Twice in one day?! Wow! Just coming by to say that I've been nominated for the Liebster award (honestly I've never heard of it before) but apparently it's a blog hop to get to know other new bloggers. I was nominated by Lia, take a peek at her blog!
The Liebster Award is a fun opportunity to promote small blogs as well as revealing a bit more about yourself to your readers. To qualify for the Liebster Award your blog needs to be less than 6 months old (date of the first blog) OR have less than 200 followers. And you also have to do the following:
1. List 11 random things about yourself
2. Answer 11 random questions from the person that nominated you
3. Choose 11 blogs to pass the Liebster Award on to and notify them
4. Create 11 questions that your nominees have to answer
