My Musings,

My First Liebster Award

Blogging for me is an extension of who I am. I call it therapy on one day, while hobby on the next day. I really don’t mind about blogger awards per se, but of course, that would be nice. More so, I don’t blog to get recognition, but for myself and my readers.

I am no expert in motherhood, parenting or even being a wife but I try my best to be the best mom to Noa. I strive to account my motherhood milestones in this blog and I’m really happy whenever I receive feedback, comments and suggestions from my readers on how my blog has helped them to be the best mom they can be.

Now, I am receiving this Liebster Award. I’ve been blogging for quite sometime now but this is the first time I am hearing about this kind of recognition.

What is a Liebster Award?

“Liebster is a German word whose meanings include kindest, dearest, favorite, valued, welcome.”

The Liebster Award recognizes new and upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers (or friends) on their contribution to the blogging world.

But before accepting the award, some rules have to be followed:

  • Write 11 things about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you PLUS you must create 11 more for the people that you will nominate for this award.
  • Select up to 11 bloggers; linking them to your post.
  • Go to their page and inform them of the nomination Strictly NO tags back.
  • Only tag bloggers with less than 200 followers.

Thanks to my friend, Mommy Krystyna for this appreciation. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are my answers to the random things list:

  1. I don’t eat anything with beans.
  2. I cannot sleep at night with the lights turned ON.
  3. I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in princess, prince charming on the white horse, evil witches and fairy godmothers.
  4. My shoe size is now 8. I used to be a 7.
  5. Don’t ask me to bring an umbrella or a handkerchief when I go out of the house. Chances are, I’m coming back home certainly without them.
  6. I want to meet CS Lewis in heaven one day when I die and ask him about the books he wrote because for me he is a literary genius!
  7. I want to marry John Mayer if I didn’t marry my husband. He is my ultimate crooner!
  8. My husband is my first and last boyfriend. We dated for 3 years before I said yes to marry him.
  9. I don’t like wearing make-ups. Tinted Lip Balm alone is already a make-up for me.
  10. I want to go to Santorini, Greeceย and Prague one day.
  11. I believe in Jesus Christ with all my heart and soul.

Now to answer Mommy Krystyna’s question:

When and why did you start blogging?

  • I started blogging in 2002 because I like keeping a traditional diary. I grew tired of hiding it from my mom so I decided to make a more “open” one.

What are your thoughts now?

  • I wish we can go to Baguio as a family on February 2013.

What makes you smile?
