Recently, I received my first blog award.
Billie of willeke73.wordpress.com nominated me for the Liebster award (Thank you kindly).
The Liebster award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
But what is a Liebster? It seems the award started in Germany sometime in late 2010. The best clarification I have been able to find is by Eric Jackson; who writes, “At the core, blogging is all about getting the word out. Rubbing elbows with your peers is a great way to do that. The best part about the Liebster, is that there is no award. It is a matter of networking”.
Basically, if you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Liebster award. It is up to you if you want to accept it and/or pass it on. Your nominations should be blogs that you read or follow regularly; bloggers that you consider to be excellent.
You’ll probably notice that my response does not strictly adhere to the award rules, but I’ve had to make amendments to match my abilities at this time.
