Liebster Blog Award

Most bloggers, at some point, have heard of or received the Liebster award, unless you are a newbie. It follows similar principles as a chain letter, in the sense that it should be passed forward to a certain number of people.It is said that the Liebster award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere. In the digital world of the internet, this seems like a nice gesture, in my opinion!

I was nominated for Liebster Blog Award by my dear nail buddy Alpana. thank you very much Alpana for making me a part of the Liebster Blog Award chain.
