I Was Nominated For A Liebster Award!

I have gotten yet, another award! So flattered! This time I was nominated for the Liebstar Award from a sweet blogger I have met through SITS girls named Jia who writes over at Jia and the Stars. Thank you SO much Jia!

 

LiebsterAward_3lilapplesWhat is the Liebster Award?

Liebster means “kind” in German. The Liebster Award is a blog award nomination presented to novice bloggers in an effort to spread blog love and increase blog exposure.

The Rules:

–Share 11 interesting facts about yourself
–Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you
–Pick your nominees for the Liebster Award
–Come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer

 

Eleven Facts About Me:

1. I had my wedding overseas, in Macedonia to be exact.

2. My favorite color is Purple.

3.  I have immediate family in Sydney, Australia. My grandfather still lives over there.

4. I’m not a huge fan of watermelon. I had it maybe twice this past summer.

5. I am a chipaholic. I can polish off a whole bag of potato chips and call it my dinner.

6. I can’t down beer. It’s my least favorite alcoholic drink. I can nurse one for hours.

7. I get cold easily. Soon as it hits 50 I am busting out my winter coats. And I live in Chicago. Go figure.

8. I have been wanting to live in Chicago since 6th grade when I took my first field trip here. I saw the Nutcracker for the first time then.

9. I am not into seafood really. Wish I was. I’ll eat mostly white fish if anything, as long as it is breaded and fried 🙂

10. I love wearing leggings more than anything.

11. I only own two pairs of shorts.

 

Eleven questions from Jia that I must answer:

1.  Do you think it is better with blogs who have a niche?

I don’t know if it is “better” but maybe easier to follow.

2. Do you care about how much traffic you get?

You know when I first read this I thought it meant street traffic-LOL! That I can attest for. But yes I also care how much blog traffic I get. I get a little stressed   over it.

3. Do you have any sponsor and if you do…how did you manage do get it?

Not yet. I just started a month ago so I would love to know this too!

4. Do you have any blogging (secret) tips you would like to share?

Be positive. I think that helps when connecting with other bloggers.

5. Does the family read your blog?

Just my brother and my cousin. I am still trying to convince my parents to get the internet!

6. What is your favorite food?

Oh hands down pizza! I am from Chicago you know 🙂

7. Tea or coffee, what do you prefer?

Coffee!

8. Are you joining any groups on Facebook that are blogging related?

The main one is from SITS Girls.

9. Online shopping or do you prefer to shop at the stores?

Shop at stores. I appreciate fashion so I rather experience it in person than just viewing it online.

10. What do you think is must haves on a blog?

An About Me section for sure so you can find out what the blogger is like.

11. What do you do to promote your fellow bloggers?

I follow them on various social media networks and I feature their posts on them.

And here are my 11 nominees. I am picturing myself now to be in a red Oscar De La Renta ball gown with Johnny Depp as my co-host (haha!). In no particular order they are:

  1. Nice reading. Haha…now I do understand it could be confusing with the second question. My bad for not adding that I mean traffic on the blog:)

  2. No worries! I figured it out. You were on track talking about blogs so it was mainly me that didn’t catch it.

    Do you know I have a cousin who moved to Sweden! Grew up in the States and moved there 🙂 So now I know two people living in Sweden 🙂 (Well four if you count her husband and kiddo 🙂

  3. Awwww, thanks, Deanna!

    I love leggings, too. And like you, I’m not a big watermelon person. I’ll eat it and enjoy it if someone buys and cuts one up, but it’s too much trouble to do it myself 🙂 And my husband HATES it!

      Welcome! Ah yes,leggings are the best invention ever.

      I am the SAME way-if someone puts it in front of me sure, I’ll try it,otherwise I am not really into watermelon.
      My husband and my 17 month old LOVES watermelon! She would throw a fit if we didn’t give her any it was so cute! She takes after my husband a lot 🙂

  4. PS: I’m enjoying the Better Your Blog Facebook group so far – just joined about a week ago.

  6. I’m honored to be given this nomination by someone in such a fancy, chic gown! 😛

    You got married in Macedonia? I’m sure there’s a story behind that! Cool!

    Thanks for the nomination! I’m going to answer the questions here:

    1. On average, how many blogs do you try to comment on per day? Oy. . . I say between 10 & 15? Tough question because I always get behind and then go mega-50-comments-in-a-day binges!

    2. Have you ever been to Chicago before? 🙂 Yes! My first serious boyfriend lived there, and we met while I was visiting a friend so I have been a bunch of times!

    3. How long have you been blogging for? Since July 2012, so about a year and a half.

    4. What is your favorite genre of music? It’s like that popular folksy kind of music, like MGMT. I don’t stick with genres I like as much as ones I stay away from (R&B is boring, country is sooooo not me, metal is too heavy, and jazz puts me to sleep). Besides that, I listen to top 40, rap, old school punk like Blink 182 stuff, etc.

    5. What is your favorite food? Mac & cheese. And mashed potatoes. Yum! But not together, separately. 🙂

    6. Where is your favorite vacation destination? Anywhere there’s a beach and it’s hot!

    7. What piece of clothing is your favorite and why? Sweat pants. COMFORTABLE!

    8. Favorite TV show? None.

    9. Salt tooth or sweet tooth? Sweet tooth.

    10. You won the lottery. What would you do with the money first? Buy a new car!

    11. Name one thing you would like to do to improve your blog. Update my about page. It’s lacking and I keep putting it off!

      Yes, there is a story behind that. My husband’s family is from there so we did the engagement party here and the wedding there, we had to compromise 🙂
