Liebster Blog Award

as you can probably guess this is not my usual recipe post or talking about food. but since Sara from My Finnish Delights has presented me with the Liebster Blog Award I thought this would be worth doing a different kind of post.

so as far as I understand this Blog Award is not an actual award awarded by a jury or such, it is an award bloggers can give to other bloggers and a way to recommend blogs you like to your readers. liebster is german for favourite (it is when it comes to things like blogs, if you use it for a person it's more of a darling kind of thing) so it just shows your appreciation for other blogs and I think it's a nice gesture.

also it gives you the chance to get to know me a bit better. not that I'm very interesting but why not ey.

The Rules

1. Post 11 random facts about yourself
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to
3. Choose 11 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link to them in your post
4. Tell them about the award
5. No tag-backs
