Liebster Award

12 Oct

I’m proud and happy that it is the second time my blog has been awarded! This time I received a Liebster Award from the hands of my fellow blogger Ariana at Pearl’s Twirl. I can’t say what I love more about her blog: “her American world” or “the hint of her Russian personality”. I just love Ariana’s blog: the topics she picks for her blog posts, the slightly ironical way she uses to write about everything, her love for life and enthusiasm about anything she does. Recently I had a pleasure to interview Ariana for my Russian site about her relationship with the English language. 

Now to the award. The Liebster is said to have originated in Germany. It means “beloved.” And it’s designed to bring attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers.

Here are the rules:

  • Thank the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
  • Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  • Post the award on your blog.
  • Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Internet

According to the rules, I am to pass the Liebster Award along to five other bloggers. Although there are more than five blogs I love, I have to stay within the limits and I present the Liebster Award to these five bloggers:

  1. Emily Cannell at Hey from Japan – Notes on Moving. Although it is evident that Emily has more than 200 followers, I just can’t bypass her blog for I love it dearly and enjoy her posts about Japan.
  2. Kitchenmunge. I enjoy language posts on this blog.
  3. Lena at Coffee Cat – a blog by a Russian girl living and working in America.
  4. Michi at I Heart Mondegreens. I like the welcoming atmosphere created by a sunny girl called Michi.
  5. Ashley Pichea at Teaching Jenny – a blog about homeschooling an academically advanced preschooler with lots of useful materials and links.

I link to you just to say I love your blogs and enjoy reading them whenever I have time to. Thank you for your  posts and keep on going. 🙂

      Thank you, Svetlana! You will sure find something interesting among the blogs I listed. Unfortunately, I have no time to read all the blogs I love as often as I’d like to.

    Thank you so much, Olga. So nice of you! I just feel bad that I’ve abandoned the world of blogging in the last month or so. But I will be back as soon as I can.

    Thanks, Olga.
    I’m now trying to decide on five favorite little-known blogs. It’s some work that you’ve saddled me with, but not unpleasant work.

    People who want to see only the language rants on my blog (the parts that Olga likes) should just click “language” in the tag cloud in the right column. I do considerable ranting about political organizing, aimed at my local associates. It probably has limited appeal to any broader readership.
