The Liebster Award

When I saw I have comments to moderate I thought they would be spam. When I saw the one that said I have been nominated for an award I still thought it was spam. Be still, my beating heart! Think this by bloggers award is a great idea :) Thank you Pages from Serendipity for nominating me!

The Rules of the Liebster Award
The Liebster Award is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It is a great way to connect with new bloggers, and to welcome them to the blogosphere. Here are the rules:
1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4. Go to the blogs you nominated and notify them of your nomination.
5. Give your nominees 11 questions to answer.
The Liebster AwardHere are my answers to Pages from Serendipity's questions.
1. What is it that you would have missed if you hadn't started your blog?
Great question! Can't imagine life without my blog, although I have been neglecting the poor thng for life lately. Would have missed the lovely comments from strangers that I can still remember when I think of old posts.

2.How do you connect with other bloggers? And how frequently?
I read blogs of old friends, I get notifications about new posts. I post when I write something new, on blogging networks. I look up the bloggers who like my posts and add them to my network if they're interesting :)

3. When was the last time you wrote a letter to somebody?
I remember writing to a friend in France in 2008?

4. Do you think man will build houses on the moon in the future?
Necessity will lead to that, I guess. Would be fun to bounce around up there though! Sure wish I boomerang as a moonling :)

5. What do you think about this award?
Great idea. Stumbling on interestingness is ironically getting tougher under the avalanche of uselessness, so this stands out.

6. Do you earn through your blog?
Nope. Maybe some cents, but they haven't added up to the amount Google will fork out. Maybe when I'm about to kick the bucket, they'll fill it with coins :-P

7. How do you want to spend the last days of your life?
Do you see how my last answer segues in this question? I swear I didn't read the question before. Serendipity, you live up to thy name :) I want to spend the last days of my life- hope they're not soon- travelling through Europe.

8. How much love and how much hatred is your heart made of?
Lot of love and a little bit of hatred. Just to keep life interesting. Your questions are deep, Serendipity!

9. If you are playing with sand now, what are you building?
Balls. I dunno why, it just popped in my head. How would I make them was my second thought. Wet, was the answer. And now I'll stop because I realise this is getting ickier...

10. What would be the fate of your blog after you die?
Death preoccupies you, Serendipity. It would still be there, I'd like to think, still useful to those who stumble on it, looking for play reviews and other random ravings of mine. Sorry, I HAVE to share this PJ I thought of- I'd ghostwrite it!

11. How are you going to choose your set of 11 bloggers now?
That's the first question that popped in my head. Will check whether that friend I read makes the criteria. Another friend I just remembered has started blogging, so will pick her too. Had come across good blogs recently via work, so will dig some of those up. Look at my networks, do some random hunting...
