Blog Love Times FOUR! Another Liebster, more great blogs.

February 4, 2012

This is like being in a warm rainshower of joy these days, with all the awards that have been coming my way.

My gratitude goes to Kirsten W. Larson at Creating Curious Kids for presenting me with the Liebster Blog Award. Thanks so much, Kirsten.

When you click on “read more” you’ll learn five things about me that you’d likely never even thought to wonder about, and you’ll have a chance to meet five worthy bloggers as I pass the award along.

First a bit about the Liebster Blog Award:

“Liebster is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favorite. The idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to create new connections and bring attention to these wonderful blogs!”
* * *
The requirements are simple: Add the award to your blog (simply save the logo above to your desktop, then add it to your blog). Thank the giver with a link back to them. Pass the award along to five other bloggers, and let them know they’ve been given an award by leaving a comment on their blog. Hope that your followers will spread the love to the blogs you’ve spotlighted.

 

Now, five exceedingly random things about me.

1. Although I’m right-handed, I do most things that require skill and/or strength with my left hand (things such as opening jars, or opening milk cartons, for example).

2. When shopping for clothes, I am invariably and irresistibly drawn to the shiny, the sparkly and the glamorous. Unfortunately, my lifestyle is not one that calls for many clothes of this sort.

3. When I particularly like a book or a movie, I read/watch it so many times that I can quote whole sections.

4. Much to the consternation of many of my friends (and the flat-out disgust of a few) , I absolutely love puns.

5. When I was taking typing in high school, I vowed I would never earn my living typing. Guess what I’ve done in nearly all the jobs I’ve had over the years? I also vowed I’d never be a librarian. Although not an actual librarian, guess where I worked for 23 years of my life? 😉

  1. I have always thought ambidexterity a useful skill! Now, number 2 I would never have guessed. I think LASCBWI could cope with some glam!!

    1. One day, for some reason, I decided to try opening a milk carton with my right hand and it was unbelievably awkward and difficult! I’d never thought about it before.

      I assure you there are sequins and sparkles and satin in my closet — I hope the theme of this year’s LA SCBWI Saturday night party lets me show some of it off!

  2. I think No. 2 is great. You want your outside to shine like your inside. 🙂 Lots of fun tidbits. Typing is an essential skill. I actually worry about kids today, because schools are forcing them to work on keyboards early. My sister works with children and she says they express frustration that the keyboard letters aren’t in order of the alphabet. Of course, they don’t get any keyboard training until much later in their elementary school. By then, they have weird keyboard habits. Oh, I digress…. Congrats on the award.

  3. Congratulations! How wonderful to have the recognition times 4! I absolutely love number 2, everyone needs a little glam in their lives.

  4. Beth!! Congratulations!!!!!

    ::applauds wildly::

    TOTALLY DeserVed!

    Ahhh…..puns…gotta love’m.

    And being ambidextrous is brilliant!

    (sorry for not being around….I’ve been fighting copyright messes and deleting all my blogs, etc.)

    I thought you were on FB??? Are you? Why do I think I saw a FB link here at some point? I’m there now. Would friend you.

    1. Robin! Thank you so much.

      Sorry you’ve been having copyright hassles. *hugs*)

      I’m on FB, there was a link on my old blog. I’m there as Beth Stilborn, should be fairly easy to find. Please do friend me!

  5. Ha Ha! I took typing in high school and swore the same thing. Guess what I’ve been doing for 40 years! Except now we are blogging, or using the keyboard, or writing. 🙂 Yeah, we are similar with movies. But, I would never have guessed #2. 🙂

  6. Hey Beth, big congrats and thank you! I made sure to care for mine well…you can see on my new post who I passed it along to and I did an illustration up for it too. Lots of fun! Thanks again!
