The rules for the award vary. Some bloggers ask for a list of questions or random facts to be answered and some just post their nominees."
- Thank the one who nominated you by linking back.
- List 11 random facts about yourself/your blog.
- Nominate five blogs with less than 200 followers.
- Let the nominees know by leaving a comment at their sites.
- Add the award image to your site (optional).
as Julia Sugarbaker said in Designing Women:
"...we're proud of our crazy people. We don't hide them up in the attic. We bring 'em right down to the living room and show 'em off. ...no one in the South ever asks if you have crazy people in your family. They just ask what side they're on." Like Julia, mine are on both sides.
Warning that it could be a bit complicated she posted step-by-step instructions for how to use the system. First go to this website. "Then under "Online mapping with Cook Viewer" click on "Cook Viewer Mapping Application". Scroll down when it will let you and click on "Accept" (of course after you read all their rules, etc.). On the next screen that appears, type in the address. I typed 3918 W. Monroe. For the city, I typed Chicago. Click on Search. A new box will appear that shows a bunch of information about the property. Make sure it has the same address. Your property is 99 years old for instance. Make sure you jot down the Parcel Pin number as it can be helpful to get other information from Cook County on this property." ". . .Look down in that second box on the right and click on PHOTO and there you have it! Exciting, huh???"
