The Liebster Blog Award

The Liebster Blog Award, I discovered recently, recognizes up-and-coming blogs with small audiences and big heart. It is awarded by bloggers to fellow bloggers. How do I know this? Because Caramels on Maple Street became one of its recipients last week — how cool is that? Now it’s my turn to pay it forward and give a big Liebster Award shout-out recognizing some of my favorite blogs, here below.

Here’s how it works, fellow winners:

1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
3. Copy and paste the blog award image on your blog.
4. Name your 5 blog picks.
5. Let them know you chose them by leaving a comment on their blog.
First order of business: Many many thanks to the blog Yes, We’re Together, (one of the most common things you’ll hear an interracial couple say, still, in American society).
My five blog picks, in no particular order, are:
1. Roots and Rambles — where “New England house historian and genealogist Marian Pierre-Louis explores genealogy, old houses, and history.”
2. Vintage Black Glamour — “a visual tribute to glamorous, inspiring, groundbreaking black women of the 20th century.”
3. Rage Against the Minivan — where a mom-of-four blogger “indulges in sleep-deprived rants about parenting, poop, adoption, politics, race, religion, and social justice.”
4. Boz Around — travel notes and inspiration for the modern family.
5. Outdoor Afro — “a community that reconnects African-Americans with natural spaces and one another through recreational activities.”
History. Glamour. Adoption. Travel. And getting back to the land. All of these blogs inspire me! And that’s all she wrote, folks . . .
