Liebster Award

I need to say a massive thank you to thefrayedendofinsanity who has just nominated me for the Liebster Award! Please check out the link below for this fantastic blog with some great posts about music and poetry – well worth a read.

I have copied the rules and pasted them below – as my nominator did when he was nominated and so on and so forth.

The Liebster Award is very unique in the fact it brings recognition to the smaller blogs of the ‘verse.  With that in mind, all of the nominated blogs will have less than 200 followers.

The rules:

1. Thank the Liebster Blog presenter who nominated you and link back to their blog.

2. Post 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions you were asked and create 11 questions for your nominees.

3. Nominate 11 blogs who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been chosen.

4. Display the Liebster Award logo.

5.  No tag back thingys.

Eleven Facts about me:
(1) I once had the privilege to meet and receive acting advice from Sir Nigel Hawthorn.
(2) I don’t eat ANY fish.
(3) My favourite ever holiday was a fortnight spent in Mexico last year.

(7) In 2001 I passed my bronze and silver stage combat exams.
(8) I have written and directed 3 original plays.
(9) I currently weigh exactly 8 stone.
(10) My shoe size is 4.
(11) I am a little bit addicted to reality TV.

The eleven questions I was asked:
(1) What defines the decade you were born in? For me it would have to be denim jackets, silver hoop earrings and the infamous perm.
(2) Why do you write? It’s something I do for pleasure, an outlet for my creativity and an escape from the mundane aspects of day to day.
(3) What is your favourite gangster movie? Not really my genre but the closest would be Bugsy Malone.
(4) What song most reminds you of your teenage years? “Don’t Look Back in Anger” by Oasis.

(6) What is your favourite swear word? Not a fan of swearing although it amuses me when my good friend says “Blimey”.
(7) What is your favourite TV programme? I am currently in love with “How I Met Your Mother”
(8) Describe yourself in three words? Passionate, neurotic and intense.
(9) Name the person that influenced you the most? Mum and Dad.
(10) Do we, as a society, value beauty over intellect? I think we idolise beauty but respect intellect.
(11) If someone made a movie of your life what would it be called? “At Chess Perhaps?” – these were the first three words I ever spoke on stage – it was my one and only line.

Eleven questions for my nominees:
(1) Which famous people living or dead would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?
(2) What is your favourite topic to Blog about?
(3) Do you have any guilty pleasures?

Thanks for this nomination! I’m working on the response post and trying to find 11 worthy blogs that have less than 200 followers. Not everyone tells how many people follow them on their page, so I might miss that qualification. I hope that’s okay.

I struggled but what was nice about it was that it got me checking out loads of newer bloggers that day and reading a real variety of blogs – I think thats the point sort of!
I really enjoy your Blog and think you deserve a wide audience so I hope it generates some traffic for you – I will definitely keep reading 🙂
