Liebster Blog Award (updated)

And updated yet again!!

I know this is from a while back – but I do want to follow through, and I have a few blogs that I would like to pass this award onto as well.

The rules are:
1) Post eleven facts about yourself

(I do not think you really want to know that much about me, right?  I will post a few)
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for people you’ve nominated
3) Choose eleven people to give this award to (with fewer than 200 followers) and link them in your post

(I have 8 blogs to give the award to)
4) Go to their page and tell them
5) Remember, no tag backs

(Seriously?  Do they really want this to seem like a blog version of a chain letter???)

Facts about Brooklinmommy:

I have happily married to my hubby, who I met over Lavalife.com (when it was still embarrassing to date people you meet online)

I have an adorable, yet going through a rebellious stage – 5 year old son.  Almost 5 actually – November 29th is the big B-Day!

I also have a super cute daughter who is 10 months old.  She is at the age where she is doing silly things – like trying to stand on her head – because she like when people laugh 🙂  And she just got her first tooth a few days ago.

Currently, I am a Stay At Home Mom , but will be starting up a business where I go to little girls birthday parties and do their nails.

I live in Ontario, Canada

That is all I can think of…without getting too personal 🙂

And for those blogs …I should also point out there is no obligation to continue this award. If this is not your thing, don’t worry.  

The only thing I would love to see, is your answers to the questions :)

And the questions I would like for them to answer are:

 Questions from Mommy Loves Nail Polish
1. Beer, wine or mix drink
2. Snow or Sun
3. Dogs or Cats
3.   If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass on to your children, what would it be?
4. Which is your favorite genre of movies? (Comedy/Romance/Suspense/Action/Horror)
5. If given a chance to skip work or school for a day, how would you spend the entire day?
6. Which animal would you want to be? Why?
7. What was your favorite food when you were a child?
8. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
9. What is your favorite candy bar?
10. Is there one thing you still won’t tell your parents you have done?
11. How would your friend describe you to someone who has never seen you?

As I was thinking about the Sunshine Award from Polish Alcoholic, I realized she had tagged me a while back for the Liebster Award as well.

It got me thinking why I did not follow through with the rules or requirements for this award.  I think it is because the original rules (nothing to do with the amazing Polish Alcoholic) seem a little like a chain letter or tagging game.

In my research (yeah, yeah…just a google search :))……. in its variations,  the Liebster Award rules have been asking to choose, from as low as 3 bloggers, to as high as 16.

So, while I think these awards are a lot of fun, and a great way to help out fellow bloggers….I cannot bring myself to give this to blogs I do not think are deserving…or maybe, I have have too many blogs I want to acknowledge.

And for the blogs I will be awarding…I should also point out there is no obligation to continue this award. If this is not your thing, don’t worry.

I am taking this same idea with the Sunshine Award as well.  There are quite a few blogs I feel are deserving, but do not feel obligated to continue.

(Polish Alcoholic….please don’t be mad!! )

How cool!  Polish Alcoholic   has tagged my blog for a Liebster Blog Award ! Thank you 🙂

I was thrilled to see her message, telling me.  As I am new to the world of blogging, I actually had to look up what it was, I was being nominated for… LOL.

Once I figured it out, I was even happier!

What is the “Liebster Blog Award?”

2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for people you’ve nominated
3) Choose eleven people to give this award to (with fewer than 200 followers) and link them in your post

    Wow! Thank-you so much for the nomination, I’ll get my thinking cap on.
    I’ve checked out the other ladies blogs, despite the chain letterishness ths is a good way to spread the love.

  7. These tag things are like busses, you see none for ages then they all come at once 🙂
