The Liebster Award

Today, my new blog buddy A. Catherine Noon nominated me for a Liebster Award. From the post on her blog I learned that:

The Liebster Blog Award is an award offered to upcoming bloggers. The German word Liebster is a word for favorite, dearest, beloved, sweetest, cutest, nicest, kind, and pleasant.

Here are the rules:

1. post 11 things about yourself

2. answer the questions that the nominator has set for you and create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer

3. choose 5 people and link them in your post

4. Go to their blogs and tell them in a comment

REMEMBER, No tag backs!

11 Things About Me

1. I love the aroma of coffee, but I don’t like to drink it.

2. I am also not a morning person, but the older I get, the less I can stay up late, so I guess I’m now a ‘middle of the day’ person.

3. I love to take long walks. Walking is a form of meditation for me.

4. I’m a life-long sci-fi fan.

5. I’m a chocoholic.

6. I spent most of my life despising celery, until about a week ago. Now I love it.

7. I used to consider myself a ‘dog’ person, now I’m a ‘cat’ person.

8. I can’t go into a movie theater late. I need to be there before the previews start.

9. I taught myself to like mustard.

10. I just started Tweeting, but I don’t Facebook.

11. I’m suspicious of Siri. I don’t like electronic devices to talk back.

My nominator didn’t post new questions to me, so I’ll answer the ones from her post:

1. Why did you start blogging?

It seemed like a great way to feed my need to write a little non-fiction now and then.

2. How has blogging affected your life?

I’ve met a lot of great people, but it’s also a huge time-suck.

3. Would you call yourself a 'blog-addict'?


4. Which two words describe your personal style perfectly?

Shabby chic.

5. What is your favorite time of the day and why?

9:00 PM That’s when my writing work day ends.

6. What is your inspiration in life?

7. How do you plan to spend the next three years?

I hope to launch a new romance series, and make enough money to pay off my bills and take a decent vacation.

8. What is your favorite time of the day? Why?

See question 5.

9. Which blogger inspires you the most in the blogging world?
