kelsey over at rising/shining honored me (a bit ago, embarrassingly) by presenting a denver home companion with the liebster award. she notes: the idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to upcoming bloggers (with fewer than 200 followers) in order to create new connections and bring attention to wonderful growing blogs.

so i’d love to pay it forward. i have no idea how many followers each of these blogs has but they’re near and dear to me (meaning: i get excited every time i see a new post in my google reader) and they are written by women who seem to be really great who also happen to write blogs that are wonderful and truthful and creative.

additionally, i love new blogs. and i love smaller blogs. these bloggers seem to write with more honesty and candor. this is what i need in my life!

kelsey has some instructions if you were one of the above bloggers awarded a Liebster Award by me and want to keep it going:

+ choose up to 5 up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award
+ write your own Liebster award post and tell the world about the blogs you love
+ in your Liebster post, link back to the blogger who awarded you to – it’s like a blog chain letter, but better!

    Oh! hahah! I was re-reading this and I realized you’re not suggesting that all your readers actually do this. But such a great idea anyway. Congrats on the Liebster! 🙂
