Just a few days ago, I was awarded the Leibster Award. Well, that’s not quite true. I was offered it. By a young poet and friend from the UK! Hannah is a budding writer and blogger who delights in using her God-given gifts to encourage and inspire others. You can check out her blog, The Way of Delight here. Thanks, Hannah!
Since I had no other plans for this week’s post (I’m heading to the SoCal Christian Writer’s Conference tomorrow — can’t wait!) I decided to take her up on the offer. The award has been around for a number of years, morphing as it time went by. If you want the full story, you can read it at wordingwell.com I went online to find a few images for the award, which you see above.
So, why the award?
It’s main purpose is to share the the love of words via the blogs and bloggers you admire. The word, if I’m not mistaken, comes from “Liebe” — the word for love in German. Share the love, pass the love, follow the love of words — by introducing your readers to new blogs.
Here are are the rules (as Hannah was given them). BTW, remember the telephone game? You start with a comment whispered into the ear of the next person in line, and by the time it gets to the end, the message has morphed into something entirely different? Such it is with the Liebster Award rules.
Here are the latest RULES:
These were the questions Hannah gave me, so I will answer them. . .
Now it’s time to share the love and pay it forward. I’d like to nominate the following bloggers — if you feel overwhelmed and not able to contribute, no worries. Let me know in the comments below, and share a link to one of your favorite blogs:
Vivian Kirkfield — for her giving heart. She always seeks to encourage others on her blog or in person.
Edie Melson — for her helping heart — offering a variety of tips for writers. I look forward to her posts every day.
Betsy de Cruz — who has a heart for God’s Word. You will be mightily encouraged by her newsletters and latest book.
Rinda Beach — a new author friend to has a love for life and enthusiasm to spare!
Rachel Dodge — who has a heart for Jane Austen as I do, but knows much more about her since she’s done copious research on her life and novels.
Here are your questions ladies:
1. Give us a link to your favorite post of all time (on your blog, of course).
2. Which book do YOU wish you had written?
3. If you could jump into any novel, and become a character, which one would it be?
4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? And why? (This counts as one question.😆)
5. If you were on a stranded island, which food could you not live without?
6. If you were driven from your home, and had five minutes to pack, what would you take? (This is a question I asked at my book signing, since it relates to a scene at the beginning of my novel).
I hope you’ve learned something of value in this blogpost (it’s the teacher in me — sorry.)
By the way, The Heart Changer has 21 reviews right now on Amazon. Can you help me reach 25? If you have read my story, please give me an honest review on Amazon, (most important) Goodreads, Barnes and Noble and/or Bookbub. You can copy and paste the same review to all the online sites. Easy-peasy! I'd sure appreciate it!
And if you have purchased it, make sure you download The Heart Changer's theme song here.
