From Oenophilogical Mit Liebe: Liebster Award Noms

OK.  So it took me more than a day to get these up!  Hopefully you were humming the Carly Simon tune “Anticipation” [a great song] while you waited.  If anyone was waiting – LOL.

Playing “Telephone”

As I mentioned in my previous post, I did some looking around to inform myself about the Liebster Award.  What I found was that a nominee was originally supposed to nominate 3-5 others for the award who had fewer than 3000 followers each.   What?!  I feel like I’m playing that old game “Telephone” where you whisper something to one person at the end of a line and see what comes out at the other end.  It’s never what you started out with.  Thus, there are folks now nominating 11 blogs each with 200 or fewer followers and asking them 11 questions.  That was some game of Telephone!!

Given that I like sticking to the basics [and I don’t believe I could think up 11 interesting questions for my nominees to answer], I am going to revert to what appears to be the original rules.  I have to credit Sopphey Says for her research into the Awards.  You can find her post on this topic HERE.  The post she cites – the earliest she could find – is HIER at a German blog called Bird of Paradise.

Doing My Part

The answers to the questions I was asked and recognition of my nominating blog can be found in my previous post by clicking ICI.

Questions For The Nominees

1.  What was your favorite kids’ TV show as a child?

2.  What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?

3.  If you had to choose between them, would you listen to waves or birdsong ?

4.  How many umbrellas do you own?

5.  If you could learn 3 new languages in a day, what would they be and why?

The Nominees

labellestudio — all things beauty-full [from a pastoral locale in northern Bavaria]
Wine Serf —  whose goal is to “look at wine from the bottom up – the $15 range”
Whine & Cheers for Wine — the wine experience and everything that comes along with it
365x24x17 —  a serendipitous photo blog w/ 1 of 2 people taking a pic at 5 p.m. every day of the year
Perth Wine Enthusiast — I think that title says it all!

Drop by these blogs, check them out, and leave a congrats or two for the good and interesting work they’re doing.   And, once again, I have to thank Winebbler for nominating me.  You should check out what she’s doing, too!

Epilogue:  There were a number of blogs I contemplated nominating who had already been nominated.  In the spirit of spreading the love around, I tried my best to look at only blogs that – due to some egregious oversight – had not yet been nominated.

  1. I don´t know what to say… Thank you so much for this nomination. I am deeply touched that someone would think my blog should be considered for this kind of distinction.
