2017 LIEBSTER AWARD
EnergyforMoms has recieved a 2017 Liebster Award!
The 2017 Liebster Award is an online award that gives recognition to new bloggers. Created by bloggers for bloggers, it’s a great way for new blogs to be discovered and promoted. Writing is just all the Social media managing, promoting and technical work can actually be quite hard. And this award recognizes this and provides bloggers a means to connect with other bloggers and help promote each other.
Who nominated me?
I was kindly nominated by Pennie from “Nature Mama”. Her goal is to help busy families find easy, healthy answers by writing about everyday tips, “real food” recipes, tutorials, health remedies and much more. I love her story about how after struggling to become a mom, she switched her focus to a healthy lifestyle, and then had a natural, healthy pregnancy!
Pennie thanks so much for nominating me! The recognition is so motivating, as is the opportunity to connect and network with other bloggers. Since I now get to nominate 5 other blogs myself for the award, I found other new bloggers who are working hard on an awesome topic and could use a little encouragement to just keep going.
Each blogger must nominate fellow bloggers with less then 200 followers. Here are my choices – Go check out their wonderful blogs!!!
Alicia – “Born to Freelance”
Layne – “Crafting a Beautiful Life”
