Spreading the Love

I want to thank Lynn at Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You for thinking of me with an award last week. I've seen this floating around, and it's fun to be included. The Liebster is a way to spotlight blogs with under 200 followers. The rules for this one are pretty simple:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.

Thanks again Lynn, you are too kind.

2. Reveal your 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. Most of my favorite blogs have less than 200 followers, so it's hard to choose 5. For this award, I went with blogs I haven't given a shout-out to yet, or if I have, it's been a while. Check 'em out and give 'em a follow-it's always nice to see that little number go up.

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!

To fulfill #5, I have a little video to share. With the American economy imploding, I think it's important to remember another calamity that recently befell Americans.

One more thing before I go. The Rileys watched Soul Surfer for Family Movie Night on Sunday. I'm sure you've heard about Bethany Hamilton, the young girl whose arm was bitten off by a shark. I really enjoyed this movie. My daughters will tell you I cried, maybe even a couple of times, but really, I just had something in my eye. Great movie.  


  1. Great list of blogs, crybaby.

  2. Tim, that video is pretty funny in face of all the "downer" news as of late. I needed something that I can't obsess over. I will be thinking of 5 and putting a post together. Thanks again for thinking of me.

  3. Munk: I know, I'm really getting soft as I age. Since you rocked the guest post this summer (most pageviews so far this year by the way), I figured I'd give your spot to someone else. You know you're blogalicious.

    Cheryl: Sometimes you gotta laugh to keep from cryin'. Looking forward to your five.

  4. Thanks Tim. You're too kind.
    I checked out your recommendations and appreciated each one.

  5. Wait, did you just call Munk blogalicious? Whaaaah?

    Congrats on the Liebster.

    I am so addicted to Netflix. It's true. My Pier 1 silk pillows are stained with the tears I shed when I heard the news of the price increase, but I gotta have my movies!!

  6. If you didn't cry during Soul Surfer, you are not human.

    Look forward to checking out your blog recommendations ...


  7. Soul Surfer sounds like a good movie. Thanks for the award. I'll pass it along soon. I enjoy your blog. Write on!

  8. Blogalicious! Yeah Baby!

    All those hits were me by the way, padding my stats.

  9. Congratulations to all the blog award peeps.

    Loved the video. (I cancelled Netflix)

  10. Thanks for the mention! I look forward to checking out the other blogs as well...

  11. There's no crying in blogging! Oh, that's right, you were watching a movie...and it was something in your eye.

  12. Tim- I'm just back on the grid. Thanks for this! It's been passed along to me once before, but I'm happy to accept it from you. ;)

    I've got to see that movie!
