I started a blog because I enjoy writing. Sometimes it’s the writing part of writing that I enjoy. Taking the time to craft my words so they wind and twist delightfully through my readers’ mind is a challenge I enjoy taking on. Other times, and most often in this blog, I get my words ‘on paper’ as fast as possible before someone poops, breaks something or sets the house on fire. Nonetheless, I write because it’s what I like to do, so for other bloggers to enjoy my writing enough to nominate me for an award is just the icing on the cake.
The Liebster award is awarded to bloggers to try to promote their blog and also bring together a community of bloggers. The rules are as follows:
- The nominated must provide a link back to the person who nominated them.
