Ever since I started blogging I came across blogs with images of different awards and I used to wonder what does it take to win such awards. Well, I did not realise that the first step in winning awards is to get nominated. And I could not believe my eyes when I saw one such link on my blog telling me that I have been nominated for Liebster Award.
Thanks Mrs Surreal (survivingtheunexpected.wordpress.com) for the nomination.
Liebster Award is an award for new bloggers with less than 200 followers. It is a way to reach your blog out and, hopefully, get increased readership for your blog.
Here are the Official Rules for accepting the Liebster Award:
- Why did you start blogging? Ever since I embraced motherhood, everything changed in me and around me. I was struggling every single day. This was the time I felt the need to see the funny part in my struggles and to jot them down in the form of a blog and to connect with fellow mom bloggers.
- What do you do like to do in your free time (assuming you have any 🙂 )? Hmmm…Free time…I dedicate my free time to reading books and blogs.
- Most unexpected thing about being a parent? I have to be on my toes at every moment and if you have been a lazy lass like me then you know how tough can this be.
- When do you blog? Once or twice a week during the first half of the day. This is the time when the house is in full mess and my brain works best.
- What/Who most inspires you as a person? There are many things which serve the inspirational purpose but reading good books is what inspires me the most.
- What is your go-to recipe? Aaloo Parantha with yogurt.
- Do you have a personal mantra, and if so, what is it? “Control what is in your control”. (I read this in Andre Aggasi’s autobiography)
- What is your favorite store? Any book store.
- Must-have baby product, what is yours? Baby wipes. I think I will continue using them all my life. Its a one stop all cleaning solution.
- You have the chance to stop at your favorite drink place (coffee, tea, soda, etc.), which place and what is your drink order? I dont have any favorite drink place.
Oooh…that was not as easy as I thought. But as my son says – Its over baby, its over.
