Liebster Goodness


So yesterday I got a Liebster award doohickey from the lovely Mai Yang. Thank you very much for that. It's nice to know that I am in a list of someone's favourite blogs, I'm hardly in my own list of favourite blogs really. Anyway, that's a thank you to her, and a link (her name is a link in case you didn't notice...though I don't think you could have). So that's part one of my obligations down.


Part two is something I'm actually going to talk about rather than just do. Because I'm me, and I can't do anything without talking about it. Although sometimes I do actually do things without any grasp of my reasons why. So, yes, part two of my obligations as a receiver of this award.


Liebster Award” German word means “favorite”
-it should be spread to five bloggers
-thank and link back to the sender
-bloggers followers must be less than 200



At first I was kind of apprehensive about this. Partly because I couldn't really pick just five, partly because I didn't want to pick someone else that Mai picked, and she picked the people I would have, and partly because it all just seems like too much of a chain letter, or as someone else put it, a tagging game. I don't really go into those, and this did make me not totally want to do it. But then I got to really thinking, and decided that as well as being that, it's a way to say to someone "I seriously freakin love your blog." so that let me get over it. So, here are the five people I'm going to pass this along to, and God I hope they read it. Although I'll say this now, I'm not to fussed if you don't thank me, or link back to me, or pass it on yourself. I'm just trying to say thanks for posting good stuff, and I like what you do. 


Also if you're name is not on the list, please understand it was hard as Hell for me to pick just five, I'll add your name to my list of blogs to check out, it's all the way up there ^. I'm more than happy to do that, so without further ado, five awesome blogs. Oh wait there is some more ado. Pope Timothy and Cray, I love your blogs, but you didn't make the list because you made Mai's, and like I said, I didn't want to use the same people she did. You are on my list of favourite blogs. 


Okay, let's try this again:


1: The generally disgruntled malcontent of http://ageneralmalcontent.blogspot.com/. He speaks wise words, and does it in an interesting way. Follow him, and learn from him. Plus he's a really cool guy. He was the first person to use the contact me form, and we've chatted a bit off the blog.


2. Bob of http://gamingclasshero.blogspot.com/. On his last blog post we actually went totally off topic and had a discussion about anime in the comment section. All around cool guy, and like me his blog doesn't seem to be about much. It's not totally about gaming, but it is all good. He's funny and easily worth a read.


3. Fang http://blog.fangtalks.com/. Fang puts up a post a day, and puts up a lot of effort into his blog. Fang is someone I can like, and respect. Best of all, the blog is good! When Fang talks, please listen. It'll be worth it, I'm sure. Plus we're doing a collab post there today (hopefully) so be sure to follow or just check back later to check it out. I won't be putting it up here, as I already have a post up today, but I will be putting a link to it in a page.


4. Neon at http://utneon.blogspot.com/. Neon's been around this place for a while, and reads my work and comments a lot, and is a pretty good follower but other than that he has a good blog himself. It does seem to mostly be about gaming, and also features a video or two from his own gaming sessions. He doesn't update every day, but when he does, it might be small, but it's worth it. Remember, size doesn't matter. Or so I keep telling myself.

Last but not least, number five

The Hassidic plumber from http://hasidicplumber.blogspot.com/. I'm not trying to butter him up or anything. Against his will anyway. Or while he's awake. His blog is new, but it's funny, and he does put effort into it, and he typically always replies to a comment you leave. He's easily someone I can get behind and support. It's just a shame he's so far away because I do have some plumbing work he could do. Plus he says he'll do an interview with me. Again, I won't post it here, but I will post a link to it.

So, yes, that's all five, and I've thanked and linked to Mai, so that's that done. If you didn't make the top five, again, don't despair. It was hard to come up with those five, I wanted to just keep naming people, so wait until you see the page of blogs to check out before complaining to me. That page also has comments, so leave one there if you want to be added to it!

Now I'm off to slip into a coma.

  2. Aww congrats on your award! And I know how hard and somewhat tedious it can be to pass them on to other people.

  3. Thanks for awarding me, I owe you one~
    Now I'm not one to do these kind of things, so I'll most likely not go through with it, but blah, I may do it sometime in the distant, distant future. (Also, was that a Fang Talks - when Fang talks pun? I may use that for a proper slogan :0)

  4. Thanks for mentioning me, I like your blog also, one of the few that I visit regularly right now. :)
    I'm kinda surprised since my posts lately are a bit... err... useless so to say, since I have too many things on my mind and can't think of anything worthy to post. I'm not too good at writing so when I actually do write something, I have to think, that it's at least a bit worth it.

    I probably won't do my top 5, because I don't really like these chain letter types of things, even if it's positive like this one and not something like "If you won't send this to 20 people I'll murder you in your sleep" ..... or maybe I will, I'll see.

  5. @Fanglol yes that was an attempt at a pun :) I think it would make a good slogan ^^

  6. @Bob
    Yes when I first got it, as happy as I was I couldn't help but think "Chain letter" and I refuse to pass those things on. Even if you pass this on to 20 people I'll murder you while you sleep though. Well, not you. Your posts have been more fun than you think, and like I said you're a pretty cool guy too. We had a chat about anime in the comments lol. Just take something that's on your mind and post about it. You don't know if it's worth it unless you try.

  7. Thanks for encouragement. :)
    This reminds me, that I might actually write something about some animes I like..

    ReplyDelete
  8. @Bob I think that'd be a good idea :) If you turn each anime into a single post, that's like...a lot of posts lol.

  9. I'm glad you posted those links even if you were reluctant. I already follow three of them and now I'll definately be checking out the rest too. :)

  10. @StigmataHandjob They're all good, and I know how much doing something like this can increase traffic for someone who deserves it :)

  11. Hey congrats!! And nice nominees!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Your blog was quite deserving of the award! Thanks for your picks too. I found two new ones in there

    ReplyDelete
  13. great choices. I'd be hard pressed to pick just five as well, as there are many bloggers that I look up to for so many reasons, like you. This prize was well earned!

  14. I just checked out Mai Yang's blog and was blown away by the design. Most bloggers concentrate too much on writing that they completely ignore the looks of their blog. I'll be checking out the rest when I get the time.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well f*ck you too! >:(
    Naw, just kidding :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm gonna have to follow the people on your list I don't already follow! Thanks for this!

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Shawlol Shaw your blog is great, and it is what I rely on for most, if not all, of my gaming news :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Congrats on your award. (I guess). LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  19. i wish i could win something like this :(

  20. @Tony Storm You have 376 followers already so you're out of the running :P Maybe you'll get a proper award one day ^^ I'd love to be a blog of note. I don't even know how you become one, I just know the fantastic chaps at Beer For The Shower pulled it off.

  21. hehehe the Hasidic Plumber is taking over the internet. Congrats on the award and thanks for the shout out. I'm supposed to do the same and pick 5 and so on? I dont know how that works hahaha
    Anyway thanks again, interview is coming this week and im sorry i can fix your pipes, let me send you some beard hair in an envelope as a token of my appreaciation hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Hasidic Plumber That's how it's supposed to work, but I don't really expect anyone I give it to to pass it on. I just wanted to give a bit of a shout out, and say thanks for the awesome blogs. Can you send 2 lots of hair so I can eBay one and keep the other? Let's not pretend genuine Hasidic Plumber beard hair isn't going to sell.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ohh well, i'll try to pass that one. I don't know when, but hopefuly soon.
    Hmmm i guess 2 lots of hair would be too much, im not trying to make your rich, just to keep that hasidic memorabilia. It's similar to a barry bonds bat, a Maradona's football or Winston Churchill's hat. It's not something you should sell unless you are in desperate need of money.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Hasidic Plumber That's why I asked for 2 lol. An American friend of mine sent me a dollar in the mail, I'm still not sure why he did, but anyway I doubt I'd ever spend it if I ended up in America. Noob question time. How's this interview going to work anyway? I assumed you'd email me and we'd go back and forth, or you'd ask me for an IM or something, but you haven't done that.

  25. Bam. Numero uno. Thanks homeskillet. I'm not sure whether I'll keep the chain going or not. Most of my upcoming blog posts are already written

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've been pretty busy. I will try to email you the questions tomorrow morning, like 10 or 11am (-3 gmt) and try to publish it by friday or saturday if that's ok.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Didn't expect my blog to be up there, I'm still fairly new. :P

    Congrats to all the winners.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, i just figured i don't have your email. So feel free to contact me at hasidicplumber@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  29. I didn't know that this was a chain type thing. I won this too, but don't know how I feel about doing these kind of posts on my blog. Eh, I guess I could, I dunno. I'm trying to write a book here...but don't want to seem ungrateful.
    Oh well...hasidic Plumber is awesome. I totally agree.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @DWeilol Plumber's been going for about a week or two. You do deserve some more attention though :) I need to work on that "Visit these blogs nao page".

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Hasidic Plumber Well I went and emailed you, whenever you got time is good enough for me.

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Generally Disgruntled No problem, I had to push a post or two back myself to fit this in, and I've actually now totally cancelled a post I had coming up lol.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh man, I can't thank you enough for this =)
    Thanks for writing down those really flattering lines about me. I don't regret visiting you every day ;)
    Maybe one day I'll do a little blogging feature post, too (was that correct english?). You'll definitely be one of the first to appear there, my favorite philosopher hehe

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Neonlol sorry about this but because I'm so sarcastic I can't help but see sarcasm everywhere. If you weren't being sarcastic then thank you very much :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'll check them out, and I just found your blog too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. @AllenTesch Hey, always nice to meet a new person.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Of course I wasn't being sarcastic, hehe
    I'm really thankful for every kind of promotion
