Liebster Award!

I rarely talk about myself on MarCom Land but I thought I would make an exception for this post. MarCom Land has been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Jacky at Keep Calm and Blog On.

Some Background on the Liebster Award

It’s quite an interesting award considering there are no “real” judges, no “official” rules, and from my quick search-not even a website dedicated to it. I’m not even sure of its origins, besides the fact it’s obviously German.
But I love the idea of bloggers nominating other blogs that they love, hence why I’m participating. So thank you, Jacky, for the award and congrats to the following blogs that I am now nominating for the Liebster Award! I read a lot of blogs so this was a tough choice; the rule that they had to have less than 3,000 readers made it a little easier :)
