Happy Saturday! It's hard to believe my friends and family on the east coast are battling Hurricane Irene when there's not a cloud in the sky here in Colorado.
I hope my friends and blog follower will play along with this and help some great writers get more of a following.
My friend, author Cathy West, gave me The Liebster Blog Award! (Liebster is a German word for friend, btw.) This award is meant to go to blogs we enjoy who currently have less than 200 followers. You may remember that I blogged about Cathy's debut novel, Yesterday's Tomorrow a few weeks ago.
Now I have the privilege of passing the award along to some of my blogging buddies:
Loretta Oakes blogs at Complementary Thoughts. Loretta and I met when we joined the same writers' group a few years ago. She's a fun and deep girl. Loretta's blog boasts that it finds a balance for science and religion. And it does.
I met Kay Day at a writers' workshop in Colorado Springs. She blogs at Loopdeloops in La La Land. When I heard she was moving to my town I harassed her until she agreed to join my local writers' group. She did, and we became friends. Kay is known for her sweet disposition and quirky humor. You'll love her insights.
My friend Helen, Colorado Springs writer is as thoughtful as she is sweet. Helen's Points to Ponder is a great blog.
Do you like snarky observations on everyday life? If so, The Journey of Writer Danica Favorite will crack you up!
Bonnie Doran is one of my critique partners. Her blog Prose from the Pros is always full of great insight, helpful writing tips, and examples of brilliant writing -- from professionals. It's well worth following.
If I have just awarded you The Liebster, here are the rules:
- Thank the person who gave you the award, and link back to them.
- Give The Liebster Award to five bloggers, and let them know in a comment on their blog.
- Copy and paste the award to your blog.
- Have faith your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.

I hope you'll discover some great up-and-coming authors to love.
