Blogging isn’t always easy! There’s thousands and thousands of blogs out there, so it’s not an exaggeration when I say there’s lots of competition. For beginners like me, that means putting work into blog posts and not always seeing much results.
I’ve been working hard on getting more followers and I’ll keep working hard, but luckily I was nominated for the Liebster Award. I know what you’re thinking: What is that?
What even is the Liebster Award?
The Liebster Award is an online award that bloggers share to get lesser known bloggers to be seen. In a way it’s like one of those chain email things except you won’t be “haunted” by some monster if you don’t continue the chain (what a relief!). On the contrary, if you do continue the chain, you can actually get more followers on your blog.
Here’s how it works:
- The nominee let’s everyone know who they were nominated by and maybe give a little promotion to them!
- The nominee answers the questions posed to them by their nominator.
- They then nominate other bloggers (usually around 11) and let them know they are nominated.
- Lastly, the nominee then comes up with 11 questions for the people they nominated to answer.
Here’s my addition the the Liebster Award:
I was nominated for the award by Hitched Alan’s Travels. They blog about amazing hikes around the world. Check out their post about the world’s largest suspension bridge. I’ve already added that to my bucket list!
Here are the questions I have to answer:
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
-That’s definitely a hard question, but I’d have to say New Zealand.
Just look at that view! I’d hike every single day if I lived there. In fact, I’d live in that hut on the bottom left!
Who (non-family) has influenced you the most?
-Peter Jackson. You may know him as the director of the Lord of the Rings. I’ve seen those movies way too many times and they were more than just movies to me, they really inspired me. They showed me the power that movies have to bring us to other worlds and experience something different from our own life. That is what got me so interested into film making. After my gap year finishes I’m heading to school to pursue my dream and study film making. Just wait, in a few years I’ll have a fantasy movie out! 😀
What is your favourite dessert?
-This is a very important topic for me. Ice cream is easily my go to dessert, however whatever dessert is in front of me I will eat. As long as it is gluten free (I have Celiac disease!)
Beach or forest?
-Forest, for sure! Nothing like a walk in the woods.
What is your most prized possession?
-My camera. It has been everywhere with me! Wherever I go, it goes. Unfortunately, this means its been in some risky situations.
It’s been through sand, snow, rain, dirt and even some food. You would think that I would be more careful with my most prized possession!
What is your favourite quote?
-“Not all those who wander are lost” I know it is so cliche, especially for a travel blogger, but I guess it’s that way for a reason!
What is a favourite childhood memory?
-Going on my first hike with my dad.
Sweet or salty?
-Sweet all the way! If you haven’t noticed I have a major sweet tooth!
What is your favourite book?
-Lord of the Rings. I may have watched the movies before I read the books, but I still love them!
What do you most enjoy about blogging?
-I love being able to share my experiences from traveling with people. I get so happy when I’m traveling I just want to share it with people so they
What do you do to relax?
