So, I’m going to take this post a little off track compared to normal.
The week before last was another extremely exciting week! I was nominated for another award—- not once, but, TWICE!
The first award is the Liebester Award. I was nominated by a fellow blogger, Lisa, over at Lisa Designs Life. Lisa is an extremely talented blogger. She is a huge motivation for me and such an inspiration. I love keeping up with her posts, especially about organization. I have wrote a guest post for Lisa before and we plan to, hopefully, get her to share some tips with my readers here, once time allows. She also shares about great ways to decorate your house. I know I love seeing those unique things she finds and how she gets to display the pieces. Make sure to check her out and stay up to date with her! You can find her on a lot of social media tracks. So, thank you Lisa, for always providing motivation and wonderful ideas.
In order to accept this “Award”, nominees have to answer the following:
- On your blog, thank the blogger who nominated you for this award.
- Link back to the blogger that awarded you.
- Upload the award to your blog. This can be done by writing a post about the award and uploading the award image in your sidebar.
- Answer the questions you have been asked by your nominator in a blog post so we can get to know you better.
- Nominate at least 5 blogs with less than 200 followers that you believe deserve to receive this award.
- Notify the owners of the blogs that you’ve nominated them so they can accept their award. Bloggers can be nominated more than once, giving their readers more chances to learn more about them.
Lisa shared these questions with me and I am required to answer them:
- What was the reason you started a blog?
Honestly, I started blogging as a creative outlet. I wanted to share our story dealing with infertility, a complicated pregnancy and living the crazy life of new parents. I like to talk, as I’m sure you know. So, I also share organization hacks (Thanks OCD), talk about fertility and infertility and share some recipes (just because I can).
- How did you choose your niche?
The primary part of the niche is parenting and sharing our infertility story. I wanted to share a success story and be available for support. I know many people that are in our shoes and having an extra support system always helped.
- What is your best piece of advice for a new blogger?
Blogging is all about trial and error about what works for you. You can read a million how to blog articles or skim through a hundred blogging income reports to see what works for other people, in other niches. But, your blog, your niche, may be different. Not every piece of information out there is going to work for you. Just don’t give up and keep trying.
- What is your all-time favorite movie?
This is a hard one. But, I’m going o have to say anything Harry Potter related. The books were such a big part of my childhood. So, even though I still love the books more, the movies are great and bring me back to that time in my life.
- If money was not a concern, where would you go for your dream vacation?
I have a long bucket list for traveling. I’d love to go to Australia and New Zeland. I think that’s my dream vacay. I still want to go to England (especially to see the HP set and visit Burnley, England — my maiden name) I’d also love to go back to Hawaii and visit Alaska. Ireland is on the list. All Inclusives in a beachy area will always be a hit in my book too.
So, now that I’ve gotten all of that out of the way…. I’m so happy to nominate the following five people for the Liebester Award! These are bloggers you need to check out. They post relevant, useful and exciting posts. They’re fun to keep up with and great for motivation and support. I highly recommend subscribing to them on all social media platforms. You can thank me later 😉 I’m always following these ladies and totally love them!
*1. Mummy Confessions – Amanda
*2. Halfpint Party Designs – Brianna
*3. Momma To Go – Harmony
*4. Christine Keys – Christine
*5. Real Mom Recs – Caitlin
My set of questions for these lovely ladies are the same I was asked! Can’t wait to see your responses girlfriends!
The second award I was nominated for the week before last, was The Blogger Recognition Award. I greatly appreciate being nominated for this award, again. I felt very honored. This time, I was nominated for this award by Kara from A Mama In the Making. I was already nominated for this award and you can find out more about what the award entails and who I nominated in this post. I’m so thankful to have been nominated for this again. Keep up the motivation Kara!
A big thanks to all who are keeping us informed in the blogging world. Congrats to all who have been nominated and I look forward to your acceptance posts.
