The Liebster Award Tag!!

Hey guys!

I have a bit of a different kind of post for you all today...
The Downtime nominated me for The Liebster Award Challenge in one of her blog posts this past Saturday...

This challenge is, most-simply put, an About Me Q&A including 11 questions provided by the blogger that nominates you. I looked into the Liebster Award Challenge online before answering my questions so that I had a bit more of an idea of what I was going to be posting about. It seems that the idea of the post is a way to help fellow new bloggers become discovered by new readers and to do it in a way where readers, and writers alike, can learn more about you. (Not sure where the number 11 came into all of this, but I like it.)
I LOVE this idea! And I am happy to be a part of it! Thanks so much, TheDowntime for nominating me!
