The new year arrived with a very humbling surprise for me; I received a Liebster Award for my blog from Jennifer M. Hartsock – a writer who’s views and commentary I find to be so engaging and thought-provoking, that I felt compelled to subscribe to her blog – thus ensuring that I never miss the opportunity to enter into a rewarding debate.

In line with the guidelines for accepting the award, I am awarding a  Liebster Award to the following five blogs that I love to read:

Fydsy’s Blog - “Jan Gorski-Mescir: writes about football, art, history, politics, atheism, humanity and all those other foibles humankind is so good at getting wrong…” - A writer who stimulates thought and is guaranteed to enlighten with every post.

Elementary Circle - “C-C Lester: Is a female writer from Berkshire, England… (who) writes teenage fantasy fiction, and women’s fiction.” - I look forward to the day when I can walk into my local Waterstones or log on to Amazon and purchase her latest, wonderfully crafted, novel.

Streams of Consciousness - “Coco Rivers loves words, in all forms and all languages. Writing is a passion that has governed her life since she was 14 years old. As with all great passions, it leads and you follow. Mastering wordplay is her lifelong endeavor, a labor of love.” –  Through her blog Coco gives in to the passion of the moment, whatever that is.  I am just glad that she allows me to come along for the ride.

Doodlemum - “37, short, defensive, far too chatty for my own good, mother, artist, noisy, chocolate loving and permanently tired. (I know,  how many bloody adjectives do I need…)” - Angie illustrates and writes one of the most endearing and creative blogs I have the pleasure of subscribing to.  In years to come her work will adorn the shelves of every major book store; the kind of gift every young child will adore.

Single Malt Monkey - “So, my blog is me travelling in cyberspace and hopefully linking up with fellow men and women across the world. It’ll be about creative positive people and their/my work. I grew up in the 60’s and believed in peace and love, man. Aaarghh, sod it – I still do.” - Through Al’s eyes, experiences and creative offerings I am able to travel the world, enjoy the sights and sounds of exotic and rich cultures and gain a greater appreciation for the positive elements of life that we can so often over-look.

Liebster is a German word that means beloved or favorite. This is an award from fellow bloggers given to blogs that have less than 200 followers.

These are requirements that you need to fulfill should you accept this award:

  • Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
  • Give your top 5 picks for the award

    Mark,

    When you have a minute, please add a Archive section of search button as I would like to link to one of your past posts! Thanks!

    Hi Mark,

    What a wonderful surprise! I’m honored to receive this award and pass it on. I’ve always dug your blog because of the seriousness with which you treat your subject matter and your great writing. You were one of the first bloggers I subscribed to as I was drawn in by your post on To Kill a a Mockingbird and you’ve never disappointed me. Not too shabby :).

    Best,

    C.

    • Thank you, and you are welcome!

      Your blog always gives me something to think about and helps me stay a little more informed on events across the pond.

      Looking forward to seeing which blogs everyone else awards – as I am sure my subscription list could do with an additional blog or two (or five, or more).

  4. Thank you, Mark, you are very kind. I shall reciprocate and pass it on. :)
