It is awesome to be among a great tradition that has been on the Internet for ages. I am excited to participate in an award that fosters relationship with other bloggers.
I was nominated by Deb Morgan for the Liebster award. I have come across this award in so many blogs but I never got curious till I got the message from Deb.
So putting on my curiosity cap, I scavenged on the internet seeking to know more about this award.
Turns out that the Liebster award has a German origin which means dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved… it is a way of promoting other fellow bloggers on the internet for their works and accomplishment in being a blogger.
The beauty of this award is that it recognizes that everyone can make a difference which is a motto for this blog. So I will like to wish Deb success in every of her endeavour and thank her for nominating me for the Liebster award.
