Now, to let my nominees know…
Wow, fmpoetry had a nice surprise this morning, as we’ve been given a Liebster Award by KJP Garcia. Many thanks to Kenyatta for the award. Also thanks to all the poets and readers that have kept this site going with their creativity and time.
The Liebster Award
KJP’s excellent blog had been awarded the Liebster by the writeitfeelit blog, and then Kenyatta was supposed to pick five blogs to pass it on to, and this blog was the first chosen on the list.
KJP explains the Liebster Award thus:
Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, and the award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.
If you receive the award, you should:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favourite bloggers and keep it going!
Passing on the Liebster Award
As this is a poetry site I thought I should focus on other poetry sites, and apologies to anybody who thinks they deserve to be on the list but aren’t. My five picks are:
A Site for Reading and Publishing Folding Mirror and Related Poetry
