Liebster Award

10 Sep

I was delighted recently when Hannah from MakingBoysMen gave my blog The Liebster Award. Then a few days later Amy from inspire imagination through creation nominated me! Thank you so much to both of you.

The Liebster Award is given to bloggers, by bloggers. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it is a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers!

I have to admit that I didn’t really know what this was so I googled it and found two different results. Half were saying that you just need to choose another 5 blogs to nominate and the other half said you need to nominate 11 blogs and set them 11 questions and answer 11 questions set to you. The later option seems like a lot of hard work but these were the rules set for me so I shouldn’t really break them. Having said that, I’ve decided to pick just 6 blogs to forward the award to. Partly because the majority of the blogs I follow are big ones with higher than 200 followers. Although most blogs don’t say how many followers they have so if I’ve nominated you and you have over 200 followers than sorry (and congratulations).

So here are the 6 blogs I’m nominating.

feathered nest studio

Tea for monkeys

knitty mummy

Ink spots and grass stains

create with your hands

Jennifer’s little world

Here are my answers to the questions set to me by Hannah.

1 – Are you an early bird or a night owl? neither now I have kids but I used to be a night owl

2 – All time favourite song? very difficult to pick one but I would probably go with ELO Mr Blue Skies

3 – All time favourite movie? The Towering Inferno – you can’t beat a 1970s disaster movie!

4 – What’s your earliest memory? I have a few memories of nursery school

5 – What was your best holiday ever? my honeymoon in Canada. Although I’ve had some pretty amazing times in Cornwall too

6 – What superhero would you be? anyone who can fly

7 – If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would it be? Brie – it was so difficult when I was pregnant and couldn’t eat any

8 – In the movie of your life what actor would play you? Carey Mulligan

9 – Do you have any party tricks? no! I must work on getting some

10 – Do you have a pet preference for dogs or cats? cats, I’ve never owned a dog

11 – What three things would you take to a desert island? a camera, paper and pens

And if I’ve nominated you and you want to play along, then here are your questions.

1.How long have you been blogging for?

2.Where is your favourite place in the whole wide world?

3.What is your favourite bar of chocolate?

4.Have you ever broken a bone?

5.When was the last time you went on a child free night out with your partner (if you have one)?

6.What was your first job?

7.How many toilets do you have in your house?! (I only have 1 and am very jealous when people have more!)

8.What is your favourite season?

9.What is your favourite children’s book?

10.Do you get a real or fake Christmas tree?

11.How many siblings do you have?

      Sorry I should have really included the ‘rules’. Apparently When you receive the award you link to the person who nominated you then answer their eleven questions. You pass the award onto eleven other blogs, (make sure you let them know they were nominated) and ask them eleven questions. You are not allowed to nominate the blog that nominated you. This should all be done on your blog.
      It’s very complicated isn’t it?!
