Elizabeth from Quite Contrary ( elegsabiff.wordpress.com ) kindly nominated me for an A to Z Liebster Award on the 7th of April and then for the Team Member Readership Award on the 16th. I tried to find 11 A to Z blogs with definitely less than 200 followers and who had not already been nominated but the task defeated me so I am combining the awards. I’m about to set up a new page for answering the 11 questions set by Elizabeth for the Liebster and defining a “good reader” for the TMRA. Some of the 11 random facts about me will come from the blogs I have written for the challenge. I’ll nominate for the TMR Award those Challenge participants who commented on my brand new blog at least twice (won’t add up to the obligatory 14) and if they fit the criteria for the A to Z Liebster I would like them to accept that from me at the same time. However, apparently the original rules for the Liebster only mentioned nominating 3 blogs in return for accepting your award and I cannot find a satisfactory explanation for why this grew to 11 so it will be up to the recipients to choose a number they feel comfortable with or, of course, reject the award entirely if nominating people and providing 11 answers and 11 random facts is not how they want to spend their time.
