I feel so honored to have been nominated by such a talented blogger for the Liebster award! If you haven’t been to A Hero’s Wife‘s blog, I highly recommend my readers to check her site out. She shares her experiences of being married to a Marine who suffers from PTSD. There is so much to learn from this lovely writer, which is why I am thoroughly excited to have received a nomination from her.
If you are nominated for a Liebster award this is what you should do:
1. Post the award on your blog
2. Thank the blogger who presented the award to you and link back to their blog
3. Answer the questions given to you by the nominator
4. Nominate 5 to 10 bloggers with less than 200 followers
5. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer
6. Notify your nominees by posting on their blog
The questions I was asked were:
What is your dream job/lifestyle and why?
I wish I knew the answer to this question. I thought I wanted a career in film, then music, then public relations. I’ll never know until I can try them all out. Overall, I’d love a job that allowed me to use my creativity, intelligence, and have a little bit of fun while doing it!
What is/has been a big struggle/difficult time in your life and how do you think you handled it well? Looking back what do you wish you would’ve done better?
My career has been a big struggle. I wish I would have tried to intern while going through school (although I worked two jobs and completed a four year degree in two). The most common phrase I hear when being denied a job is, “We picked someone with more experience.” Had I worked on that experience while in school I feel I may have better chances now. However, I am still young and have time to land a job I will like.
Why did you start blogging?
I missed out on a job opportunity for a social media position because of my lack of blogging experience. I decided that it would be a fun hobby to acquire, so I started The Broke Savvy Blonde! It has been a great outlet for my thoughts and desires for being a writer.
What is the one most important thing you want to get across to your readers?
No matter what, be a good person.
If you could meet and spend the day with anyone dead or alive who would it be and why?
I would like to spend a day with Jerry Seinfeld. I have thoroughly enjoyed his acting and comedy since I was a kid. I’d love to pick his brain on how he got to where he is and advice he has for someone at my age trying to get into the entertainment industry.
What struggles have you faced with your blog/writing and how did you overcome them?
I feel guilty when I spend a lot of time brainstorming or writing on a topic. I work a full time job, manage an online business, help my mother out with her business, constantly looking for a career, and always trying to find time for my boyfriend. When I’m not doing all of those things, I feel that I should be. I have not found an effective way to overcome this guilt, but I persevere and write anyway!
If you were given a million dollars to use only for good/charity/ext how would you use it?
I would give it all towards charities and organizations that fight for the well-being of animals. They are innocent, defenseless, and in a bad situation due to a human cause. I would love the chance to help them all if I could.
What is one subject/issue you wish you could write about and discuss but either don’t know how to address or haven’t yet?
What is one thing you would like to accomplish in the next 5 years? In your lifetime?
I would like to land a career that will help me pay off my student loans and live comfortably at the same time.
If you could go back in time and tell yourself something when would it be and what would you say?
I would go back to my 16 year old self. I would go into more detail, but my next blog post is exactly about this! So stay tuned 🙂
