2013 Liebster Blog Award!

        The first time I heard or noticed the Liebster Blog Award was when Uchenna Ezeonyeka (natural and healthy) and KLP (Saving Our Strands) nominated me (Thanks ladies!). I researched and researched (Google search). I learned The Liebster Award is a blogger to blogger award chain letter that allows readers to get to know just a tad bit more about other bloggers that they follow. There are many different rules I came across. I'm going to stick with these:
  1. Thank and link back to the blogger(s) who presented the award to you
  2. Paste the award on your blog
  3. Each person must post 11 random things about themselves (optional).
  4. Answer the 11 questions that the tagger set for you.
  5. Choose 5 bloggers who you would like to give the Liebster Award (they have less than 200 followers)
  6. Let the recipients know about their nomination by leaving a comment on their blogs.
  7. Create 11 questions for the bloggers you have tagged with the award to answer.

KLP's questions: 
1. Why did you start blogging?
       I had a lot of free time and it is so much easier to track my hair's progress.

       Shorty2Sweet59. Years ago I watched her video and learned about texlaxing. Her hair left me in awe!
