Now I'm a very curious person, I love to research things getting facts and figures right.  I have never heard of 'Liebster Awards' before.  I've never seen it posted on any blog either.   Lucky for me other bloggers have been just as curious so I didn't have to do so much noisy around.

The word Liebster is a German word, meaning Dearer.  So the translation is The Dearer Award.  Its a very indearing award, an award passed on from blogger to blogger meaning for a dear friend, great endearing read. I'm guessing here best to make your know opinion. This reminds me of a sort of a chain letter without a threat of some sort curse happening if you dont pass on the info.

Now the rules which have been advised are very clearly above but like Chinese whispers its appears the rules have changed over the 3 years form the original (supposedly as the original post can not be located) Details found here on Sopphey Says blog.
She mentions nominate 5 bloggers and the nominated bloggers can have upto 3000 followers!  Also no mention of questions.  Chinese Whispers indeed!
Now I always enjoy a good games of Chinese Whispers, I will adhere to Dellilahs' rules!

Thank you for nominating me for the Liebster award, I am truly honoured. I opened my blog in June, 2011. It took me a long time to put my thinking cap on, I didnt actual post a blog until thats following September.  There are times I dont write and always feel guilty for not doing so.  I gave myself a massive kick up the ass as I do enjoy blogging and its great to say I have followers. I hope to keep you entertained.
Thank you
