LiebsterAward

So what is Liebster award? It is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers and is about recognizing new food bloggers. Gives a real confidence boost to novice bloggers and encourages them to keep blogging. What does Liebster mean? Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Positive words of motivation for upcoming blogs, a great way to connect and get to know each other – an award of the bloggers, by the bloggers, for the bloggers!

So when a blogger gets nominated for the Liebster award, here is what they have to do:

  • Nominees must link back the person who nominated their blog
  • Answer the 10 questions that are given by the nominator.
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award who have fewer than 200 followers.
  • Create 10 questions for the new nominees to answer.
  • Go to the nominee blogs and notify them about their nominations

So here are my answers to Jacqui’s questions!

    Christmas day meal where all the family members sit together and eat.
  3. What ingredient could you not do without?

  7. Salted Chocolate- love or hate?
    No way would I ever eat that….Salted chocolate…that’s not for me.
  8.  Whats the first thing you remember cooking/baking?
    Baking- the first time I tried baking a cake everything seemed to have gone wrong that day. After I had mixed everything in the bowl and was about to pour it in the pan, the bowl slipped and the whole mix had spilled on the table and the floor and I had to start all over again.
  9.  Do you have a favourite restaurant?
    That’s a tough question indeed. I have many favourites..Can’t think of any in particular.
  10.  What made you start your blog?
    I love food and also love to cook and bake.Soi thought that a blog is a very good medium to share my thoughts about the same and also the recipes which i love to make for my family and friends.

As per Liebster rules, I should now nominate 10 other bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers. Sometimes it is hard to tell how many followers a blog has unless it is displayed in the homepage. Jacqui mentioned she has the same problem! Welcome to the world of new bloggers! If anyone knows how we can check this, please do share the information. Honestly speaking, this rule of Liebster, really pushed me to explore the blogs out there. Thanks to this, found some truly awesome blogs. Selected 10 listed below.
