The Liebster Award is an award that can be found only on the internet which is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The first case of the award goes as far back as 2011. The German word Liebster means: sweetest, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. The award is a way of enhancing the discoveries of blogs, connecting and supporting the blogging community.
Chris is “An organized driven and passionate Christian blogger, economist, web developer and graphic artist.” I have really enjoyed getting to know Chris via the variety of posts on Varsity Experience.
Questions from Varsity Experience:
(a). Have you received Jesus as your Savior? – Yes, in my early teens.
(b). Do you speak to people about Jesus everyday? – Yes, via my blog and other social media platforms. Other than that I try to live out my faith in all areas of my life.
(c). Which walks of life is yours? I am not sure what this question is asking.
(d). What is your vision? Hmm…I don’t have a firm vision at the moment. I just want to be who God calls me to be in all situations.
(e). What are the steps you take to actualize your vision? Prayer & Bible Study
(f). What is blogging? From Dictionary.com a blog is “a website containing a writer’s or group of writers’ own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other websites.” But to me it is much more. It is a collection of my writing and the writing of other bloggers that I feel will impact my readers. It is my life, written in little snippets.
(g). How many books have you read about blogging? None.
(h). Do you apply common sense or special knowledge approach to blogging? I am not sure how to answer that. I just write when I feel inspired to do so.
(I). Who is your blogging mentor and why do you choose the blogger? I don’t have a blogging mentor. Is that a thing?
(k). How many books have you read about marriage, finance and child bearing? Depends on what phase of life that I am in. My kids are grown & I have been married over 25 years.
