Getting Noticed… It’s Nice.


A few days ago, after my morning tea, I  discovered that my blog had been nominated for a Liebster Award! WOW! I jumped up and down and did a Happy Dance. But then I asked myself… What is a Liebster Award? After a little Google search I found that it’s a fun way to get people excited about your stuff and, at the same time, pay it forward. So THANKS to the fair and talented Lily of She thought my stuff was worthy of a shout out!

The Rules:
  • You must link back to the person who nominated you.
  • You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominee.
  • You must pick 11 nominees with under 200 (or 2000 if you want to go with that) followers to answer your questions.
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
  • You must let the people you nominate know they have been nominated.

My answers to Lily’s questions:

  • Favorite movie:  Little Miss Sunshine
  • Song that makes me feel alive:   The Logical Song  by Supertramp
  • If I could live anywhere, where would it be:   Bath, Maine
  • Favorite food:  Greek salad or chocolate cake
  • Favorite word:  serendipity
  • Favorite hobby:  collecting Fire King
  • If I could change my name:  I like my name.
  • Favorite snack:  buffalo chicken wings with blue cheese
  • Favorite class in college:  Editing. I know. I’m weird.
  • Favorite poem: The Red Wheelbarrow, by William Carlos Williams
  • Favorite season:  SPRING!

Here are some noteworthy blogs that I think you’ll really like. Most deal with writing and books while a few focus on travel and cooking. Enjoy!

A writer on the verge of becoming an author hoping to meet others in a similar situation. A mother with a pile of laundry, dishes in the sink and dust bunnies under the wood stove. This can wait. My writing can't.

I grew up in Iowa. Then I fled to Hollywood. Now I'm back in Iowa, a writer, living in a log cabin in the woods. This blog is about this weird life.

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
