Huge thanks to Pam & Christine at We Run Disney for nominating me for a Liebster Award. I really enjoyed getting to know them better when they were nominated and I’m honored that they want to get to know more about me and RAD 🙂
“The scoop on the Liebster award is that bloggers nominate other bloggers with 200 or less followers. Liebester means ‘favorite’ in German, so bloggers are to promote their favorite blogs, which will help others find new ones! If you are nominated, you have to follow the rules below and nominate 11 more blogs to keep the fun going!!” What a fun way to network and expand the blogging community!
Here are the rules for nominees:
- List 11 facts about yourself.
- Answer the 11 questions given to you.
- Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
- Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
- Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
- Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
