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.

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.

  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.
