Liebster Award Nomination

Sunday, October 19, 2014
Well, I got nominated by Katie of Living the First Grade Dream for a...wait for it...wait for it...Liebster Award!!! The Liebster Award is an award for new bloggers that have potential and content and also have less than 200 followers.
Thanks Katie for your nomination, I feel blessed that I am in a great group of blogging buddies. As part of being nominated, I will answer eleven questions about this nomination and also nominate eleven bloggers that have less than 200 followers.

1. Why and How Long Did You Start Blogging?
I started blogging in November 2012, but I took a big break from it after only one post. However, something miraculous brought me back into the blogging world in August 2013 and I have not stopped blogging since. I blogged because I love reading other bloggers and what their personalities are since I jumped back into the blogging game. Also, with my previous experiences of being a teacher's aide and also being a substitute teacher along with being a Children's Church helper is what made this blog started to work.

2. What one word sums up the heart of your blog and why?
The one word that sums up my blog would have to be compassion. I am very compassionate to what I love to do and that is to be a teacher and have my own classroom one day. One of the things that is more excitable and also that would be fitting in with the word would have to be that when I wanted to become a teacher, I wanted to find what words would describe me when I do become one, and of course I picked this word as one of my favorite words to describe me. Also, being a Christian made me felt compassionate towards others and that includes children.

3. Is there something you learned late in your blog journey you wished you knew before?

I learned many tips and tricks about blogging when I entered into it soon, but the biggest thing that I learned late was that my blog needs to match my personality. I am an out-going 24 year old and I am blessed that I am taking the next steps of becoming a teacher so I made my blog suitable for other readers to see what is my personality.

4.What is your favorite past time other than blogging? 

My favorite past time other than blogging would have to be singing and also participating in church activities. I did not tell anyone this, but I used to be in the choir at my high school for one year and also in college for one year. I am currently in my church choir at church. I also love to participate in church activities that I enjoy and it is all for God. I am currently thinking about going on a Peru mission trip in 2015. 

5.How many hours per week do you dedicate to your blog?

I did not spend many hours like I should blogging and so I made a pact that I would spend at least three hours a week blogging. I need to also focus more on the blogging aspect so I could attract my readers more. 

6. What category of blog posts do you enjoy the most?

I enjoy talking about classroom organization and also about reading since I am more certified in that area. I love talking about the reading sense of school so that the children would learn more. I also enjoy linky parties that capture the readers' attention and also what they could attract when they would share what they know with other teacher bloggers. 

7.Where does your blog inspiration come from?

My blogging inspiration came from being a teacher's aide and also a substitute teacher that would warm me inside. The children and being in a school experience are very inspirational for me to want one day when I am in my own room. I love doing what I am doing, not for the money, but for the children and being able to change their lives soon. 

8.  Which post that you've written are you most proud of?

I remember writing about the reading tips and tricks in the classroom (here). I remember writing about what other teachers gave me advice on about reading and what I need to be more aware of. Also, I love that we are doing this during Dr. Seuss week and it is related to reading which is one of my favorite subjects in school.

9.Is there any post you've been planning to do but have been postponing it for awhile now?

Well, I have a lot of ideas, but I always wanted to do a teacher advice linky party because I wanted to share what advice that my teacher gave me when I was completing field experience. I really think that the best advice is used to our good advantage. 

10. What is your favorite aspect of blogging?

There is actually an answer to that because my favorite aspect is being able to share my ideas for the classroom with my blogging buddies. I have never attended a blogger meet-up( that would change soon) and I did not get to go to Vegas this past summer, but I love making new friends, even though it is only online and through blogging and other shared interests like teaching.

11. Which recipe, project, or idea on my blog would you be most likely to try yourself?

I would love to try Katie's Beginning Letter Sound Activity with the children because it is a good way for them to see what each beginning sound sounds like in a word. Also, I would love to try a crockpot recipe but it is supposed to be one thing.
