The Leibster Award

I got another award. This is obviously a good week. 

One of the great things about keeping a blog is that you have your own record of what you have been up to with your toddler. When I started writing this 4 months ago thats really all this was. But it is lovely to receive awards like this one and realise that others are reading about your week and enjoying what you have been up to, and maybe even taking some of the ideas and using them themselves. 

I discovered a lovely blog not so long ago called Happy Whimsical Hearts. I listed it in my top 15 for the Versatile Blogger Award and bizarrely at the same time as me listing Kelly, she was preparing to list me for this Liebster Blog award. A bit of mutual appreciation there. 

The word 'liebster' actually comes from the German word for love, friend or dearest.

The goal of the award is to spotlight up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers. The rules are:
1.              copy and paste the award on your blog
2.              thank the giver and link back to them
3.              reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
4.              hope that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers

Having just listed my top 15 'new' blogs a few days ago I actually really struggled to find another 5 with less than 200 followers. A lot of the blogs I read are very popular and the problem with newer and less well know blogs is, well, just that, they are less well known so unless they are putting themselves out there by linking to stuff they can be quite hard to find. Never the less I managed to find my five, and some of them were ones I had been reading for a while and just assumed had more followers than they did. 

In alphabetical order they are:

  1. Hi there- thanks so much for the mention! How is it I hadn't discovered your blog before?!! Brilliant stuff- I'll definitely be back :-)


I have decided to turn off comments on the blog as I am being inundated with spam. I do this with sadness as I love genuine comments from readers. If you would like to leave a comment please email me at or visit the TamingtheGoblin FaceBook page (you can access it through the FB icon in the top right corner of the blog homepage).
Thank you for taking the time to read the blog.
