Paying It Forward


The time has come for the Grand Finale of my first Liebster Award participation.  But, I have a problem with one of the rules.  I have several blogs that I would like to nominate, because I thoroughly enjoy them and I believe others would also, yet they might have more than 200 followers.  Many don’t even have a follower count listed on their blog at all.  I understand that this is a pay it forward kind of deal, a way to help our fellow bloggers get out there into the blogosphere, to get their name and niche noticed by the general population – but 10 of them?

Being more of a beginner, myself, I’m afraid I just don’t know of 10 blogs with under 200 followers.  So, I’m switching things up a bit and maybe this will get me banned from the Liebster Award ceremonies quicker than Seth MacFarlane was banned from ever hosting the Oscars again, but I don’t really care.  So, without further ado, here are my 10 nominees and their loaded questions:

1. Rose @ Rose Writes (aka RoseRedStories)

2. Latashia @ Writeofmind

3. Mark @ Funny Sweet Chocolate: Essays

4. Chris @ Chrisnelson61

5. Doobster @ Mindful Digressions

6. Eli @ Eli Glassman

7. Sue @ I Write, Therefore I Am

8. Jodie @ Jodie Llewellyn

9. Rob @ Rob’s Surf Report

10. Vic @ Vic Briggs

I’m sure a few of these have already been nominated before, so this is just my way of saying: whether you accept or not, I like your blog and appreciate your personal creativity, thank you for being an inspiration!  Now, answer these questions or something bad will happen – oh, I guess it’s not that kind of chain letter… sorry. 🙂

Q#1: Who or what has been the biggest inspiration in your creative realm?

Q#2: What was the first classic you ever recall reading?

Q#3: What kind of films do you prefer?

Q#4: Who’s your favorite superhero?

Q#5: Who’s your favorite villain (come on, we all have at least one…)

Q#6: If you could delegate one of your least favorite responsibilities, what would it be?

Q#7: If you could change the flavor of any food or drink, which one would it be and why?

Q#8: Name one thing you’ve always wished you could learn to do, but could never find the right opportunity.

Q#9: Name the first place in the whole world you would go, if you had no cares about time or expenses.

Q#10: (If you enjoy the theater) What is your favorite play, musical or show?  Which would you like to see that you haven’t?

  2. It’s raining Liebsters, hallelujah! Cue the electronic beats, N-tsz N-tsz N-tsz N-tsz! (first waving hands in air, then transitioning to a sequence of robot/worm/chicken dance)

    But hey, seriously – like I told Sheri Edwards, I’ve got an idea for answering the questions, and so look out for the pingbacks – I’m going to try to hit one a day as a post. Congratulations on the award, and thanks for the nomination; it’s readers like you that make blogging 100% worthwhile. 🙂


    1. Ha, that’s my favorite club dance! 🙂 I’m looking forward to your posts and thanks, Rob!


  3. Sooo honored Melody- thank you so very much.! OK here are my answers:

    Q1:- Greatest inspiration – Ania Ahlborn-the author of Seed. Reading that book (which originally was an Indie) took me to those places I love to explore: dark, creepy, psychologically unsound. And then Amazon picked it up! That inspired me. It caused me to see that there is a market for Horror/Thrillers- the kind of stories I love to write.

    Q2-First classic- Tale of Two Cities

    Q3-I prefer indie films- I love films by IFC.

    Q4- Favorite Super Hero- Iron Man

    Q5- Favorite Villian- Walter White -(Breaking Bad)- come on!

    Q6- Ironing clothes- hate it (don’t tell my hubby)

    Q7-I love food-but I don’t get bean sprouts- wish they were, I don’t.know, uh…seasoned.

    Q8- Fencing (fighting with swords)

    Q9- Wow- first place would be London- I think it would be a great place to write.
    Q10- I loved Chicago, Wicked and Spiderman. Next show I plan to see is A Night With Janis Joplin- I’ve always loved her voice.

    Thanks again !!!
