Liebster Award challenge


The Liebster Award is designed to highlight new blogs & is open to those with under 200 followers.
The requirements are simple: 11 questions set to you by a fellow blogger. You then set 11 other bloggers your own set of 11 questions. (Prime numbers seem to be quite aujourd'hui)

I think the award is a great opportunity for smaller blogs to gain greater exposure and build new connections with a broad spectrum of other writers.

The lovely Rosanna of Silver Brogues set me the challenge and I'm certainly not one to refuse a lady!

And so to the questions:
What do you love most about writing your blog?
The honesty. I can be frank and open with my thoughts, ideas and opinions. This doesn't mean I'm going to be critical or nasty, but I think a blog needs to be real or else why bother?
Where do you find inspiration for writing your blog?
My blog itself is a great source of inspiration. When I can't think of something to write; I write about that. I usually draft my posts out on paper first, I find clearing my head helps generate some fresh new ideas.
What advice would you give a new blogger?
Don't be afraid. I'd started and deleted and restarted this blog several times, questioning my voice and whether I was good enough to write a blog. But it's your blog. You write about what you feel passionate about, if someone shares your passion they'll love to read it.
What is your favourite magazine?
I actually don't really read magazines that regularly. I used to subscribe to GQ, Elle Decoration and Living Etc, but now I do most of my reading online. I'm a bit of a hoarder and don't need waist-high piles of magazines in my living room.
What is your favourite online shop? - a fantastically curated and merchandised mini market of clothing, gifts and interiors. I love everything from the product selection to the banners. ( I probably should have said the one I merchandise, but hey, I look at that every day!)
What is your guilty pleasure?
Comic books. I'm a huge nerd and spent most of my teenage years (and my 20's if I'm honest) collecting comics. I love the creativity, passion and skill that goes into creating a comic, from the writers, to the artists inkers & letterers. It's a media that has its fair share of negative attitude; with people thinking it immature picture books but I don't think there is another printed genre which merges so many talents.
What most inspires you?
My BF. I can be very easily distracted and also tend to give up on things if I'm not instantly good at the, but he's always supportive of all my hair-brained ideas and is ready to give me a kick up the arse to get back on track.
What is your ideal day off?
I love a lazy morning start, maybe breakfast in Avoca with the BF. I wish I could say we'd do something high-brow and cultured, but a good nosey around the shops and then slobbing on the sofa is just as satisfying.

Three words to describe yourself.
Sarcastic, happy & short.
What is your favourite quote?
"The whole world is watching us now. We must be nothing less than fabulous." - Emma Frost, New X-Men #122

You have a super power – what is it, and what is your name?
As a true geek, this is a question I've posed to myself on many occasions. I think it would have to be teleportation; think of all the travelling you could do without all the long-haul flights! My codename would be Envoy. (Rogue would have been an obvious choice, but it's been taken)

Thank you Rosanna for some fun & thoughtful questions!

My turn to play quizmaster...
  1. What's the first word that just popped into your head?
  2. What motivated you to start your blog?
  3. Why did you choose your blog name?
  4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
  5. What is your favourite book?
  6. If you could visit any place in the world, where & why?
  7. Your house is on fire. Your family are safe, so what possession do you rescue?
  8. What animal best represents your personality?
  9. Do you have a party trick/hidden talent?
  10. Which four people (One dead, one famous, one weird & one blogger) would you invite your next dinner party?
  11. If you were a biscuit, what sort of biscuit would you be?
And the nominees are...
I'm curious to see who responds and how they answer my questions.
