Scrapbook Journeys is now a month, and 1 week old!! 😀 😀 What better time to rave about my blog’s Nomination(s) for the Liebster Award?!
The Liebster Award is an online award given to new bloggers by other bloggers, to recognize their efforts. Of German origin, the Liebster Award is like a ‘pat on the back’ saying, “Keep going little one -your work counts!”
In life, no matter what we are doing, we all need encouragement. 🙂
I love Birgit’s positivism that is written all over her blog. You cannot possibly leave her blog without a smile on your face. Based in South Africa, her bright personality shines through in her blog posts.
Joy Sheehan is true to her art; she is not afraid to tell it like it is on her blog! Hailing from New York, she is passionate about wildlife, particularly reptiles and amphibians. Now that is authentic courage and passion.
Thank you Birgit and Joy for nominating Scrapbook Journeys for this Award. I am truly encouraged and humbled. I look up to you ladies- thank you for the lovely thought behind the nomination. 🙂
To spread the love, I will nominate 5-10 blogs, a little later on.
Birgit asked me to share 10 things about myself. Luckily, Joy Sheehan outlined some questions on her post, so here goes:-
What are 3 facts about yourself?
I talk to myself-a lot! I have conversations and laugh at myself. It makes life more interesting-I guess.
I can be a perfectionist, particularly when I really care about something. Sometimes I have to remind myself to slow down.
I appreciate a good cup of tea, anytime 🙂 😉
What is your blog’s niche or focus?
Travel and lifestyle.
Why did you start blogging?
I love writing as well as traveling…it’s a Yin meets Yang, sort of thing.
I hope to inspire others, like me, who have dreams of travel, but don’t know where to start. My daily mantra is- ‘Start where you are’, and ‘You do not have to go far away to travel’.
What is your favorite city or country and why?
Rwanda has been my favorite so far. It is breathtakingly beautiful- there is a scenic view everywhere you turn! The people are super friendly.
Taking Walks in Rwanda 🙂
What has been the most frustrating thing about starting and running your blog?
Finding someone who would bring my vision to life was rather tough. Thankfully, I have met some amazing people through the frustrations, and it was all worth it.
What is one thing from home that you crave while traveling?
My bed! 🙂
What is your favorite travel item or product?
Converse! 🙂 They are super comfortable and perfect for sightseeing.
What is one major accomplishment you hope to achieve for your blog?
To get published on the Huffington Post and featured on BBC. A girl can hope! 🙂
If you could collaborate, partner, or work with one brand or company who would it be and why?
Certainly Converse. I love their brand! That, plus Converse comes with me wherever I go! Honestly guys, think about it…we are a romance waiting to happen!
Which social media channel do you love the most and why?
I would say Pinterest, as it is such a wealth of information! It was a great help when I was setting up my blog, and is still a wellspring of ideas.
If you could travel to 3 new countries this year, where would you choose?
Whoa! God, I hope you are paying attention! I would looove to travel to South Korea, South Africa and Sri Lanka. 🙂
Now to the best part… 😉 I am happy to nominate these amazing bloggers for the Liebster Award; they are each killing it in their own special way 🙂
