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 (http://scottishmomus.wordpress.com/)! 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 http://thevanillahousewife.wordpress.com/2013/08/20/how-valerie-and-i-met-in-brazil-and-some-random-facts/ 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 (http://scottishmomus.wordpress.com/). 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 http://www.welovedhere.com/2012/07/we-loved-here-liebster-award.html.
“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.
