I've Been Nominated For The Liebster Award!

What's good CPwRites Fam?


I woke up to a beautiful surprise this morning. I was nominated for the The Liebster Award! It's a peer recognition award for new and upcoming bloggers. I am truly grateful to @Pernille_ba NILY for recognizing the work that I've been putting in. This nomination couldn't have come at a better time as I was in need of some external motivation to push through the upcoming week.


Here are the rules of the nomination:

1)Thank the blogger who nominated you.

2)Answer the questions from the person who nominated you.

3)Nominate 5-11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

4)Tell your nominees through social media.

5)Ask 11 new questions for your nominees.


CpwRites is now approaching month 10 and it has had a quite a few ups and downs. Nevertheless I am really grateful for this recognition and I want to nominate the following bloggers, simply because their blogs all serve a similar purpose, that is, to enlighten the world and encourage others to be their best selves.
