LIEBSTER AWARD; Blogs In The Crosshairs.

After receiving my first blogging award from Catcher of Stars – a Kreativ Blogger Award – (something to do with my multiple misspellings I presume), I was privileged to receive several more.

My second, was yet another Kreativ Blogger from Munchow –

I will post it when the Kreativ craze dies down so I don’t render anyone’s collection less diverse.

My third award, was a colorful heart from my most frequent commenter, that seems to have been made especially for me.

Thankx Basu.

Check out her many sites and dazzling art work. She is very prolific!

And hear it is.

The Liebster was a gift from my magical, new-agey friend, Sue Dream Walker.

I passed my first award on to her, via an ambiguous comment that suggested I might not really take these things seriously . . .

Yay! a door stop!

I never heard back from her till she thanked me. By then I assumed I was off the hook. Then I was informed I had won a Liebster.

Now, I had seen this thing around and had wondered what Liebster ment. Apparently It’s German.

The award is a special one intended for the less popular . . . who – with all due respect – deserve more attention then they are getting. (AKA – Hipster bait.)

Years from now they will argue over who it was who saw you first. In the mean time hold on to your Liebsters, and turn up your noses, to mainstrean culture.

I copied this bit from Sue’s award post, in case you would like a full description, this being one of the few awards that actually has some criteria, though that criteria does seem to apply to most of us.

Here are the rules and a few words about the award:

Leibster is German & means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ but it can also mean ‘favourite’ & the idea of the Leibster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers all in the spirit of gathering more connections

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your top picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3. Post the award on your blog.

4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogsphere – other bloggers.

5. And, best of all – have fun and spread the karma.”


Please note. (Don’t feel pressured, this isn’t something you have to do, just a fun activity you may take or leave.)


And hear are my picks for the Liebster . . . – Straight from the dragon’s mouth! SkyddsDrake tells it like it is, letting off steam and the odd profanity. – if love is your sweet tooth and passion your playing field, come take a walk with Lenise Lee. – There is only one post but I am intrigued. Who is this mysterious Kater, and where is all this sarcasm she is supposed to be cooking up? Clearly she is active, as I’ve been followed five days ago. May haps she has gone off to collage? – Sanah bottles up her sentiments and makes her own word cider. Read some today! – Scrap booking for bad asses. – Music dances with art in Schtiel’s world. This intrepid Romanian searches all corners of the web for the most intriguing videos of sound manipulation and hand drawn animation. – Together they shape the strangest of observations on everything from fungal aspirations to emotional constipations. – Catcher of Stars is a poet from sunny Florida who loves nature and tries not to let the red necks get her down. – Jake Thrasher draws and paints and shares his discoveries with you. Let’s see what he is working on today!


Please note that I have other awards to give away and needed to save some people for my Sunshine, Inspirational, and two additional Kreativ Blogger Awards. So don’t think for one minute you will escape a wordpress Rick-rolling 😉

    Thanks so much!! I always wanted to be a hipster when I grow up!! ..Great list…I definitely want to come back and check out some of these fascinating artists :~)

      Your welcome. I always felt there should be an
      award for the unappreaciated – though the problem
      with hipsters is that they leave in huff should you
      become famous – these types of fans like to have
      you all to themselves it seems. 😉

      • iamlenise says:

        Oh wow…I had no idea! I always thought it was about cool clothes, great eyeglasses, and casual, yet chique, attitude :~) ..I stopped trying to be trendy a while ago…but I do love that trendy style so much 🙂

  5. rastelly says:

    It’s actually really ironic that hipsters are trendy –
    As it seems to go against the hipster philosophy
    of not being trendy. I read a philosorapter quote
    on quickmeme that sumed it up. “If being a hipster
    is trendy, and I am not a hipster, does that in fact
    make me a hipster?

  6. Thank you friend =) I’ve been away from here lately. Exams and laundry and life. It’s all just too much. Thanks for the amazing description =)

    • rastelly says:

      I like to leave little pitches in hopes that some
      may be incouraged to actually investigate these
      links – names on a page is not very inticeing. 🙂
