The Liebster Award

Liebster Award



This was my first response when Siren and Soul received a message from June at Sometimes Write,  letting us know that she has nominated us in the Liebster Awards.

The Liebster Awards helps recognise new bloggers and helps them connect with each other.


Each blogger that’s nominated must do the following:

  • Name the blogger who nominated you and display the award.
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions you have been asked.
  • Nominate and notify 11 bloggers you choose to award.
