A huge thank you to Maryanne of the Lucky Leo blog for giving tinkerwolf the Liebster award. I stumbled across Maryanne’s blog when I very first started blogging because she posted about her mom’s chihuahua, Fawn (RIP little one). I’ve followed Maryanne’s blog ever since and her posts are guaranteed to put me in a more positive frame of mind.


I’d never heard of “The Liebster Award” but a little investigation led me to understand it’s supposed to be for new bloggers with under 200 followers. I haven’t checked how many I followers I have recently so here goes: (WordPress: 130, Facebook: 195, Twitter : 32 (note to self, I really must get my act together re using twitter!) so that’s 357 followers, crumbs. Although I guess some will be doubles I’m still really pleased.

I know Maryanne said “I’m not sure how many followers the people I nominated have, but it’s nice to have an award, so I’m just giving it to people that have great blogs!”  I think I’m going to follow suit, I”ll try and stick with blogs without thousands of followers but I’m not going to check every one I give the award to 🙂

These are the official rules for receiving the Liebster Award:
