The Liebster Award!

I am once again honored and forever grateful to have been nominated for The Liebster Award by Tempest Rose  at Nonsense & Shenanigans: Trying to make sense out of the nonsense and shenanigans…but usually achieving the opposite.

liebsterawardThe Liebster Award recognizes new, up and coming  bloggers who have a certain number of followers, ranges from 200 to 3,000. Liebster is German meaning “beloved” “sweetest” “dearest”.  Essentially, I like to view this award as acknowledging some of the “sweetest” bloggers who connect their blogs to their viewers in a welcoming and hearty fashion.

If you wish to accept this award, the following guidelines are below. There is no pressure to accept the award. I find your blog genuine and would like you to know that I value your honesty and content.

The steps for The Liebster Award are as follows:

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award! A warm, hearty, & standing ovation thank you to Tempest Rose for recognizing the good in my blog!
  • Add The Liebster Award logo to your post and blog.
  • Answer 10 questions provided to you by the person who nominated you.
  • Provide 10 questions of your own for your nominees to answer.
  • Nominate 7 bloggers for the award and notify them.

**These are the general guidelines. With that being said, you do not have to do the full amount to accept the award. You can answer and/or ask only one question,nominate one person, whatever you feel comfortable doing. **

Questions for me to answer by Tempest Rose:

  1. What is one thing about your country that makes you unbelievably proud? – I live in the United States of America and I am proud to have the freedom to speak whatever my heart desires and the right to equal justice. I have several homosexual friends and I am so proud they have the right to get married and be happy here in America.
  2. Why did you start blogging? – I started my blog to raise mental illness awareness, stop the stigma, and save a life. I loss my best friend of 10 years to suicide on March 26th, 2014. She stood up for mental illness as I shied away from my illness. I want to continue her vision by sharing my story and help save a life.
  3. What is your one, ultimate, life-long dream? – My one, ultimate, life-long dream is to establish a scholarship fund in my name to give to young adults and teenagers who battle with mental illness and are afraid to speak out about it. One of the several things I want to do before I “die” i.e. on my bucket list. 

Questions for my Nominees to pick and choose to answer:

  1. If you were stranded on an island and only had 3 things, what would they be?
