Hey everyone! Recently, I was nominated to participate in the Liebster Award – an award designed to help fairly new bloggers to get to know each other better.
I was nominated by the lovely Caitlin, whose blog I will link right here for you to check out. [*Thank you Caitlin for the nomination*].
For this award there are a set number of goals, the first being to post the award on your blog [*tick*] and share the blog of the person who nominated you as a way of saying thank you [*tick*].
The next objective is to share eleven random facts about yourself and nominate eleven other bloggers who have less than two-hundred followers on some type of platform. [*At the time, I believe my platform was Twitter, as I was very new to it when I was nominated*].
Finally, you must answer the eleven previous questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you, and ask eleven separate questions to those you nominate.
Questions Caitlin asked:
Who or what inspired you to blog?
In general I have just always had a passion for writing, even though it hasn’t always been my strong point. I really like the idea of sharing my opinions, adventures, and experiences with others, and learning from others and their experiences too.
What is your favourite television show?
I absolutely adore Black Sails, and I am so upset that it wrapped up this year. Everything about it was amazing – the character development, the scenery, the pirate ships, the fights scenes. It was honestly incredible. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone who loves Treasure Island, or pirates, or just wants a new TV show to watch.
Describe yourself in three words
Really, very average.
What has been your best blogging experience?
I love when I post a Photo Diary, and I get feedback from people who love photography as much as I do. It really helps me improve and feel better about my work.
Where would you most like to travel?
Having never left the UK, I have always wanted to visit Sweden. It seems like a very beautiful place.
What is the best post you’ve ever written?
I really enjoy reviewing TV shows, and I think because I’m so enthusiastic about them that they’re probably my best blog posts. A couple of examples are my reviews of the Black Sails finale, Line of Duty, and Shadowhunters.
What is your favourite makeup brand?
In all honesty, I don’t really have one, but recently I tried a really nice lip kit by Barry M. So it would be a toss up between Barry M and Rimmel, where I always buy my pressed powder from.
Have you attended any blogging event?
Never, never, never, ever.
Where is your favourite place to shop?
I really love Paperchase and all their stationary!
What is your favourite quote?
‘My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way’ – Ernest Hemingway.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I really want to have finished my Law degree with a First [*if that’s possible*], and have started a career in the legal sector. I’m undecided whether to be a barrister or a solicitor though. I also want to have published at least two of my manuscripts. And hopefully, I’ll have a couple of dogs called Ethel, Hamish, and Rupert [*but my boyfriend will never agree to this, I know already*].
Bloggers I’ve Nominated:
[NOTE: I haven’t technically followed the under 200 followers thing – I’ve just selected blogs that I really like, and that I think deserve further recognition.]
