To my complete joy and surprise, Ashley over at Mental Health at Home nominated me for a Liebster Award!
For those of you who don’t know, the Liebster Award was created as a way for bloggers to support other new or smaller blogs. The rules tend to be a bit different on each post so it can be confusing! I’m going to go by the rules that were given in the post I was nominated in:
- Create a new post thanking the person who nominated you.
- Provide a link to their blog.
- Include the award graphic.
- Answer the questions provided.
- Nominate 10 recently followed bloggers and share your post with them, so they can see it.
- Make a new set of 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
These are the questions I was asked and my answers:
What changes would you like to see in the world within the next ten years?
I would like to see the end of stigma towards mental illness. I would also like to see equality for women and the LGBT community, and the end of racial discrimination. Finally I would like to see nurses getting paid what we deserve! Sadly, I don’t think any of these will happen within that time frame but we can keep trying.
Do you own any pets? If so, what kind?
I have a cat, Panda, who is my absolute best friend in the world. I also have two beautiful bunnies, Luna and Lola.
What is your least liked thing about blogging?
It’s really easy to get competitive and caught up in numbers sometimes rather than just writing for yourself.
How in touch are you with your surroundings?
I would say very little! I am often walking around with my head in the clouds.
What is your favourite social media site?
I would probably say twitter but they all have their perks. Instagram is great for sharing and looking at beautiful photos of cats lots of different things and Facebook is a good way to catch up with people I know in real life.
Do you wake up early or like to sleep late?
I LOVE sleep. Early bedtime and late wake up is the dream, unfortunately it’s usually the other way around!
Where would you most like to visit and why?
I’m actually ticking off four of my bucket list places this year – Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Bali. I absolutely adore Asia; the food, people, scenery, all of it! Other than that I would absolutely love to visit Iceland to see the northern lights.
If you could have a drink (can be water) with anyone alive or dead, who would you choose?
This is a really hard question. A close friend of mine took her own life 9 years ago this year, and I miss her a lot. I would love to be able to speak to her again.
What is your favourite book?
Alice in Wonderland is my all time favourite, but a very close second is How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. I couldn’t put it down and I would recommend it to anyone.
If you could be any animal what would you be?
Always a cat. Sleeping all day, getting cuddles on tap and being fed on demand. Sounds perfect.
It was hard to narrow down my nominees and these guys are awesome so chances are some of them may have been nominated before. The 10 bloggers I’ve chosen are:
My 10 questions for you are:
