Willow Scottling, author of Willow’s Corner, nominated me for the Liebster Award on Jan 16th, 2014. It has taken me a long time to accept the award, but this does not reflect any lack of gratitude on my part. Thank you, Willow, for this honor 🙂
If nominated, and you choose to accept my nomination of your blog and continue with the Liebster award process – here are the rules:
- Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
- Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
- Answer eleven (11) questions about yourself, these will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
- Provide eleven (11) random facts about yourself.
- Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
- Create a new list of questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer.
- List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
- Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that you nominated for the Liebster award and give a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it.
