The Liebster Award was created in 2011 to honor exceptional Weblog On-line Diaries–aka. BLOGS. It is a blogging award given by bloggers–essentially to positively recognize new talent. The Award works to connect and support up-and-coming bloggers within the blogging community. The process is simple yet effective. In all, nominees expand their contacts by way of those who nominate them and then again, through reaching out to even newer sites that they find impressive. Basically, it’s a bloggers version of ‘sharing it forward’ and we love the concept! (Thanks Natts!)
