Happy New year!
I know, while everyone wished you this on the first of the month, I waited till we have a taste of the 2018 that we all seemed to gush about before saying it, I hope it’s been truly a Happy one for you so far.
We’ll talk about how it’s been in the next blog post, today I’m celebrating my nomination for the Liebster Award. I was too excited and i’m happy to finally get down to acknowledging my nomination and nominating amazing prodigy’s.
First of all, I would love to thank the beautiful Mema Ojukwu who nominated me for the award. Her blog Uplift girl is the most versatile and relatable blog I have seen for really all girls from all age groups. It’s that blog that you could sign-post anyone to, irrespective of gender, religion, age or geographical location. So, Dearest Mema, Thank you.

My Favourite blog unfortunately does not meet the criteria to be nominated for the Liebster award because she has over 200 followers.
But for this award, I love Uplift girl. I’ll be honest, I think I love it more because of the person behind it. She’s phenomenal. She’s someone with depth and I think it’s the most beautiful thing seeing the generation we currently are in.
I love how she writes and how diverse she is, her blog is really the go-to blog, for literally everything.

The Liebster Award is:
An award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers, whose work they find interesting, to motivate them and promote them as well. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
The Official Rules of the Liebster Award 2017:
Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.
Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
Write a 150-300 word post about your favorite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog, provide links.
Provide 10 random facts about yourself. (This year I’m making this optional. If you wish to engage with your readers it’s a great idea to include random facts about you.)
Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
List these rules in your post. Once you have written and published it, you then have to: Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post or mine if you don’t have all the information so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)
Don’t forget to create 10 questions for them to answer. Notify your nominees and provide a link to your post so that they’ll know what to do. Once you’re done, come back here and comment with the link to your post so others (and me) can check out your answers!
