The Liebster Award

Thanks Francesca!

This is an award intended to give little known bloggers new attention. Ever heard of something called a wake up call? Here I am nearly seven months into my blogging experience and I felt like I had made a splash in my end of the pool. I suppose I have, but I am still consider in the rookie leagues. You see the Liebster is only awarded to those with less than 200 WordPress followers. As of the writing of this post I stand at 198. Francesca from Dr. Franny and Mrs. Myself felt like I needed the extra attention and for that I thank her. Thank you so much Francesca!

Perhaps this is my chance to “Pay It Forward” by giving some lesser seen blogs a chance to show their stuff. Here is the rules for those who are not familiar with this award!

First of all you have to accept the award, post the picture of the Liebster Award on the top of post and say who nominated you for the award and link their blog site. Check!

  4. Joe, thanks so much. I’m honored. I was awarded the Liebster already (which I understand is the German word for dearest). Very interesting random facts. Thanks again .. there are no questions here, but will answer one from Franny … between pirates and vampires, I also prefer pirates, and I like your answer here … because they at least are real.

So you took time to read what I wrote and I appreciate it, but comments are even better!
