What a perfect day to receive an award? You mean, Sunday!!! Nopes after the Write Tribe Festival of Words-3 and slogging for a week as the tiredness wanes away, it makes sense to proclaim myself as the Liebster Winner. Proclaim myself!! errr! Proclaimed by Stri of (http://iamstri.wordpress.com) much before Words Festival started but that’s me!! I love giving myself the crown, a bit like Galahad (Sir) at Blandings by PG Wodehouse. Lolz!!!!!
S(t) ri is a wonderful and fun blogger whom I met online quite recently and we are friends..I love her stories, poem and what’s not!!! Do you wanna me spoil the beans bout’ Sri!!! Nopes!! Check her craving for choco on the blog and, of course, you’ll know more bout the self-claimed naughty chick on the block. Time for me to accept the award as I try to be at ma funniest and wackiest best.
Now, hold your reins..this is a copy-and-paste thingy from Sri’s blog!! See! How shameless I am!!!!
The Liebster Award originated in Germany with the earliest record of it being found in 2010. It is an internet award given by a blogger to a blogger. The meaning of liebster is dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, valued, pleasant, cute, welcome, sweetheart, endearing; all terms which I would be happy to have associated with me. It’s all about finding and encouraging the new bloggers in the blogsphere!
The nominee can either accept or not however the benefits to the blogger far outweigh the time taken to fulfill the requirements. I for one love awards and enjoy getting to know other bloggers that have not come across my path in the normal course of events.
The really nice thing about the Liebster Award is that it is an award designed to find/recognize new bloggers and welcome them to the world of blogging. A little like taking your basket of scones and going across the street to welcome your new neighbor. It is a really nice thing to do. So thank you Nibhz for your welcome and welcome in return.
