I got an award nomination? A Liebster Award...

Also known as " I got nominated for an award and all I got was this lousy blog post"
 Hello campers! I have been nominated for this thing called a Liebster  Award.  Thank you to ONETIPSYCHICK.com for nominating me. What you may ask, as I did, is this Liebster Award? Well, here's what I found out when I was nominated.
“The Liebster Award takes its name from the German word meaning dearest and is an award given to a new blogger with fewer than 200 followers. There will be no trophy or embossed certificate but it is recognition from a fellow blogger that you have valuable information to be shared. And it’s an excellent way to make new friends, network and get your blog noticed!”
The criteria, if you should accept this award, is as follows:
  • Thank your nominator by linking back to their post
  • Answer the 11 questions posed by your nominator
  • Make a list of 11 facts about yourself
  • Nominate 5 or more up and coming bloggers with fewer than 200 followers for this award
  • Provide a list of 11 questions for your nominees to answer
  • Publish your post and contact your nominees with the good news
So, that's what it is!  An award taking pity on new bloggers like me! Now I have to answer these questions, make a list of facts about myself and all the other rules. Is this a chain letter? Hmmm, well here goes! Thanks One Tipsy  Chick! Her awesome blog is here!
