I have been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award 200

I was nominated by Kaykay Obi for the Liebster Blog Award, an award designed for upcoming bloggers that have less than 200 followers.

The purpose is to find out about new bloggers... The word “Liebster” is German and means favorite (fancy that people actually think my blog is good...)

I have actually been nominated before, so I am game for another challenge...

Anyway, in order to accept and participate there are some steps:

1.    Tell 11 things about yourself.
2.    Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
3.    Post 11 questions for those who will be nominated by you.
4.    Nominate 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
5.    Get in contact with those 11 bloggers in order to inform them that you nominated them.
