I'm intrigued by this Liebster Award Karen. Can one nominate other blogs without having first been nominated? Also, how do you suggest I find new blogs like mine that I can check out. Thanks!

Karen Marie said...

The idea of the award is that you are recognized by your peers. You would be nominated by some one and then nominate others. However that being said,the rules are flexible, having changed many times from the start in 2010. You can Goggle Liebster Award and more specific answers to your question. I have added you to my circles and look forward keeping up with your adventures.
