The Liebster Award - Bake Then Eat

The Liebster Award

At first when I got this nomination for the Liebster award I was a little baffled, I had only been blogging for such a short time, what was all this about? After a little time spent on google I realised it’s just a fun way to share some information with fellow bloggers and share a little of the blog love around so I thought why not. If nothing else it helps others discover new and exciting blogs and maybe some new readers and followers for others.
