The Liebster Award–A warm fuzzy for new bloggers


Last week I was awarded the Leibster Award from the great mother and daughter blogging duo at Pretty in Gingham!  What an honor!  The Liebster Award is a blogging award specifically for new bloggers.  Liebster means beloved in German.

The Liebster Award is a great warm fuzzy for new bloggers!  New bloggers that receive the award then pass it on to 11 more new bloggers.  It’s like a chain-mail award.  Pass those warm fuzzies around!!!

Here are the rules of the Liebster Award:

1. Answer questions from the blogger who nominated you.
2. Nominate 11 new blogs with 500 followers or less.
3. Post 11 new questions for your nominees to answer.
4. Tag your nominees and leave a comment on each blog letting bloggers know they’ve won.

My questions from Pretty in Gingham.

1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
My  online homemade business is called Purple House Designs and I started Purple House Blog as a companion blog.  I loved coming up with DIY crafts and fun recipes that had nothing to do with my business and Purple House Blog took off!

I have many goals for my blog. Topping my list is gaining more followers and continuing to provide excellent content.
