Blogging Liebster Award!

Liebster Blogging AwardI am so thrilled! We were nominated for the Newbie Blogging Liebster Award! I owe this honor and thanks to Davina Nigel at Business Broken Down . So, what is the  “Liebster Award”? It is an award given to new bloggers by other bloggers, usually those new bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. The purpose of the Liebster Award is to discover and support new bloggers who are tackling the very huge challenge of building a blog, and to foster growth and support. It’s fun to read and discover these new worlds!

So, how does it work? The person who nominates you gives  you a series of questions to answer. You will write a post of your own to answer the questions, and link back to the person who nominated you. You then discover newbie bloggers of your own and give them questions to answer on their blog. Do your best to support the blogs of the person who nominated you and those you nominate. Keep reading for the list of my nominees below.

Here are the questions that Davina gave to me, along with my answers.

1. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I love sharing helpful information with other people and making a positive impact on their lives. My goal is also to branch out so that I am offering different types of resources on my blog.

 

2. Where do you see your blog in five years?

I see it as having grown the point that I am reaching and helping a LOT more people with amazing content.

 

3. Married? Kids? Pets?

I have been married to the love of my life for 36 years! We have five grown and married kids whom we are very proud of, and they have blessed us with six grandchildren (talk about a whole new state of life!). We also raise Labrador Retrievers (they are our other children) and so our life is full of dogs!

 

4. What is the worst/best blogging decision you’ve made so far?

BEST – Connecting with other bloggers via Facebook groups and creating new relationships for inspiration. Also – getting serious about it!

WORST –  Getting discouraged after I first started and not putting up content for several months.

 

5. How do you keep up with everything that is happening in your industry?

I am following several well-known bloggers and spending a lot of time learning everything I can. That means reading a lot of blog posts and being active in groups for bloggers.

 

6. What do you do with your weekends?

Right now I am working on my blog, taking care of home responsibilities and spending time with family. When I can, I sneak in some time to just read a book!

 

7. If you had a paid week off, where would you go and what would you do?

No doubt, I would go the mountains (Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, or Alaska) and take lots of pictures!

 

8. Who do you admire most in this world?

My husband, a hard working guy with a big heart who puts up with me.

 

9. Who was/were your role model(s) when you were growing up?

My parents and grandparents. My dad was always the kind of guy who would stop what he was doing to help anyone. I have always tried to emulate that. My mom and grandmothers were kind people, and they taught me the importance of kindness and consideration.

 

10. What makes you happy?

Learning new things, discovering new places, taking great pictures, holing up with a great book, and  being in the mountains with my husband!
