I was nominated for The Liebster Award by Darci at Life Unplanned. It's not actually an award, but a blogging challenge - you have to answer ten questions, then give ten facts about yourself. That done you're supposed to nominate ten other bloggers to take the challenge, and provide them with ten questions to answer.
As always, I've left the nominations open for whoever wants to give it a go! Let me know about your post in the comments and I will add a link to it at the bottom of this post.
Without further ado, here are my answers to Darci's questions:
#1. What inspired you to start a blog?
My very first blog was on LiveJournal about 12 years ago. (That makes me feel old!) I set it up because it seemed to be where all the cool kids were hanging out.
#2. How did you decide upon your niche?
I didn't really put much thought into it - I was just reading lots of parenting blogs while I was pregnant, and figured it would be a fun thing to do.
#3. Where do you write / create?
Currently, with the laptop perched on my knee in the living room. But I do have a lovely desk from Ikea on the way!
#4. Who is your favourite blogger?
The Toy Box Philosopher. If you collect dolls, this is the blog you ought to be reading.
#5. What does your writing process look like?
Disorganised! I always have lots of half written posts in draft, waiting for me to get on and finish them.
#6. What is your ultimate goal for your blog?
To turn it into a viable income stream...
#7. How do you come up with ideas for posts?
All sorts of ways - reading the news, going to events, chatting with other bloggers. Once you start blogging, everything becomes a potential post idea.
#8. What’s the one thing you want your readers to get out of your blog?
Useful information. I love putting together little guides on different subjects, and my main aim is just that they prove helpful to people.
#9. What are your hobbies?
Reading, writing, collecting dolls and miniatures, and comping.
#10. What’s your favourite resource or course for bloggers?
Canva is amazing. I really don't know what I did before it!
Here are ten questions for you:

- What is your favourite song at the moment?
- What was the last thing you reviewed on your blog, and would you recommend it?
- If you could have one superpower what would it be?
- If you could write a guest post for any blog, which would it be?
- Coca Cola or Pepsi?
- Tell us about the blog post you're most proud of.
- If you were murdered, which TV detective would you want to investigate it!?
