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 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!
