You might ask.
In short, it is an award that bloggers pass to one another to announce to the world the blogs they think are wonderful. When a blog is nominated for a Liebster there are some rules they are supposed to follow.
First, they must thank the blogger who nominated them.
Then they must answer 10 questions which the nominating blogger has asked.
Then they must nominate other blogs they feel are worthy.
They must then write 10 questions for their nominees to answer and must notify their nominees that they have been nominated.
Here are the questions I received:
1. What do you think about sheep?
I like them very much. I want to emulate them in a spiritual sense. But not in an intellectual sense.
2. Identify your most unloved possession. A Mac laptop
How did you acquire this thing?* I got in online.
3. Why did you think you needed it?*Thought I'd be able to master it and get out from under the heavily-virused (among other downfalls) Windows Empire.
4. How did it disappoint you?* Not for an untreated ADD mind to successfully accomplish. At that moment.
5. What is your favorite gardening tool? Fresh dirt. :)
6. What got you started blogging? I've always known I had a story to tell, and when I discovered the blogosphere, it was a natural step for me. I've been published in a hardcopy magazine once upon a time, but I like this because it's so much more personal.
7. What is the best way to build community? I wish I knew. Having give-aways seems to work for some folks.
8. When was the last time you grew something and produced a yield? last summer I was finally successful at tending to a little porch-garden. The tomatoes we got from that were by far the tastiest things EVER.
9. Did you save seeds from your yield? No. I was given them as little baby plants...:( Now I wonder if I should have? )
10. The last time you entered the wilderness, what brought you there?** My soul needs to be in the wilderness. I feel only half alive while in the concrete jungle, even as small as our current resident city is. Bliss is found in the company of birds, bugs (not including spiders, of course) and the occasional wood nymph. It's easier for me to touch the Almighty Spirit when not surrounded by so much
I look forward to reading all of your responses. I'm glad you are part of the blogging community, especially my little community. Blog on!

As painfully far apart as my opportunities to blog have been lately, I'll have to do this in increments.
Today, I answer the Q's.
Next time I'll send out my nominations. :)
Thanks eversomuch, to my wonderful friend, Barb, Matron and HNIC of
