The Liebster Award – I’ve been nominated


liebster award

As I walk down the virtual red carpet in my lovely designer gown, I feel esteemed at the fact that I’ve even made it this far.    I was surprised actually, to receive a nomination from a fellow blogger who had been nominated for two of these awards, http://www.mysticalwriterblog.com.    I met mystical writer through Blogging 101 University.    Her blog is about crystals, mandalas and other mystical things that intrique and stimulate our senses.    Things I enjoy as well.     My mouth dropped open, and my eyes went wide as I thought about the first person I wanted to share this experience with and how honored I felt to be nominated.

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers, who have less than 200 followers.  Liebster is a German word and means: sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.       Blogging is about sharing your experiences through written word, online to a community of people who like to encourage each other.    It’s about creating a community of people who love to write.

This friend who encouraged me to start writing, other than my Mother who always said I should write a book.     Is a man who I met, while following his cousins documentary.   He is a businessman with great advice, big shoulders and friendly manner.    I have always wanted to write in the past, but never followed through with my desire.  I am a person who loves to learn everything, and if I was a multimillionaire I would quit my job and do just that, study!     I have published authors in my family, and perhaps it is in our genes.   One of my cousins even won the Order of Canada for his published works.

When I thank my friend, he always says it was me and that’s where the words come from.  Well we all need encouragement to continue and http://www.pal-fitness.wordpress.com was the person behind mystical writer blog, receiving a nomination.     Encouragement is what help people reach higher and think outside the box.     Well this one has been a great start for me in a new avenue.
