Today I was introduced to the fantastic concept of the Liebster Blog Awards. I have the lovely Colette from Cakes, Bakes and other Bits to thank for this introduction. You can also follow Colette on her Twitter profile @katzwizkaz Colette chose me as one of her 5 choices for the Liebster Blog Awards, thank you Colette, delighted to be chosen.
So I had a further look into the awards and found out that 'liebster' is German for 'favourite'. It's a way of promoting those little gems of blogs that we all have, where we love and know should have more followers. A fantastic way to share the love :)
So how does it work?
- You thank the person who gave you the award
- Then link back to that person's blog
- Copy and paste the Liebster award to your own profile
- Pick 5 blogs who you feel deserve to be noticed (they have to have under 200 followers)
- Then finally blog it and leave a comment to let your 5 choices know they have been chosen.
My 5 choices in no particular order are;
Bia Ó Mo Chroí - Caroline's blog is a foodie feast with everything from recipes to restaurant reviews with some food festivals thrown in. You can also follow Caroline on her Twitter @CaroCreates
