The Liebster Award: My first blogger award!
I am so excited! I never thought the day would come that I would receive a blogger award. I was excited when I had one GFC (Google Friend Connect) follower which meant I wasn't hated by the entire world for my love of polish and nail art! The name of this award kinda scared me because I have never heard "liebster" and it was not explained in a lot of other blogs I have seen awarded it. So before I wanted to write this post and embarrass myself if it actually meant "dog crap" or "worlds worst blogger" award, I looked for the definition to liebster. Turns out it a German word and means darling, beloved, boyfriend, and sweetheart. Ahhhh, how sweet is that. It made me smile once I read the definition. There are only a few rules for the award and they are as follows:
1. Put the link to who gave you the award.
2. Put the award on your post.
3. Choose 5 blogs with under 200 followers to receive the award.
4. Let them know you awarded them.
First off, can I just say that I love that someone thought to create an award to help new bloggers feel great about themselves and also help promote other new bloggers in the gigantic blogosphere!?!?! What a neat idea.
I was given this award by The Varnished Valkyrie. In her first blog post she writes, "Why the Varnished Valkyrie? I assume if I were flying out of the sky on my horse, getting ready to choose who dies in battle, my nails would be wicked awesome." He he. These girls are funny. I highly suggest checking them out.
Now time for my tags:
Adventures of the Nail Friend
Nails By Carol
Peace, Love, Lacquer
Wow, this post took me longer to write than I thought. :) But so worth it. I am off to tell these ladies that they have been tagged for an award. Hopefully they have as much fun spreading the blog love as I have.
