Liebster Award

Hey all! So, it seems that I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award, an award from bloggers, for bloggers. It is basically a way for people to share and discover new blogs. Cool, right? If you know me outside of this blog, feel free to skip this post… If not, you can check out my responses and get to know me better! And be sure to check out the awesome folks I’ve nominated. :)


“The Rules:

  • You must link back to the person who nominated you
  • You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominee before you
  • You must pick 11 nominees with under 200 (or 2000 if you want to go with that) followers to answer your questions
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you
  • You must let the people you nominate know they have been nominated”

A special thanks to Lisak0 for nominating me! You can check out her blog here.
