Liebster Award Nominee

I’ve been nominated two times for a Liebster Award! Thank you for the blog love!

So what is the Liebster award? I didn’t win a million dollars sadly, but the Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to recognize other up-and-coming bloggers. (By the way, ‘liebster’ is a German word meaning ‘dearest’).

I was first nominated by Jade from Mama Love Diaries and again by Courtney from The Crunchy Delinquent.

So how do you accept a Liebster nomination? Simple, you create a post containing the following information:

  • Link Back to the blog that nominated you.
  • Nominate 5 or more bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
  • Answer Questions posted by you from your nominator.
  • Share 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Create 11 Questions for your nominees to answer.
  • Contact your nominees and let them know you’ve nominated them.
