I was nominated for a blogging award! I’m so proud of my little blog. This last month has been amazing! The award is the Liebster Award and can only be won by small bloggers. It’s more of an opportunity to grow and discover new blogs than to actually win something. Still, I am thrilled.
First, I would like to thank Lindsey @ The Lamp & The Lamb for nominating me for this award. Please go and check out her blog and support her. She is doing an amazing job!
Tribute to an inspirational blogger
I would also like to write a little about one of my favourite blogs, Travelling Wanderer. I met April through Twitter and she has been the sweetest person. She is seriously living the life I wished I could live. She lives in a van and takes the most beautiful photos of nature for Twitter (and her blog). She has a beautiful travel blog and frequently visits different countries and blogs about it.
She is a big inspiration in the blogging community and what I like most about her is that she is normal. She’s a normal human being just like me and despite all of the hardships in her life, she manages to inspire so many.
I am inspired to write my blog and try to be the best version of myself each day.
Answering my nomination questions
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love being able to speak my mind and get such awesome feedback. So far my experience has been very positive and I’ve met so many amazing people.
What do you think sets you apart from other bloggers?
My experiences and thoughts. I’m a person that likes to help others, so I love to give advice and find ways to make life easier. I’ve also experienced a lot of things that I feel people can relate to. I’m very open on my blog and I try to engage with my viewers.
Do you have any pets? How many/ What kind?
I have a pet rabbit. Her name is Oreo. My mom also recently adopted a 2 year old beagle. His name is Krummel (Afrikaans for Crumbs).
Who is your inspiration in life?
My boyfriend. He has been through so much hardship, but he still manages to put a smile on my face.
If you could be a superhero, which superhero would you be?
I would be Wonder Woman. She does not need anyone to save her, but she is also compassionate and kind.
Coke or Pepsi?
Do you feel like you are happy with your blogging experience so far?
I am very happy. I am excited to see what 2018 holds.
What is your biggest blogging goal for 2018?
I want to build my email list and even sell an online product.

I listen to all kinds of music, but Pop is one of my favourites.

On the couch with my boyfriend, sipping coffee and watching a movie.

Congratulations! Nominees, you can find out what to do next by going to the Official Rules of the Liebster Award.
In your blog post, please write 10 facts about yourself so I can get to know you all better. Good luck!
The Liebster Award Rules
If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you should do the following:
Thank the person who nominated you, and put a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.
Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.) At the bottom of this post, I’ve included a whole lot of images you can use for your 2017 Liebster Award.
For the 2017 Liebster Award, I will be shaking things up! Write a 150-300 word post about your favourite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog, provide links.
Provide 10 random facts about yourself. (This year I’m making this optional. If you wish to engage with your readers it’s a great idea to include random facts about you.)
Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here or simply link to this post.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post or mine if you don’t have all the information so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it! Post a comment in the comments below so I can view your post and check out your blog. I personally visit each and everyone. I visited a few hundred last year!!
If you have been nominated before at any time please share the love. Many people believe the Liebster award is similar to a chain email/letter and sure it shares similarities but the underlining idea is to help promote each others’ blogs.
I hope that we can all grow together and keep helping each other along in this blogging journey.
