The other day, fellow blogger Mike Coville of “Random Thoughts,” nominated my blog for the LIEBSTER AWARD (awarded to up-and-coming bloggers). Thank you so much, Mike!! Unfortunately, however, the LIEBSTER is only awarded to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers and I just hit the 200 hundred mark about three days ago (yay! and, now, boo, at the same time).
At any rate, though I know I’m no longer eligible for the LIEBSTER, I’m still very flattered to be nominated, and will go ahead and answer Mike’s chosen questions.
