Liebster Award

A fellow and fabulous blogger, Susie over at The Esthetic Goddess Reviews, nominated my blog for a Liebster Award. (Side Note on Susie: Her blog is flipping awesome.....I think I love it so much because she is so honest. Check out her Chemical Peel post.....complete with pictures. She's the real deal!)  Now being a somewhat new blogger (You can read about my one year blog anniversary HERE.) I was a little clueless as to what this meant.  I had seen them on other peoples blog, but wasn't really sure what it entailed.  Do I get a little trophy with a girl at her laptop figurine inscribed with "Blogger of the Year"? Will a certificate arrive in the mail that I can frame saying that my blog is a Liebster contender?  Um, no to all of those. A Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers by other bloggers.  Its a chance to give new writers a spotlight, to give other bloggers a shout out, and say "Hey, I think your blogs the shit".  Well I love meeting new people (especially in blog land), and I love getting awards.  So here it goes:

The Rules
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
6. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. List these rules in your post. Once you have written 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!)
