The Liebster Award

liebster awardSo, at the weekend, the lovely Things I Hate… Some I Like nominated me for The Liebster Award. It turns out this means I get to write a post about this recognition, in aid of helping people discover more awesome blogs. Cheers chica!

There are some rules…

  • Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them.
  • Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers.
  • Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
  • Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them

Here are the ten questions…

1: If you could be any historical figure who would you be?

I’ve been a feminist from a young age and, as a child, I spent most Saturdays at the Football Club with my dad. Whenever I would fight back at a derogatory joke about women, my dad’s friend would call me Emmeline Pankhurst. I took it as a compliment and still think she was pretty frickin’ awesome!

2: Who would play you in a movie?

I’m totally kidding myself when I say this but Zooey Deschanel. Of course, I’m a few years younger, so I should pick someone closer to my age but still quirky and feisty… Kat Dennings it is!

3: Which do you prefer The Jetsons or The Flintstones?

Oh my gosh! Um… I watched them both when I was younger. We were all over Cartoon Network in my house. I’m gonna have to go with The Flintstones though.

4: What’s your favourite book?

Eek! If you follow my aliljoy book club, you’ll know that I don’t have a current favourite. I have favourite writers (Jodi Picoult, Dennis Lehane, Jane Austen, Sophie Kinsella, Cecilia Ahern) but not a favourite title. At a push I’ll say Emma.

5: What’s your favourite smell?

Freshly cut sweet peas, bacon sizzling, the sea breeze… I have a lot of favourites, hence the blog!

6: What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

Paha! My boyfriend has made me watch some belters but The Room has to take the biscuit. I rarely get through an entire film that I don’t like but he made me! Wanker!

7: What’s your second favourite animal?

Eek again! I’m really into foxes right now. They’re the new owl!

8: What was your best Halloween costume?

The one I never wore! I went to a charity shop to pick up a 1970s style white dress that I wouldn’t mind chucking a load of fake blood over to be Carrie about eight years ago. For reasons I’ve forgotten, I didn’t make it out that year. The dress lurked in the wardrobe for a couple of years until I wore it under angel wings for a Christmas work thing and then I donated it back to a charity shop.

9: What’s your dream job?

I want to make a living from my writing and be able to work primarily from home. I don’t mind if that’s through the blog, freelancing or launching a magazine with a friend – the particulars haven’t been ironed out yet. But hopefully all of the above!

10: What’s the best question you have ever been asked?

“Do you want to live together?” My boyfriend asked me after six months. We’ve been living together for two and a half years and it has been the best decision of my life. Awful, ain’t it!

Wow, some of those were toughies! Anyhoo, I also need to nominate ten other blogs! I’m not sure if they have under 200 followers but some of these are relatively new and I wanna give ’em a shout out. Check ’em out. I really do love these guys!

  2. Confessions of a Slummy Mummy

  4. Love Chic Living
  5. Jump For Journalism
  6. Kimi and Me
  7. Truth and Cake
  8. The Cake Hunter
  9. The Curiosity Project

And as for the ten questions, I’ll ask a variation of my ‘in the spotlight‘ questions…

  1. Do you remember the initial moment when you decided you wanted to blog? What was your reasoning? (That counts as one question!)
  2. Where do you get your inspiration from?
  3. What do you hope to achieve in the next year, both personally and professionally?
  4. What is your ideal future?
  5. What is your favourite film?
  6. What is your favourite book?
  7. What is your favourite website?
  8. What is your favourite shop?
  9. What is your favourite place?
  10. What do you wish you were able to do better?

Thanks again! :)
