Liebster Award

The minute i logged in to Blogger, saw there were two comments to be published by me. Having comments to be published is obviously a happy thing to me or any blogger. One comment was from Mehroo Turel from who said my blog has been hand picked among the other few to receive the Liebster-award. Now i had heard about this award but had no idea how it works. And also thought for a minute that it might just be a funny comment. Went ahead and checked the link she provided. First thing i noticed was how pretty the Liebster award logo looked. Pink and pretty.

Here it is people 

Then i read the below instructions which I'm following now.

Liebster Award is used to highlight smaller, lesser known blogs, blogs that have less than 200 followers. Liebster (the word means kindest, dearest, beloved, cute, endearing in German) is an award that you accept with an intention of paying it forward.

While accepting the award you have to:

a. Post 11 things about yourself
b. Answer 11 questions set by the nominator
c. Choose 11 deserving bloggers meeting the criteria
d. Set 11 questions for them.
e. Inform the nominee by commenting on one of their posts.
You are not obligated to accept the award to send it forward. This is just a way to get a word out about new blogs that your followers may not know.
