    1. Authorship blog 2013

    The award goes to… drum roll please… Cristian Mihai.  Cristian has consistently helped authors through his excellent blog.  He is now reaching out to others in the realm of the Arts, through irevuo, an excellent online magazine.  Many congratulations, Cristian, and thank you for your tireless efforts.

    2. Book review blog 2013

    This award was extremely difficult to assign, with so many excellent review blogs out there.  In the end, the award has gone to Rabid Readers ReviewsWe were particularly impressed by the nice clean presentation of this blog.  Congratulations to Tammy Dewhirst, who runs the blog.

    3. Publishing blog 2013

    Another tough one.  However, one blog stood out, in the end: Self-Publish 101This blog provides an enormous amount of help and advice for all authors looking to self-publish.  Congratulations to the team behind this blog,

    4. Part-work blog 2013

    One blog sprang to the fore for this award: Unbound Boxes Limping GodsWhile the presentation of each part of the story leaves something to be desired (white on black in a small font is rather eye-straining!), nobody demonstrates more determination to continue to tell a tale as a part-work.  Congratulations to the author, Cheryl Moore.

    5. Poetry blog 2013

    The winner of the poetry blog isn’t a purely poetry blog.  It has been chosen, however, for the poetry it presents: TIPPR BlogCongratulations go to Tamara I, the blog owner.

    6. Photoblog 2013

    One blog rose above the competition with ease: sethsnap.  The breadth of the subjects and the beauty of the photographs is inspiring.  Congratulations to Seth Snap.

    This has been a challenging process, and, as with all awards, we don’t expect everybody to agree with the choices made.  I would still ask you all to applaud the winners.  And remember – 2014 is another year!

    • Oh wow! Thank you hugely! I am bowled over and deeply honoured 🙂 I was wondering what to post today – and now I’ve been answered! And I love the fact that the Liebster has so many different looks 🙂

      Thanks again 🙂

      • It does doesn’t it? Although I always seem to get good old pink rosette 🙂

      • LOL! It could be worse 😉 I’m having problems with one rule – the bit about nominating blogs with less than 200 followers – many don’t actually don’t show that information 😦

      • I was luck with mine, they were showing it when they said something like, “click follow and join brrthp others” To be honest I can’t find where the amount of my followers are being shown.

      • LOL I just check my stats on the WordPress system 😉 But finding it on other sites is impossible if they don’t include the widget on their blog 🙂

      • Lol, yeah I meant I don’t know how other people are seeing how many followers I have.

      • There’s a setting in one of the widgets – possibly the email follow link one – which lets you choose whether to show how many followers you have 😉 Without that set, there’s no way they can find out 🙂

      • So it’s down to pure guesswork on their part, unless they know something we don’t. 🙂
