My Liebster Award

My Blog Award 

Doing the happy dance I just received my first blog award since I'm a novice I really didn't expect it. I guess people on the blog sphere are starting to like me :) The award was given by Lorelai at Life with Lorelai 

Here are the rules :

  1. You have to link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. You must answer 11 questions given to you by the person that nominated you.
  3. After completing these questions you must nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers, and give them 11 questions of your choice.
  4. You must not nominate the person who nominated you.
  5. You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link to your post for them so that they can learn about the nomination.

Lorelai's Questions and my answers :

  1. Why and how long ago did you start blogging? I love to cook, my family and I love to communicate with people so I created Mommy's Kitchen.
  2. What is your favorite craft or home decor store? Michael's in New York.
  3. Is there something you learnt late in your blog journey that you wished you knew before? I'm still a novice, so I'm learning as I go. I wish I had started earlier.

  6. What category of blog posts do you enjoy the most? Traditional recipe blogs.
  7. Where does your blog inspiration come from? My inspiration is my family and the people that reply to my blog and my cooking. Cooking in itself inspires me and gives me a thirst to write and be creative about it.:)
  8. What is your favorite post that you have written?That's easy, New York hot dogs with onions by Spyro. This was a post in memory of my dad who passed away on May 3, 2014. 
  9. Is there any post that you have been planning to do, but kept postponing for a while now? Yes, I want to incorporate my entrepreneurial skills that my dad has bestowed me with  and relate them to my blog.
  10. How did your friends and family react when you first started your blog, and what do they think about it now? They knew that someday I might do something like this and they were very happy. :) 
  11. Which blog post of mine do you like the most? It  has to be the Autumn chalk boards. It's art you can change as the seasons change. Check out her site, chalkboards .We also do that with daughter. She loves art :)

What questions to answer

I answered Lorelai's questions and I thank her for the nomination it meant a whole lot to me.
I loved answering all the questions and enjoyed it. This is a way to think about your blog and why you are writing. It sort of gives an in depth view of your blog.  Congratulations to each and every one of you on your Liebster award. Have fun with answering the questions !
