Texas Farmers Daughter has been nominated for a Liebster Award—a really fun opportunity to meet and network with other bloggers. I was nominated by Michelle from Birds Fly South in May 2013, and again just recently by Brittany from Confessions of a Secret Crafter!
This intention of this award is to recognizes new up-and-coming bloggers and spread the word about all the small, but brilliant, blogs that often fly under the radar. This award gets passed around by the nominated bloggers, who in turn nominate other bloggers and sites. Love it!
As if the fact that it’s Friday wasn’t enough to cheer me up, here’s a little hidden gem that I came through my Facebook feed this morning.
Operation Nice… a site dedicated to making others happy with the simple concept of niceness. Here, blogger Melissa Morris posts motivational tips such as “88 Ways To Make a Stranger Smile”, shares inspirational stories her readers have shared with her, and takes on the overall ambitious goal of making the world just a little bit NICER. Good for her! I’m a new fan and can’t wait to make this site a regular stop.
Here’s what she says about her site:
Don’t you love it when people go out of their way to be nice? Like when someone waits to hold the door for you. Or when a stranger waves you into a line of traffic. Or even when a coworker shoots you a friendly smile along with a “have a nice day.” If everyone was a little bit nicer to the folks they encountered each day, perhaps the world would be a more pleasant place. Operation NICE was initiated to remind you that a little NICE goes a long way.
You absolutely must check out Craftberry Bush, a blog I’ve been following for a while now. Lily’s knack for design, craft ideas and eye for stunning detail completely amazes me. I basically want to live in her blog. So so pretty!
