More Warm and More Fuzzy

March 10, 2013 at 6:51 pm 18 comments

Since I have returned to blogging – mid-January – I have been very busy.  Other than life stuff I have had to deal with, I have been busy writing and getting to know many, many wonderful writers out in the blogosphere.  I will say it has been truly my pleasure to have read some incredible pieces and I would also like to add that I have been inspired – inspired by so many incredible words, feelings, ideas, and the list could go on……

One of the interesting aspects of being a part of this unique community is the recognition that we can bestow or receive from our fellow bloggers.  One such kudo is the Liebster award, which highlights smaller blogs – with less than 200 followers.  I was honored with the Liebster by   Her blog caught my attention due to a piece written about Legos.  Her child is at the age where life pretty much revolves around Legos and my son is breaking away.  She is a wonderful writer and her wit always leaves me in stitches.   Please visit her site – you are in for a treat.

I have come to the conclusion that when it comes to awards, the criteria has a habit of changing.   I have seen lots of wonderful ‘award acceptance blogs’ out in the sphere, but what seems to be the consistent duties are as follows:

The Liebster duties:

1.  Post 11 facts about myself.

2.  Answer the 11 questions posed by the nominator.

3.  Pass the love to 11 other bloggers &

4.  Pose 11 new questions for the newly ‘loved’ to answer.

So – I am going to combine duty #1 and #2 – since #2 will also do the job of #1 – did you get that??

I & II:

1. What is your anxiety level on a daily basisthis depends on what exactly is going on.  I can be bonkers or calm as a cucumber

2. Coffee or tea – coffee (but tea when I am sick)

3. What motivates you to write your blog – to communicate – use my voice

4. Mac or PC – PC

5. Mini-van, SUV, or none of the above – none of the above – I drive a Scion XB – aka as a box with four wheels

6. Favorite TV show, current or all time – this is much too difficult.  The first comes to mind is Star Trek.

7. Least favorite parenting momentgetting my two boys to straighten up their room – or straighten anything, really.

8. What is one thing fear is preventing you from doing? I have had many through the years, but in the last year it has been making a decision in regards to career/job.

9. Night owl or early riser – early riser

10. What do you like to cook? If you don’t cook, what do you like to order? – anything with pasta

11: Best vacation spot – Hawaii

12: Favorite quote you live by“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than one’s fear”  – Ambrose Redmoon.  I had this written on my arm (with a black Sharpie) when I competed in Ironman Wisconsin)

III.  Passing the love…………………..












IV.  New Questions

1.  what was your first job?

2.  favorite subject in school (lunch and gym do not count:) –

3.  If you had to pick your last meal ever –

4.  first pet (a rock or imaginary pet will qualify) –

5.  girls – one piece or bikini / boys – trunks or Speedo

6.  the one place in the world you want to see before you die –

7.  most famous person you have ever met –

8.  to explore the depths of the ocean or the galaxy –

9.  do you prefer the first 3 Star Wars films (the original 3) OR the 2nd three Star Wars films –

10.  your ultimate wish for all of mankind –

11.  prefer winter weather or summer weather –

I would like to thank again – AccountExecTurnedMommy – and to encourage my fellow blogophiles to pay a visit to the above 11 blogs – they are awesome, inspiring and just totally cool places to hang out!  & I would like to say that it is a pleasure and honor to be part of such a wonderful community!

    Congratulations and many thanks for sharing the love with me. I am grateful that I get to pick more great blogs to share with others.

    I only realised that you had so graciously included my blog though by visiting your blog. Perhaps you might want to notify the other nominees otherwise they won’t know until they visit here.Maybe leave a message on their about page with a link to your post about the award.

    It will take me a couple of days to compile the list and questions so I’ll apologise in advance for not completing this immediately. Many, many thanks.

    • 5. words4jp  |  March 11, 2013 at 12:25 pm

      Thanks for letting me know. I cannot figure out for the life of me how to do a ping back. Grrrr – my youngest was helping – obviously we get an F. 🙂

      I will try to fix, if no can ping, then will notify directly. I almost said sing!

      • 6. keladelaide  |  March 11, 2013 at 12:35 pm

        I just learnt how to do them properly. It seems I get an ‘F’ too. Have a look at this if you have time and see if it helps.

      • 7. words4jp  |  March 11, 2013 at 1:39 pm

        thanks – i just tried for over an hour and I am just not getting this. it is so frustrating to me. Down below I just copy and pasted the url of the post. (I hate pooters – well, sometimes)

      • 8. keladelaide  |  March 12, 2013 at 1:36 am

        That’s all I did for my first award. I just went to each blog and posted a comment with the link to my post about the award. I’ll let you know if I can manage to get it right this time.

    Hi! I discovered your blog through one of the blogs you nominated for this award, Are there blogging communities for blogs like mine? I’ve just returned to blogging a couple of months ago and love how you build community in the blogosphere.
    Be blessed,

    • 17. words4jp  |  April 20, 2013 at 12:28 pm

      Hi Kimberly. First off, thank you so much for reading. I appreciate you taking the time to click on my web address and check me out;)

      The answer to your question has already been answered. – by you. All it takes is reading others’ blogs, finding those you connect with and reading, commenting and following. For me, I enjoy reading the blogs on my reader. They speak to me in someway. I also enjoy commenting. I can understand so much of what they write or how they feel. I follow many – the ones I truly connect with in someway, which is just like meeting or talking to someone in person

      This is really it. I have met some wonderful people and I can truly say that many have become very good friends. So, keep doing what you do;)

      • 18. gladeslibrarian  |  April 20, 2013 at 12:33 pm

        Well, that’s easy enough. Those are all things I do – and enjoy doing. Thanks for your response. I’m on my way 🙂
