I woke up this morning to read the wonderful news that I had been nominated for this award. I’ve just enjoyed completing blogging101 at WordPress university, which was educational, inspirational and fun. This is the icing on the cake.
Thank you to https://paypackandfollow.wordpress.com/ for the kind nomination.
This award is intended to spread the love, and encourage growth, and is supported by the following rules:
- Display the Liebster award on your blog.
- Thank and link back to your nominator.
- Answer the nominator’s 11 questions.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers with about 200 or fewer followers and link to them.
- Draft 11 new questions for your nominees.
- Notify your nominees via their blogs or social media.
Right down to business. I have been asked the following questions:
1.How do you fit blogging into your life?
With a shoe horn! Working full time and other interests (like eating and sleeping) limit the time available, but I’m trying to build it into a regular routine. I have to be honest, there’s still some blogging101 homework I need to complete….
2.Do you spend more time posting on your own blog or looking at other blogger’s material?
It depends upon how inspired I’m feeling or if I’m looking for that inspiration. At it’s probably 50:50.
3.Vegemite, Promite, or Marmite? (Careful, – this could be a trick question!) :).
4.How have your friends and family reacted to your interest in blogging?
Hmm. It’s a bit of a secret. My husband knows and is a great proof reader, although he probably wishes that I didn’t disappear into my den so much….
5.If you had to spend a whole day inside a building, which one would it be?
Lincoln Cathedral. Our first visit reduced my husband and myself tears. It is so magnificent. I can only begin to imagine how it would have inspired wonder and awe when it was first built. We hope to return this year.
6.What gives you the most pleasure, – the journey or the destination?
The journey. I haven’t reached the destination yet, just stopping off here and there.
7.Where are you right now?
In my den (box room) at home, sitting on a rescued piano stool.
8.Who are your heroes?
My Mum, in her late eighties and still energetic and mischievous. So many musicians, and composers, so I’ll pick Michael Stipe. Where did he get those words from?
9.Why do you blog?
To get things out of my system, to share what I find funny, beautiful and/or inspiring, and to connect to the rest of the blogging network.
10.If you had to lose one of your senses, which would it be?
Oooh. Tough one, but probably touch. Might make geocaching difficult. And blogging. Hmm, not sure I know the answer to this.
11.Would you rather be a whale or a shark? (Definitely a trick question!).
A whale. Or maybe a whale shark?
Here are my nominees, in no particular order. I am aware that this award is moving around a bit at this time, so I make no apologies if you have already been awarded, I second that nomination!!
I know that the award is for new blogs and some of these are far from new, but they are new to me…
