For the Record: My 1st

Morning of July 11, I received this post from Scottishmomus:

 “I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award. Enjoy.x”

To which i replied with:

 “Hi, scottishmomus (! Your post is a beautiful morning surprise for me.

Thanks a lot for the nomination though I have no idea how one finally gets a Liebster Award. Being new at wordpress and my first time to be nominated, I’ll appreciate it much if you will orient me on this.

I am truly honored and inspired.:-)

If I did not read The Vanilla Housewife’s post at yesterday, I wouldn’t know that I could just opt to grab the badge of a blogger award nomination without going through the process or applying the stipulated rules. On the other hand, I followed Missus V.’s instructions when she gave me my second nomination. 
So for this Liebster Award, I am posting this with so much pride. 


Again and formally this time, I would like to accept the nomination of Scottishmomus ( You are a darling for being the first kindred blogger of mine who thought of this. Many thanks to you!
For fear that I do not deserve this blogger award, I had to google what this Liebster Award is for.
Allow me to quote from Ashley’s blog at
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn’t that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.
Reading this, I had to finally agree that I deserve the award since I clearly met the only criterion. As of this writing, I have exactly 168 followers. My overflowing thanks to you!
I wonder what my award will be when my stalkers…er… followers become 201. Hehehehe.

  1. obviously, the same experience happened to me as shown by my reply to scottishmomus. 🙂 🙂

    receiving the bouquet of award from you actually gave a boost to my self-confidence to finally accept the liebster award. you know, i had this hidden fear that if i accepted it, someone might question my being awarded and later on strip me of my award. hahahahaha…

    maraming salamat. 🙂


  2. I guess WordPress has found a way to build a family of bloggers who support and encourage each other through this blogger award. One thing though is that there are those who simply do the ” courtesy follows” and never read the entries, but just click ” like” so as to get connected to other bloggers and readers with their links. Spammers also get in the way of discerning your legitimate readers. I follow several blogs in WordPress ( including yours of course; however, for months I have been a “silent lurker” ( I don’t want to include myself with ” stalkers”, though it no longer means the same in cyber space. Now they are the tab-keepers or anonymous followers…at least you know me, haha:)
    Anyway, friend you deserve the nomination. if i have a blog here I won’t hesitate giving my vote.


    1. one of the reasons why i am updating my blog is for my “uppers” who continue to motivate me with their sincere following. you are one of the few, friend and i thank you for that.

      agree, “silent lurker” is the right term. 🙂

      now, that’s another booster from you. maraming maraming salamat.
