I’ve Been Nominated for a Liebster Award!


I am so honored! I have recently been nominated for a Liebster Award by the beautiful blog, In My Roots. The Liebster Award is a fantastic way to recognize blogs you enjoy reading with fewer than 200 followers.

When nominated, the following rules apply to the nominees:

  1. Post 11 things about yourself.
  2. Answer the 11 questions posed by your nominator.
  3. Choose 11 blogs and link them in your post. Don’t forget to let them know they’ve been nominated.
  4. Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. No tag backs! We wouldn’t want people to get double nominations. Too much work for them anyways.

11 Interesting Things About Me

  1. I haven’t watched television in over a year and I do not miss it.
  2. I love bicycling.
  3. I once wanted to be a Primatologist… And then a Psychologist.

  5. I have a soft spot for The Phantom of the Opera.
  6. I once held the position of Stroke on a Crew team.
  7. I am relieved to no longer live in NYC and I deeply appreciate hearing the Atlantic ocean at night, but I secretly miss the mountains, evergreens, pines and cedars of the Pacific Northwest.

11-12 Blogs I Nominate

The following are some great blogs I’ve been reading in no particular order (it’s been really hard narrowing it down to 11 nominees!):

If for some reason I nominated any blog that has more than 200 followers, it’s because I couldn’t figure out how many followers you have on your website. (BTW, there’s no obligation to participate. I just wanted to let everyone know I think your blog is worth reading.)

11 Questions for the Nominees

  1. What’s your favorite book?
  2. Is there an animal you feel akin to?
  3. If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would it be?
  4. What item, person or animal could you not live without?
  5. Earth? Air? Fire? Water?
  6. Do you prefer daytime or nighttime?
  7. In one word how do your friends or family see you?
  8. Is the glass half full or half empty?
  9. During what century would you wish to live?
  10. What’s your favorite scent?
  11. Vampire or Werewolf? (Not Twilight related!)

I really hope you all take some time to read and enjoy these blogs!

Thank you again, Abbie from In My Roots.
