The Liebster Award 2017 - Another Nomination!

Hey People,

I have been fortunate enough to receive not one, but two nominations for the Liebster Award again.  If you have gone through my previous Liebster award nomination post, you must have a better understanding on what the Liebster award is about.  And if you haven't read that yet, don’t worry, I will tell you what it is.

The Liebster award (Global Aussie Liebster Award) is an online award given by bloggers to other bloggers that helps to spread the love and this is how bloggers acknowledge other bloggers they think are fabulous.  Once you have been nominated, you are given a set of questions to answer and then you get to "pass it on" to other bloggers.

Liebster is a German word which means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Shout out to “Willjohn Zoleta” and “Sravanya” and big thanks for taking the time to check out my site and nominate me.  I am so excited and honored to receive these nominations again.  Willjohn Zoleta loves to travel.  He has visited about 35 countries so far.  His travel blog “Adventurous Will” provides insights into the countries he visits.  On the other hand, Sravanya is crazy about makeup and shopping.  Her blog “Hyderabad Beauty Blog” is related to beauty, health, and Fashion where she reviews products and gives health tips.

Without further ado, let’s get into the nitty-gritty.
