What is the Liebster Prize?
The Liebster Prize is an award that exists only on the Internet and is awarded to bloggers by other bloggers. The first case of the award goes back to 2011. Liebster in German means sweet, kind, dear, charming, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. It really is an excellent way to meet other bloggers and gain more visibility in the community.
There are some simple rules to follow:
Add a link to the Official Liebster Award page in your blog post the Global aussie:
- Thank the blogger that nominated you and give a link to their site.
- Do a post to show your award. Answer the questions given to you.
- Nominate 5 bloggers or more.
- Create more questions for your nominees to answer.
- Let each nominee know you’ve nominated them and give a link to your post
Here are Huguette’s questions and my answers to them:
Can you recall a moment that took your breath away? Describe it.
There is only one that comes to mind immediately. The first moment I held my son after a long and difficult birth. It was both wonderful and frightening. I don’t know who was crying most. Him or I.
Would you marry a person from a different religion?
I already have! Here in Northern Ireland there is a traditional ‘divide’ between two particular Christian faiths. Catholics and Protestants. Although I am not a practicing believer I was raised Catholic. My then wife was Protestant. Thankfully neither of our families were concerned about the perceived ‘divide’. As for my wife and I then being in love was greater than any faith.
What makes you smile instantly?
Oh gees. I’m going to sound really soft here but it’s when I hear my boy giving a hearty, truthful laugh. Knowing he is happy in that moment puts the biggest smile on my face 🙂
You have a gun and murder is not a crime at all, whom would you kill?
Regardless of it not being a crime I couldn’t take another life. However, if I had to kill someone, it wouldn’t just be one. Any and all gun manufacturers. Let them reap what they sow.
You woke up and you’re 5 years old again but you remember your entire life you already lived, how would you act? What would you change?
First off, I would actually be a bit depressed. I would feel so sad about the life I was living and now have to miss. It hasn’t all been good, or easy, but I am pretty happy with where I am now, the people I have in my life, and the direction it is taking. One thing I would change would be to never to start smoking marijuana.
What’s your best quality and worst trait?
I would say my best quality is I am very empathetic. I can’t stand seeing people hurting or suffering. If I could wave a magic wand to take that away from people I would.
Oh my worst trait…I am quite fiery. If I feel wronged or put upon I will let that person know and may be quite vicious verbally in doing so. Even though I’m quite small (5’5″) I have a big mouth!
My questions for the following nominees are:
1 If you had no electricity and 24 hours free time how would you spend it?
2 You have the choice of knowing when you are going to die. Do you find out? or not? Why?
3 If you could change one thing about the world what would you choose?
4 What is your favourite thing to do?
5 Movies, music or books. You can only have one of these for the rest of your life. Which one would you pick and why?
My nominees are:
There are plenty more who deserve to be nominated and some who already have been. You all are great!
Much love to you all!
