Some great news!
The lovely Jennifer Durrans from Outside of the Box has nominated Nikkipedia for the Liebster Award for new bloggers! I really appreciate your nomination Jennifer, thank you very much.
Jennifers nomination for me stated:
http://nikkipedia87.blogspot.co.uk – ‘a blog about life, reviews and so much more’ really honestly written!
That really means a lot to me because I want to write honestly about life, things that have affected me and anything that interests me. I hope to be able to help or encourage anyone with my words.
The rules for this are I have to answer Jennifers questions, nominate 11 blogs and then provide them questions to answer. So lets get down to the nitty gritty; here are the answers to Jennifers questions:
1. Where is your favourite place to be in the world and why?
I love being in Newquay, Cornwall, UK. My fiance and I regularly visit here for our holidays and I absolutely love it! The way of life in that area of the country is so laidback. I love that I don’t feel as anxious about walking down the street like I do at home. Topless surfers are a plus too though *wink wink*
2. What excites you the most about blogging?
I’ve found myself just wanting to write. I wanted a new creative outlet and thought this would be a great way to go. Its also a good feeling to know that if someone is affected by something I’m giving advice about I am helping them.
3. If you had to choose one colour to wear for the rest of your life what would it be?
I think black. I’ve always loved the look of smart black clothes. Its a colour I’ve always felt comfortable wearing.
4. How do you relax and wind down after a long day?
Definitely getting comfy on the sofa with a drink and either a video game or watching TV or a DVD with my fiance.
5. What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?
In 2015, while visiting the zoo on holiday, we were at the lion enclosure. They were inside their house behind glass but I couldn’t see them properly. My fiance could see what was coming and said “This glass doesn’t look very thick”. As soon as he said it the very large male lions head shot right up the glass in front of me. Needless to say, I jumped a mile. We still laugh about it now.
6. How do you schedule your blogging around your life?
I’ll always keep notes on ideas for posts, but I usually prepare my blog posts in the morning before doing anything else. I then have the rest of the day for what ever else I have to do.
7. What do you look for in other people’s blogs?
Usually, I look for blogs based around my interests or new things I’d like to try. Its also helps me if I feel a connection to the writer through their way of writing. I try to incorporate this in my own blog.
8. What are you doing this evening?
Some parts of this evening will have to remain a secret until after the 27th February as it concerns my fiances birthday surprise *excited!* We’re also settling down to watch Saturday night TV.
9. What is your favourite animal and why?
Penguins! I absolutely adore penguins. They look so clumsy on the snow and ice but in the water they are so graceful. I’d like to think they were like me when I was a swimmer and I am a little clumsy. I just think they are little cuties.
10. If you weren’t blogging, what would you be doing?
If I wasn’t blogging right now I’d be doing housework. We can always take a little time out of housework for a bit of blogging, right?
Thank you for your questions Jennifer! Now for my nominations. Obviously I can’t nominate everyone, but I am happy with the 11 I’ve chosen:
She puts a lot of effort and time into the blog posts she makes, and are very informative posts.
“I am just getting into fashion and fitness. If you are new to either of these two, please join me!” Definitely caught my eye with this and her posts. Its two new topics that I’m getting interested in.
