Hey guys , so I just got nominated for the Liebster Award !! Yayyy Happy Dance 🙂 Thank you Aishwarya For nominating me. (Check out this pretty girl’s blog here)
It’s so nice to have my blog appreciated by other bloggers! I didn’t know what the Liebster Award was and after a bit of googling, I found out it’s an award by bloggers for bloggers. It’s pretty much like a chain letter or some other blogs call it a pen pal letter. It’s up to the blogger to accept it and pass it on (nominate) to other bloggers. You guys remember those long chain letters back in elementary school or the ones you’d get from an e-mail list. If you break the chain, then you are rewarded with 10,000 years of bad luck!! haha
In a sense it’s something to that degree. Here’s a site I found that pretty much details all the rules as per being nominated for the Liebster Award. Can go check it out here: Liebster Award, what is it? I think it’s a neat way to check out new blogs and to get your name out there. 🙂
I’ve read a variation of rules so here’s what I could come up with:
- First off, thank the person who nominated you!
- Post the Liebster Award logo of your choice and post the rules
- Write 11 random facts about yourself, answer 11 questions that were posed to you by your nominator.
- Nominate 5 bloggers with less than 3,000 followers. I chose WordPress followers. There are some who use Twitter or Facebook followers as a guide. Don’t forget to notify them!
- Post11 questions for the bloggers you nominate.
11 Random Facts About Myself:
- I can write with both hands 🙂 I was born left-handed but after everyone started correcting me I became right-handed.Not sure why though 🙂 Yes I am an Ambidextrous.
- I am a home fragrance freak. Due to endlessly splurging on them , my home is filled with scented potpourri baskets & scented candles. If you ever come home you will not only get confused with the fragrance but also get a headache 😛 😛
- 50% of my day goes in daydreaming 😛 People close to me tell me that I go into some Trans World for a few seconds everyday. Is that even possible ?

Loose fitting t-shirt and shorts with some nice comfy Keds.
