The Liebster Award is a way to support and bring recognition to each other’s blogs.

 Here are the rules of the Liebster Award:

  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog in your post.
  • Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget” (the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post).
  • Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
  • Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a count that lets the readers know this information)
  • Create a new list of questions for the nominees to answer
  • List these rules in your post (copy and paste from here). Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
  • Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster Award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

 Questions from Travelling Through Words

  1. What do you love the most about books?  I love getting lost in other worlds.  My life is a crazy rush of work and being a mom, so sometimes it’s fun to lose myself in an imaginary world where all the men look like Joe Manganiello.
  2. Name a book character you would like to be.
  3. What is your biggest bookish pet peeve?  Spelling and grammatical errors.  They make me crazy.
  4. What is your favorite stand-alone book?  Sphere by Michael Crichton.
  5. What is your favorite movie of all time?  The Godfather Part 2.  I love watching Michael’s character change over the course of the two movies.
  6. Name a book you hate the most.  Wow, this is a hard one.  I really don’t know. I hated The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.  Yeah, the Jungle.
  7. Name a book that influenced you.  I don’t have a book that influenced me, but the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” changed my life in a very positive way.
  8. Name a genre that you never read from.  Horror.  I hate horror.
  9. What is your dream job?  Elementary school teacher.
  10. Name a book that you hate to love.  Wow, another hard question.  I’d have to say Twilight.  So bad it’s embarrassing.
  11. Why did you start a blog?  I had been busy for three years chairing a fundraiser, and felt like I needed a new hobby.  I really only started the blog for myself, but it makes me really happy that other’s read it.
