I have received my first ‘blog award’, just a month after starting Let’s Get Searchical! Thank you very much to Organised Clutter for the nomination.
The Liebster Blog Award is awarded to bloggers by other bloggers – making it a fun award for us in the blogging community. It recognizes blogs who have a small following, especially those who have less than 200 followers.
Okay, so I know these things are as bad as ‘Like this picture or 100 puppies will die’ on Facebook, but it’s still nice for my blog to be found and ‘nominated’ so I’m going to join in and keep the spam going!
The following are the rules for those who have been nominated:
- Post eleven facts about yourself
- Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for people you’ve nominated
- Choose eleven people to give this award to (with fewer than 200 followers) and link them in your post
- Go to their page and tell them
- Remember, no tag backs!
So, going by these rules, here are the 11 Facts about me:
- I graduated in July with a BA Business Management Degree
- I work for a Digital Marketing Agency as a PPC Account Executive
- I’m a digital geek. This is my own personal blog that I do for fun!
- I volunteer in Romania with kids in a poor Roma village, it’s a huge part of my life (The charity is Aid For Romanian Children)
- I’m a huge football fan and support Bradford city. I played for about 10 years, until about two years ago
- I live with my fiance and am currently trying to save for our wedding (but we keep spending our savings on holidays!)
- I’m an adrenaline junkie. Did a sky dive for Romania and am doing a bungee jump soon!
- I love hats
- I’m ridiculously unfit for my age and small size
- I love snow boarding, but am not very good!
- I’m allergic to wine and vodka (not really, but they don’t agree with me!
