Liebster Award

Yay! I got nominated for an award! Well, more like kindly recommended on my friend Jaymie's wonderful blog, Snacks for Max.  Before you read this post, you should look at her blog because Max is adorable and she's a WONDERFUL writer.

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers! When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you. Then, recommend other blogs.

All of this seems easy but it took me a while. Despite keeping a blog about myself, I'm not that interesting. Here we go:

11 Random Facts About Me:
  1. I own two wonderful dogs but still like cats better.
  2. I'm really really good at online poker. You know, the kind without real money.
  3. I read at least three books at one time - making it hard to finish any of them.
  4. I write horror fiction. My writing scares me sometimes. A good thing?
  5. I spent months of my life as a half-elf on Monday nights. Let's hear it for DnD. Right? Anyone?
  6. I currently belong to three book clubs.
  7. I wanted to major in journalism since I was a kid. And, I did. Ernie Pyle School of Journalism!
  8. Being the editor of my high school newspaper was one of the most fun things I ever did.
  9. My favorite kind of books are the ones that make me unable to sleep at night. I've spent many nights staring at my bedroom door waiting for the murderer to arrive.
  10. I wrote a book of poems in high school. No one has read it but me.
  11. Investigation Discovery is my favorite channel. I sometimes think I could really be a detective -- then I laugh.
