Tsk Tsk Bloggy To-Do

The Liebert.

The Zero to Hero.

Items on my bloggy to-do list, haunting my days and my nights. Keeping me awake…tossing…turning…rolling on my bed in the wee hours then staring back up at me from my coffee cup come morning.

Well okay, not really.

But there is this slight little pressure between my shoulder blades. That’s what happens to a wanna-be Type A when crucial bloggy tasks such as these remain undone.

So this is what I’m gonna do.

I’m going to follow along on the Zero to Hero only as I can. I’m kinda happy with how this thing is shaking out so far. I’m not out to have hundreds of followers. Heck, truth be known, I’m just happy to see real, live people who are not spammers down on my sweet little visitor’s list. Seriously.  Give me a few writers, a few Mamas, some folks who love Jesus too, add my high school English teacher into the mix and BAM, I’m in bloggy Heaven. What more’s a gal need?

So I’ll just poke along the Z2H path as I can but really, having this pretty little corner to tuck my writing into is the perfect amount of fun for now. Having a few friends and some new blog pals actually read it…that there is just yummy icing.

Now. Liebert.

Liebert, Liebert, Liebert.

What am I gonna do about you Liebert?

I’ve been doing some research.

There are two camps. People who LOVE blog awards. People who {{squeallll}} in delight when someone lays one on their blog. That’s what I did. Squeeeall. Like it was the Emmys squeal.

Not everyone squeals. There there are folks who are polite and gracious and kind with their words and say: Yeah. Thanks. But NO thanks!

And I kinda get that a little…there’s a few stips to this award thingy.

So what’s a new-to-blogging gal to do? Especially when she doesn’t really have many blog friends yet, and those she does either 1) have thousands of followers (literally thousands), 2) have already been hit with at least 8 Liebert nominations and are working their way through the legwork or 3) have sweetly and respectfully tucked and rolled their way out of a dozen nominations in their comment log?

Really. What’s a gal to do?

This is what this gal is gonna do:

I’m going to nominate two of the blogs I’ve read that do not fall into one of those three abovementioned criteria and call it good. I have read some uh-may-zing blogs…and I know there are gajillions more here on the Word Press. I just haven’t been able to explore that many yet. My reader list is small and I’m kinda slow, so rather than let the slow take the lead, I’ll let the small go first 🙂

Here’s my two. I hope I don’t kicked off Word Press for not following the rules. I especially hope I won’t have to give my purty and shiny OscarImeanLiebert back.

Without further ado, I nominate:

Rachel over at At the Corner of 14th and Oak. She’s got an adorable little blog, all full of nostalgia and history, which I totally dig and she talks about seeking and searching, all in an open, honest way, which I also totally dig.

Heidi over at His Will, His Way. She’s got a great thing going and honors the Lord with her precious new blog. Love it.

So gals, here’s how it goes:


The rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.

2. You must answer the 10 questions given to you by the nominee before you.

3. You must nominate 10 of your favorite blogs with fewer than 200 followers and notify them of their nomination.

4. You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

Here are my ten questions for my not-quite ten bloggers:

1) What made you decide to start your blog?

2) What are your goals for your blog?

3) If you are a writer? An artist? A blogger? All of the above?…How much of your life to you devote to these talents?

4) If you were able to visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?

5) Dogs or cats?

6) Introvert or extrovert?

7) City or country?

8) Write then post, edit a little before hitting enter or obsess over a piece for days before any eyes see it?

9) Summer or winter?

10) What’s your biggest blogging/writing/online challenge?

Phew. That was kinda hard.

Now I’m off to let them know I’ve nominated them.

And maybe I’ll finally get a good night’s sleep tonight.

    I’m glad that you are going to keep on being true to your ownself and blog as you want to blog. I fall into camp 3 – I blog for me but delighted others want to read my wanderings and admire my crafting stuff.
