Life of Wanderlusters awarded with the Liebster prize

 

I have the immense pleasure to let you know that Life of Wanderlusters has been nominated for the Liebster Award!

Last week I got a message on Facebook from another blogger telling me that I was nominated for the Liebster Award, and I was super duper happy! I didn´t even think anyone will consider my blog. I only have 10 posts up… But here we are, nominated woohoo! and that is not all of it, this morning I opened up Facebook and I had another message from another blogger letting me know that she loved my blog and wanted to nominate me too! what are the chances!!!

Now is my turn to nominate new bloggers and explain to you what the Liebster Award means, and what I what I have to do here in this post. For those like me that didn´t know much about this award here are the main points a nominee needs to do:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Provide 10 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer the blogger’s questions
  • Create questions for the chosen bloggers
  • Nominate between 5 to 11 new bloggers with 200 readers or less.
  • List the rules on your blog.
  • Tell your nominees they have been chosen 🙂

The Liebster Award is a way to connect bloggers and create a sense of community. It encourages the promotion and support among new bloggers, by sharing the links of the nominees and having a little or big description about the blog and person who nominated you in the first place. It also comes with a Q&A to answer. Every nominee chooses 10 questions to ask the next nominated bloggers. To learn more about the Liebster Award you can visit the Official Rules here.

Since I have been nominated twice I am going to combine both nominations here. It´s going to be a long post, sorry about that!
