Nominated for the Liebster Award After 9 Months of Blogging! (Time to Birth This Blog Baby?) — Also, My 100th Post!


I’ve been honored with a Liebster Award nomination!

New Crunchy Mom of That New Crunchy Mom was thoughtful to nominate me.  When you have a minute, check out her blog — it’s full of fun reads!

For those of you who don’t know what the Liebster Award is, I’ll give you the basics: It’s an online award originally given by more established bloggers to newer bloggers or those who don’t have a lot of followers (less than 200) and post worthy, quality material. If the blogger accepts the award, s/he then nominates a few more favorite bloggers waiting for their awesome stuff to be “found” and thus the chain continues. Here’s a pretty good breakdown of the different variations of rules, the benefits of accepting this award, etc.
