The Liebster Award!

The Liebster Award!

I have received my first ever blogging award! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was when I found out that I had been nominated by fellow blogger Sarah Ball, who blogs over at Jolly Good Cake Club. Thank you Sarah.

To receive an award when I have only been blogging for a short while is the best thing ever and its pink, which will make Alice happy.

In case you are wondering the Liebster Award is an award given by a blogger to a blogger. Liebster means beloved in German and I am feeling the love.

Sarah was given eleven questions to answer for her nomination, she answered them all and then has to give me and the other nominees eleven question to answer. It’s a really great way for bloggers to connect and support each other, which is only a good thing in my book.

Here they are, Sarah’s questions and my answers…

  1. What motivated you to start blogging? I first thought about starting a blog three years ago, but I wasn’t brave enough to give it ago. The thought never went away and after some encouragement from my husband and the need to do something for me, I took the plunge. I love it and I kick myself for not doing it sooner.
  2. What’s your favourite type of cake? Hands down, Lemon drizzle cake.
  3. What’s your dream job? I don’t really have a profession or particular job that I dream of doing. What I do dream of doing, is something that I love, something that I am passionate about, something that is for me, whilst supporting and meeting my families needs.
  4. What’s the last thing you do before going to bed? Read my book, most of the time I only read about five minutes before I fall asleep. It takes me ages to finish a book these days. But, I love to read and I try really hard to make it a part of life anyway I can.
  5. Which social media site helps your blog the most? Twitter is where I get the most traffic to my blog. I love the comments I get on Facebook from people and having a chat.
  6. What’s your favourite time of year? Summer, not just because hopefully we will get some sun. But, because all our birthday’s are in the summer and its full of parties and cake!
  7. If you wrote a book, what would it be about? I have always felt there was a book inside me, waiting to come out. I often come up with a storyline in my mind and it is always about friendship.
  8. Crisps or chocolate? Chocolate
  9. What’s the worst thing about blogging? At the moment feeling like the new girl at school, waiting to see if you are going to be accepted into the club.
  10. If you have another job apart from ‘blogger’ what do you do? I don’t at the moment, I am home with my two girls.
  11. The ballet or a rock concert? Neither really, but if I was pushed, it would be…no, even if I was pushed I can’t!

Now, for who I am going to nominate…This is for newish bloggers and there are a few lovely bloggers that I would like to nominate, who I think are fab!

  1. Squished Blueberries
  2. Life is Knutts
  3. Hot Pink Wellingtons

If you accept my nomination, here are my eleven questions for you to answer:

  1. How did you decide on your blog name?
  2. What is your favourite blog post you have written?
  3. Tea or coffee?
  4. What can’t you leave the house without?
  5. What do you love most about blogging?
  6. What’s your favourite colour?
  7. Where would you go on holiday, if money was no object?
  8. What did you have for breakfast?
  9. Tell us something that not many people know about you?
  10. Which social media site is your favourite?
  11. Where’s your favourite place to shop and why?

So, all that is left for me to tell you is to thank the blog that nominated you (that’s me) in your blog post.

Have fun and if you take part let me know so I can read you post!

    It’s always fun to find out a bit more about bloggers and what inspired them to start. I can definitely agree about falling asleep over my book too, the last thing I do every night too.

      Its so annoying isn’t it, I really want to finish my book!!

    Thanks so much for the nomination! I love reading these posts – it’s always lovely to get a bit of an insight into some of my favourite bloggers (and you’ve nominated a couple of my other favourite blogs too!) I can relate to your ‘new girl’ feelings too – although the parent blogging community is really welcoming, there’s always that sense when you’re a newbie, isn’t there?

      Your welcome lovely. It is really welcoming, but yes there is that sense, I feel awkward and trying to find my place and tribe x

    Your answer to the last question made me giggle! 😉 I can go to both, but I can understand why some wouldn’t want to go to either… Oh and but you are very much part of the blogosphere already. The day you published your first post, made you part of the blogging world already 🙂

    Oh that is what Liebster means!! I had been wondering for so long 🙂 Enjoyed reading this – the one part which made me nod my head the most was where you mention reading every night…for 5 mins before falling asleep – me exactly! x

    • 05/04/2016 / 22:06

      Ha Ha! It seems you are not alone 🙂 Its annoying isn’t it, I really want to read more x

    I love this – I never knew that was what Liebster meant! I am a Lemon Drizzle cake fan too!! yuuuummmm! H x

    Aw hun you are not the new girl anymore for we all love and accept you into the warm snuggly nest of the blogger fold. A big hello from me x

  7. 05/04/2016 / 12:47

    I always really like to read about other bloggers so I really enjoyed this 🙂 I think we are such a nice community, everyone is passionate about what they do and curious about life in general. I’m fairly new to blogging properly myself but I do feel at home with other bloggers. And I’m definitely a chocolate person too 🙂

    Such a lovely idea. Lemon drizzle is my favourite cake too. I would also pick chocolate over crisps any day. It’s also great to know what leibster meant as I had no ide x

    • 05/04/2016 / 21:47

      It seems a lot people didn’t know what it meant! Lemon drizzle is seriously the best! x
