Good morning fellow blogger buddies!  Since today I will be at the Company Picnic all day, I thought it would be the perfect day to pass on this thing. 

I have been Liebsterized twice.  Once by L.G. Smith over at  Bards and Prophets and the second time by Nancy Thompson at  Nancy Thompson.  Thank you so much to both of you for giving me the opportunity to meet new bloggers and pass this on to a select few who have less than 200 followers.  Please keep the ball rolling.

The rules of the award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!
I nominate:
1. Botanist over at Views from the Bald Patch *
He is the toolman, knows everything there is to know about formatting...or he's really good at Poker. He also has a thousand pets, works too hard when left alone at home, likes the outdoors, and loves his Sci-Fi. Everyone can benefit from his expertise, and he does enjoy a good comment.
2. Carrie Butler at So You're a Writer *
she will single handed save the world. Care Bear Carrie holds a possitive view of society and is always willing to offer a helping hand. She's contantly coming up with cool ideas that could make the future of writing and publishing easier...if only publishing houses would listen.  (Yes, I already know you've been nominated, brat.) :)
3. Bethany at Ink-Splattered  *
she wowed with me her poetry and soothed me with her cool fantasy pics. I still don't know much about her. This is a call to Bethany to take a stand.
4. K. Taylore at Out of My Mind  *
she is too funny, a little too busy to post every day, but when she does it's a riot. Aside from the fact that she's a grandma, was a hot college girl, almost set her eyebrows on fire, and nearly peed in her cast, I don't know much about her. So step up Kt.
5. Shelly at The Life of a Novice Writer  *
she is a sweet lady who has my same taste in books and doesn't turn up her nose at my natural exuberance. I don't think I could ever shock her. She also has several tricks up her sleeve that will make us all better writers. It's a pleasure to know her.
Everyone have a wonderful day!
