I was in Melbourne when I found out that "Chef and Sommelier" was nominated for the Liebster Blog award by Veronica of Minty's Kitchen. This is my very first award and I am extremely thrilled, excited and honoured to be nominated. My heart-felt appreciation to Veronica for the nomination and a BIG Thank You to all my followers and readers for your support and valuable comments all this while.
Let's continue to eat, drink, blog and be merry!
Liebster is a German word and it means dearest or favourite. The significance of this award is to bring more attention to your favourite blogs with fewer than 200 followers, who deserve to have more recognition and followers than they already have. In other words, it is like a chain letters of love for baby-bloggers.
The rules to accepting this award:
Add the award icon to your blog
Link to your nominator to say thank you
Answer the questions the nominator has set for you, and create 11 questions for your own nominees to answer
Choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers, go to their blog and tell them about the award
