The Liebster Award - Learn Like A Mom!


I hate to say how long ago it was, but a little while back another new blogger nominated Learn Like A Mom for the Liebster Award! That blogger was Kim from This Ole Mom. (Thanks Kim!)

Getting her message on Facebook about the nomination was the first I had ever heard of this award. So, I clicked on over to this post and read about her nomination and the rules that followed.

Then obviously…I didn’t do anything and it’s been on my to-do list for some time. While I was searching for other blogs to nominate, I also wanted to look up what the actual award is and the meaning behind it.

That search led me to Lorraine’s post about the Liebster Award and it’s Official Rules. This post is so incredibly informative! I won’t waste your time by even remotely touching the subject that she has researched in depth. So head over there if you want to read more about it! She also requested that I let you know about her other blog, Poetry Perfected!

I am choosing to accept this award and pay it forward by highlighting eleven blogs that have fewer than 200 followers on any given social network. (This was the case when I wrote this post and looked up their blogs on various social networks.) These were the rules set forth by Kim, a variation of the rules in Lorraine’s post.

If you choose to accept this award and would like to pay it forward, I ask that you follow these rules:

1. Thank the person that nominated you (That would be me!) and post a link to my blog on your blog! (That would be my homepage.)

2. When addressing the rules or questions, you can also link back to this post in your post! (Also feel free to copy and post this list of rules.)

3. Display the award in your post or on your sidebar.

4. Nominate 11 blogs that have fewer than 200 followers on any given social network. Contact them and let them know you have nominated them and send them a link to your Liebster Award Post!

5. Share 11 random facts about yourself.

6. Answer 11 questions from your nominator.

7. Create a list of 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

It is sort of like a chain letter, but with the links, acknowledgements, and support, you could generate more traffic and build your audience! By reading some of the Q&A’s, you could learn more about blogging! Why not give it a try?
