What is the “Liebster Blog Award?”    

This prestigious award honors up and coming bloggers and reputedly began years ago in Germany. “Liebster” is German for “favorite”, so in a way this award is the “favorite blog award” as another blogger put it.  You receive this award from a fellow blogger that feels your blog is both worthy & important to them. If you receive this award, and decide to accept it, please pay it forward following the ‘rules’:

Hello…I noticed you picked Mike Kinney Photography for the Liebster Award, which I highlighted on my blog SwittersB. I don’t believe Mike will know of this achievement via my blog so you may, if you haven’t, reach out to him directly.
