The Liebster Award

I learned a new word today. It's "liebster." I was told by both I Luv 2 Save and Cute Coconut that they were passing on to me the "Liebster Blog Award"!

Being the dork that I am, having never heard of that term before, I did a little googling... (yes, I do use google as a verb) And I discovered that the word liebster is actually German for friend, love, or dearest. How sweet! The goal of this award is to spotlight up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers.

So let's spread the love! Here are the "official" rules for this award:

  1. Copy and paste the award on your blog

  2. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you

  3. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog

  4. Hope that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers

Thank you again Ola and Rina!!!

Here are five up-and-coming small blogs that I think you should all check out:

  1. Romance on a Dime - "As a newlywed, my 3 newest passions are healthy cooking, couponing (saving money), and making my house prettier/more organized! I love to share as I learn and discover more ways to save money and make my home beautifully organized."

  2. My WAHM Plan - "Putting the focus on Home on my daily adventures in Wahmdom."

  3. View Along the Way - "This tiny corner of the web is where I chronicle our attempts to fix up our beaten-down home on a teensy little budget. We're not there yet, but here's a peek at the view along the way..."

  4. Family Brings Joy - "There are very small & simple things we can do, no matter your family’s shape or size, to build unity & joy... I like to write about those particular interests that make me happy. These include (but are not limited to) Crafts, Music, Photography, Reading, Running and Blogs."

  5. Cheap Wine and Cookies - Not your "typical" mom blog... "Marine. Lawyer. Mommy. Wife. I have an opinion on everything."

Go visit them! Now! Pretty please! Spread the love. :)


  1. What a fun idea! Guess taking three years of German came in handy for me today! ;) I'm definitely in the under 200 follower category. But, honestly, my followers are loyal and awesome, no matter how small in number they are. I had a friend who I see every week at my daughter's dance studio come up to me and say, "I just love your blog and have been meaning to tell you this." This is music to a bloggers ears. Another is what you have done for me today. Thanks a million! What a wonderful thing to wake up to this morning! Carrie, your site is looking wonderful and I love the title mucho! Have a super great Tuesday! Hugs, Shan

  2. Sweet! My 1st award ~ thanks Carrie for starting my Tuesday on such a positive note. I will visit the blogs you've awarded and help you spread some love!

  3. I'm glad I could give you a good start to your morning. :) Thanks for your kind words about my blog too!

  4. You're welcome! I'm glad I could help give you a good start to the day :)
