I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

The Liebster Award

liebster blog

I want to thank Marnie at www.volunteerfringe.com for nominating me for The Liebster Award.  Blogging is a great way to share our thoughts with others and I feel honoured that my posts are touching other lives.  This award is meant to recognize up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers.

The official rules are:

  • Post 11 facts about yourself
  • Answer the questions of your nominator.
  • Pose 11 new questions.
  • Post a copy of the badge on your blog
  • Nominate 11 other blogs.
  • Notify your selected nominees, and include links to the originating blog, as well as to new recipients.

I’m going to offer 6 facts about myself, ask 6 questions and nominate 5 bloggers.

Here are 6 Facts About Me

  1. I live in Niagara Canada.
  2. I am a wife, mother and grandmother.
  3. I enjoy blogging and sharing my thoughts.
  4. I have 2 dogs (a shepherd mix and a dachshund-terrier)
  5. My favourite place to visit is Nova Scotia.
  6. My favourite campground is the Sandbanks close to Picton, Ontario, Canada.

Marney asked only 3 questions.  Here are my answers:

  1. What cause are you most passionate about?  I am passionate about helping people build confidence and increase their self-esteem, especially children.
  2. Why does that cause matter to you?  I spent most of my life struggling with low esteem and depression which caused numerous problems. I have found ways to build esteem and I want to share my knowledge with others so they can have a better life.
  3. How do you plan to volunteer for that cause this year?   My self-esteem workshops are presented free of charge and I will continue to offer them to local organizations.  My ultimate goal is to have a permanent location where I can offer these workshops to individuals on an ongoing basis. 

Here are my 6 questions:

1. What is your ultimate goal in life?

2. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

3. What inspires you to write?

4. What is your favourite food?

5. What person (dead or alive) has had the biggest positive influence on your life?

6. What would you like to change in your life right now?

Here are My 5 Blogging Nominees who have about 200 or less followers:
