Liebster Award - Mum's First Diary


So I wake up this morning to whole bunch of thoughts. How much cleaning I have to do, washing and general jobs around the house. Instead of getting up and actually doing them I do what most people do, and that is check all of my notifications/social media networks on my phone!

I notice a tweet from Mum's First Diary, a blog that I follow on my Twitter, nominating me for the Liebster Award. What is that, I hear you say? Well here is a little definition, or explanation if you will, that I pinched from Wording Well - The Liebster Award.

  • This award exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers.
  • It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart and boyfriend (really?)
  • It follows similar principles as a chain letter, in the sense that it should be passed forward to a certain number of people.
  • Marketing plays a role in accepting this award, as other bloggers are promoted. (This is not a bad thing, however, since people should help others!)

In few words, the idea is to promote other blogs in the hope your blog is promoted too. It's a brilliant concept, if you ask me!

So where to begin? I started my blog in January 2014, nearly 2 months after giving birth to my son, Theo. As my 'nominator' Mum's First Diary does, this is like a diary for me in years to come but also to share my thoughts/feelings/advice about being a mother. If one word of my blog can help or support someone in need, or in a similar position then I'm happy!

I love blogging and no one will stop me! So, here's a high five to the Liebster Award.

  • What's the best decision you ever made?
  • If someone asked you to give them a random piece of advice, what would it be?
  • Who would play you in a movie of your life?

Here are the answers to your questions, Mum's First Diary.

  1. Why did you decide to start a blog? I probably already answered this, but when I gave birth to my son I wanted to share, and remember, every moment.
  2. Who has supported you through the whole process? My husband, my family and my friends. I can't pick just one person!
  3. Have you thought on giving up? I've had moments. Being a mum, as you all know, is hard work and I don't ever want to lose focus that it is my priority. I'd rather take a break if I need to, than pressure myself and end up finishing blogging.
  4. What is your stimul to continue? Theo. And the people that read.
  5. What has been people respond so far? I've been lucky to have lots of positive responses!
  6. What is your dream job? This is hard. I'll be honest, I don't have a particular dream role in mind, but I would love to do any job that helps people. I guess maybe a doctor or surgeon!
  7. Do you believe in fate, and if yes, is there something that has convinced you? I most definitely believe in fate. And karma. You make your own fate, and what goes around comes around! Be good to one another, and you will get good things in return.
  8. Describe yourself with one word? Independent.
  9. Favourite quote or motto? “We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
  10. What is the last thing you bought? 2 pairs of jeans, and a full length skirt. 
  11. Where is your favourite place to write your blog - office space, cafe, sofa...? I always write at home on my sofa. I think, once I need more motivation I'll be out and about for sure!
