So I just finished my dinner (for those of you in the middle of your breakfast, please remember I am in Aus and 11 hours ahead of the UK so I’m basically a whole day ahead of you soooo that’s why I’m drinking wine and in my pyjamas) and got a notification that https://thetaleofanunlikelywarrior.wordpress.com has nominated me for the Liebster Award!
Now, I’ve been blogging for more than a year now and haven’t really been nominated for things, so I don’t really know how they work, but first I’d like to thank https://thetaleofanunlikelywarrior.wordpress.com for the nomination- honestly, for only being 14 years old, the content in this blog is wonderful, GO CHECK IT OUT!
Now, through reading other blogs I’ve been made aware that there are rules to these awards, so here goes!
Rules for Accepting It:
- Write about it on your blog and thank the person who nominated you , write about their blog too.
- Display the award on your blog.
- Nominate 5 to 10 blogs which you feel deserve it.
- Let the nominees know that you nominated them.
The Liebster Award is an award in which bloggers nominate other bloggers for showing respect to their works and their dedication. It’s an appreciation and recognition for all the fellow bloggers out there.
The questions I need to answer are:
Why do you write?
I write because I’ve always had way too many words and thoughts in my head and not enough confidence to voice them. I was a shy kid, so writing was a way for me to express myself without having to involve anyone else and (god forbid) be judged on any of my opinions!
What animal would you be and why?
I’d be a koala- have you seen what they do all day? Yeah. Eat and friggen sleep- who doesn’t want that?
What is your most annoying habit?
I’m a grammar freak. Please write and speak properly or I’ll walk away from you.
Phone or a good book?
This totally depends on how I’m feeling and how tired I am.
Do you have any siblings?
I have 3 younger brothers, at the ages of 17, 4 and 1- so massive age gaps between all of us. It’s amazing though! I have a sibling I can talk about adult things with; a sibling I can play dinosaurs with; and one I can cuddle like a human teddy bear!
What advice do you have for aspiring writers?
Don’t stress out. Let the words flow and you’ll be surprised at where you end up.
What drives you to succeed?
My own ambition as well as that of my boyfriend. We both refuse to let the other slack off, and motivate each other every day.
What is a talent that no-one knows you have?
I have a knack for photography- but I didn’t even know this until recently so it’s no surprise no one else knows about it either.
What time period would you revisit and why?
The Roaring 20’s. I’m a massive Great Gatsby fan, and would love to experience the days of prohibition, flapper dresses and big band parties!
Why do you blog?
I initially started to blog because I felt like I couldn’t talk to anyone I knew about my mental health problems. Blogging became a way to help me open up and, by writing things down, I was able to sort out my thoughts and make them coherent to myself in the times where they were at their most muddled and poisonous. Now, it’s like an online diary, and to be honest, I really enjoy going onto the app every day and reading other blogs. It’s like reading the newspaper in the morning.
My nominations are:
My questions are:
What is your favourite song or book and why?
What’s your biggest fear?
What food can you not stand at all and why?
If you had to get rid of one animal on the earth which would it be?
Would you rather have hands for feet or feet for hands? Why?
Tell us a joke.
Thanks guys! Normal posting will resume as normal on Sunday!
