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 (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. 🙂 

liebster

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 surf 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.

  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.
