Thank you so much to fitnessgrad who nominated me for a Liebster award. I have to admit I wasn’t entirely sure what this meant when I first got the notification but after reading up on it I feel it’s a really good concept. It’s a great way to promote your blog when you are an upcoming blogger and more importantly help to get blogs you love recognised and receive the attention they deserve!
fitnessgrad blog is one you must follow for help on your fitness & health journey! Having a degree in exercise science she definitely knows what she is talking about and can give advice from a great evidence base. She states in her bio “one of my goals entailed reaching out to various people around the world to speak on fitness/health” and she is doing this right now through her blog. I get great workout ideas from her blog as she shares lots of her workouts.Help her reach her goal even more by giving her a follow!
The questions given to me by fitnessgrad were:
Have you ever lost passion for something you once loved doing, what was it and why?
I lost my passion for sprinting when I was younger. Not entirely, but a bad injury meant I couldn’t train as much and this made me slow down a good bit. Don’t get me wrong I still love running, I just don’t compete or sprint at the same level I did in my younger years.
Was there ever a time you were scared enough that it made you cry? what was it?
I am a person who really dislikes birds and has a fobia of them so once a seagull flew down and almost attacked me. Luckily I ran out of the way, I didn’t cry but I guess that was a close call!
Do you think it is difficult to be an adult? why?
I guess it can be with all the responsibility, but having responsibility for all aspects of your life can be really enjoyable. Just don’t overthink things and for certain things in life – grow up in your own time not when people tell you to.
How do you handle the days that bring you to your knees?(the really, really bad days)
I’m quite lucky or just maybe an optimistic person but I don’t have many really bad days. But when they do happen exercise usually sorts me out, getting myself of to the gym and weight training helps a lot. Or just surrounding myself with friends and family.
How would you spend 10.00 dollars if that was your last 10.00 dollars?
Probably on food, typical me!
If time machines existed, would you use it?
Yes I would to go back in time, I think the future is best left alone.
What do you think life exist outside the planet earth? – humans, aliens, animals.. etc
I really have no idea about this one.
What is Giant Spiders became reality (the movie 8 legged freaks)?
That would be terrifying!
Which would be worse, watching someone you love die, or killing someone you love in order to save your own life?
Definitely the latter! I don’t think a justification is needed.
If you had the opportunity to be the next President of the United States, would you do it or not? and why?
Well this is not likely to happen due to the fact I’m Scottish and live in Scotland but no I wouldn’t.
I am not going to choose a favourite blog because honestly I have more than one, but my nominations are all great blogs to follow!
What to Do if Nominated for the Liebster Award:
Back in 2011 the rules were a simple case of acknowledgement of the nominator and to nominate 5 more. Now in 2017 it is a little more involved and will continue to evolve as blogging becomes more accessible.
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 follow:
Thank the person who nominated you, and post 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.) go to The Global Aussie for a whole lot of images you can use for your 2017 Liebster Award.
For the 2017 Liebster Award they 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 by 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.
My questions for my nominees are:
- What made you want to start blogging?
- If you had to choose one food to eat for the rest of your life what would it be?
- Where is a country you really want to visit?
- Cats or dogs?
- If you could have one super power what would it be?
- If you have a fobia, what is it?
- What really motivates you on days that you feel slightly de-motiavted?
- Do you prefer Summer or Winter?
- Do you love or loathe Harry Potter?
- What is one piece of life advice you would give anyone?
To my nominees – Do not feel obliged to answer these questions if you don’t want to. I know how busy life can get and it can be difficult to find the time to write your own blog posts from time to time!
