In blogging

Libster Award

Jenny from Jenny Dora Explorer nominated me for the Libster Award back in May. Thank you so much for nominating me I know I am really really really slow to reply to this, but I promised myself I would, so here I am 5 months later writing my response. Whooops!
I have won the Libster award before and it is a really good way of discovering new blogs. 

A little bit about the Libster Award, I am not too sure who set it up or where it came from but I would best discribe it as an electronic chain mail. You write something about yourself and nominate several bloggers for the award. You don't actually win anything, but I guess what you do win is the previlage of being able to put the Libster Button on your blog. 

So to accept my nomination I have a few fun challenges to complete...
