G - Goodwill : Liebster Award.


Goodwill is important for a blog and the blogger. It manifests in many ways, as a dedicated following.. personally for me, the comments that I receive for my posts are the best way. Even if it is a two word comment, when I see comments, it helps me feel inspired, and urges me to do better ...

Another way is to be given an AWARD .! I have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award from the blog Views of an Optimist. 

A big THANK YOU..for that !!



The Liebster Award has gone through quite a transformation, as it has been passed down... Almost all blogs have asked the link back, while I have been asked not to... !! It is said that it stands for everything encouraging and nice for budding blogs... So apt for mine !!

The rules are as follows ....



After a lot of searching, this is the conclusion I arrived at ..The main idea of the Liebster Blog Award appears to be an attempt to offer public recognition to relatively new and unknown bloggers and blogs...


These are the Rules nominees are supposed to follow:
1. The Liebster is given to bloggers  who have less that 200 followers.
2. Each blogger should post eleven facts about himself or herself.
3. Each blogger should answer the eleven questions that are asked by the person doing the nominating. (I reduced this number) 
4. Choose eleven new bloggers to nominate for the Award and link to them in the post.
5. Create eleven new questions for your nominees.
6. Go back to their pages and tell them they have been nominated.
7. Link Back to the blog that awarded you.

I did change the last rule of No tag backs, to the opposite, because  for a new blog, the link backs are really important... 

11 facts about myself

1. My family and friends are my first priority..
2. I prefer tangy things to sweet..
3. I hate to go shopping for clothes, or groceries.
4, I can spend days in a craft supply store, a stationery shop or a library.
5. I feel more happy meeting an Artisan, than a celebrity...
6. On a weekend, while in college, I once went without food for more than 48 hours while I read 18 books    back to back...ah bliss !!!
7. I still cannot say which is my favorite color!!! I love a lot of them..
8. Country and folk art is addictive and inspiring
9. I love visiting homes that are centuries old.
10. If I could afford it, I would get a massage everyday !!
11. The best gift anyone could give me, is a book...
