Yay! How exciting to have Bookgirl nominated for a Liebster award. Another blogger describe it as a “Virtual Hug”; I like that.

I wish to thank fellow blogger http://ejmcgrorey.wordpress.com for nominating me. You are wonderful! It ‘s is so nice to have people say I’ve read and liked what you’ve written.

The Liebster award is a way to spread the word about new blogs you love, so I’ve joined the list and I hope to share with you some fantastic blogs and some random facts about moi!

The Rules

 

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.

2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)

3. answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.

4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.

5. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)

6. create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.

7. list these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:

8. 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!)

  1. Congratulations! A well-deserved award, and I enjoyed your answers. Duran Duran as a support act? That makes me feel sooo old somehow… Good luck at the Academy Awards! 😉

    Thanks so much for the nomination – greatly appreciated! 😀

    • You are welcome, It was an easy decision as I love your site. Yes I feel old too, but just getting to see Duran Duran live was amazing. I wasn’t allowed, in the 80’s,as my mother thought I was too young – well I wasn’t this time; that’s for sure.

  2. I sympathize with your first dream.

    Somehow people never accept my dream of finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and spending the rest of my life breeding unicorn/pegasi/laser-robot hybrids either. 😦

    In all seriousness, I am deeply honoured that you are enjoying my blog and I hope that I can put together something half as fun as you have here with your lovely questions.
