My First Blog Award - LIEBSTER

Liebster means ‘Dearest’ in German.

The real "gist" of the Liebster Award is that there is no real award. There are no judges, no special rules. No website with an official team to congratulate you and hold your hand. It's mostly what you want it to be. If you receive the award, you accept it and pass it along. It's that easy.

*P.S: There is no general committee that gives this award. It's just a recognition from one blogger to another for how awesome they are!

Rules for nomination and being nominated are:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
2. The nominee must post 11 things about themselves.
3. Answer 11 questions from nominator.
4. Choose 11 deserving bloggers and link them in your post.
5. Inform the people you nominated by commenting on one of their posts.

I thank Rudra Prayag for nominating me.

I thank Bushra and Richa Singh for my second nomination!
