Sharing the liebe
A very lovely lass who (quite rightly) calls herself Alana Awesome has bestowed upon me this very luscious award. In Alana's words:
The word Liesbster means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ and is a special award for blogs that have less than 200 followers but that you think may be deserving of some recognition. It is a way to show some love for the blogs you love to read. When someone gives you the award, you then get a chance to pass the honour onto some of your own favourite blogs.
Thank you, Alana! I am especially honoured by your kind and insightful words. I am lucky to have you as part of my gorgeous community of kindred spirits.
Now the three blogs I would like to honour today have more than 200 readers but I would like to acknowledge them as I feel that they contribute something really unique to the Australian blogging scene. All three are generous and warm hosts of online creative communities, and today I celebrate their energy and courage.
Cathy aka TinnieGirl is a dear friend, a wonderful artist and the host of the delightful Sunday Snippets and Blogtoberfest. Cathy's blog is wise, inspiring and real: just like Cathy.
Bron aka Maxabella is also a dear friend, a loving mama and the host of the gorgeous 52 Weeks of Grateful (which is now hosted by Village Voices). Bron's blog is funny, thought-provoking and ever-so-slightly wicked: just like Bron.
Kirsty aka Kootoyoo is the only one of the three whom I don't know personally, but I sorta feel like I do... which is testimony to the personality and authenticity she brings to her blog. Kirsty is a crafty powerhouse and is the host of the fantastic My Creative Space (which was also recently snaffled by Village Voices).
I highly recommend all three of these lovely gals' blogs, not only because you'll be rewarded with insight and inspiration on a daily basis. You'll also have the chance to connect other kindred spirits in a safe and nurturing space.
