Liebster Award for Bloggers

liebster-award

USA blogger Kim Acedo of Transformation Wellness for Women nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is an award for bloggers to recognize and get to know other bloggers.

I think the great thing about blogging is that is brings people from all around the world closer together and just goes to prove that we are all like-minded.

I was asked to answer some questions about myself, then I get the opportunity to nominate a few other bloggers to participate. Check out some of the blogs I nominate at the end – I think you’ll really enjoy them!

Here are the questions that I was asked to answer:

  1. What makes you happy? Spending time with my family, walking my dog along the beach, immersing myself in nature with just me and my camera, catching up with girlfriends for a gossip and coffee and travelling to new and exciting places.
  1. Why did you start blogging? Well, my Dad wrote an autobiography about his life years ago and I thought if he could write a book, the least I could do is start up a little blog. But really I started to write out of boredom and I could see a market for a blog for 50 something years olds that would hopefully inspire we middle-aged empty-nesters to feel worthy and useful.
  1. What is the best thing anyone has ever said about your blog? That my blog was inspiring to women of my age group.
  1. What is one piece of advice you would offer or one saying you live by? You only get one life so be yourself, live life to the fullest and ignore the naysayers!
  1. What are your top three bucket list items?
    1. Travel, travel and more travel 2. Writing about my passion – travel 3. Keeping myself fit and able to enable more travel!

  1. What is your ultimate guilty pleasure? I love indulging in good food, good wine with good people!
  1. What is one product or service you cannot live without? I think it is probably my hairdryer and hair straightener.
  1. What is your favorite Australian travel destination? Broome and The Kimberley in North West Australia – simply stunning!
  1. What two countries make you the happiest to visit? That’s a hard one. I adored Turkey and Canada. Totally different countries but both incredible.
  1. What is your dream destination? At the moment I am ‘frothing’ Italy. I am hoping to travel there in the near future.

I had to think long and hard about my answers to these questions! Thanks Kim for nominating me! I now nominate the following bloggers to answer these questions as well. I hope they accept this award because I can’t wait to read their responses!

1. Michelle Weaver at Pinky Poinker

2. Jill Harrison of Life Images by Jill

3. Jo Castro of Lifestyle Fifty

4. Jan Robinson at Budget Travel Talk

5. Rae Hilhorst of I Opened my Mouth and it Ran Away Without Me

    Thank you Kathy xxx I don’t think I’ve been nominated for a Liebster before. I love being given questions to answer because it means I get to talk about myself! I think your blog is inspiring to people from all walks of life and ages. Your photographs alone are inspirational!

      Mmm I’ve never heard about a Liebster Award before either. It came from one of my US blogger friends so maybe it’s an American thing. You and I sound alike – I love to answer questions about myself too! Does make me vain I wonder? Thank you for your lovely compliments – I really don’t think I do anything special at all. It’s just my way of entertaining myself! Lol

    Thanks for nominating me Kathy! I’m a bit snowed under right now, but I will get around to it :) I love these kind of questions because it makes us think a little more about ourselves, and I’m such a nosey thing … I love reading about other people’s likes, dislikes and dreams too.

      I understand completely. It sounds as though you have hit the ground running since your return from the UK! I enjoy these tell-all type questions too. It’s nice to get to know your cyber-colleagues a bit more! :)

    Hi Kathy, Thanks for the nomination. I love answering questions whether they’re about myself or food or living in North Queensland or where I’d like to travel next, anything subject really, lol.

      I agree with you totally Jan. It is a wonderful thing to be passionate about the area where you live and bringing it to the rest of the world through photos and prose. I think we are very lucky to love travel and to write about it. :)
