I was recently awarded the Liebster Award by The Starving Artist, thank you by the way! "What is the Liebster Award you ask?" It’s an award for new bloggers who have under 200 followers.
Once the award is accepted, according to WordingWell I have to:
- Post the award on your blog.
- Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
- Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
- Answer 10 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 10 questions.
So here goes, the questions that were posted to me:
- Why and how long ago did you start blogging? I wanted something to do during the day while my oldest was working on his schoolwork.I've been blogging since February 2014.

- Is there something you learned late in your blog journey that you wished you knew before? I wished I knew how much hard work it was going to take, I thought I could just write, but no there are plug-ins, widgets, and social media networks that you have to keep up with as well.
- What is your favorite pastime other than blogging? My favorite pastime other than blogging is playing games like Farmville 2 and Family Guy on my Ipad.

- Where does your blog inspiration come from? My blog inspirations come from my family; my boys. There is always something going on when you have two growing boys in the house, ha!
- What post have you written are you most proud of? I'm most proud of my Homeschooling Decided post, I finally decided to homeschool and that post describes that proud moment when I realize what I want to do.
