I am very pleased to announce that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the graciously beautiful Amber of The Suburban Socialite, a beauty and lifestyle blog. I’ve only recently gotten back into blogging, after taking an unexpected hiatus, so this nomination was quite the surprise. I am very happy that Amber chose this blog as one of her nominations and would like to give a big THANK YOU to her for considering me.
The Liebster Award is passed throughout the blogging world and given to newer bloggers with smaller followings, as a form of recognition for creative and valuable content. Accepting this nomination comes with a few minor rules:
Acknowledge the blog that nominated you and display the award.
Answer the 8 questions that the blogger gives you.
Give 8 random facts about yourself.
Nominate 5 blogs and notify them of the nomination.
Give them 8 questions to answer.
Here are the 8 questions Amber gave me:
1. Why do you blog?
A: Blogging is way for me to get my creativity out there. Miss Monet started because there weren’t any fashion blogs like this one. I wanted to create something different and offer content with my own unique spin that readers weren’t use to seeing.
2. Facebook or Instagram?
3. Who is your favorite author?
A: There’s so many. From a fashion perspective I’d say Teri Agins, journalist for the Wall Street Journal and author of The End of Fashion and Hijacking the Runway: How Celebrities Are Stealing the Spotlight from Fashion Designers.
4. Who or what motivates you?
A: Well written and researched information motivates me to write better content.
5. Who is your favorite superhero?
A: I’d rather choose a villian.
6. If you could go back in time and change anything, what would it be?
A: American slavery.
7. What was your favorite subject in school?
8. What is one goal you would like to accomplish in the next 5 years?
A: Turning my blog into a business.
