Liebster Award?!

My cyber-buddy Reva from Living in Dreamland nominated me for a Liebster Award. Thanks, Reva! It’s doubly exciting since you’re not a family member and you live half-way around the world. The internet is pretty amazing that way. From what I understand, Liebster Awards are given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers by other bloggers that think they deserve some recognition. I don’t think this is anything formal, it seems to be like an blog-chain letter. There are four steps a nominee takes to receive this award:

  1. List 11 things about yourself.
  2. Answer your nominator’s 11 questions.
  3. Choose up to 11 bloggers with fewer than 200 followers and ask them 11 of your own questions.
  4. Inform your nominees of their award nominations.

Numbers 3 and 4 will be difficult because I am new to the blogging world (do I remember people calling it the “blogosphere”?), so I’m not sure I’ve even read 11 blogs. Numbers 1 and 2 I can’t manage right now, but I’ll try later or tomorrow.

That cheered me up no end, Reva. It brought me out of my funk a bit. I’m grateful for the blogosphere. 🙂
