Liebster Blog Award!

In my last post, I blogged about my 2011 Christmas Wishlist - however I have just received an early Christmas present which has put the biggest smile on my face!

This is all thanks to the lovely Miss Directions, who has nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award!  Thank you so much, Miss Directions... you have absolutely made my day with this award! :)

"Liebster" is a German word which means dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favourite.  The idea of the Liebster award is that it is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers, all in the spirit of fostering new connections and to bring attention to these brilliant blogs! 

The rules are :
  1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you
  2. Reveal the five blogs you have chosen and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
  3. Copy and paste the award onto your blog
  4. Request that people you have sent the award to forward it on to their favourite bloggers
Step 1 is easy! Thank you so much to you, Miss Directions.  I started this little blog not expecting much at all, but to have something like this which recognises that people read and more importantly actually enjoy what you are doing means so much! :) I love reading your blog, and encourage everyone to pop in at Miss Directions to say hello!

Now time to share the love! I have to be honest, I am so new to this blogging thing I'm not actually even sure how you determine how many followers a blog has! There's a bloglovin' thing, or a Google thing, and stuff like that... what do they even mean?! So I've just taken this as Google followers?

As bad as it sounds, I can't locate some of my favourite blogs! I have only just really started working out this "followers" stuff, but when I locate them again, I will add them to here! :)

The 5 blogs that I nominate for this award are :
  1. Mish - Things I Like
  2. The New MrsG - LittlePurplePolkaDots
  3. Jaztee
  4. KerKer - The Ugly Moments
  5.  MsJelena
So head on over and have a visit! Also, why not leave a comment? I love reading blogs, and since starting up my own have made more of a conscious effort to leave a little comment. It's an easy way to let the blogger know you're reading, you like what they have to say and that they're not talking to themselves! :)

ETA - So I know I'm only meant to nominate 5 blogs but... I'm greedy! I found a couple of the blogs I have found to be a good read so thought I'd like to mention them too!


  1. Thanks for the nomination Cat! I enjoy reading your blog too. Does this mean I can nominate more blogs? Lol. Keep up the great work :) x

  2. You're more than welcome Cat, just passing on the love :-) xox

  3. Wow Thank you for nominating me =) I really enjoy reading your blog as well! So that is why I have nominated you back! Keep up the awesome work!

  4. Cat I am so silly! Another friend of mine nominated me for the award before I realised that you had also! And yours was one of the first blogs I nominated *laughs* Thank you so much for the nomination! I've decided to leave your nomination there anyway, as hopefully some new readers will discover your blog and love it as much as I do :)
