I was given a Liebster Award by Chantal of she-travels.
I wasn’t sure at first what a Liebster award was since the post was quite vague so I searched it. This is what I found.
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn’t that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.
But I decided that this couldn’t be the origin since the name is in German. I finally found the original rules here. The source is deleted but it’s the same idea. Strangely it used to be 3,000 followers or less, only nominating 3-5 people instead of 9.
No matter what the rules may be, I have decided to participate since it was lovely of Chantal to include me.
I must answer 11 questions created by Chantal and then pay it forward by creating 11 questions of my own and selecting (a few) bloggers who fit the criteria to answer them.
