  2. You need to answer the questions that the nominator asks.
  3. Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.
  4. Choose 11 other blogs you love with fewer than 200 followers to nominate and link them in your post.
  5. You cannot “tag back” the other blog, but leave a comment on this post with the URL of your Liebster post so I can learn more about you and see who you nominate.
