Passing on the blog love

First up, thank you so much to Steady Plodding for the Liebster Award! :-) I so enjoy blogging & reading about how everyone handles their finances. Everyone has their own approach, but the tips, tricks, & encouragement make it such an enjoyable hobby. Love it!

"Liebster" is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. What a gift to be awarded with such kindness!   As for the details...The Liebster is a way to show a little Blog Love to bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers.

The rules:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have fun!

And in no particular order, here are my 5 Liebster Awards, with some information culled from their bios:
1) If I were a Wealthy Girl -
…This year I am going to provide more personal info in this section. I am a 30 year old young professional living in the midwest working for a Fortune 500 company in a supply chain managment position.  I have been with my company for 4 years and now I am looking at other options.  This year I started two businesses 1) a financial coaching company in March and 2) a sweet treat company in July. Both companies are debt free and very much in the start-up phase. When I am not working, I like to train for half-marathons, take dance classes, read, spend time with friends and family and go to the dollar theater. I am not married, but I do have BF. Our views on money clash all the time, mainly because he has big money dreams and not plans.

 2) Blonde on a Budget
Blonde on a Budget is a twenty-something's journey from being a maxed out, overindulging idiot to becoming a balanced and financially sound woman.

3) Getting Ahead
We are a family of 6 in Ohio. We are striving to live a healthy lifestyle. We want to make our small neighborhood plot as self sufficient as possible

4) $12 A Day
A mom-to-be who has an amazing (& hardcore!) Plan: Spend an average of $12 a day on food, household supplies, and gifts. The Goal: Freedom

5) My Journey to Eliminate Debt
I started this blog in 2007 with a goal of paying off my mortgage in five years. After a long absence, I am back to finish the journey to eliminate debt.
