Liebster Award Nomination

I just receive an email that Danielle from Busy Little Brainiacs has nominated us for a Liebster Award!  The Liebster Award is a way bloggers spread the word about fellow bloggers whose blogs have fewer than 200 followers.  Once a blogger receives the award, he or she nominates other bloggers. So now it is our turn to nominate other bloggers who will benefit from some exposure.

Thank you Danielle. This is a great way to keep us newbies motivated and not to get discouraged.
To accept the nomination, I need to do the following:
  1. I'm linking back to Danielle at Busy Little Braniacs.
  2. I'm nominating 5 more blogs that have fewer than 200 followers. 
  3. I'm answering 11 questions created by Danielle.
  4. I'm listing 11 random facts about myself.
  5. I'm creating 11 questions for my nominees to answer. 
I'm nominating these lovely blogs for Liebster Awards. If you have already been nominated, I apologize and know that I found your blog worthy of repeating this award.
