Lots of excitement here at “…thoughts from the Garden”…. Tamara of mybotanicalgarden.wordpress.com has nominated the URI Botanical Gardens Blog (that’s me) for the Liebster Blog Award. Thank you, Tamara!
The Liebster Blog Award is apparently shrouded in mystery, because I can’t find much information about it, other than what I have been able to glean from bloggers who won the award and posted about it.
Here is what I found out: “The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany ( Liebster meaning “favorite” or “dearest”), to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award, the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note.”
Here are the rules of the award:
• Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog. (done)
• Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you. (done)
• Copy and paste the blog award on your blog. (done)
• Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed. (coming soon….)
