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 so here it is.
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 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 questions 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
Here is my answer's to the question's that Emily asked me:
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 facebook and really enjoyed reading it. 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 a 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 and our family life. So everything I have written has either been a pregnancy update, an update on my girls or a day out that we have been on. I want my blog to be 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. I am so blaming the pregnancy hormones for that one.
5.)What's your best moment in life so far?
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 days of my life. I don't think anything can ever top the day's your children were born, it 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.
7.) What is your earliest memory?
Building a snowman when I was about three years old , I think that is my earliest memory any ways.
8.)What's your dream's for your little ones
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.
9.)If you could live anywhere where would that be?
I am really boring and I just want to live in Newcastle / Northumberland still. Just in a bigger house with lots of space for the girls to play, as our house is tiny. 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.
10.) Anything in life you regret?
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. 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
Hannah at buddingsmiles
Lisa at kidandcapers
Kristy at bump-and-me-plus-three
Samantha at northeastfamilyfun
