I’ve being planning to make this post for a while, but (happily) work is not giving any time off! *Uff* Nevertheless, time has finally come!
I was completaly thrilled to know that I was nominated for a new blogs/small blogs Award. The Liebster Award!
The Liebster Award is an online award only, and is here to make new small blogs biggerby crossing its audience with other blogs’. It is also very practical, because one is awarded only by being simply nominated to it! You are nominated to the Liebster if a blog who has also been nominated thinks you are a good blog to follow and should have your word spread all over.
Since it’s online, you can imagine its rules have changed through time, but they remain basically these:
If you receive a Liebster Award (and choose to accept it – which is only going to make your blog some good) you should:
1. Make a celebratory post (such as this you are reading) with the Liebster bagde and these rules on it
2. On this post thank and link the lovely blog who nominated you and recommend it because you probably think they are worth it! (why would you ever not do that?!). Also follow the blog (but you probably already do)
3. Answer the questions your nominator listed on your nomination post
4. Choose 5 or 11 or 20 other new blogs (up to ~300 followers) to nominate for the Liebster and let them know about it by commenting one of their posts
5. Propose them a list of 11 questions they should answer on their response celebratory post
Also, why not checking out the other nominated blogs? you you probably like them too! It’s a nice way to keep discovering new blogs and bloggers who really deserve our attention ❤
I feel like the most blessed person right now because I was nominated by two sweethearts. First I was nominated by a fierce, brave and awesome *VIKING*, Laís, from The Diabetic Viking. Later, the dearest naammekyarakhahai also named me. Both of their blogs are great in totally different areas, while my unstoppable viking friend talks more about her experiences on Scandinavian lands, my talented positive friend shows her art and crafts works (nail art, quilling earings…)
I’m going to anwer both of their questions here =)
