     OK so you are probably asking yourself "What is a Liebster award"?   Well I am going to tell you!
     The word Liebster in German means dearest or lovely.  The Liebster award is given to new up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.  While the Liebster award is not a trophy or certificate you are being recognized. This award is a nice way for new bloggers to get to know other new bloggers.

If you are a nominee you are in no way obligated to accept this award.  If you do however choose to except there are a few things that you will need to do. 

 Here is what to do if you accept the award.
   1. Send blog love back to the blog that nominated you and link back to them.
   2. Nominate 5 - 11 new bloggers who have 200 or less followers.
   3. Answer the questions posted for you by your nominator.
   4. Share 11 random facts about yourself.
   5. Decide on 11 questions to ask your nominees to answer.
   6. Contact your nominees and let them know that you have nominated them for the award after you have posted yours.
   7. Have fun!  Alright I added that one myself!
