I won an awesome blog award – shucks guys!

lieber-awardFirst, the Liebster Award – next, world domination!

Ah ha! This is an award passed on by bloggers to new blogs worth reading (blogs with less than 200 followers).

To be honest, it’s a bit like those horrible email chains I used to get – but without the threatening message at the bottom that tells you if you don’t pass the message on to 100 people you’ll be haunted by the ghost of your great-great grandmother for the rest of your life!

So thanks Book Gossips – may the force be with you always.

So, as a recipient of the Liebster Award one must:

  1. List 11 random facts about yourself
  2. Answer 11 questions by the blogger that nominated you
  3. Nominate 11 other blogs for the award and link to them
  4. Notify the bloggers that they are awesome and have won a shiny pink blogging logo
  5. If they want to accept the award, ask them 11 questions to answer

Whoever created this must have had a hard-on for the number 11 and perhaps a little obsessed by that crazy Japanese film The Ring (just to be clear no scary video footage made it into the production of this post).

Facts about me

  1. I cannot count without using my fingers
  2. On Saturday I will be adopting my first pet kitten from an animal shelter
  3. I quit smoking two months ago
  4. I have lived in four different countries in four different continents – but I only speak English
  5. I have written two full length novels, but lost one when my laptop and disks were stolen at a London house party
  6. Hedgehogs rock
  7. Nothing is more sexy to me then a man reading a book with a glass of whiskey propped up in his hand (hint-hint hubby)
  8. I work for a charity promoting women’s rights in Australia and Asia-Pacific
  9. I have five brothers and two sisters. Needless to say, Christmas is interesting
  10. My name is Sabrina – named after Sabrina Duncan, the brainy one in Charlies Angels (thanks Dad)

My answers to questions from the lovely ladies at Book Gossips

  1. What made you create a blog? I was bored, unemployed and had procrastinated about it long enough. The Urban Book Thief said, “Let there be light,” and I had no choice – the blog was born.

  4. Thank you so much, Book Thief! I am honored and delighted! And working on my 11 questions so I can post about the award! 🙂

    • Well, I’m trying to figure it out… I joined twitter about 2 weeks ago and I have 50 followers there now, vs. 27 followers of my actual blog. I do think it helps to promote your blog, and get hits to individual posts via twitter. Also, there is a sense of being part of a larger dialogue of romance readers and writers, and it is pushing me to keep the blog fresh with a new post at least once a week (I wish it could be more!). But it’s a bit of a time suck!
