Once you have written your post and published it you then have to:

8. Inform the bloggers whom you’ve nominated for the Liebster award. Remember to give a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!) DONE

  1. I hate the hoop jumping too. But I do see the advantage of introducing others to blogs and writers that should be shared with others.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Yup, I understand. But sometimes you just have to skip the whole hoop thing. 🙂

  2. Elizabeth Scott says:

    All I have to say is how much I love you. Thanks for jumping and I'll go on a cruise with you,

    • Geek Girl says:

      I think I will slip the whole cruise thing given how much they have been in the news lately, in a very negative way. And I love you too my friend. 🙂

  3. findingourwaynow says:

    ROTFL about "I would tell you, but then I would have to kill you". I loved that answer. BTW: thanks for the shout out my friend.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Killing is bad for readership, so I hear. LOL And Your Welcome my friend.

  4. JeriWB says:

    I am drinking some Starbucks as I type this 😉 Just the other day I was thinking about penny candy too when I saw a red gummy fish smashed on the sidewalk. I used to go to Mary's Country Store and load up on those and candy cigarettes back in the day…

    • Geek Girl says:

      Ah yes… the candy cigarettes. I remember those fondly.

  5. namirusso says:

    Ha! I like how you got out of the last one. "all the readers." By the way, we just went to see the giant X-wing fight made entirely of Legos. Talk about geekdom!

    • Geek Girl says:

      I bet the boys were a handful at the exhibit! 🙂

  6. Congrats on yet another award, Cheryl!

    Now, slap yourself for saying dark chocolate is a junk food! It is no such thing! Wait until my book comes out. You will read an entire chapter about the health benefits of dark chocolate. It truly is a power food if you are eating good quality dark chocolate of at least 70% cocoa. Now … go apologize to your chocolate.

    • Geek Girl says:

      I love you Doreen! My secret no longer has to stay in the shadows! 🙂

  7. patweber says:

    I have this visual – you are watering your houseplants, eating your dark chocolate and mistakenly, pouring your Starbucks into their soil while drinking their water.

    Congratulations Cheryl! Fun post.

    • Geek Girl says:

      I am not quite sure how to take that comment, but I choose to laugh. 🙂 You may very well have hit on why my house plants always die. LOL
