***Long Post Alert***
I so graciously ACCEPT!!!
From what I've gathered, after I finished blushing and getting myself together, is that “Liebster” is a German word meaning “beloved” or “darling” (doesn't this sound JUST like me :)) and the award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers in a show of appreciation and gratitude! Or something along those lines...
Each person must post 11 things about themselves (I think they should reduce this whole 11 number thing, seriously)!
Answer the questions the nominator made for you.
Choose and link 11 people to your post.
Create 11 questions for the people/blogs you nominate (and let them know, of course)
No tag backs(ies)!
