The Liebster Award

I know now that someone is reading my blog. I have been nominated for the Liebster award. A thank you goes to The Kitty Corner for finding me and giving me a nomination. It is a pretty much a done deal when you are nominated. There are certain things I need to do and then I can put the Liebster award logo on my blog. 

Quite honestly, I think is more like a chain letter and there is a little work involved with it. I read of some people who accepted the "honorary award", which is to say thank you but not carry the chain on. But, I am going to see if I can get this thing done. After all, blogging is about communicating and sharing. 

To fully accept the award I had to pick eleven blogs to nominate that have less than 200 followers. I have a lot of different interests and tried to pick writers in each of my interest areas. So there is quite a variety in my list.

Here is what I need to do:

  1. List the nominator’s blog on your blogroll with a link
  2. Answer a set of 11 questions asked by the nominator
  3. Provide a list of 11 random facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 11 qualified blogs (less than 200 followers) for the Liebster Award and let them know through a post on their blog page
  5. Provide a set of 11 questions for the nominated blogs to answer
  6. Display the award on you blog!
Here are the eleven questions from The Kitty Corner (answered)

Next up would be eleven random facts about myself.
