Wow I have three nominations for the Leibster award! 😀
So many thanks to Electra King , The social Chameleon and Catherine over at The Cat’s Claws
Each of the sets of rules have are slightly different from each of my nominations so I did a bit of googling and found this:
The Official Rules Of The Liebster Award
If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award
in which you:
1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”.
(Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers.
(Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this
6. create a list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. list these rules in your post. (You can copy and paste them from here.)
Once you have written your post, and published it, you then have to:
8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award
and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)
I would like to add that you can nominate someone who already has been given this award, as long as
they have less than 1000 followers/subscribers. The idea behind this award is to recognize new bloggers and
help promote them! The benefit is that you get from doing this is that you get some promotion, too!

Yay to Earl Grey Tea! (Actually, my aunt brought , some Teevana tea from the States, WHITE tea with bergamot – no green tea bitterness mixed in and it’s GLORIOUS. actually, I finished it yesterday and I’m mourning it since it’s really hard to find in the uk. Have you ever had white Earl Grey?)
Hehe, the rules are different on different blogs, I found those you posted too, but I eventually decided to go with rules from the blog who nominated me : )
