The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to bloggers that have less than 200 subscribers. It's a way to recognize the hard work and effort of new bloggers, or perhaps those that could use some help reaching a bigger audience. I fit into both categories because I have been blogging for less than a year and still have a lot to learn, as well as could use more followers. I have found blogging to be a journey, and this award makes the journey sweeter.

Answers to the Questions from my nominator:
In 10 words or less, what's your blog about? Anything and everything pets.
Which post of yours are you most proud of? A Gift from Alpacas
What made you decide to start blogging? I was guided and encouraged by my friend and social media guru, Sue Kerr. She felt I had a lot to share.
What demographics do you envision your audience to be? Pet lovers of all kinds.
What writers, characters, shows, films, etc. inspire your writing style? None so far. I am not sure I have found my style yet. I am still exploring, growing and learning.
Who do you envision as your target audience? The same as my demographics.
Is your blog exactly as it envisioned when you started, and if not how and why has it changed? I didn't have a vision when I started. I tend to charge right in. It has been more of a journey and learning what works and what doesn't.
Do you do any research for your posts, or do you write from what you know? It depends upon the topic. Some posts are directy from experiences we have with our clients. Other posts are educational, and I often consult with specialists for those.
Ever been hit with a bout of writer's block? If so, what's your go-to to break it? I often have writer's block. For me I need to go someplace where there are no electronic distractions, generally a place engulfed in nature. Other times, spending time with an animal will get me jump started.
When it comes to blogging compared to your life outside the internet, does life imitate art, art imitate life, or some of each? It is some of each. I learn from my posts and they affect my life, and I learn from my life and share it in my posts.
