My new Canadian friend Ellie from Honeysuckle Hollow nominated me for this awesome award! Thank you so much Ellie!!
What is a Liebster award? you ask. Basically, a Liebster Award is given to small bloggers (usually with less than 1,000 followers) by other small bloggers. It’s kind of like paying it forward. It’s where small bloggers give each other recognition (by way of nomination or Thanks) in hopes of gaining more followers by nominating other small bloggers and getting mentioned on their blogs.
Those who are nominated for this award must also follow a few simple rules. These are as follows:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog
- Display the Liebster Award badge on your blog.
- Answer 11 questions about yourself. These are provided by the person who nominated you.
- Share 11 random facts about yourself if you wish. This is optional but fun.
- Nominate 5 or more bloggers with less than a thousand followers who you believe deserve this reward.
- Create a new list of 11 questions for your nominees.
- Notify your nominees.
