Yea! I have been nominated for the Liebster Award.



Who doesn’t like to be nominated for an award? Well, I can tell you that I do. I thought it was absolutely touching to be nominated for the Liebster award. When I first started blogging, I had no idea people would even read my blog. I wanted a way to share my voice, and I found it. I am honored to be nominated by: This blogger is an amazingly inspirational individual and has many many great posts to read and share. I thank you so much for nominating me.

What is the Liebster Award? Having no idea how to do many things on WordPress, including figure out how many followers people have, I had to research what a Liebster Award is. So, what is it? The Liebster Award is something given to new bloggers, kind of like a pass on the love type of thing. Someone nominates you and you nominate others. Great? I think so. Apparently, “Liebster” means “dearest” in German. I didn’t verify this, it is just what I read. Anyways, I love things that give me an opportunity to tell others that I think they are great in a formalized way.

Here are the rules:
