The Liebster Award – getting to know bloggers

The Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to get to know each other and to connect as well.

Special thanks to Mary for nominating me. You can read her post here.

The Rules

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and put a link to their post.
  • Answer the questions given to you.
  • Nominate bloggers and set questions for them to answer.
  • Don’t forget to let them know when the post goes live.

So the rules have been set, now it’s question time!

1) Who is your favourite blogger?

There’s some amazing bloggers too many to name. It really depends on my mood as to what I’ll be reading. I think the blogging community is so supportive and friendly I’ve been quite overwhelmed by the welcome I’ve been receiving!

2) How do you find inspiration to write your posts?

I get inspiration from all sorts of things really. It might be that I see someone post in one of the many Facebook groups I am a member of asking for advice and I’ll blog about that topic or it might be an experience I’ve had or another blog post I’ve enjoyed and have further to add.

3) When do you find time to write your blog posts?

I write when I can sometimes this is during my lunch break or when I have time at home. I always have a notebook near by so I can jot down ideas as and when they come to me if I’m not close to a laptop.

4) Name three thing you love about blogging. Why?

  • As mentioned above I love how supportive and friendly the blogging community are
  • I like sharing some (hopefully) pearls of wisdom with others
  • I love to write and share my thoughts and blogging is a great outlet for this.

5) If you could move anywhere in the world , where would you live?

I’m a real home bird who lived away from home for four years so now I’ve made it back to my native North East I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world.

6) What’s your favourite season?

I like the beginning of Autumn (fall) as the leaves start to change colour and the air turns a little crisper. I don’t like it as much when everything turns a little greyer and the ground gets mushy off the leaves.

7) Where do you see yourself in 7 years from now?

Difficult question. I’d like to still be happily married to my amazing husband and hopefully blessed with a child of our own. I’d also like to be settled at work with some further career development under my belt. I’d like to do more continued professional development and perhaps a formal qualification if time and money allows.

8) What is an ideal weekend for you?

Getting all the household chores done and dusted early. Spending some quality time with my husband. Spending time catching up with friends and a nice Sunday dinner with the family. That would be my ideal!

9) What is the grossest sounding English word?

Moist. Enough said.

10) Which movie sequel do you wish you could erase from history?

Blues Brothers 2000. Sequels filmed without a key cast member from the original almost always don’t work. Too many Blues Brothers definitely spoils the broth. It’s not a patch on the original which is still a firm favourite.

11) Which is your favourite movie ever?

I think this depends on my mood. I absolutely loved Titanic (cliché I know) but I love the Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption and Misery too.

My 11 questions:

1) Why did you start to blog?

2) How do you find inspiration to write your posts?

3) When do you find time to write your blog posts?

4) Name three thing you love about blogging. Why?

5) What would you say to your younger self if you could?

6) What’s your favourite food?

7) Where do you see yourself in 7 years from now?

8) What is an ideal weekend for you?

9) Where is your favourite holiday destination and why?

10) What is your favourite book and why?

11) What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

    Congratulations on your Liebster Award. What a fun Q&A! 🙂 I think everyone would love to get chores out the way as early as possible! Alas, no matter how quickly one completes them, there’s always more tomorrow. lol

    Love these ‘getting to know about you’ posts. Such a delightful insight into the blogger behind the blog, even if it is the first time you stumble across their blog, like I did today 🙂 I wish you all that and more 7 years and even 17 years from now. May you enjoy blogging and may you enjoy being with your husband for a long time to come.
