The Liebster Award Tag! // GENERAL

This is my first time being tagged so thank you Laiah for the Liebster Award!


It's essentially a tag for bloggers to get to know one another better and share a little blog love, similar to tags on YouTube. When I googled what the Liebster Awards were I found several descriptions from various blogs. The word "liebster" means 'dearest', 'sweetheart' or 'beloved' in German. It was started by a German blogger in 2010. There are multiple versions of the rules too but I think the general gist of it is getting to know other bloggers better and sharing some information about yourself.

I took the liberty of leaving out extraneous parts from the tag since it's been revised multiple times over the years. I know school is starting and we are all busy people so I can understand if the people I tagged don't really have time to do it. I think the best part of this is just recognizing new bloggers you like and showing them that you care. I think I had fun with it and I hope you do too! :]
