My First Liebster Blog Award

             Something really interesting I received recently....A Liebster Blog Award..Didnt know what it was..Felt really surprised & happy too...Anyhow it was an Award..Should be something good..

             It was Kauser's Kitchen who nominated me for this award...(was lucky enough to be one of her favorites..!!)....I came to notice her at the time of my event Restyle My Taste ' which she joined me with her wonderful entry... Do check out her blog...Its really amazing...It was she who explained to me about this award...Later I googled to get more information as I was really new to this word even..I feel its new to everyone who's new enough to this blogging world..

             The effect 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 can accept it and pass it along.... It's that easy.... Its an award for upcoming bloggers with less than 200 followers and for who someone believes deserve some recognition for their blogging... Cute Enough !!

          I'm having 89 followers for now...Might be a small number, but I have 1100 followers in facebook..&  I don't think that's a small number..Have 134 in my circle in google+ & have twitter followers too..But really feeling very lucky to receive such a recognition within just 7 months of blogging.... This basically boosts someone's blog reputation which is a fantastic idea and everyone deserves a chance at it! Special thanks to Kauser...!! Feeling honored to be nominated...

           This is a kind of  chain letter, a blogger to blogger award, in which you have to nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers...The word "liebster" is dearest/favorite in German, and still no one knows the origin of this lovely award....Supporting other bloggers and receiving support from them is one of the most rewarding parts of blogging....

          The Liebster Award is a recognition that is passed on from one small blogger to another as a way of supporting & helping each other grow their respective blogs.  Sort of a “hey, I like your blog and I’d like other’s to discover it, too”, sort of a thing....
