Liebster Award

liebster awardI am honored to accept the Liebster Award from Lisa over at Cuppa Sunshine & Sugar. She has a good thing going on over there, so definitely take a look and check her out! On first look, it appears I’ve won a chain letter, but in the blogosphere, it means someone is reading your blog, likes it and thinks it’s worth sharing, so I am truly thankful for this recognition as  a beginner blogger. Thanks for reading! Check out my nominees sites, too, they’re pretty great!

Award Rules:

  1. Link the person you were nominated by.
  2. Answer the questions from the blogger that nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  4. Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Notify nominees social media/blogs.

Here are my answers to Lisa’s questions:

  1. What is your favorite thing about blogging?

Connecting with other bloggers and sharing ideas with a larger group of people than I would have had the opportunity to meet in person.

2. What is something you have learned so far from blogging that you could pass on as a tip to new bloggers?

Read other people’s blogs. See how they write, how they put their sites together and what they have to say. There are so many amazing people putting their knowledge and lives out there in the blogosphere! It is humbling, educational and inspiring to find them!

3. What is one of the most awesome things we should know about you?

I make a great cup of coffee!

4. Favorite season of the year?

It depends where I am…Spring in Austin, Summer in Chicago, Fall in Vermont and Winter in Colorado…

5.Favorite color?

I love them all; I’d have the say the rainbow and every color in between!

6. One of your pet peeves? (ridiculous or not)

When people change lanes in front of me without a turn signal. Come on! It does not make you cool, it makes you inconsiderate. We are all trying to stay safe on the road. I will always leave a safe space for you to get in my lane, if I know you want to come over! Just let a sister know!

7. Favorite candy?

Twizzlers 🙂

8. Place you would like to travel to most if I handed you a ticket today.


9. Favorite number?

17 (my old lacrosse # 🙂

10. Morning person or Night Owl?

Morning person! Coffee helps 🙂

11. What is your favorite post that you have written to date and why? (Please include link so we can read it).

I really love my post on skins and peels. I think it is because it was an answer to a question and request from a reader (one of my nominees) and it felt great to write this post as part of that conversation/connection.

Here are my 11 nominees and questions for them (with no pressure to accept):

jane can

2. What impact do you want to have on the world?

3. What do you love about blogging? Why do you do it? (2 questions, but kinda 1…)

4. What is your favorite food?

5. What is one thing you love about yourself?

6. What is one trait you admire in others?
