And The Nominees Are…

Liebster Award 2

I am sending a BIG Thank You to fellow bloggerAmanda!  LifeLoveBlu has been nominated for the Liebster Award. As you all know I am new to the blogosphere so when I received the notification that I had been nominated I had absolutely no clue what this award was. All I knew was that I am new to blogging and have a small following yet, I was recognized for my writings. Can you say excited!

For those of you that are clueless just as I was, let me explain. The Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers by other bloggers to welcome them into the blogosphere. One of the main rules was that only bloggers with 3,000 or less followers would be eligible for this award but over time the rules have changed and it is now bloggers with less than 500 followers. There are still some other rules that apply, they are as follows:

1. Thank the blogger who has nominated you.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you (I’ll get to those in a moment)
3. Nominate 11 other blogs with less than 500 followers
4. Post 11 questions for your nominees to answer
5. Tag your nominees and post a comment in their blog to let them know you have nominated them

With that being said, these are the questions I was asked by Amanda

  1. What/who inspired you to write your blog?

Demetria Lucas. I had been looking for an outlet and debating on starting a blog or writing a book, after being introduced to her work and seeing the type of woman she is made me want to jump into it and see where it can take me.

  1. Why do you write a blog?

I write because I have so many thoughts in my head and I feel it’s the best way to keep me sane. I also think I can help people with my words.

  1. What would your first reaction be, if you woke up to find you had lost the contents of your blog?

I think my heart would drop and I would lose my mind for a second realizing that all my work, my thoughts and words had simply vanished into cyberspace with no way of retrieving any of it.

  1. Have you ever written anything mean about someone, on your blog?

Not mean, just truthful but the person probably wouldn’t be too happy with me writing about the situation.

  1. Would you like to be famous?

Yes and no. Yes, because I would like to be known for my writings and be able to help others. No, because I don’t like public speaking or being the center of attention.

  1. If you could publish a book, what would the title be?

Life, Will It Take Me Under?

  1. What is your favorite hobby?

I have two. Writing and listening to music.

  1. Do you ever dance like no one is watching?

All the time! I sometimes have to stop to make sure no one is watching. LOL

  1. If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be?

Just one?? I’m going to break the rules and give five (sorry). Demetria Lucas, Matt Elam, Kevin Hart, Taraji P.Henson and Mark Wahlberg.

  1. What is your biggest achievement?

Graduating. Being someone who could never finish anything I started it was monumental for me.

  1. If you could live your life all over again, what would you do differently? (in a nutshell).

*Sigh* hmmm…well, for one I would take school more serious. Second, I would say no to drugs, alcohol and nicotine. I also would take the time to find, learn and understand myself at a younger age. Last but not least, all my writings from high school moving forward I would keep (it would’ve made writing a book so much easier).

Now that I have done my bit of answering questions, it’s my chance to ask some Qs to my nominees. My pick of nominees are *drum roll* ….
