I am so honored and grateful to be nominated by the wonderful Sandy Dobbs with On Faith and Dreams for the Newbie Blogging Liebster Award.  It is my first blogging award and am excited to pass it along to other bloggers.

What is the Newbie Blogger Liebster Award?

The Newbie Blogging Liebster Award is an award given to new bloggers, usually for those who have less than 200 followers, by other bloggers as a way to support each other in our journey to growing and building our blogs.

What are the rules?

  • Post your award to your blog
  • Answer the questions you were given by the person who nominated you
  • Nominate a small group of other new bloggers you've discovered
  • Create 10 new questions for the nominees
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog

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

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as an outlet to express all the new changes in my life.  I wanted to inspire others to live their life to the fullest, express their creative side, enjoy their family and the new experiences in their life.

2. What are your favorite things to do besides blogging?
I love to spend time with my husband, create my own projects, browse Pinterest and research new things.

3. Are you married? Kids or pets?
I just got married to my best friend a little less than a year ago and my first baby is on the way (hopefully he comes soon!).

4. Who inspires you?
My husband inspires me to follow my dreams, be the best person I can be, and is always by my side every step of the way.  

5. What does a day in your life look like?
A day in my life includes spending time with my husband, doing projects, working on school, going to work, blogging, and watching Netflix (with many snack breaks in between).

6. Who was/were your role model(s) growing up?
I’ve had many different role models throughout my life.  But the most influential people were my grandma and two of my aunts.  They were always positive role models both in their words and actions.  They helped me through difficult times and taught me to be the person I am today.  I will always be grateful for them and everyone else who has been a positive influence and role model in my life.  

7. What is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place in the world is my house and the beach.  I love how both places are calming and relaxing when I am there.

8. If you had a free paid vacation, where would you go and what would you do?
I love to vacation and see new places so I would be happy going just about anywhere.  But I’ve always wanted to go to Rome to see the Colosseum, try different food, see the shops, and meet new people.

9. What has helped you the most in getting your blog started?
I’ve joined many great Facebook groups that has taught me great tips, tricks and other great resources to use to start and grow my blog.  It has also got me connected other amazing bloggers.

10. What is your favorite genre to read?
I don’t read very much but when I do I enjoy crime thrillers.

  1. What a cool idea. There are so many established bloggers and it can be hard to find your own voice and audience with so much out there. My blog definitely has less than 200 followers, but I'm working on it!

  2. Thanks, I think it's a great idea too. What is your blog? I would love to check it out
