Hobbinol’s Blog is delighted to announce that it has been nominated for a Liebster Blog award by Thomas and Ethel of:


The Award is given to talented bloggers who, in what is seen as a complete travesty, have less than 200 followers so as to encourage new connections.

Liebster is German and means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ but it can also mean ‘favourite’ and the idea of the Liebster award is to bring attention (and possibly more subscribers) to blogs with less than 200 followers. I am following fourwindowpress’s lead by writing a post about the award and passing it on to five more bloggers.

The Rules are:

Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
Post the award on your blog.
Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogosphere – other bloggers.
And, best of all – have fun and spread the karma.

So without further ado I would like to nominate the following:

http://mathewlyons.wordpress.com/ – a very knowledgable historian who focuses on the English Renaissance.

http://vulpeslibris.wordpress.com/ – contains very informative book reviews including a whole week dedicated to Shakespeare.

http://www.shakespearesengland.com/ – fascinating blog about seventeenth century England.

Early Modern England – full of interesting posts.

Postcards from Early Modern England – concentrates on sexuality.
