This is essentially the equivalent of a chain letter. Whatever, in sixth grade chain letters were the shit, so here goes.
Ms. Stephanie at The Conscientious Reader has nominated me for a blogging award called The Liebster. It means “beloved” or “favorite” or “my darling” or something in German (internet translations are disagreeing….anyone speak German?). The idea is to pass the love from one itty-bitty blog to the next, hopefully connecting people with similar content or style.
It’s basically Pay It Forward, in blog form, minus Haley Joel Osment, Helen Hunt, and Kevin Spacy. So, to pay it forward, here are some of my favorite bloggers who have yet to convince the world they should be famous (although it’s only a matter of time):
Kate runs Smart Girls Who Do Stupid Things where she posts awesome stuff like pictures of clouds, recaps of The Bachelorette, and unlive blogs of awards shows.
Emilie writes at I Came to Run, where she talks fitness, body image, eating disorders, etc. She’s the one who did the amazing post about the Special K Challenge.
Emma has a special knack for finding just the most absolutely bat-crazy shit. Seriously, it’s a gift. She compiles it all into a tumblr called Homeless College Grad.
Searah is the founder of the best little sex shop in Chicago, Early to Bed. In her years in the industry, she has discovered the weirdest sex crap ever, logged for your viewing pleasure at Searah’s Museum of Screwy Sex Toys.
So there you you have it, my Liebster nomination list. Ladies, if you’re craving some chain letter love, the Liebster rules follow:
- Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
- Reveal your top picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
- Copy and paste the award on your blog.
- Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
Damn… I need to start reading some dudes…. Anybody have any favorite male bloggers they think I would like?
