Yipppeeee!!!! I am so happy and honored to accept the Liebster Award nominated by Nibhz from her post The Liebster Award.
Nibhz is a lovely story-teller and a thoughtful poet. The stories and poems are simple yet intense. She has this wonderful blog where you can read her stories and poems. Also find her store’s page on Facebook at KRAFTCONA.
The Liebster Award originated in Germany with the earliest record of it being found in 2010. It is an internet award given by a blogger to a blogger. The meaning of liebster is dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, valued, pleasant, cute, welcome, sweetheart, endearing; all terms which I would be happy to have associated with me. It’s all about finding and encouraging the new bloggers in the blogsphere!
The nominee can either accept or not however the benefits to the blogger far outweigh the time taken to fulfill the requirements. I for one love awards and enjoy getting to know other bloggers that have not come across my path in the normal course of events.
The really nice thing about the Liebster Award is that it is an award designed to find/recognize new bloggers and welcome them to the world of blogging. A little like taking your basket of scones and going across the street to welcome your new neighbor. It is a really nice thing to do. So thank you Nibhz for your welcome and welcome in return.
