Nominated for "Liebster Award"

It is awesome for being nominated. Thank you very much Ranjani and VJ Sharma for nominating our blog for "Liebster Award". It is a honor to be nominated by fellow bloggers. This motivates us to continue writing the blog.

The Liebster Award: 
The Liebster Award is given to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the world of blogging. 


If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
5. create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
6. list these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
