These are the various awards given to me by other bloggers in the community. There’s always some question as to where these come from and why they’re passed around. I try to research each award I’m given/nominated for.
I was ecstatic when I got my first one. To you it’s may not be a large to-do but it was still cool as heck for me. It means people are reading what I write.
1. Liebster Blog Award – So here’s what I’ve found out about this award so far. The award is originally German, or so the story goes. Liebster Auszeichnung is German for dearest award. By the way there’s no word for “blog” in German that I can find. It originally was given to people who had less than 200 followers. Once you received it you would pass it along to between 3 to 5 other blogs, at your discretion. Apparently there has been a very big twist added to it recently, in the past year. (Probably in 2011.)
2. Very Inspiring Blogger Award – I cannot find any info on this award, searching every possible way I can think of. Here’s the low down on this one. 1.)Display the award logo on your blog. 2.) Link back to the person who nominated you. 3.) State 7 things about yourself. 4.) Nominate 15 bloggers for this award. 5.) Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back. (or another means of notification I’m guessing would work.)
3. WordPress Family – I cannot find the origin of this award, sorry. Here’s the rules: 1) Display the award logo on your blog. 2) Link back to the person who nominated you. 3) Nominate 10 others you see has having an impact on your WordPress experience and family. 4) Let your 10 family members know you have awarded them.
