I never really fancied myself as a writer, especially because my content is centered around information that could be construed as a little dull. Afterall, this blog was created to share strategies around exercise and eating clean, but let’s face it. How much excitement can you really build into barbells and green vegetables? Well it turns out that writing this blog is actually super exciting for me! The fact that I get to write about living a healthy lifestyle is just icing at this point. Little did I know I’d get sprinkles to boot!
In my past 3 months as a blogger, I’ve learned that this form of communication is indeed an art form. I’ve been working hard at improving my skills and delivering relevant and interesting posts for my wonderful audience. A decent portion of that audience is comprised of other bloggers. Some of them I consider mentors because they have a wonderful writing style, or present topics in unexpected ways. CUE THE SPRINKLES Andy, from OUR LIFE IN 3D, is one such excellent blogger who surprised me with a nomination for a Liebster Award! If anything validates a writer, recognition from a peer is honor in the truest form. Andy covers many elements in his writing – being a dad, financial tips and family fitness. His posts are engaging because he invites you to get to know him in a very funny way. I hope to be like him when I grow up and am grateful and thrilled to have received this lovely gesture of kindness.
The Liebster Award is usually given to up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. “Liebster” is a German word meaning “dearest” or “beloved”. Cool, huh? Now in order to accept this award, I’m required to do the following 3 things. Please note that under Andy’s condensed version of the Liebster (thank you for that Andy) the rules have changed a bit:
- Write two things about myself that are true and one thing that is a lie and then you (the readers) have to guess which one is the lie.
- Choose 10 people to award, send them a link to my post, and go to their page and tell them.
- No Tag Backs
So without further ado, here we go!
2 TRUTHS AND A LIE
One of my past jobs was selling dry ice.
- I once stole a huge roll of toilet paper out of a public restroom.
- My husband and I drive matching cars.
Which on is false?
