Liebster Awards!

Guys, I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Awards! *Cue the clapping track* Thank you so much to Angie from The Charming Misfit for the nomination. 

For those of you who don't know the Liebster Awards is an awesome way for bloggers to acknowledge other up and coming blogs. Additionally it's a way to get to know other bloggers.

And the Rules! The rules are simple, should you choose to accept your nomination(this will all be done in a post on your blog):

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog in your Liebster Award post.
  2. Copy and paste the award badge into your post.
  3. Answer the 10 questions you were given when you were nominated.
  4. Come up with 10 questions you would like to ask of your nominees.
  5. Nominate 10 bloggers who have less than 200 followers, by commenting on one of their blog posts with a link to your Liebster Award post, and a short message about nominating them.

So here are the questions i'm answering for the charming Angie. 

Why did you start your blog?

I've always been a fan of writing and photography. Soon after getting my first camera I thought about sharing little life hacks, travel photos, and other things that I've learned from the block. 

How did you come up with the name for your blog?

My blog name comes from the Freaks & Geeks quote, "I prefer to get high on life." It's such a hilarious scene and it's always just stuck with me. That feeling of having an experience or adventure so good that it makes you feel high is what my blog is all about.  

How long have you been blogging?

I've been blogging for a little over 4 years. And boy has it been a ride.

Where would you like your blog to be in a year?

I'd love to expand my blog to include other bloggers. I love the idea of making a blogger collective composed writers, poets, photographers, beauty gurus, and more. I'd also love to include more pop culture commentary because I'm a big pop culture nerd. 

Who do you look up to in the blogging community?

I have a complete and total girl crush on all the girls over at Urban Bush Babies. I love their personal style, collaboration and general aesthetic. I had a chance to take a picture of the Quann twins at fashion week and almost doubled over, that's how cool they are. 

Outside of blogging, what is your day job(if any)?

I'm a social media and PR consultant! So a lot of my job does involve blogging and getting to know bloggers from the comfort of my couch (lol). 

Share something random about yourself!

I'm in a comedy band with my best friend and roommate Katie called Colonial Williamsburg! We sing songs about our turbulent love lives and Jeff Goldblum.  

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

If I was an animal I think that I would be a cat. Four words: All, day, cat, naps. 

What do you do for fun- any hobbies/sports/etc.?

I play four instruments (piano, violin, ukulele and guitar) so that keeps me busy during my free time. I also love to cook! I've recently been experimenting with some french classics so I'll keep everyone updated on that. 

What advice would you give to someone thinking about starting a blog?

The main advice that I would give to someone who was thinking about starting a blog is to pick a topic that you love to talk about. Pick something that you can talk about for days at a time. After you have that, write down all the topics you can think of and get to writing, picture taking, or cooking. Constantly surround yourself with creative people and creative energy, and never forget why you started to blog in the first place!
