Unmistakingly American, Joe Buck’s voice emanated rather loudly from the living room while Diane did what everyone else in the San Francisco Bay Area did last Sunday night: watched the San Francisco Giants play game six of The World Series. Alas, I was slaving away in the computer room working on The Liebster Award Post. Yeah, OK, stop laughing. Some old farts still use a computer and mouse while blogging. And early retirees only buy new devices when a faced with an emergency (like a new Apple OS rendering you as obsolete).
Less than 30 days into my first ever attempt at blogging, I received two nominations on the same day for the (coveted?) Liebster Award. For the benefit of my blog-less email followers, the award is given by fellow bloggers to other bloggers as a recognition of excellence. Generally given to new bloggers like me, the rules state nominees can include non-newbies with less than 800 followers. The rules are here. Also designed for promotion of under-appreciated blogs, I noticed a spike in my stats so I guess it works. Thanks to Tim and Joanne of A Note from Abroad and The Tex-Pats of Adventure Pengembara for the nod !! I’m honored and appreciative.
