The very lovely Michelle over at mum from the heart has nominated me for the Liebster Award for new bloggers and I must say a very big sorry for taking so long to get around to posting this! But here it is, I am very grateful to have been nominated and to also get the chance to nominate up to 5 other fabulous bloggers!
This is a great way to get to know other bloggers and to put your own blog out there. I have been blogging for just over a year now, and am still learning a whole lot! I am really enjoying blogging, and have really loved getting to meet new bloggers along the way. Blogging has opened up a whole new world, and as mum has been invaluable for me!
So lets get started! The rules are as follows;
Once nominated you need to answer the questions of the blogger who nominated you and then pass the nomination onto 5 other bloggers with less then 200 followers! Pretty easy and simple really and alot of fun!
So a big thankyou for my nomination Mish, here are my answers to your questions!
1. What is your dream holiday destination?
I have always wanted to go to greece. Visit the Greek Islands. They just look so beautiful! I have been to alot of places on my travels. Two of my favourite places I have visited are Ireland and Barcelona. I love different cultures and I have met some really lovely greek people and visiting there is on my to do list one day, but may have to wait untill my two boys are a bit older.
2. What is your go to song to lift your spirits when you are feeling low?
Ah, this is tricky. It really depends on why I am feeling low! I don’t really have a go to song, more of bands or artists i like! But i do love a bit of old school cold chisel, Jimmy Barnes…blame my dad for those influences!! I do love Delta Goodrem,
3. What is your favourite board game?
Oh do I just have to choose one? oh I am a sucker for board games…. I love The Game of Life, Monopoly, guess who. I am super excited my son is reaching the age where he can start playing them with me! I brought him Snakes and ladders, that’s also another good one.
4. What is your inspirational motto?
Once again, it depends on the inspiration I need at the time. But mainly I use simple ones like “you got this!” “you can do this” ” every moment is a fresh beginning”
5. How do you keep a work/blog/life balance
I don’t! haha, its true. As you can see it has taken me months to get around to doing this Liebster Awards post and while i’m typing my 8 month old is in the background crying because I have put him down so i can type it up! Unfortunately since my youngest one has come along, my blog has suffered a lot. I am a stay at home mum, I am studying a diploma in Childcare online and look after 2 little boys! Trying to keep a balance is impossible, it has taken me a while to figure that out. I just take each day as it comes. I’ve put a lot of time into my study’s lately, so today its all about my blog and getting my washing done as Timmy is in preschool and its just me and my youngest today! That’s my balance, not having any balance!
So now it is my turn to nominate some great bloggers and ask some questions. Unfortunately I was not sure who to nominate and requested for people to let me know if they want to take part as I did not want to nominate people and their blogs if they did not want to take part. I only received one Response, so i’m just nominating the one. Thank you for taking part, hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Here goes!
My nominations are;
My Questions are;
- What advice would you give to fellow bloggers who are just starting out?
- What is your all time favorite food?
- If you could go back in time, what era would you choose and why?
- If you were given one super power what would it be?
- What is a skill you wish you had, but do not have?
I look forward to reading all your answers! I had a lot of fun typing this post, thanks again to Mish for the nomination.
