The Liebster Award!

For anyone new to the blogging community, joining in can be a little intimidating. On almost every post, website and YouTube video it's mentioned that in order to have a successful blog you have to engage with other bloggers. If you've only just started writing it can be so hard to take that first step and start a conversation. A little helping hand, however, never goes amiss!

This is why The Liebster Award is such a great concept! It's so wonderful to be nominated, and to feel as though someone, somewhere is reading and appreciating your writing. It's such a brilliant way to make friends and connections in the blogging community! I was nominated by the wonderful Faz, who you might recognise from her guest post!
Here are the rules:
  1. Post 11 facts about yourself
  2. Answer the 11 questions from your nominator
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers (and tell them they’ve been nominated)
  4. Ask them 11 questions
  1. The first book I ever read was Peter Rabbit, and I used to know it more or less by heart
  2. I started blogging when I was about 14, I had a blogs about sewing, books and my 'philosophical' thoughts... none of them still exist.
  3. I'm really scared of the dark
  4. I always have an internal conflict going on about whether I'm a dog or a cat person (I love them both)
  5. I really like rock climbing and normally climb about once a week
  6. I'm a huge Norwich City supporter
  7. I have a cockerel called Napoleon
  8. I've ran down an active volcano in Nicaragua
  9. I have 5 ear piercings
  10. I hate getting up after 9am
  11. My favourite meal is Noodle Soup

My Responses!

What do you like most about your blog?

I really like how it looks haha! I spent ages making my header 😂.

How do you like to spend a Monday morning?

With a cup of tea! Preferably also with nice weather, because it always puts me in a good mood!

Is there something that never fails to brighten your mood?

Seeing my boyfriend Rob- I know, how cliché. Also a cup of tea, cake and my friends!

If you could pick one fictional person to be your best friend, who would you choose?

This is so hard.. I think it would have to be Jane from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

Where do you see your blog in five years’ time?

I have no idea, I guess I just hope it's successful and people still want to read it!

Which is your favourite social media platform?

Twitter! I love having chats with people!

Do you prefer holidays where you can relax, or holidays filled with activities?

I like a mix of the two- I get bored with too much relaxing but exhausted with too much activity!

What’s your favourite opening line of a book?

"There was once, in the country of Alifbay, a sad city, the saddest of cities, a city so ruinously sad that it had forgotten its name. It stood by a mournful sea full of glumfish, which were so miserable to eat that they made people belch with melancholy even though the skies were blue..."

 - Haroun and The Sea of Stories - Salman Rushdie

Coca Cola or Pepsi?

I don't really like either, but I'd have to go with Pepsi.

Has your blogging style changed since you first started out?

I think so! It's a lot less formal now 😂.

Do you believe in horoscopes?

Not really, but that doesn't mean I won't still read them haha!

Your Turn!
I nominate Chloe, Millie, Ellie, Francine, Nicole, Sarah, Lii, Kayleigh, Kirsty, Katie and Zoey! Make sure you check out all of their wonderful blogs and give them some love!
