Liebster Award


Well, I'm happy to say that I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Karri at My Life's A Treasure.  Now to be honest, I had never heard of this award.  So I Googled it and got tons of hits from other blogs that had received it.  I don't feel so special anymore. :(

Seriously though, the Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.  I would guess that it was created to boost followers for small bloggers.  Sounds like a smart idea!

Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

The rules for the award winners are as follows:

Post about your win on your blog.
In your post, share 5 random facts about yourself.
Copy and paste the award button to your blog.
Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award and follow their blog.
Nominate 5 deserving blogs with less than 200 followers for the award.
Let them know by leaving them a comment on their blog

OK, my random facts:

   1.  At 50, I went back to school for a year and earned 2 degrees - Medical Administrative Assistant and Accounting Assistant. (But now I just blog-go figure.)
   2.  I've been in Tennessee for 4 years now and love it but miss Mississippi every day.  It will always be home.
   3.  I was the only one out of 6 siblings that never failed a grade and graduated high school at 17 years old.
   4.  I was a Casino Pit Supervisor for 5 years.
   5.  I love cats but don't own any.

Wow, that was actually hard. 

Now, to my nominations, in no particular order:

                      Handmade Harbour
                      All From The Heart Crafts
                      Talking Trash Wasting Time
                      Creative Juice By Shely Wely
                      Its On Random

By the way, all these blogs are on http://www.craftblogs.org/ along with me.  If you're not familiar with it, you vote for blogs you like, to increase their boost number.  I would be grateful for your vote.  I'm very low on the totum. :)
Til next time, have fun!
