So it was big surprise when I opened Google reader and found that my long time friend Leigh (of more years than we would ever admit to as it could give away our ages), has passed on this award to me and 4 other bloggers. Leigh is amazingly creative crafty person and lover of all things retro and vintage. You can check out her blog here. Prepare to be impressed!
Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, beloved, or favorite. The idea is to give attention to blogs with less than 200 followers. It's a great way to promote and encourage new friendships within the blogging community. This is how it works:
1. Post the award on your blog.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Reveal your 5 picks for the award and let them know.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people in the blogosphere... other bloggers.
5. Finally, the best rule of all, have fun and spread the love!
So I am passing the award to the following 5 blogs all of which are based in NZ (gotta support us Kiwi's)....
Baking = Love which is another great site with good recipes, fantastic photos and well written posts
Baking Makes Things Better because it really does and this site shares the love. There are also good cafe and restaurant reviews here.
Lovely Wee Days another great NZ blog with good recipes and a regular post called A few of our favourite things.
One Equals Two which is blog started by a friend of a friend recently which looks very promising as a go to with 2 recipes for every post.
Sunday Hotpants which has fantastic recipes and even some crafty stuff. Her recipes always work and look fantastic too.
