I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award from fellow blogger Pernnille who is from Denmark and writes a lovely travel blog.
The Liebster Award
The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to fellow bloggers in order to support and encourage them in their blogging. The guidelines for receiving the award varies, however, the general rules are as follows:
– Post your award to your blog in a blog post
– Answer the 10 questions that were given to you by the fellow blogger who nominated you
– Nominate 3-10 other bloggers you have discovered with less than 3,000 followers
– Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer
Here are the questions Pernnille asked me to answer:
1-Why did you decide to create a blog? I’ve been writing for years, some creative pieces, but mostly freelance articles for magazines and newspapers. I’d wanted to create a blog for years, it just took me a while to go for it.
2-What do you hope to achieve with your blog? I truly hope people will enjoy my writing and that it will get them thinking about life, relationships and faith. I guess I hope my words help to connect us and lead us to understand each other just a bit better.
3-Which three words would you use to describe your blog? Inspirational, positive and faithful.
4-Which three words would you use to describe yourself? Thinker, traveler and reader.
5-What or whom inspires and motivates you in your life? I am inspired by my faith and my family.
6-What makes you happy? My family, faith, and friends of course. Beyond that I love to read, travel and write.
7-What is your favorite place or destination in the world (your home excluded)? I tend to love certain things about certain places so don’t really have a favorite destination. Once, my family and I took a drive on Beartooth Highway in southern Montana. The weather was perfect and the views on the drive were magnificent. I remember thinking there was not a more beautiful place on earth.
8-What or whom is your favorite song or music artist(s)? Please don’t limit me to one! I love all music with the exception or rap. My ipod is full of old rock, country, Christian contemporary, jazz, piano, classical and more.
9-What are your hopes and dreams for your future? I hope to write a second book and many more after that.
10-When you have passed away, how would you hope people characterize you? I hope people will say I was genuine and had a good heart. I hope they’ll remember me for my strong faith in God and say that my life reflected that faith.
I have chosen to nominate the following four bloggers due to their brilliance. I truly enjoy following these blogs:
Denise Rezsonya, Inspiring Teens and Families Through Faith
Lisanne, Quiet Confidence
Geralyn, Where My Feet Are
Sabra and David Penley, Simply One in Marriage
