Hello! Welcome back to my blog! Katie at The Pretty Pineapple Co. nominated me for the Liebster Award. Now considering how new I am to this whole blogging thing, I didn’t even know about this award (I’m very informed), so I’m extremely shocked and grateful for this opportunity to share and spread the news about other blogs I love. So thank you very much Katie for the nomination!
How this works is that when you have been nominated by another blogger, you write a post thanking the blogger who nominated you as part of your acceptance, and then answer a few questions they have for you. You then nominate up to five bloggers with under 200 followers that you want to share with the world and create five questions for them to answer so the cycle can continue. Here are my questions I was asked to answer:
Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog as an escape. I wanted a place where I could be creative and put myself out there. I wanted to create content for more than just myself. No matter how many views a post of mine gets, it still lights a spark of pride in me knowing that someone is reading what I wrote. Somebody took the time to read what I have to say, and when I get a response and people leave comments relating to what I wrote about, it is such a rewarding feeling. That was my goal for starting this blog, to be able to use my voice, my words, to meet new people and express myself.
Who is someone that inspires you?
My sister inspires me. She has such a unique situation, something that not many people would understand. Someday I plan on sharing her story on this blog, but until then I will just mention her incredible strength. Her strength to get up out of bed every morning and go through her day with a huge smile on her face. She is so content with her life, when we all know things could be better if things were different, even though its all out of our and her control. She doesn’t dwell on it, and continues to live her life in her own loving way. I am blessed to call her my sister.
What’s something on your bucket list?
Something on my bucket list is to travel. Seems a bit unoriginal, but regardless its true. I have several places I want to go, but I am always scared it won’t happen. I have never flown on a plane and I don’t usually stray too far from home. When I began reading other blogs and seeing photos from places around the world, it reignited my desire to go through with my original plan and make sure I get to the places I want to see at some point, to take my own pictures, make my own memories, and see the sights with my own eyes.
What’s your dream job?
This is the hardest question for me, because I’m not sure what I want to do with my life yet. Another reason why I started this blog, as a little bit of self-discovery to help me figure out my future. I know a few things for sure, that I would love a job where I could help people. I love to write and take photos and I know there is a variety of different careers that could lead to, but I really don’t know yet. So my dream job is still to be determined.
Name 3 things that make you really happy.
Three things that make me really happy are spending time with my family, spending time with my friends, and capturing beautiful moments of these people when I’m with them on camera. A photo really is worth a thousand words in some cases, and when I’m not with the people I love, I have photos to keep me grounded. Just looking at these photos makes me incredibly happy, because I know that I’ll see them again soon. It makes it just a little easier to cope.
Thank you again to Katie for nominating me! Be sure to check out her blog here or the link in the first paragraph. Now I would like to nominate Moiline for her blog titled Spoken Thoughts and Devin at her blog titled 21 & Speechless.
These were two of the first blogs to read and respond to my content, and in return I began to read and relate to their incredible content. Check them out!
To accept your nomination, you both just have to answer these five questions I have for you:
- Why did you start your blog and was there a pivotal moment that pushed you to create your blog?
- What is your absolute favorite thing to write about?
- What are your favorite kind of blogs to read?
- What are your goals for your blog and do you see yourself blogging long term?
- What do you think is the best book or movie of all time?
Thanks for stopping by,
