First of all, thanks a bunch to Halfway Amazing for nominating me for a Liebster Blog Award. I had never heard of it before now, and am really touched that you nominated me.
If you are as clueless as I was as to what a Liebster Blog Award is, it is effectively like a tag post. Once nominated, you nominate some your favourite blogs for the award.
*The Official Rules of the Liebster Blog Award (From the Wording Well Website):
1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. Display the award on your blog (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 5-11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers
6. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.)
8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)
What are your favorite types of posts to read?
While I really enjoy how-to posts, I find those about peoples lives are possibly the most interesting. When people allow themselves to be honest and vulnerable online at their lowest points, it’s particularly heartwarming to read of their successes. That level of vulnerability is something I’m still trying to get to grips with myself though.
If you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go?
I’m extremely torn. For someone who goes away so often I haven’t been to many places at all. Countries that come to mind that I’d adore to visit are Italy, Australia, Japan, India and America. While the first place to come to my head was Italy, I then thought about Australia and their wonderful landscapes and wildlife. It’s also where my favourite soap (Home and Away) and my favourite director (Baz Luhrmann) are from.
You know what, I made this way harder than it has to be. Simple answer – Zac Efron’s house.
What is your favorite joke?
How do you fit fifty Pikachus into a tiny car? You Poke-ém-on!
Have you ever been in a food fight?
Nope! I wish I could tell some awesome story about a time when I was though. While I assume food fights can be terribly fun, I’d imagine they can be quite yucky and disgusting at the same time.
What’s one of your most embarrassing moments?
Suddenly my head has gone blank. I’ll have to get back to you on this one.
If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?
For such a popular question, I have no definite answer. I would do one of three things. Firstly, I would like to snoop around a major Hollywood or possibly Bollywood film set on a production day. My second idea is to go somewhere with wonderful wildlife and just watch all the animals from up close. The third option would be to follow Baz Luhrmann around for the day. He’s so wonderful. I’d love to get that extra insight into how his mind works.
What was a good childhood memory for you?
The day I discovered Pokémon. My life changed forever.
How would your closest friends describe you?
Creative, silly and lovely – I think.
My questions for my nominated blogs are:
You are given a time machine and told that it’s slightly broken. If you use it, there’s a risk that you won’t be able to return to present day. Would you use it, and if so where would you go?
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
What gives you motivation to blog?
Who is a big inspiration or role model for you, and why?
How are you?
What was one defining moment for you in life?
Would you ever publish an autobiography?
What is your dream job?
Kittens or puppies?
You’re running away from a lion. The person you love the most in the world is with you. The lion is about to catch them. Do you sacrifice yourself to distract the lion or let them die? (Don’t worry, I hate myself for asking this question too.)
And the moment you’ve all been waiting for… (Drumroll please.)
