Thank you Devika Fernando for nominating my website for this interesting award. Its lovely to see bloggers promote bloggers!
If you want to know what ‘Liebster’ stands for, well, it is a German word, and you can read more about it in Lorraine Reguly’s post. She has also posted a lot of very fascinating history about the award – well worth a read!
Broadly, the rules are:
1. Link back and thank the blogger who nominated you in your post.
2. List 11 facts about yourself.
3. Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
4. Pick 5 – 10 new bloggers (each must have less than 300 followers) to nominate and ask them 11 new questions. Do not re-nominate the blogger that nominated you.
5. Go to each new blogger’s site and inform them of their nomination.
We have the choice to accept this nomination, and continue it by paying it forward. Of course, we can also politely decline it.

Physician writers themselves, they believe that the two abilities, writing fiction and practicing medicine, are inextricably linked.
There is tons of literature on ‘lip-locking-for-first-timers’ written by self-professed gurus. This self-help, do-it-your-self manual is different because it is written for women by a woman. Thus, it addresses every woman’s first-kiss fears, and has practical tips that will bring home the bacon lips.
