Liebster Award 2017

Loading my emails earlier I was amazed to see one announcing my nomination for the Liebster Award 2017 from the lovely Bexa. I’ve only been blogging for a week and Bexa is one of the people here on WordPress who has made me feel welcome and not so intimidated to just ‘give it a go’. Her blog is just as inspiring as her thoughtfulness, so make sure to check it out!

Now, onto the award: passed from blogger to blogger to promote connections in the blogging community, first eleven questions from the person who nominated you have to be answered, then a new set of questions have to be written for your nominees.

The questions from Bexa:

What inspired you to start blogging?

I think the main reason I started this blog was to have a creative outlet, and also a place to write for the sake of writing. Carefree writing that’s not marked against anyone else’s criteria in a community where I can be inspired by others.

If you had ยฃ500 to spend solely on blogging how would you spend it?

I’d use the money for plane tickets to somewhere inspiring to blog about.

How did you come up with the name of your blog?

It’s pretty self explanatory, this blog is basically an online journal of my thoughts and life.

Have you ever visited somewhere just because you read about it in someone’s blog?

I read a lot of blogs when I was planning my trip around the world last year, so I’m sure I got inspiration for all of the places I visited. Perhaps the most influential was the stuff I read about hiking in Hawaii, that really captured my imagination.

What is your favourite non-blog website?

Probably Netflix or Youtube.

Besides blogging, what are your other passions and interests?

I love photography, travelling and watching Scandinavian crime box sets.

What is your favourite book?

Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Where would you like to go on holiday next?

I’m really craving a winter getaway right now, like a cosy cottage holiday.

What film can you watch over and over again?

‘Ferris Bueler’s Day Off’ for a feel-good film or ‘Spirit’ from my childhood.

Are you doing Blogmas this year?

Maybe, I haven’t decided yet! I love the idea though.

What are your future dreams and aspirations for your blog?

To just keep writing and see what direction my blog goes in.

 

My eleven questions are:

What made you start blogging?

What motivates you to keep blogging?

What is your biggest passion, besides blogging?

If you didn’t blog, what creative hobby would you do instead?

What is your favourite tv series?

What blog post have you read recently and really loved?

Where would be your dream place to live?

Who inspires you the most?

What’s your favourite season?

Where do you see your blog going in the future?

Has blogging changed the way you see things in your everyday life?

 

I haven’t been on WordPress long so I’m not yet following that many blogs, but so far my nominations would be:
