About Liebster Award
The Liebster Award has been around since 2011. It’s an internet award that you pass on the other new bloggers who’s reads you enjoy. As a result the readers as well as the nominees get to discover new blogs. Importantly you have to accept before you know which interview questions you will receive. As I believe we should support each other, I accepted the nomination without knowing what questions will come. In this post you can find some very personal answers and by reading them you will get more insight about who I am and what inspires me.
The questions I got from Bibi are listed below and I am giving you my very honest answers.
What fascinates you most about blogging?
Blogging is very social and being a social person, I enjoy reading other people´s stories. Sometimes they are impressive. It is fascinating to me how the technology has changed and now we can get to know people who live in the other part of the world and connect with them. I like sharing my life experiences with others. Passing on my passion and ideas to inspire other readers who might share the same thoughts or issues.
What makes you laugh?
Usually, the little funny things. This can be a joke someone tells me or just kidding around with my girls. But also seeing my friend´s twins, who are 2 years old and such sweethearts that your heart melts when you hug them.
What is the one thing in your life you want to do?
This is a very good but also a difficult question, as there are so many things I still want to accomplish. There are so many cities I want to visit, so much still undiscovered. What I would really like to do once in my life is to take some time off and travel wherever the road takes me. No plans, no pre booking – just go along with my intuition.
What is your passion and do you write about it in your blog?
My passion is fashion and beauty. This is why the focus in my blog is on those topics.
What was your biggest challenge as a blogger so far?
The biggest challenge definitely was setting up the website by myself. LOL Everything after happened easily.
Who would you like to meet once and have a chat with?
What are your 5 personal values that help you when blogging?
Authenticity, professionalism, high quality and curiosity. Everything I write about is very authentic. It is who I am and what I think. High quality content is the priority. Last but not least – my stubbornness. I never take no for an answer, I will go and find new ways – keep going and never give up.
How can you best switch off?
By going somewhere far away – alone. I am usually taking two weeks a year to go to India by myself. Sometime we all need some time for ourself. In everyday life the best way to switch off is to play with the kids. They give you so much positive energy, change your perspective and remind you of who you were before the world started to change you.
Who was your idol as you were a kid?
I didn´t really have an idol. At least I can´t remember anymore LOL
How do you keep yourself going when everything goes wrong?
In those days I keep believing that everything will turn up well at the end. I believe everything that happens, happens for a reason. And we all know – what doesn´t kill you, makes you stronger. And I read books.
What has been so far the best moment connected to your blog?
Besides all the motivating comments I get on a daily basis, the best moments are definitely when meeting new friends – lovely girls, who are sharing the same passion and same dreams. I am extremely thankful for those friendships.
