Life has it’s twists and turns and so my blog has been on the back burner for a while until I got a notification on my Twitter from Lou at Northern Interior Girl. She’d nominated me for a Liebster Award! I love these things, questions and answers that get you thinking and finding out more about other bloggers, it gave me reason to get typing and try and get things back on track!
So thank you Lou, hopefully I’ll get my mojo back from doing this, it feels like it’s come at the right time 🙂
It’s my second nomination this year, so I know how it works, but if you’re not sure here’s how…
The rules for the Liebster Award are:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
- Use the Liebster Award image within your blog post.
- Answer the 11 questions that the blogger who nominated you set.
- Nominate 11 other new bloggers whose work and blog page you admire.
- Ask them 11 questions.
Here’s the questions Lou asked me:
Why do you love to blog?
I’ve been blogging on and off for years. I was also a music writer and photographer in a previous life. I guess I enjoy new experiences, trying new things and sharing them with others.
A couple of years ago, my mental health was at an all-time low. I needed an outlet to focus on, so I deleted my old blog and restart a brand new one, that’s this. Since then I have learned to enjoy life more and get involved with a variety of things, sometimes you need to push yourself and blogging certainly makes me do just that!
Also, I’ve met some amazing people through social networking. I enjoy reading about other peoples like, seeing their recommendations and getting to know them.
Where would be the one place you would want to visit in the world?
I would travel through Australia and New Zealand. I’ve visited Oz before. I’d really like to catch up and spend time with friends and family who live out there. Of course, there’s the sun, sand and sights to see too
Who is your favourite celebrity crush?
Ooh, celeb crush! This is a tough one! I don’t know if he’s really a celeb, but I do have a thing for Nick Helm the comedian. He’s funny, talented and interesting but do I fancy him? I’m not quite sure!
What is your favourite Movie you have seen in the last year?
I’m not a huge movie goer. The last film I did see at the cinema was Trainspotting 2, I am going to see the new Blade Runner soon, but I do need to watch the original first!
What is your favourite hobby?
I have a few things I enjoy doing. I love baking, sewing, photography and more recently I’ve found something I’d love to make a hobby and that’s acrylic jewellery making. I recently attended a necklace making course and loved it! I’ll be posting about it soon.
Do you spend time reading other blogs?
I do! I really enjoy other people’s style of writing and reading about the things they enjoy. I also love watching people develop in confidence as a blogger and see the opportunities come their way.
There’s some really talented bloggers out there, it’s not all about those with the big names or loads of followers, but that’s the same of anyone with a talent.
Is music important to you?
I love music. I love listening to it, going to gigs and festivals. I enjoy finding new music as well as rediscovering bands and artists I’ve not listened to for a while!
I really enjoy making playlists too, my iTunes has several for different moods and moments – I even have a going to work playlist!
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I love where I live. Sheffield is a wonderful city. I’ve moved around a bit, but always end up home! So, I think I’d chose there or somewhere warmer but I haven’t decided on that yet, maybe somewhere Mediterranean!
Do you like pets?
I love cats! I’m a crazy cat lady, well no not really. I have one, he’s called Tony and he’s my fur baby!
Last exhibition you went to?
Erm, I can’t remember, it’s been a while! There was one I went to as it had free wine, does that count? The one with free wine!
What is one of your lifetime goals you would like to share?
My lifetime goal, whoooaaa! Without going too deep, it’s simply for those close to me and my family to be happy.
