And I also just found out now (how could I miss that??) that Linda from Expat Eye on Latvia nominated me for the Super Sweet Blogger Award (and The Liebster Award, but since I’ve already been nominated, I’ll skip that one and consider it done). Thank you so much!
I had never heard of the Family Award before, but I think it is a lovely way to let your fellow bloggers know you consider them “cyber family” how Sherri put it. Living in Mexico definitely teaches you how to bend the rules a little, and that’s what I am going to do by making a little award hodgepodge.
THE SUPER SWEET RULES:
1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated you.
2. Answer 5 Super Sweet questions.
3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging Award in your blog post.
4. Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other deserving bloggers
5. Notify your Super Sweet nominees on their blog
THE SUPER SWEET QUESTIONS:
Q: Cookies or Cake?
A: Cake. But when I am finished with the cake, I can still go for cookies. In fact, I once went on a cookie diet: I was staying with a host family in Finland and the food was very different for me for we were having either milk soup with pearl barley or milk soup with rice and on Sundays a super salty fish casserole. So I bought myself cookies (“Muumi Keksi” – my favourites!) and had about 3 packages each day. Nevertheless, I came home all skin and bones. Maybe I should write a book about the Cookie Diet.
Q: Chocolate or Vanilla?
A: Both, of course. Nothing beats a chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream. Just sayin’…
Q: Favorite sweet treat?
A: An almond croissant from Le Panier in Seattle.
Q: When do you crave sweets the most:
A: With my 5 o’clock tea. Or when I am feeling lonely.
Q: Sweet nickname?
A: Mr. R. calls me Sweety sometimes – can’t get any sweeter than that.
Now, just so you know what The WordPress Family Award is all about, here is a word from Shaun, the creator of this award:
‘This is an award for everyone who is part of the “WordPress Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award.’ Thank you Shaun @ http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/
NOW THE FUN (and the work) starts, the rules are as follows:
1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate 10 others who have positively impacted your WordPress experience.
4. Don’t forget to let your WordPress family members know of your nomination.
5. That’s it! Just pick 10 people that have accepted you as a friend, and spread the love!
So these are my Super Sweet Fellow Bloggers whom I consider my little cyber family:
