LIEBSTER Award!!! I got one!!

 I want to thank Bethany at BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER for nominating me for a LIEBSTER Award!  I'm sure she'd love a visit!

What IS the LIEBSTER Award?  I asked the same thing!  I had seen the button on a lot of blogs; but never inquired about it.
Simply put, it's an honor that gets passed around by bloggers with less than 200 followers. It's a great way for the newbie, like me, to network and meet others.
It's a way to 'Pay It Forward".  Liebe means LOVE in German!

"The real "gist" of the Liebster Award is that there is no real award. There are no judges, no special rules. No website with an official team to congratulate you and hold your hand. It's mostly what you want it to be. If you receive the award, you can 1) accept it and 2) pass it along. It's that easy."  Sopphey over at SOPPHEY SAYS 
Stop over and say HI!

And here are the rules:
  • Thank your nominator & include a link back to their blog!
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you by your nominator
  • Post 11 facts about yourself
  • Nominate 5-11 {I’ve seen various numbers} other up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers for the award–no tag backs!
  • Come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer
  • Let your nominees know you nominated them so they too can pass on the Liebe!
