Seems I've been Liebstered.

I'm not sure (I'm never quite sure) I understand the rules for this sort of thing, because I'm not much of a joiner and rarely play. But I am a blogwhore whenever it's not too much trouble, so I'll play along.

Here are the rules as they were sent:

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

2. Link back to the blogger who gave us the award

3. Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.

4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.

Okay, steps one and two are done. Posted the pic, linked it to Guffaw in AZ who sent it to me. At least I hope I did, but there's the link again just in case. And I'll go ahead and make him #1, both because he is one of my faves and because that automatically reduces my work load 20%.

Second would have to be Ian's Forgotten Weapons, though that's only technically a blog, because it's a great site. Also because he's got a Vickers and knows where I live.

But now comes the hard part, because I'm picking three more or less at random. According to the rules I have to leave out any with more than 200 "followers," (a datum I may or may not have access to, BTW,) and that leaves out every-day favorites like Claire and Tam and Unc. But okay, the idea is to plug smaller blogs - got it.

So here goes, in no particular order:

3. Bill St. Clair's End the War on Freedom may or may not be eligible under the rules, but it's probably my oldest continuous read since Claire's old blog shut down. Plus he's almost as big a whackjob as I am.

4. Keep It Simple Survival is another favorite, and another whose readership size I don't have any idea about. (This "rules" thing is a real pain.)

5. The Travis McGee Reader, fer shur, even though he never seems to write about Travis McGee any more.

This leaves out about a dozen old friend blogs, which hurts my feelings.

Oh boy... I'd hate to have to choose just five. I traipse around to at least 15 or 20 different blogs most days...

TUATK is among the early favorites, however. :)
