The Liebster Award

I owe Terry1954 a great big hug for nominating Grandmother Musings for the Liebster Blog Award. When I first began blogging, I would read other blogger’s posts and wonder at all the awards posted. I wondered if I would ever receive an award.  In the spring, Terry1954 sent me a note saying that she had nominated me for the Sisterhood Award.  I was so excited that I called my husband at work to let him know that I had won an award.  Since then, I have been honored with several awards, and I owe it all to Terry for starting the blessings.

Please visit Terry at her blog.  She is a loving and beautiful woman who shares the highs and lows of life with her readers.  She affectionately cares for her brother, Al, with Parkinson’s disease. Terry also writes wonderful poems and stories to warm your heart. She is a very talented writer and blogger for whom you will want to follow.

The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. What is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

So what do we have to do to show our appreciation?

  1. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
  2. Choose 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
  3. Go to their page and tell them.

If you could go anywhere, where would you go, and why?

I would like to go to the Bahamas or some island paradise. I want to feel the warmth of the white sands in my toes, smell the ocean and the tropical flowers, and just relax.

What was your reason for starting a blog on WordPress?

My reason for starting a blog was to write. I have always been a writer, but was not practicing the craft. My blog gives me a place and a reason to write every day.

What is your most frequently visited blog and why?

20 lines or less is a blog I frequent often. I love to see what new challenges are posted.
