The Liebster award is a kind of peer to peer recognition; a way of finding new and up coming bloggers with blogs currently registering 200 followers or under.
The blogger who nominates you gives you 11 questions which you must answer and then, in your response, you must nominate another 11 blogs who have less than 200 followers and let them know you have nominated them. The 11 blogs you nominate must receive 11 questions from you to answer. Finally you must link back to the person who nominated you.
As we’re fairly new to the world of blogging, we’re not yet in the know of all the hundreds of deserving blogs there are. The original Liebster award asked for between 3-5 nominations. So we will only be choosing 3 blogs as our nominations.
So, here’s for us to answer our questions as asked by Donna:
1. Why did you start blogging?
S: To be honest, I wanted to start blogging for something to do. Before having O, I led such a busy lifestyle & had become bored. Not being able to continue with my old hobbies (no, I wasn’t a lady of the night…), I thought I’d give blogging a go.
2 – What do you enjoy most about blogging?
S: Being able to say what I want to!
3 – Where do you get your inspiration for blogging from?
S: No idea! I think this will become more apparent in time.
4 – Who or what else has inspired you in life?
S: My mum & my mum-in-law. They are both very different but essentially the same. They have shown me to be confident in my decisions as a parent.
5 – Where do you see yourself in 10 years time? Do you think you’ll still be blogging?
S: Crikey. 10 years?! Sounds such a long time!! I have no idea if we’ll still be blogging. It would be nice to think we could!
6 – What’s your favourite biscuit?
S: Without a doubt, chocolate bourbon’s.
7 – What’s your favourite family day out?
S: Swimming, followed by lunch, followed by nap time…
8 – What tradition would you like to pass down to your children?
S: Wearing brand new pyjamas to bed and setting out a carrot, mince pie & glass of wine for santa.
9 – If you could change one thing about your life what would it be?
S: That our friends lived closer. They are an awesome bunch of people.
10 – What would be the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery?
S: Pay off our mortgage. Boring, I know, but that would leave us with no debts and then an opportunity to help other family members, go on holidays, etc!
11 – What’s one thing you think your readers should know about you?
S: I’m the serious one in our marriage…
