Liebster Part 3: Recognition and Questions

(Another shout out and thanks to
Amanda for the award!)
This final part of the Liebster Award is where I get to recognize five up-and-coming blogs and pass on the sweetness of the Liebster Award.   

There are many blogs I know that deserve this award, and if I could give it to each blogger, I would.  But in sticking with the rules, I'm going to have to narrow it to five.  And it sure wasn't easy to do so.  Almost painful, actually.  Thankfully a few that I'd like to recognize have actually already received the Liebster!

On we go with the nominations!
  • Teachers with Attitude by Dianne really makes me smile, cause as a teacher, I can so relate to her classroom capers!
  • Roses are Red by Kylie-Rose is a fellow quote-junkie's blog with lots of great quotes sprinkled throughout!
  • Waking Up by Kashley is the blog of a cyber-friend whose words resonate very much with me. 
  • Strange Little Pearls by Cheryl, who is another quote-fiend like me, is a great read with lots of inspiration in every post! 
  • Storeylines by Barbara gives insight into a sidelined writer, dealing with some extra challenges in life.

Now for the questions!
  1. Why did you start a blog?
  2. What's the one thing you can't live without?
  3. Of what accomplishment are you the proudest?
  4. What book or movie most reflects your life?
  5. What product/TV show from the past would you most like to see return?
  6. What is your favorite dish and what makes it your favorite?
  7. Looking back to a year ago now, did you end up where you thought you would?
  8. If you could jump into any story, what book would you choose and why?
  9. Where did you get the idea for the name of your blog?
  10. What is your favorite memory as a student?
  11. Hit shuffle on your iPod/music device.  What are the first five songs that play?

Finally, the fine print:

    1. So glad you're enjoying the blog list! Check out the blog roll page here too. I know I've found a few new blogs through you :) It was a lot of fun playing along.... and I'm tempted to answer my own questions in another post, just for fun!

  2. Thank you so much - so kind of you! *hugs* I must confess, I have been given this award by another friend, so now I feel doubly recognised! I need to do my end of it - some days the thought of it seems too daunting, but I'm hoping to get caught up soon. I guess you could say I'm working daily on NOT being sidelined!

    Bless you, Violet, for including me!! <3

    1. You are so welcome Barbara! Double recognition, doubly blessed, doubly good! I'll be honest, I split it into multiple days cause the thought of doing it all at once stressed me out. Have fun with it, and hopefully you'll be off the sidelines and in the game sooner rather than later!

  3. Wow...thank you so much, you lovely of lovelies :)

    What a wonderful idea, and it's so amazing of you to nominate me.

    THANK-YOU so much for this (made my day). I will be getting onto this as soon as I can.

    All my LOVE to you ALWAYS xo

    1. You are very welcome my friend! I hope that the smile lasted a while and that you enjoy the award process!

  5. Aw, thank you so much! So very sweet of you. :) I will start working on this right now. :)

    1. Have fun with it Kashley! It was a great distraction for me, and I hope it does the same for you!

  6. Okay, I know you are probably awarded out, but I nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award! Hope you don't mind too much! ;)

    1. Now I'm the speechless one! I am honored! I look forward to posting about this one, now, too! Thank you my friend!
