I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award!

on October 6, 2012

Back in September, I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Mommy Go Run.  In September I was doing the writing challenge and didn’t really have time to do anything about my nomination.  Now that the challenge is over and I’ve got a bit more time, I thought it was time to get to this post.  First of all, thanks to Mommy Go Run for the nomination…awards are always nice!

I had actually never heard of this award before, so hit Wikipedia and Google to see what it was all about.  I couldn’t find too much about it, but apparently it is award for up and coming bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  There are three things that those nominated for the award must do:
