-jahesch.blogspot.com/ He writes in a way that touches my heart and soul and our friendship has since deepened into something very special. He is a man I am very proud and pleased to know.
Martin Stein @_Daniel521 (aka Starwatcher) is a lovely, gentle guy who loves to read and write poetry. Another wonderful friend who has been visiting my site since I started blogging and who has offered me much friendship and support. You can read his own poetry here @ Cemetary of Fogotten Poems
Quirina @denfemte is a lovely person and friend, as well as a wonderful poet and writer. She is someone I very much admire and I feel very lucky to count her as one of my friends. I’d like to thank her here personally, for all the support she has shown me since I started blogging. Her own beautiful writing is here @ http://themindssky.wordpress.com/
I wanted to give this award and my thanks to Brian Miller @bmiller007 and @dVersePoets for all the support and time he & the poetry community have shown towards me. The encouragement and poetry love they provide has helped me tremendously to become the improved poet that I am today. My grateful thanks for all you do for the poets, writers and artists.
OK, that’s it. There are many other people I could have chosen to give this award to, but sadly I could only pick five people/blogs. Please know that I appreciate each and every person who visits and comments on my site. I love all of you! 🙂
