The Liebster Award is an online award given to new bloggers or those with less than 200 followers. It’s a way of promoting your own blog, other people’s blogs, and support the blogging community. Which I find absolutely amazing!
This morning, as my husband drove me to work, I got a surprise in my inbox.
I was nominated for a Liebster Award by the wonderful A.M. Bradley at Akaluv https://ambradleyblog.wordpress.com/. Thank you for thinking of me!
A.M. Bradley was one of the first bloggers that I had stumbled upon after joining wordpress. She described herself as an amateur author, though I disagree because she has fans of her work and she publishes her stories online! She is no amateur when it comes to writing, especially since she is certified in Creative Writing. Her stories involve fantasy, action, romance, and mature content.
As, I already mentioned, she was one of the first bloggers that I have stumbled upon. I really like that she posted two stories, broken down my chapters, was open to constructive feedback, and that she created illustrations! I love it when authors post illustrations that depict events or characters from their short stories, novellas, and novels. The first story that I clicked of hers was “Love for an Angel,”and the second was “Clash of Tides.” I absolutely adore the world that she has created in “Clash of Tides”and highly recommend it! I am still reading it and didn’t get to meet all of the characters, but I’m looking forward to the experience. So, if you would like to read a novel online… especially one that involves mermaids, visit Akaluv’s blog! Again, the link is: https://ambradleyblog.wordpress.com/.
The Liebster Award rules for 2016:
A.M. Bradley’s Questions:
My answers to her questions:
1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
Other bloggers and authors. When I was researching marketing techniques for promoting my novel (s), most online articles and bloggers have suggested that authors cannot succeed without a blog… so here I am with a new blog… a total newbie if you will blogging about stuff other than just about my novels.
2. What is the main topic of your blog?
Those the title of my blog, “Where Dragons Reside,”could be misleading, in a way my main topic of my blog are dragons. I adore dragons and have them appear in my writing in different forms. Though, since I cannot just blog about my favorite dragons (Villam, Ri, and Ra), I tend to blog about book reviews, writing tips, and about my beautiful cats. You may be able to find some random posts because sometimes being random brings out the creativity in me.
3. What are your goals and aspirations?
I would really love to earn a phD in Geography in the next few years and of course continue sharing my stories with the world.
4. What would you like to be doing five years from now?
Five years from now, I would love to live in a house with a big back yard. It also wouldn’t hurt to have my phD and have my trilogy complete and published!
5. What was the happiest moment of your life?
It was when my family have been reunited after years of being apart.
6. How do you feel about the future?
It is full of possibilities! Bring it on!
7. What advice would you give to other bloggers?
Don’t force yourself to blog everyday, only blog when you want to share something with others.
8. What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about my family, my writing, and dance. I have been a dancer my whole life and when I hear music (wherever I may be – example – store), I break out in dance. I don’t let weird looks stop me from enjoying myself because all of us have one life to live so let’s live it to the fullest.
9. What are some of your hobbies?
Needlework, dancing, and writing. Need I say more?
10. If you could have one thing, what would it be?
Health for my entire family. That would make me very happy.
11. What is the best way to spend your day?
With a coffee in my hand, at a bookstore, writing my next novel or people watching. After that, a nice dinner with my family and watch a family movie.
