I’ve Been Nominated for a Liebster Award!

I almost forgot about this!

Life happened to me with the arrival of Baby Number 3 and it has been chaos in the Balayan household since. It’s a beautiful kind of chaos though for we are all head over heels in love with our little Raven.

We are slowly settling in our new setup at home and so I hope to be more active once more here.🙂

So what exactly is a Liebster Award, you ask?
liebster-blog-awardThe Liebster Award is given to up and coming blogs, aiming to discover new bloggers and welcome them to the ‘blogosphere’.

I’m thoroughly flattered that my then-one month old blog has been noticed🙂 Thank you Bhebs of www.ricomeetsbhebs.com for the nomination!

So how does it work? You basically answer the nominator’s 11 questions, nominate 11 more bloggers and ask them your own set of questions. Easy right? Let’s get on it!

Questions from Bhebs:

1. What motivated you to launch a blog?

I felt like I was being stagnant and needed a change, a distraction. I’ve been itching to write again and felt that a blog is the perfect avenue where I can once more share my thoughts.

2. Do you already have friends out of blogging?

I already have friends who were into blogging, does that count? Haha. The blogging community is very supportive of each other and I’m glad to say that I’ve meet some nice people who helped me with my blogging journey🙂

3. Where do you get the ideas for your blog posts?

Past and present experiences.

4. What do you think is the most embarrassing thing that ever happen to you?

I’m so flat-footed that I fell face first more than once sa Pedro Gil LRT station when I was in college.

5. Which is your favorite place in the world and why?

Inside a basketball arena. I just love the energy and passion of fellow fanatics, specially when were watching it live!

6. If there is a trait that you want to change, what would that be and why?

I tend to procrastinate. I’d like to believe that I work well when under time pressure but in reality I’m just putting unnecessary stress on myself by delaying tasks.

7. What is your favorite season and why?

Summer. I’ve had enough traumatic experiences with the rainy season that I’m okay to bear the heat instead.

8. If there’s a time machine, where do you want it to take you; past or future and why?

May 2000. I’ll spend more time with my dad.

9. What is your dream career?

Always wanted to be a writer.

10. How do you see yourself 5 years from now?

Hopefully, a stay at home mom na.

11. What is your favorite blog and why?

It’s actually my secret guilty pleasure, dlisted.com. It’s all chismis and the main blogger is really mean but in a funny way. (please don’t judge me guys :))
