Liebster Blog Award

I was browsing through my blogger reading list just now when I saw that the lovely Christine from from Little Red Bow had nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award which is just wonderful and she's lovely so I suggest you all check her blog out.

The rules of the Liebster Award are:

  • The award is for bloggers with less than 300 followers.
  • You must link back to the blogger who awarded you.
  • If you are nominated, give 11 random facts about you, answer the 11 questions provided and compile 11 of your own.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers.
I think this is a really lovely idea as it's a great way to discover and share new blogs.

Twitter #bbloggers chats are amazing for finding new blogs, also comments as I click on every person who comments on my posts and just clicking through other people's! I'm nosey and I like to find new blogs to follow.
