I've been blogging for about 7 months now and besides my makeup reviews and product photos, I've never really given out much information about myself. Last week Almu of feelbella.com left a comment on one of my posts saying that she nominated my blog for the infamous Liebster Award! For the next second I was dumbfounded — Liebster Award?! What's the Liebster Award?!
The funny thing about the Liebster Award is, no one really knows its origin. There is no official website. There is no official award. And I don't even know who decides who gets the award! From what I gather, someone somewhere started it and now it's become sort of a “blogging chain”‘ thing that once you nominate someone, it is up to them whether they'd like to participate. To participate, there are rules to follow. The biggest rule that I feel a little uncomfortable with is, at the end you have to nominate other people, too. Not that I mind nominating anyone, but what if that person doesn't feel comfortable participating? Awkward on both parts.
As for me, I am more than glad to participate so thanks again Almu for including me! If anything, I think it is fun for me to list a few facts about myself and for you to get to know me a little. :)
So here we go.
So here's what you have to do once you have been nominated:
- Mention the person who nominated you.
- List 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions asked by the nominator.
- Create a new set of 11 questions and nominate 11 other bloggers who should have less than 200 followers.
Why 11? No idea. Under 200 followers based on what social network? Wish I knew. LOL!
11 Random facts about myself
