It feels great and is humbling to get a nomination for a Liebster award. A huge shout out to Steph at Dreaming In Turquoise for the nomination. For the last month or so I have been working full time while trying to get this blog up off the ground. This has meant many hours of stumbling through plugins, pages and content but recognition for my work makes it worth every second.
About the Liebster Award
The Liebster Award started in Germany in 2011 and has since spread its recognition and support all around the world. It provides new bloggers a chance to connect, and encourage others who are new to the blogging world. No matter what your niche is, we can learn from each other.
In order for me to accept the Liebster Award there are a few orders of business as outlined by “The Global Aussie” . Including thanking my nominators, answering the questions outlined by them, and nominating 11 new blogs that ‘Simply Good Enough’ would like to recognize.
On to the questions:
What inspired you to start your blog?
This blog was developed on a whim. A year or so back I started a facebook page to get some of my friends to connect and commit to being more active, healthy and to learn to accept themselves in whatever situation they may be in.
My kids are pretty young so it was hit or miss on getting posts and I just hadn’t made the commitment. This summer I decided I needed more discipline and a bigger challenge. Along came Simply Good Enough.
If you could have a conversation over a drink with anyone, who would it be?
OK I know this question only says 1 but I couldn’t just pick 1.
Robin Williams. Ever since I was little there was something that drew me to anything and everything that he has ever done. His energy and vibes to strive to make people smile is amazing. It wasn’t just his acting but all the things he did behind the scenes.
I could sit and listen to him talk for hours. I believe that he had more to offer than he may have ever realized.
Johnny Depp. Along with the fact that he is amazingly handsome, he is also crazy weird and smart. He is so fascinating to me in so many ways. Weird enough I can’t even describe it.
What is your proudest moment?
As a parent I will never be able to choose just 1. I have 3. They challenge me. Make me crazy. And I love every second of it.
List your top 5 bucket list items.
- Travel – The US coasts and Australia
- Learn to snowboard/Ski – I live in the snow 9+months of the year but I have no skills.
- Go to an Elephant refuge – Elephants are my critter.
- Be Published
- Get a French Bulldog
Give your BEST tip to other bloggers or people considering starting a blog.
Just do it. Don’t be afraid and take the leap. It’s gonna be hard. You’re gonna make mistakes. Do it anyway.
What is your opinion on selfie-sticks?
Selfie’s aren’t my thing so adding in a stick doesn’t really change it for me. However I do appreciate that people are so into them. Sometimes it really is the simple things in life.
