The amazing Phanneth over at Firefly Tales nominated The 5th Level of Motherhood for a Liebster award! Hum-uh-na what... is Liebster you ask??
Well, I did some research (you can call me Moogle) and apparently it was started by a German blogger several years ago. Basically, it's an award given to blogs with less than 200 followers, and there are certain criteria that must be met in order to continue sharing this award with other bloggers. It’s sort of like a fun chain letter that helps bloggers connect, discover new blogs and support one another!
The rules for the Liebster Award are as follows:
- Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
- Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
- Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
- Go to their page and tell them about the award.
- No tag backs.
