Liebster Award

I’d like to start off by thanking Kayla Krantz for nominating me for the Liebster Award which is for new and upcoming bloggers! The Liebster Award allows for budding bloggers to recognise each other and help promote the work they have put into their blogs. It is a nice way to discover and connect with other bloggers.

It really is a great feeling to know that someone has enjoyed your blog, especially when you are a newbie like me and still finding your way around the world of blogging.

I’m going to give a quick summary on this from what Kayla had written on her blog.

There are a few rules that go along with the award if you choose to accept it and if you’re like me and were really confused about it at first, let me clarify that a nomination essentially = a win. The nomination is basically an invitation to participate in and accept the Liebster Award and if you choose to do so and make an acceptance post then you have pretty much crowned yourself a winner. congratulations.

~should you choose to accept, the rules are as follows~
1. List 11 facts about yourself
2. Nominate 11 bloggers for the award. Since the point is to recognise rising bloggers, nominees are supposed to have less than 200 followers, although I may grant a little bit of leeway on this one. Sometimes its harder to tell how many followers someone has anyway.
3. Let them know about the nomination (just drop a comment somewhere on their blog)
4. Answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you
5. Ask 11 questions for the new award winners to answer
6. If you feel like being nice, go ahead and thank the person who nominated you. if you don’t feel like being nice, and the words “thank you” are just too much for you to muster, just go ahead and mention who nominated you
So here are 11 random facts about myself:

I haven’t spent as much time as I would have liked to on WordPress so a lot of the blogs I have come across and read have more than 200 followers already. I need to spend some more time on WordPress and find some newbies like me. Once I have found them I promise to nominate them ASAP.
Thank you again Kayla from The Paper Float  for my nomination! I really enjoy your blog too.
Will post my nominee list soon…
