Before I start with this award process, let me specify that I don’t normally do this, and I apologize to the last blogger who nominated me for an award and I never got around to doing the whole process of accepting the award. If I remember correctly, it was http://mommyverbs.wordpress.com, she has a wonderful blog and I really recommend going over for a visit. 🙂 Now back to the purpose of this post.

A lovely blogger, Rola from http://thetalkingpencil.wordpress.com nominated me for one! It’s an award created and shared by fellow bloggers who nominate his or her favorite blogger whose blog has 200 readers or fewer (don’t quote me on the exact number as it seems to have changed since the award’s inception). It’s a fun way to basically share the love among the blogging community. So, here are the four elements of the Liebster Award:

1) Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to his or her blog.

2) Answer the 10 questions by the nominee before you.

3) Nominate 10 of your favorite blogs with fewer than 200 readers, and notify them of their nomination.

4) Come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
