Leibster Blog Award

Posted on December 12th, 2011

The Award

I have been awarded with the Liebster Blog award and am very honoured.  This is an award bestowed upon bloggers with less than 200 followers and the idea is to foster new connections between bloggers.  Apparently the word Leibster is German and means dearest, so this is a great award to have been given by the lovely  Mum.

The rules

The rules for the award are fairly straightforward, to thank the person who nominated you and nominate 5 other bloggers with less than 200 followers. 

More Than a Mum

She has a lovely parenting blog at http://morethanamumblog.wordpress.com which is well worth a visit for all things parenting. A great writing style and interesting posts that keep you coming back.
