I have seen people mentioning the Liebster awards on twitter but as a new blogger i did not really know what it was. However a few days ago i got a tweet from the lovely Emily at EmilyandIndiana who had nominated me and my blog in her post. I loved reading Emily's post on this and i have been meaning to do my own post for the last few day's but i have just been so busy with my girls with it being the bank holiday weekend ,so sorry it is a few day's late.
As i did not really have a clue what the Liebster awards were i thought i better find out and found that it is a award given to a blogger by another blogger who likes there blog. It is a way of finding out a bit more about your favourite bloggers and also it is a way to promote other blog's that you love and also promote your own blog at the same time. The rule's to the Liebster award are as follows:
- Promote the person who has nominated you and link there blog in your post.
- Answer the question's giving to you by your nominee, then create a new list of 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
- Nominate your own 5-11 blog's that you feel deserve the award
- Inform them that they have been nominated for The Liebster Award and provide a link to your post so that they can learn about it
1.) Why did you decide to start blogging?
An old school friend of mine Samantha has a blog northeastfamilyfun and i followed her blog on face book and really enjoyed reading it (if you haven't checked it out then do its great and has even been nominated for a mad blog award) Even though i enjoyed reading her blog i did not know anything about blogging and never even thought of setting my own blog up. However from reading Samantha's blog i found lots of other blog's about pregnancy and as i had just recently found out i was pregnant i thought these were brilliant way's of recording pregnancy and childhood to look back on in years to come. I thought about it for a while and then in march 2014 i decided to set up my own blog so i could record my current pregnancy and my two girls childhood and i absolutely love it.
2.)What gives you your inspiration to write?
My blog is all about my current pregnancy with baby number three and my two girls Chloe and Sophia and are family life so everything i have written has either been a pregnancy update or a update on my girls or a day out that we have been on. I want my blog to be like a family photo album and a record of what we have been up to so that we can all look back on it in years to come. So my pregnancy and my girls are what inspires me to write.
3.) How would others describe you (in 3 word's)
I asked the other half and he said i am honest, friendly and huffy ( i blame the pregnancy hormones lol)
4.) Would you agree with the above?
Yes i would i think i am very honest as i don't think you should lie or mislead anyone although maybe i am a bit too honest at times. I like to think i am friendly and unfortunately i am quiet huffy at the moment but i am so blaming the pregnancy hormones for that one.
Without a doubt the best moment in my life so far is when i had both my girls, the day they were both born was the best day's of my life and i don't think anything can ever top the day's your children were born as it is so amazing and changes your life forever.
6.) Do you have any quotes / sayings that you live by?
No i don't have any although I'm thinking that maybe i should , so i will have to think of one someday.
Building a snowman when i was about three years old , i think that is my earliest memory any ways.
All i want for my girl's in life is to be happy, as long as they are happy and healthy that's all i care about. I want them to do what makes them happy whatever that may be and to enjoy life and achieve whatever dreams they may have.
I am really boring and i just want to live in Newcastle / Northumberland still. Just in a bigger house in a really nice area with lots of space for the girls to play as are house is tiny and there is nowhere for them to play other then the garden. I wouldn't want to move abroad or anything as i like being close to my family and i want my girls to grow up going to places me and the other half went to as children.
I think everyone in life has made mistakes and wishes they had not done things but i really believe that everything happens for a reason and that you should not dwell on the past and you should live in the here and now.
11.) Tell us something about you we might not know?
That's my answer's to Emily's questions and now maybe you all know me a bit better. I now nominate
