Liebster award – answers and nominations

I have got an invitation by purpldragon a while ago to participate in the Liebster award- purpldragon; thank you for this 🙂

I have considered it a bit, while I am not sure why it is called an award, I decided it would be a great opportunity to link some of the bloggers here; I have chosen those who are affected by cancer (please see below).

First; an introduction to the Liebster awards:

According to purpldragon (and I quote) the “Liebster Award is a chain award created by bloggers and passed on from one blogger to another to encourage connections. It is a wonderful, fun way to interact and make friends in the blogging community.”

And again, according to purpldragon (and I quote) ; these are the rules:

1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers, who have less than 200 followers and link them.
4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
5. Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.


For this award, I have chosen the following bloggers, who post about their experiences about cancer.

Cancer has an important part in my life personally and professionally. Learning from cancer patients, caregivers, and advocates through social media has been an incredible experience for me. I have great respect and admiration for those affected by cancer and I believe their “voice” in social media is highly important.

I nominate the following bloggers – I hope they will be okay with the nomination:

1. Celeta’s journey

2.  A Melanoma journey

3.  Going to beat this cancer

4. The cancer chronicles of Julie McG

5. Daddy’s Warrior Princess

6. I am not sick, I just had cancer

7. Steve Dang

8. mylifewithasideofcancer

9. On a Butterfly’s Wings

10.  The Sansone Files

11. Jamie Gilmore

My questions to the nominated bloggers are:

1. How do you feel about connecting to others going through cancer in the social media?

2. Do you think connecting to other cancer patients would be useful in supporting you and them while going through the disease?

3. What are the words, sentences, or questions you think are appropriate to hear from others when they first learn one has cancer?

4. Do you have care-givers?  or Are you a care-giver?

5. What kind of support would you like from cancer-related organizations and the government?
