This looks like a fun way to get to know other bloggers! Thanks Karen Perry Creates for nominating me for the Liebster Award!
The Liebster Award highlights blogs that have less than 200 followers (give or take) as a way to recognize new and upcoming blogs. Accepting and paying forward these awards is a great way to expose people to new blogs and give a little recognition to blogs that you like. The 11 blogs I nominated have inspired me, made me think, made me laugh or cry (likely both) and I want to celebrate you.
After being nominated, each nominee must:
1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger
2. Share 11 random facts about yourself
3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger that nominated you has created for you
4. Nominate 11 new bloggers
5. Post 11 questions for your nominees to answer
6. Let all the bloggers know that they have been nominated; but you cannot nominate the blogger that nominated you.
