So my little storage house of my written ramblings has been nominated for a Liebster Award!?!?!?
I had never heard of this award so naturally I looked into what I was getting myself into. The origins of the award, seem to clouded in mystery as the original blog has disappeared in thousands of awards winning blog posts around the the Internet. After some googling I found this blog which give the best explanation that I have seen to date. There is no money and it isn’t prestigious in that there is some committee sitting somewhere hand them out as the Liebster award is just a pay it forward award for blogs that you like but it is a way get some traffic (in theory)
As for the award itself it comes with some stipulations:
1) Thank the presenting blogger by linking back to their blog.
2) Answer the 11 questions that you presenter asks in their nomination.
3) Select 11 other blogs with 200 followers or less to pay the award forward. Post a comment on their blog informing them of their nomination.
4) Ask 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5) No renominating individuals
So down to business
