The Liebster Award!

liebster

I’ve been blogging now for exactly one month and it has been a wonderful experience! I feel so fortunate to have been nominated for the Liebster Award so soon. I truly appreciate how supportive and respectful the blogging community has been. I can’t thank everyone enough who spent time reading my blogs and began to follow me.

A special thank you to Afila, who found my blog worthy enough for a Liebster Award. Everyone should check out Afila Usman’s blog, MommyByName. Afila is an accomplished woman, who is not only a mother, but a Paralegal Assistant and a Math Grad. Afila created her blog to share her experiences and provide advice for other mothers out there. I would highly recommend everyone go read her posts.

What is the Liebster Award?

From what I understand, and through a little research, the Liebster Award is a recognition award from one blogger to another. The word Liebster means “dearest” or “beloved.” Through these awards, we can learn more about our fellow bloggers. This helps us to discover and be discovered.

Rules of the Liebster Award:

  1. Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award.
  2. Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you.
  3. Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nominations.
  5. Give them 11 questions to answer.

So, here we go!

Afila’s 11 questions for me:

  • What made you start a blog?

I began to blog as a form of therapy and to start a support group for women who have vaginimus. I knew that the topic I wanted to blog about (vaginismus) wasn’t a popular topic, so I wanted to bring awareness to the condition and let others out there, who struggle with it personally, know that they are not alone.

  • Are you allergic to any specific thing?

Luckily I am not allergic to anything! Or at least, I’m not allergic to anything I’ve been around so far.

  • Do you have any kind of phobia?

Oh yes! I am TERRIFIED of alligators and the ocean. I have only been swimming in the ocean once and it took A LOT of convincing for me to do that. Then, I ended up having to remain calm as an eel glided right beside me. Eeep!

  • What is my New Year resolution(s)?

The cliche one that I always try to do is exercise more. I want to become as fit as I once was and also eat healthier. Another one that I’m going to start this year as well is to practice relaxing.

  • What is your favorite hobby?

I enjoy drawing. I always have, and even though I haven’t touched pencil to paper in months, I still consider it my favorite hobby.

  • Who is your role model?

For some reason, this is a difficult question. I suppose my role models are my dad and sister. I have to be difficult and pick two. I always look to my dad for answers in regards to adult stuff, but for any other advice, I go to my sister.

  • What is your favorite food?

I want to say ice cream, but I’m not sure that counts πŸ˜‰

  • What is your favorite book?

My favorite book is Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I HIGHLY recommend it!

  • What kind of films do you watch?

I love watching feel good movies or deep and meaningful films, like Lady Bird,Β Into the Wild or The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. They are my top 3 favorite films. Although, I do love watching Romantic Comedies or just Romance in general.

  • What is your opinion on WordPress?

I love it! I think the community is inspiring and I’m always learning something new. It’s extremely user friendly as well.

  • If you have a superpower to change something, what would you change?

Oh the pressure is on! If I could change anything, I would make vaginismus disappear lol or maybe I’d have my dog live as long as meΒ πŸ˜‰
