Today I was given the Liebster Award by Sara and Julia, the sew-sew runners.
Liebster is a German word meaning favourite, dearest or beloved. The Liebster Blog Award is awarded by bloggers to other new bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to help spread the word about their blogs and to help them gain wider recognition.
The Liebster award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:
1. Choose 5 up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blog so they know about the award.
4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don’t know about you.
So… kind of like a benign chain letter. Thank you, Sara and Julia! OK… 5 blogs…
And 5 random facts that (most) people don’t know…
I want a tattoo but don’t want the discomfort.
Ditto belly button ring.
I am determined to establish a productive vegetable garden – and eat what I grow.
I am raising chickens but there is no way in the world I will eat one. (Just the eggs!)
I really, really do want a dog and I’m sure it would completely over complicate my life.
