The Liebster Award
A few days ago I was very kindly nominated for the Liebster Award by Susan Buchanan, author of ‘Sign of the Times’ and ‘The Dating Game’. For this I would like to say thank you. I’ve never got involved in this sort of thing before, so thought I should. This is a great way for blogs to be discovered.
These are the rules:-
- If you are lucky enough to receive this award, add a picture of it onto your blog (see above). You can find the image on search engines such as Google.
- You then need to post 11 random facts about yourself and answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
- Pass this award onto 11 other nominees who have blogs. Please note: You cannot choose the blogger who nominated you.
- Ask your nominees 11 new questions.
