Blogosphere certainly seems to me like a whole new universe; with its limitless number of acronyms, tools, widgets, challenges and awards. I have wondered, who hands out these awards to these bloggers, whether there is an organization that is keenly looking at the countless blogs and their countless posts.
It sort of was an answer when my friend SheethalSusanÂ nominated me for the Liebster Award, wondering what the whole thing was, I decided to do a bit of research myself. The most I learned was that it was kind of a chain letter, a blogger to blogger award, you had to nominate 5 bloggers with less than 200 readers, “liebster” is dearest in German, and that no one knew the origins. With the passing of time, rules have changed and now it is given to 11 bloggers who have a limited number of followers, less than 200 to be exact.
Accepting this award requires me to pass it on to 11 other bloggers, ask them 11 questions, answer the 11 questions posed to me, as well as state 11 random facts about myself. Phew! I know it does sound tedious, but then awards are to be earned, so here goes my list of nominations:
