  1. Congratulations on your award. 🙂 I can see your blog is fairly new, so very well done to you! I found you through Blogging 201 and am a new follower now. Do feel warmly invited to visit my blog, too, and maybe follow it back if you find something there to interest you. 🙂


  2. You are very welcome! The easiest way to handle the award (in my opinion) is to copy all of the text from my post and paste it into a new post on your blog. You can erase the name and link to the person who nominated me and enter my name and a link to my blog in that space. Since I used the award photo as my featured image, you may have to right click, save the picture to your PC, and then insert it somewhere in your blog post. After that you can delete my 11 random facts and enter 11 about you.Then you can delete my answers to the questions asked by the person who nominated me and enter your answers to the 11 questions that I asked you. You will also want to delete the 11 questions for my nominees and enter 11 questions of your choice for your nominees. Finally, you will want to find 11 blogs (with less than 200 followers) that you wish to nominate and replace my nominees at the bottom of the post with your own, adding the blog names and links to their pages. The very last thing is to publish the post and then go to each of your nominees blogs and let them know that you have nominated them. You can even copy and paste the comment that I left on your blog and replace the link to my post with a link to your post. If you prefer not to copy, paste, and delete so much, you can just follow the following instructions using whatever method works best for you.

    1. Post the award on your blog.

    2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.

    3. Write 11 random facts about yourself.

    4. Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.

    5. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.

    If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to let me know. It takes some time to complete all of the steps but I think it is worth it. It will help more people find your blog and likely result in more followers. Plus, having an award is always fun. 🙂
