Liebster Blog Award ~ from Laura

by - Monday, July 16, 2012

Celebration! Yes, I’ve been tagged twice with this award. This one is a bit different (it only has 5 questions, 5 tags, etc). Thanks so much to Laura Besley at Living, Loving and Writing for the nomination. I’m definitely grateful.

As you probably know, Liebster Blog Award is being given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. ‘Liebster’ is actually a German word; it means ‘dearest’, ‘sweetheart’, or ‘beloved’. Now, I have to admit; this is one great award!

So… what are the rules this time?

Pretty easy, actually.

1. Post five (5) facts about yourself
2. Answer 5 questions the tagger has asked
3. Tag 5 other bloggers by linking them to your post. After publishing, let these bloggers know that you have tagged them. You can either contact them via their email addresses or just comment on one of their posts.
4. Think of five questions for the bloggers you've tagged. Post the questions so the bloggers you've tagged can answer them when they publish their own Liebster blog award posts.
5. No tags back.

Here we go!

Five Facts about me:

1. I love to eat pasta (Spaghetti Carbonara - absolute fave)
2. Lately, I’ve been drinking a lot of iced / sweet tea (no more soda). I believe this book inspired me to do so.
3. I don’t always shop for clothes. As in.
4. I always cry whenever I watch the movie “The Lakehouse”.
5. I always want (and I try) to organize my schedule. And I can, you know. But somehow, at the end of the week, it always ends up as just a schedule – not entirely followed. :(

Questions from Laura Besley

1. Have you always considered yourself a creative person?
I think, yes. To a point. ;)

2. Who has been an inspiration to you in your life and work?
Hmmm. Well, at the moment, my inspiration in life and work is my family (hubby and son), and I think they will be my inspiration for the rest of my life. But before I met my husband, it changed every now and then. I mean, there was a time that my inspiration in life and work was ‘Lorelai Gilmore’ (Lauren Graham) from comedy-drama series, Gilmore Girls. I know it’s a bit unusual, where I get my inspiration, but I have my reasons. ;)

3. Name 3 things you'd like to achieve in life.
One: I want to be a successful book blogger and reviewer.
Two: I want to have financial freedom. It would really be nice.
Three: I want to be Wonder Woman. (Is it too much to ask? LOL)

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world (no money, time, visa restraints), where would you go?
Paris and Germany.

5. Do you think the world of art will drastically change in the next 50 years?
Yes. In so many ways, yes. But of course, there will be some, only a few, areas that will remain the same.

The five lovely bloggers I’m nominating for this award

1. Jenny and Nick – A Bookish Co-Op
2. Karen – Cheerful Book Reviews
3. Garima – One to Five Stars
5. Sarah - Sarah's Book Nook

My five questions:

1. Books or movies? 
2. Did you always want to be a book blogger / reviewer?
3. Where do you usually read books?
4. Do you have a favorite snack while reading a book?
5. Coffee, Tea, Milk, Iced Tea, or Hot chocolate?

Again, thanks to Laura ;) And to the five lovely bloggers that I've tagged, Congratulations! Have fun!
