Sharing is caring!

I’d like to thank Vicki M. Taylor for nominating my blog for the Liebster Award!  Vicki’s blog is Your Writing Coach, so I felt it was especially kind of her to nominate me!  Woohoo! I’m a curious type so I wanted to know what exactly was a Liebster Award.  According to Sopphey Says, the Liebster Award (Liebster means dearest in German) originated in Germany in 2010. When it first started, when you accepted your award, you then nominate between 3 to 5 bloggers with less than 3,000 readers.  Over the past few years, the rules have been tweaked and refined.  With the millions, if not billions of blogs out there now, it’s been changed to choosing 11 bloggers with less than 200 subscribers to be nominated for the award. I love the idea of this award–it acknowledges smaller blogs out there and continues this in perpetuity by having the recipients nominate other blogs as well.  I like to see people recognized for their hard work and effort! So, in accepting my award (thank you, thank you!), there are a few rules I need to follow, but I have to admit, I have had trouble with finding 11 smaller blogs to notify because of my busy schedule.  I did read in passing somewhere, that a recipient can simply accept the Award, so I will have to elect to do this for the time being.  I hope to, in the future, select 11 bloggers who rightfully deserve this award.  If anyone has suggestions, I would love to hear from you!

Here are my answers to the questions:
  1. What is the first thing you notice about people? I notice people’s energy. I notice if I feel good around them or if something is “off.”  Guess it didn’t work too well in my first marriage…
  2. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?  That’d be my husband!  Love that guy!
  3. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?  Great question!  Ummm…sky blue.  I’d want to be used by the kids for their enjoyment and I think they’d use a lot of blue for their skies! 
  4. Scary movies or happy endings?  Happy endings.  Definitely.
  5. What book are you reading now?  The Family Crucible, Heart Thoughts, Psychocybernetics
  6. What is the least favorite thing about yourself?  My feet. I’m a runner.  
  7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?  Most of the time, yes.
  8. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?  Definitely!  
  9. Would you bungee jump?  Um, no.
  10. What is your favorite cereal?  Cocoa Krispies.  I’m gluten-free.  It’s chocolate.
  11. What is the farthest you have been from home?  Hong Kong and Beijing.
