Liebster Award Nomination

I have been nominated THREE times for the Liebster award this week. Can you believe that? Three of you wonderful, intelligent, insightful bloggers have thought enough of my little blog to nominate it. I am all astonishment.

I can’t answer forty four questions, my followers would drop off a cliff with the boredom of Nicola’s world, so I have chosen the question set that my nosey self would most like to know about other people, and then completely plagiarised it for my own purposes to make my own nominations.

The rules:

  1. Make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.
    Include the Liebster Award sticker in the post too.
  2. Nominate 5 -10 other bloggers who you feel are worthy of this award. Let them know they have been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can also nominate the person who nominated you.
  3. Ensure all of these bloggers have less than 200 followers.
  4. Answer the eleven questions asked to you by the person who nominated you, and make eleven questions of your own for your nominees or you may use the same questions.
  5. Lastly, COPY these rules in your post.

Firstly, the lovely people who nominated me are below and you can click through to the answers to their question set too:

Dr Meg – Author and chiropractor extraordinaire.

Words, Coffee & Lace Dresses – Super organised law student who gives me diary envy.

A Smith’s World – A wonderful blog full of short stories and life insights.

So, for the questions:

What was the most inspiring book you read?

Any book that I read as a child inspired me, stories that you read whilst young become a part of your life. For me, the Dr Doolittle books were my go-to hideaway world (I started this introversion thing early – see this post)

What song gets you “pumped”?

SuperMassive Black Hole by Muse.

How have you created meaning in your life?

My children became my meaning the minute they were born.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on an as yet untitled novel, I’m trying out my third genre to see how it fits with my writing style, so far I don’t hate it and I’ve learnt that I really like writing from the antagonist’s POV. I am a dark human.

Any other interests besides writing/ blogging?

I read extensively, I’ve got three books on the go at the minute and I always have an audiobook on in the car. I also get an urge to start running about four times a year and then give up.

What is you favourite time of the year?

It’s a toss up between Spring and Autumn – but I think Autumn might just have the edge.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

The buzz of the interaction, meeting other bloggers has been a blast, especially for Blogging 101.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

I believe that people think they fall in love at first sight.

Are you multi-lingual or know parts of a few others?

To my shame, no. I’d love to be able to speak other languages fluently but I only speak snippets of French and Spanish.

If you had live this life again on repeat, would you?

Yes! I love my life, I try not to do anything that would make me or others unhappy so there’s nothing I’d want to change, other than losing loved ones but that goes without saying.

Who was your first follower on WordPress?

My first follower on WordPress was The Girl in The Little Black Dress, nine months and three weeks ago – thank you Natalie!

I’d like to nominate the following bloggers for the Liebster Award for their unwavering support and fabulousness:

  1. Honestme363

    Haha! I would have been your fourth nomination this week but you beat me to it ☺ calling dibs on giving you the sunshine blogger award ☺ you will just have to wait a bit for the post, my wee one is sick ☺


  9. I’m not surprised you got nominated 3 times! Great blog! I will answer your questions here, because people are going to get sick of me otherwise! 🙂 So here goes:
    1. Moat inspiring book: The Kite Runner
    2. A song that get me pumped: The Middle by Jimmy Eat World
    3. I create meaning in my life by volunteering when I can and by being a good friend to those close to me
    4. I’m editing the paper proof of my second novel and finishing the first draft of the 4th in the series.
    5. My interests outside of writing: Besides reading too? I love to cook and I love to feed my friends!
    6. My favorite time of year is autumn. I love the colors and cooler weather! Summers where I live are very humid and uncomfortable.
    7. I have enjoyed blogging because it has connected me with so many wonderful, creative people! Not just other writers, but photographers, crafters, travelers and foodies!
    8. I totally believe in love at first sight! I fell for my husband the minute I laid eyes on him!
    9. I speak a little French and Spanish. Enough to ask for directions, order off a menu and find out where the bathroom is!
    10. If I had this life to live over I would definitely rather have a blank slate to start over rather than a repeat button! So many mistakes early on 😦
    11. My first follower on WordPress was WeGeekGirls, thanks ladies!

    So glad to get to know you better Nicola!

    Thanks for the nomination Nicola 🙂
    I loved reading about you. I feel these awards not just serve to increase camaraderie but also bring us more in touch with each other as we learn more about each other via these questions.

    I would create a post after consolidating some other nominators so that I don’t have to create too many posts just for awards.

    Have a wonderful day tomorrow,
