Liebster Award


YAY! I have been presented with the Liebster Award by Mimosa at The award is German and the name actually means (something like) Dearest Award – so that’s nice!


Here are the questions I was given, along with my answers:

  1. What was your first post on WordPress (please provide the link)?
    My first proper post was me trying to get people to smile (
  2. If you were given a chance to meet the people following you in WordPress who would you meet first and why?
    Aw, c’mon – if that kind of thing was possible it’d just be one big party! Everyone would have to come and we would have a real banging time. 🙂 Besides, it would be so unfair to pick one when you are all so wonderful!
  3. When do you generally write – morning, daytime, evening or night?
    I write in the daytime mostly, then some in the evening. Night is reserved for sleeping. 🙂
  4. Which piece of your writing is closest to your heart?
    I actually like a lot, if not all of what I write, but one that seems to resonate with me is an attempt at poetry called Home: (
  5. What does writing mean to you?
    Writing is a way for me to open up a porthole to the inside of me so that everyone can see what I’m made of. It is also there so that I can explore some of my tortured musings on life, love and the nature of humanity. Actually – none of that is as true as this: I am wonderful and I want you to know about it!
  6. How often do you write?
    I write a new post every day, sometimes two per day, unless I’m out of range of the internet. I also reply to all comments.
  7. If you have to choose between writing and wealth, which would you choose and why?
    Oh, writing – definitely. Writing is my wealth. But I will be releasing books too and I fully expect you to buy them, my good, good friends!
  8. What is the best and most beautiful thing of your life?
    Oh, how many things can I choose – there are so many! I think freedom to be who I am is the best and most beautiful thing ever.
  9. What is the source of your inspiration for writing?
    My own thoughts are the basis for all my posts. I am doing a set of Writing Tips that use the headings from a book called ‘1001 Ideas That Changed the World’ at the moment, but once the header is typed, the ideas are all mine. My own life is my inspiration too.
  10. What type of person are you (in five words)?
    Ebullient, curious, challenging, creative and charming. Hmm – a lot of words beginning with C there – I wonder what that’s all about.
