The Liebster Award!

Look at that! It's been nearly a month since I posted. See, this is why I hope that self-publishing doesn't become the norm. I suck at the whole networking/promoting/getting out there thing. In fact, I have a story about my suckage at that, but that's for later.

Anyway . . . I got an award! I've never cared about blogging awards, but I do like Robin (who has a freakishly high amount of freakishly positive energy, can I just say?), so I was pleased to receive it. When Robin gets published (which she totally will), I will say that I knew her when and that she gave me an award!

Now presenting . . .
It's for bloggers who have under 200 followers. It may also have a subtle tint of "Get your tail in gear and blog more often," but that could just be for me.

Now here's the hard part. I have to find five other bloggers who have less than 200 followers and give them the award. The challenge? Blogs with less than 200 followers are kinda hard to spot, given their relative visibility to other blogs and stuff. Lemme see here . . .

Shoot. I just checked my blogroll. They all have more than 200 followers. Now I feel lame and guilty of false consciousness.

So, in the spirit of the award, I commit to begin following five blogs with less than 200 followers. I can't give them the award, mostly because they've all already received it. From Robin, which is how I know about them. But I can add them to my blogroll and shower them with love.


And Then She Was Like Blah Blah Blah
Writing Without Regret
Nancy S Thompson
and . . .
J. Scott Savage! (Robin directed me there.) You knew she'd come through for me!

Oh shoot. Robin linked to five under-200 bloggers, but one of them was me. Okay. I will add four under-200 bloggers and next time I stumble across a fifth, I will add it. But for now I have to go stop my children from eating the poisonous mushrooms in the front yard.

Much love,



  1. Is it any wonder why I love you? ROFL :D

    What you need is a blog schedule and some assigned topics. I'll help you out. You should blog 2x/wk and your next blog should be about *checks her word verification* hooks!

    I'm sure it will be brilliant.

  2. Oh--and did you know that J. Scott Savage has under 200? This is wrong. You should add him to your awards list: http://jscottsavage.blogspot.com/

    I would have, but I ran out of awards.

    Oh, and your blog post after the post on hooks can be about rugnashe. The Word Verification is always right.

  3. His current post includes a story about a toddler beating up an old lady in church and a reference to dirty internet searches. He's TOTALLY on the blogroll now.

  4. Congrats on getting the award, anyway!

  5. Thanks, Jenna! I popped over to your blog and subscribed!
