So just when I thought I was starting to understand this blog business, here comes a Liebster Award. I was nominated by George from George’s Books and Bits. I wasn’t sure what this was until I read about it. Thanks George for the nomination.
What is the Liebster Award?
To quote my new pal, George:
“The Liebster Award is passed on by bloggers to new bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and to support the blogs that you like by sharing them with your readers.
These are the rules of the award:
Recipients of the Liebster Award must:
1.List 11 Random Facts about you
2.Answer the questions that were asked of you (By the blogger that nominated you)
3.Nominate 11 other blogs for the Liebster Blog Award and Link to their Blogs
4.Notify the bloggers of their award.
5.Ask the award winners 11 questions to answer once they accept the award”
Basically, it’s to keep new bloggers blogging and to offer encouragement and more followers.
