The Liebster Award - Author Elizabeth Eckert

The Liebster Award


I am beyond excited to say that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award for 2017! What a joy!

On top of feeling honored, I am also delighted that I am able to return the favor and nominate other deserving bloggers for this award!

To start, I would like to personally thank Elissa Mowery, from, an inspirational and new blogger sure to have many followers.

The Liebster Award 2017 is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. As part of the nomination for the Liebster award, I am able to tell you about one of my favorite blogs. This blog has a special meaning for me as I have a child who has very low vision. High school is tough, there is no doubt about it. Imagine attending school with the worries of the future on your shoulders and you cannot see your textbooks, find your classroom, navigate the school or recognize the hundreds of students around you!

The Paths to Literacy blog focuses on information, adaptations and modifications for the school and parents to make the school life of a student with blindness or low vision much easier. The visual accessories and app’s used are nothing short of amazing and personally, I know my Son is able to learn with the help of technology and many other supports that are discussed by the Paths to Literacy. I will continue to follow this blog to support my Son and many children I am fortunate to work with.

Now you get to learn a little about me! I hope by learning about me and I learning about you, we can feel a comradery in the crazy world of blogging/writing 🙂
