I am very excited to announce that ‘Single in the City‘ has been awarded the Liebster Award for new blogs. I am so grateful to have been nominated by Melissa at FabYOUlous Life; not least because I love love love this blog. Melissa says on her blog that FabYOUlous Life is…’a place where YOU are celebrated for everything that makes YOU beautiful, unique and of course…FabYOUlous.’ Sounds pretty dam good to me.

In her nomination, this is what Melissa said about Single in the City….
Carrie Bradshaw’s got nothing on this girl. I love her spin on being young and single in a the big city (which happens to be London in this instance.)…thanks Melissa; Got to love the assimilation with Miss Bradshaw…she’s my second favorite ‘Carrie’ 😉
As a Leibster Award winner, I have been instructed to answer 10 questions that Melissa has for me and then I get to nominate 10 other new bloggers to receive the award and answer questions that I pose for them. It is such a fun way to recognize and celebrate bloggers who are new to the blogging scene but who are already making an impact with their work.
To start things off, here are the answers to the questions that Melissa had for me…
Sciintilla: She says ‘My message is very simple: wear whatever you want and have fun doing it, be only yourself’ … definitely resonates with my own ideas about fashion!!
Sun Dragon Lady’s Cavern of Lost Words; This blog has really inspired and re-assured me that blogs can be about whatever you want them to be about. This blog features some great inspirational and thought provoking quotes.
simplylaura5word: As a Christian women It’s great to find a blog described as ‘insight into the word of God’ Laura is another women writing from the heart and looking to inspire others. In my opinion she’s certainly succeeding.
Lifeanexperience ‘Life starts the moment we start living’. Feeling uplifted and inspired after reading some of the wonderful quotes on this blog. Great way to start the day. Raj’s words really struck a chord with me; great writing and some beautiful thoughts.
teachingtinyminds: From a teacher who writes – This blog will be a great resource for early years teachers. I loved the experiences of Forest Schools (which I’m also a fan of)
poundtravel As a keen traveler who loves exploring on a budget I loved some of the backpacker budget travel advice.
thinkoutsidethebox: beauty, travel, product reviews and more. This blog has something for everyone.
mummyinatutu: Katie says she’d wear a tutu everyday if she could…I love her already; truly a woman after my own heart. Check out her post ‘the one I loved, the one I lost‘ for a heart wrenching and poignant read.
So for these fantastic bloggers I pose the following questions…
- Why do you blog?
- How do you get new readers to connect with your blog?
- What’s the best thing you’ve ever read?
- What writers inspire you?
- If you could be somewhere else today, where would you be?
- What’s the best way to spend a Saturday?
- What’s the best bit of advice you’d give a new blogger?
- If you could get one celebrity to read your blog who would it be and why?
- What are the best and worst things about blogging?
- If you had to eat one food forever what would you choose?
Congratulations to all my nominees, it’s been so much fun reading some new blogs and seeing what’s out there.
